I am new to Nutrisystem and I love going to the movies..

How bad is movie theater popcorn if you do NOT get butter on it? Does it count as listed in the book? Or is it still considered bad. How would it count for your daily meal planner?.

I know I can't eat a tub of it but a few cups would be okay, no?.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!.

Your question was: How bad is Movie Theater popcorn?.

No, a few cups wouldn't be okay. Movie theater popcorn is popped in fat. Like Luvs article says, it's extremely high calorie. Bring air popped popcorn from home or an Nutrisystem dessert, but stay away from buying any food at a movie theater...

Pam's Chick Flick Movie Treat.

1 Package NutriSystem Rainbow Delights (dessert).

2 tablespoons raisins (or any other dried fruit in the appropriate portion) (afternoon fruit).

6 almonds (or any other nut serving in the appropriate portion) (dinner fat).

1 cup air-popped popcorn (free food) OR 3 cups air-popped popcorn if you have a CARB serving from somewhere else in the day.

Mix together in small Ziploc bag and enjoy..

Have your Dairy/Protein (i.e. Yogurt) from the afternoon snack as your after dinner treat instead of dessert...

I alway pop an 100 cal bag of popcorn , and bring it in, with water, an apple and somtimes a bar. Movie popcorn is no good for anyone...

I paid 4.50 last night at the movies for a BOTTLED WATER!!!!..

Why do you think it TASTES so good? It's BAD. Even without the butter on top. I worked at a movie theater in college, and you should see the oil that it is popped in. badddddd.... but it tastes soooo gooooddddd!!!!.

I love the alternatives these Nutrisystem veterans have given here..

Not to mention the sodium - you'll be hanging onto every bit of water you drink for days and days.....

Comment #9

It's a frigging trainwreck..

To avoid popcorn, do this. Have a huge salad (or your dinner and veggies) BEFORE going. Buy a huge diet coke while at the movie (realize you WILL have to rush out for a wizz). the diet soda will keep you full and keep the $$ going from your wallet into the concession top line...

I had those soy white cheddar chips from Nutrisystem the other day. They could suite as a snack instead of the popcorn at the movies...
