The Scariest Thing You Will See At The Movies This Summer is the Movie Popcorn Calorie Counts

In today’s Wellness Minute Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy explain how many calories are in movie popcorn. If you want to see something really scary at your local movie theater this summer ask the guy at the concession counter for the amount of calories in each of their bags of popcorn. Once you see those calorie counts you’ll have nightmares.  At most theaters a large tub of popcorn has around 20 cups of popcorn and can get to 1200 calories, 980 mg sodium and 60 grams of saturated fat. And when you add butter and throw Raisinettes into the tub like the Fat Guy does, the number goes through the roof. If you want to go with the large tub then at least share that with your whole row or at least with the people sitting on either side of you. A better bet is the small – that usually only has around 6 cups of popcorn and is around 400 calories.  Now whatever you do – do not sneak in your own snacks – movie theaters make the bulk of their money from the concessions not from the movie tickets. So if you want to have a movie theater in your neighborhood support it by buying something from the concession stand. Listen right now to hear Dr Fitness’ tips.
