With suggestions from organizations such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Dietetic Association (ADA), there's no doubt popcorn is a perfectly sensible snack to fit into any meal/fitness plan. Popcorn is an ideal snack because it is filling, contains fiber, and is low in calories. ACT II Butter has only 30 calories/cup. Snacks can offer a control advantage if you're dieting. A 100 to 200-calorie snack, like a few cups of ACT II popcorn, eaten 2 to 3 hours before a meal can take the edge off your hunger and keep you from overeating. The bulk of popcorn makes it satisfying. You can eat a lot of popcorn without taking in a lot of calories. It makes your stomach feel full because it takes up so much space.
