With or without butter? :-), Seriously, popcorn is a staple of many trying to watch their weight or snack sensibly. Popcorn is tasty, provides crunch, and IS relatively low in calories. A serving of popcorn (1 cup), is about 30-40 calories, depending on how its prepared. Another good thing about popcorn:chewing it gives your jaws a workout. The longer you chew, the fuller you get! It's a great replacement for chips or torillas and other flour based snacks. The are a multitude of great tasting, light butter, natural, butter free, low salt popcorns on the market so finding one with low calories and great taste should be no problem.
