Cheat With This: Orville’s Smart Pop Kettle Korn

popBy: Kevin Larrabee, CSCS

It will eventually happen. You will cheat, no one is perfect. Diets tend to be difficult and appropriately so as your body is craving nutrients that you aren’t giving it due to the calorie deficit. If you are going to cheat you should at least minimize the damage to your fat loss goals.

When I was a kid, we went through microwave popcorn like it was water (or Juicy Juice). I would even get excited when we got the Pop Secret Pop Qwiz popcorn that was colored and a mystery until you opened the freshly popped bag (Commercial at the end of the post, you got to watch this). When I was in high school I got my first taste of Kettle Korn at a fair and was addicted, the stuff was like crack. As I became more active and more conscious about my food choices, I just stopped eating the stuff altogether.

This past weekend I had my refeed and while at the grocery store I saw this “Smart Pop!” kettle korn popcorn. A whole bag is 360 calories and will hit the salty and sweet cravings that people tend to get. You can even get 100 calorie mini bags so tracking calories is incredibly easy.

    I’ve been pretty anal about my snacks the last few years, but then I remembered that I lost quite a bit of fat while sharing a bag of low fat kettle corn almost every night. I think my share was 150 calories of sweet/salty!

    Thanks for the reminder…
