I find it doesnt raise my sugar as badly as most other starchy white foods. I have popcorn about once a week as my Saturday movie snack. I just have a little bit of blue popcorn (tastes better in my opinion than the yellow kind) with just a little dash of garlic salt.
I enjoy popcorn 2 or 3 times a month. One of the reasons I love popcorn is because I am an expert at the hand to mouth thing and it doesn't run my blood sugar up. So I get lots of hand to mouth, crunchy-salty satisfaction.
I eat popcorn when I go to the movies. Maybe I should stop going! However, wife and I split a medium bag, and enjoy it maybe twice a month. I find that it does nothing to the way I feel. At the same time I do limit myself on other starches on days we have popcorn. I still eat mostly salad and veggies with lean protein.
Popcorn - yes, absolutely yes! When I eat it, I have it as a supper replacement on a Sunday night. That's a long-standing family tradition - popcorn, koolaid and Disney. Light lemonaid has replaced the koolaid but nothing can take the place of popcorn!
