Popcorn – Calorie Savings – Weight Loss
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight When Eating Popcorn
Calorie Savings – Weight Loss – Popcorn
Choosing the right popcorn is important if you want to lose weight.
Don’t forget, in order to reduce our weight, we need to reduce calories-in until it is less than our calories-out. Exercise helps us to increase calories-out but we can also reduce calories-in by making better food calorie choices.
Higher Calorie Example – Caramel Popcorn
- Microwaved Caramel Popcorn, 3 cups, contains about 280 calories.
- Four times a week, this adds up to 58,240 calories, per year
Choose Lower Calorie – Air-popped Popcorn
- Air-popped Popcorn, 3 cups has about 90 calories.
- That’s 360 calories per week; 18,720 calories per year.
If you substitute air-popped for regular popcorn in this way, you save 39,520 calories, per year.
Weight Reduction Consequences of this Calorie Saving
39,520 calories per year is the equivalent of 11.3 pounds of weight.
