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 dont know- i REALLY dont want to give up my snack because i love to munch and popcorn fits the bill quite nicely..haha and its so yummy. i would be really upset if i couldnt eat it anymore :( im trying to figure out if im experiencing problems due to stress or a food...(popcorn)

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.
