movies puts me directly in temptation to over eat on really bad for you popcorn!
USA Today reports "A large popcorn at AMC has 16 cups, 1,030 calories and 57 grams of saturated fat. A large from Cinemark: 17 cups and 910 calories, 4 grams of saturated fat.". The popcorn not only looks good, it smells good.
So how to handle the movie theater temptation. I have been fighting the temptation by buying a sucker. I know there is no real nutritional value in a sucker. However, hear me out. A sucker's calorie count generally runs between 60 & 100 calories. A sucker takes almost the whole movie to suck on! You will not be able to pop anything into your mouth to eat if you have a sucker in it. (also suckers come in some fun flavors that you might not have been enjoying, if you are watching what you eat. So a sucker can really be a sweet treat, and a safe way to go to the movies. A little like bowling with the bumper rails up).
