Popcorn is high in fiber, low in fat and readily available at most markets. Although the name may suggest that dieters only eat popcorn, this diet mainly involves eating healthy in general and simply snacking on popcorn. You can expect to eat low fat proteins such as fish and lots of vegetables as well.

Does the Popcorn Diet work?
When compared to other diets, this one is not largely recommended. The idea is that unsalted, unbuttered popcorn is low-calorie, and can be satisfying to for people who are used to snacking throughout the day. However, it tends to get boring quickly and can cause its fair share of problems. While there's nothing wrong with eating popcorn as part of a normal diet, the actual popcorn diet isn't a good idea.
People tend to quickly get sick of a bland diet, which can make the popcorn diet difficult to stick to. When you get tired of the same bland taste, you want to spice it up a bit. People tend to add butter and salt to their popcorn to make it taste better, which is a bad move as the previously healthy snack now becomes high-fat, high-calorie, and high-sodium. Corn is a common allergen and it may cause breathing problems, hives, and gastro-intestinal upsets in some people. Popcorn is also a choking hazard for small children.
Forget the boring popcorn: That will get so old after one day. This is a high fiber diet wrapped in….popcorn I guess. If you want a high fiber diet, try the aptly named High Fiber Diet.
