Perhaps once you feel normal again, try having just 1 cup that night then increase gradually till u start to till bloated etc again. Then at least you know when to stop or if its really causing the problem :)

I have a bag of 100 calorie popcorn every night and do not have any problems... so I would have to say no!

The added fiber can make you feel bloated...make sure you're drinking plenty of water.

Popcorn has always been irritating to my digestive system but usually caused the opposite of constipation (sorry). Now that I have diverticular disease, I avoid it like the plague. I'm sure you don't have to avoid it, but I wouldn't recommend that anyone eat 5 cups every day, especially if it's making you uncomfortable!

If it's really bad, I would recommend calling your doctor. Otherwise, lay off the popcorn for a couple of days until the rest of it leaves your system, then add it back in slowly and see if your symptoms return. Food sensitivity is often a matter of trial and error.

ive been having kettlecorn popcorn every night for a snack (about 5 cups) and at first everything was fine, but now i find myself really bloated and constipated. my lower stomach actually hurts a little bit because i think its so full. could this be from the popcorn? i do drink water with the popcorn so i'm good as far as water is concerned.
