When it comes to weight loss, you can find that there are different trends for each decade. If we look at the diet plants from our current decade, then the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting have been a popular trend. If we go to the 90s, then the Aitkens was a prevailing diet plan, and a lot of us can probably recall seeing a book on our home’s kitchen counter. Similarly, if we go to the 80s, we will find that consuming a lot of popcorn happened to be a huge part of one’s diet plan. As weird as it might sound, this 80s trend is now making a comeback.
This is more commonly known as the popcorn diet. Now, if you are unfamiliar with it, it is basically replacing food with popcorn. There is no limit to the amount of popcorn that you consume, and there is no specified time for you to consume it. Now, you can choose to have popcorn to replace an entire meal, or to just substitute it for snacks. The results for this diet are said to be promising since a single cup of popcorn alone has just 31 calories. It is not recommended to replace all meals with just popcorn since that will not fulfill your nutritional requirements and will only result in weakness.
Many nutritionists have backed up on popcorn being a healthy snack and promote it as well, as long as it is air popped corn of course. So, if you are someone that has a bad habit of snacking and you find yourself reaching into your sweets counter or digging your hand in a bag of potato chips, you can replace your snacks with popcorn instead so that you can snack away without having to feel guilty about the calories.
