Popcorn Snacks Help Dieters Lose Weight
A gourmet popcorn company, Just Poppin, is doing its part to help people stick to their weight loss and health goals. The company says that by simply including popcorn in daily meals, people can avoid unhealthy snacks and reduce meal portion sizes. The products they recommend for this purpose include an air popper, low-fat seasoning options, organic popcorn, and a gluten-free, corn-free popcorn alternative called “popping sorghum.” Several of Just Poppin’s customers have shared their story of how these products have helped them reach their dieting goals.

Although popcorn can be a very healthy snack, dieters must be cautious about the way popcorn is prepared. A generous portion of butter can quickly turn this diet aid into a diet sabotage. Many types of microwave popcorn contain butter or altered fats that increase the calories. The favorite form of popcorn by dieters and health-conscious individuals is air-popped popcorn. Three cups of air-popped popcorn contains only 92 calories, with 19 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber. It’s an all-natural, filling, whole-grain snack.
Smolow comments, “Some people are concerned that air-popped popcorn by itself can be a little bland or dry. However, with just a little seasoning and creativity, there are actually tons of ways to deliciously flavor this popcorn while keeping it healthy. If you need ideas or calorie information, there are plenty of resources online. We recently posted to our blog with some Low Calorie Popcorn Recipes (http://blog.justpoppin.com/
