Feb. 14, 2013 - PRLog -- A month ago, millions of people around the world were carefully planning their New Year’s diet resolutions with determination and vigor. Many people start the year out with a strict routine, a strong will, and a zealous attitude. Unfortunately, by the time February rolls around, these goals and convictions often fall by the wayside.

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.

“It’s been rewarding to hear first-hand how people have met their health goals by simply adding our popcorn (http://shop.justpoppin.com/gourmet-popcorn-kernels.html) to their diet,” said Buck Smolow of Just Poppin. “We were surprised that people actually made the effort to contact us just to say ‘thank you’ and let us know how successful they’ve been with their dieting. Some of our customers have told us that they’ve been eating one serving of popcorn (about 1 oz of kernels, or about 1 quart popped) before every meal. As a result, they are much less hungry when they eat their meal, so are consuming fewer calories and are really losing weight.”

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/20130116/recipes/low-calorie-p...). We also came across a great article that outlines 23 recipes for seasoning your popcorn for under 150 calories (http://www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=23_ways_to_top_yo...).”
