Is popcorn keto??

The simple answer is no. It’s corn. But, if you’re eating absolutely no carbs on the day you’re eating popcorn AND you limit yourself to a few cups of popcorn you can squeak by without knocking yourself our of ketosis.

But wait—it’s not all bad news for popcorn devotees. “If you popped your own popcorn at home using coconut oil, drizzled it with some grass-fed butter and plenty of sea salt, two cups of it would contain about 12 grams of carbs and a couple of grams of fiber,” says Whittel. So if your goal with keto is to stay under 50 grams of total carbs per day, this appears to be a big thumbs-up for those two cups of home-popped popcorn.
