  • i just bought 2 bags of popcorn kernels to help me avoid chips. i just had them w/ sea salt, but ill try these too!! thank you for the recipes!!

  • I woke up feeling sad this morning and i had the urge to binge eat. I legit popped about a cup of popcorn kernels ( air popped cause if i can avoid using oil in anything i will) and i had it with nothing but salt and some random spices. It filled a large bowl and i ate it all in under 30 minutes. I kind of felt bad but i reminded myself that pop corn is so filling that that when i eat that much I’m going to feel stuffed until and I won’t feel hungry for the whole day��

  • does it depend on what kernels you use?
    online it says 1 cup is 31cals
    but on my popcorn kernel bag is says 50g (1serving) is 170cals??

    is it organic popcorn kernels that you should use? because i can’t find any organic kernels nearby especially not in supermarkets

  • Wow I’ve been practicing healthy living and decided to make caramel corn yesterday. I need to fast for a couple or three days. I used a load of butter and couldn’t stop eating it. You’ve presented a healthy alternative. Thank you.

  • Buying a Rs.30 popcorn packet that lasted upto 7-8 servings…Really helped me with my midnight cravings..I pop them in microwave.Helped alot!

  • The last one is particularly not appealing and strange!���� And true nobody eats only a cup of popcorn. I know some of my Indian relatives flavour their popcorn with curry and chilli powder but never tried

  • Im loving the coconut curry and the salty sweet granola! Great ideas. I like to do onion and garlic powder with a spritz of low calorie oil, or a sprinkling of either vanilla sugar or cinnamon sugar and sometimes with desiccated coconut.

  • C A L O R I E D E F I C I T. You cant break the law of thermo… Ill just call Greg and have him explain it, not many know this but he knows stuff about Kinesiology

  • These recipes are so creative!! My family puts salt and nutritional yeast flakes on ours������id live to try the granola popcorn!!

  • I invested in an air popper, and it is wonderful. I add the oil later in small doses and stir to coat. I really love stove or air popped popcorn.

  • Oil is not necessary. I make popcorn without oil in a pressure cooker all the time. My favorite seasoning is nutritional yeast, garam masala, lemon and salt ��

  • I’m a little bit confused about the comment about popcorn being GMO… I haven’t found any actual evidence that GMOs are harmful in any way, so why would this cause problems? If the argument was directed towards chemicals or methods involved harvesting and processing the corn then I would understand that…

  • Its completely unusual to come across a certified clinical nutritionist that does NOT parrot the food pyramid. You’ve seen the light…..unusual and yet, refreshing. Good for you. I’ve subscribed. I like your facts-based approach.


  • What a relief knowing that I’m not the only one who suffers bloating from ��. Thanks for the informative video. With love from South Africa! ��

  • Question…if you wanted to eat popcorn it at night, is that the best time? Your MMC is slowing down anyway? I just started following you and watching your YouTube videos. Very helpful. I love popcorn but will be eating less now because I have issues with bloating. But I don’t want to get rid of it completely. It’s my favorite snack. I eat a bag which I think is 4-6 cups and that satiates me.

  • I always laugh at the per cup calorie number on the front of the bag. And it is indeed challenging to find an organic non gmo popcorn. On top of that, the oil used is often NOT expelled pressed good ones (like coconut, avocado, olive, etc) but rather it’s yucky hexane-laced gmo canola, rapeseed, sunflower etc�� I make it at home if we have it.

  • Greg: OH NO!!! i eat popcorn alot, oh no!, beside me being an IFBB pro, got shredded abs,…i forgot what point i was trying to make but i lose weight pretty easy

  • It worked for me, I did it for 30 days and lost so much weight, I did also drink a lot of water. But you do have to change your diet after, so eat healthier and you’ll continue to lose weight.

  • I agree that heavily buttered or sweetened popcorn isn’t the best snack, but if you just buy plain popcorn kernels (there’s plenty of non-GMO ones out there as well), and pop them yourself, its one of the best low calorie snacks out there. 3 tablespoons of kernels only have 110 calories, 20 net carbs, 7g of fiber, and it makes about 4.5 cups of popcorn. That’s a lot of volume for not very many calories.

  • I’m eating a big bowl of popcorn (air popped popcorn + real butter + salt) every day and somehow I’m losing weight fast. I don’t know how it’s working, but it is, so I’m going to keep doing it. I guess u don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • popcorn is great eat it with nutritional yeast high fiber, super low calorie. I welcome the little bloating i get… keeps me from wanting to binge on other stuff as a nervous eater, it has helped me a lot with the bad cravings. Obviously practice moderation. 1 2 cups a day, and I’m good. There are much, much worse things to snack on.

  • So you’re telling me if I wanted to replace chips or pretzels for my sandwich at lunch popcorn isn’t the answer so where do I get the crunch that I crave I don’t use butter I don’t use oil and I don’t use salt I just want the crunch

  • I don’t agree, because if I have 2 large bags of popcorn I become super full, like super full. Two bags are only about 500 kcal if I eat the ones with almost any oil or butter. Most of the time I only eat 1 bag. I stay full for a long time so it workes for me. (its only my opinion and experience)

  • Popcorn is the best Weightless snack usually known as something which isn’t really good. Great macros and low calorie dense. Starches or bloating might make you puffy at the moment but it’s just that! Drinking a lot of water with popcorn will make you full. Nobody eats one cup? Yeah that’s stupid because 4 cups barely has much calories. Ignore food experts and listen to people who are experts on losing bodyfat. Nobody gives a shit about insulin just have low GI foods. Because whether or not you spike your insulin, more calories means you’re not burning fats at least from your body, less calories than your TDEE means high insulin or not you burn fat

  • Nutritional Aspects of Popcorn

    A fairly modest portion of popcorn — 3.5 ounces — offers several important nutrients and impressively high percentages to consumers in terms of recommended daily intake (RDI).

    Manganese, for instance, presents 56 percent of the RDI, while magnesium and phosphorus each bring 36 percent.

    Zinc is also significant with 21 percent, and copper, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and potassium show up with just under 10 percent each.2 Popcorn contains nutrients and compounds that are associated with:

    • Regulated blood sugar
    • Improved digestion
    • Weight loss
    • Reduced cholesterol levels
    • Cancer prevention

    Another interesting thing about popcorn is that while a 1-cup serving contains 6.2 grams of carbohydrates, which becomes glucose in your body after digestion, the starch is different.

    “Popcorn contains type 1 resistant starch, which is found in the cell walls of plants. It’s present in seeds, beans and grains, including corn.

    As its name implies, resistant starch resists digestion, so it passes through to your gut primarily undigested, providing a source of nutrition for the healthy bacteria that lives in your digestive tract.

    In addition to providing fuel for your gut’s bacteria, resistant starch may also help keep your insulin levels steady, reducing spikes in blood sugar.”3

    Popcorn retains the endosperm, germ and bran for fiber that sloughs your blood vessel and artery walls of excess cholesterol, helping to optimize cholesterol levels.4 Simultaneously, your risk of heart attack, stroke and atherosclerosis — aka hardening of the arteries — is lowered. 

    For these reasons, your heart doesn’t have to work so hard; your blood vessels and arteries allow blood to flow through at the optimum rate rather than slowing down, thickening and causing problems like those mentioned above.

  • I dont know what she is talking about. I eat 45 grams of non gmo air popped corn with sea salt and pepper no artificial flavorings. Its only 30 grams of carbs and very filling. I eat it almost everyday. Im a male body builder. Lift and do cardio monday friday and im currently on a cut. 2000 cal. 750 cal deficit. Just last week i lost 3.7 lbs and this week ive lost 1.6 so far will prob be a another half pound to 1 pound by monday. 45 grams is a big bowl and is very filling for me. Keeps my hunger in check. Its very filling. Tooons of other people lose weight with it as well.

  • Everyone is a doctor ����‍♀️��. What works for one doesn’t work for others. You HAVE TO LOOK AT OVERALL DIET. Everyone is different and organic popcorn is filling. Just drink some water after.. meh anything overdone is aweful. Moderation is fine.

  • I make popcorn every Friday. I look forward to it every week, all week. I figured out that 5 cups is a serving for me… I hate that it’s only Wednesday.

  • 你可加多我一個成為男友?����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

  • love the videos..been getting good pointers as im intermittent fasting…i been hearing about no calories during fasting state as in acv drinks…my acv drink is…1. 2 Tbsp ACV
    2. Pinch of pink salt

    3. 1/2 tsp cinnamon

    4. 1 tsp Lemmon

    5. 4 drips stevia

    which all adds up to 5 calories…will this break my fast

  • not really related to this video BUT have you seen Matt Devellas video he published today about intermittent fasting? I think you should do a video on it and point out the reasons why he didn’t feel successful in trying IF. I love watching your videos; they are full of so much helpful information for IF and just about our bodies in general.

  • crap, the movies will never be the same again. I had some a couple weeks ago. I figured since I didn’t add any extra butter would be okay LOL

  • Starches are healthy. Recheck your insulin info. Sure, if it’s a snack, it’s extra calories, so have have it as PART OF your meals, (instead of rice, for example).

  • Does anyone eat one serving of anything? Try reading the label and measuring the exact amount: You’ll be amazed at how little it is.

  • All the information I’ve been able to find states that popcorn is not GMO. It’s, basically, the last corn that hasn’t been. Now all the other things you pointed out are the reasons I don’t eat it regularly. I reserve it for movies at the theater. Of course I get the large, and it comes with a free refill. I am not happy with myself, or how I feel afterwards, but I survive.

  • I actually do not crave popcorn at all EXCEPT when I’m at the movie theater. So I use that as a “treat day” eating 1/2 a bucket or more with no butter. However, I did make it through my last cinema viewing and I did not order popcorn at all…and…it did not kill me!!!:)

  • Thank you for this video! I always wondering why my belly looks bloated for days after eating popcorn!! As usual, useful and helpful material! ����

  • great video Autumn:D
    I’ve been trying to get the ppl at work to check out your channel I call it PFFIF (protein fat fibre intermittent fasting) One bodybuilding colleague and her bf are vegetarians and I thought, I wonder what Autumn’s view on A) tofu blocking testosterone production in men, and B) the validity of the “eating to your blood type” theory that came out years ago. (sorry, not popcorn related directly but hopefully relevant just the same, thanks, Bob )

  • Great video! I remember hearing over and over when I first started trying to get inshape that popcorn was “the ideal” snack but every time I ate I would get so big and bloated. It took me forever to make that connection. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Hahahahaha! I cup of popcorn! You’re right that one of many handfuls of popcorn��. “Back in the day” I had an air popcorn machine… was only concerned about the fat from butter, never thought about the starches. Thanks for the info ��

  • I had been snacking on popcorn more lately so I will be more mindful to just have it as an occasional treat now. But even when I do eat it I do buy the non-gmo organic kernels and pop it on the stovetop with expeller-pressed olive oil. I don’t even add salt, either. It’s so much cheaper, too. Four bucks for one pound of kernels is a lot of popped popcorn that will last for movie nights for a while!

  • I love your channel cause u are real! My bestie mamaswole just started a fitness and mental health channel. It’s no bs and shes real too and funny. Would love for you to check out mamaswole. We need more stuff like this!!

  • Preach! I just ate movie popcorn about 2 weeks ago and was bloated for 3 days. I was JUST thinking that i have to let it go and only eat it very infrequently.

  • Popcorn has a huge amount of toxic mold, aka mycotoxins. All corn does. Mycotoxins cause lots of inflammation. Non GMO and organic, sadly, are just as bad when it comes to the mycotoxin issue related to corn.

  • Ok if movie theater’s want more money what they need to do is make the candy a lower price so they can get more money and make a more successful business

  • Funnily enough though during The Silent Film Era it was very ordinary to talk over the movie and talk to one another about whats going on in the film but then in 1927 “The Jazz Singer” starring Al Jolson was made and it was the first film with sound and then as time went by talking became exceedingly less prevalent

  • That clip at the end where it was like “Let’s all go to the lobbyyyyy to to get ourselves a treaaaaat!”
    plays at my movie theater xD (at 1:26)

  • In my family we’d always bring our own popcorn or go to the dollar store and get a bunch of candy there and stick it in my moms purse or our jackets.
