For example, eating popcorn instead of ice cream at night, saves calories and leaves you feeling fuller. furthermore, it has high dietary fiber qualities compared to the empty calories in ice cream. Remember not to pound on the butter after popping yourself a batch. Adding healthy alternatives, like herbs and oils are most commonly used to keep the calorie count down.

It’s also, very inexpensive costing no more than a few dollars a bag. Which will result in paying a quarter or two per serving. For a single person, it can last 1 or 2 weeks depending on your appetite. Whole grain popcorn should be added to the hall of fame, on the cheap snack list.
