Do you eat it? Is it okay to eat? Does it impact your pouch?

I didn't eat it until I was at least a year out since it's not very nutrient dense, but I do eat it occasionally now. Watch it, though - it's easy to scarf down a ton of it. It's kind of weird how much of it you can eat - although when you figure 1/4 C of kernels will pop up to about 2 cups of popcorn, then it makes sense - most of the popped part is just Water, so they go back down to pretty much nothing in your pouch.

I've eaten popcorn a handful of times (I started AFTER weight loss phase though).

Have eaten up to about 1/2 a bag of microwave popcorn (equivalent to about 2 cups) WITH butter with no issue.

I've also had movie popcorn (pre-pandemic) with butter (that had white cheddar seasoning on it) no problem. I'd like to say that I ate the equivalent of 2 cups then also, but i can't say for sure as I didn't measure and it was dark, lol.

Whether or not YOU can tolerate it, only you can determine.

P.S. I'm a sleeve and 2+ years out, 1.5 years into maintenance.

I can also eat about 1.5- 2 cups without issue. My surgeon said to wait until I was at least 6 months out and tolerating nuts and seeds well. I didn't try popcorn until I was over a year out and only a few pieces at first. It is definitely a slider food and would be easy to eat too much too quickly. When you try it pour some in a small bowl. NEVER eat it out of a bag. That's an easy way to over eat and get sick.
