Is Popcorn Healthy? [VIDEOS]

The lady checking me out at Walgreen’s said she was eating a lot of popcorn to try to lose weight, and I wondered if popcorn was as healthy as she made it sound.

Fact is, popcorn can be both a healthy or an unhealthy snack.  What you put on popcorn and how much you eat play a roll.  Most of the good nutrients in popcorn are not found in the white part but instead the kernel, the part that gets stuck in your teeth.  Popcorn also contains lots of fiber.

So is popcorn a healthy snack?  Depends on how you pop it and what you put on it.
