They were talking about movie theater snacks and they went through a run down of all the theaters popcorn and how terrible it is that its all cooked in COCONUT OIL. They were so NEGATIVE about it and said that if you eat that kind of stuff it's the same as eating three 1/4lbers in a row with a coke or something crazy like that! And that was WITHOUT the buttery-topping! They said, "Just chew up the popcorn, spit it back into your hand that's what your arteries will look like if you this kind of stuff!"<br><br><br>
Yikes!

ugh. i'm sure they ARE completely ignorant to the health benefits of coconut oil. but, to be fair, i'm sure the movie theatre uses highly processed coconut oil, which has none of the benefits we so value.<br><br>
still, it perpetuates the myth. grr.

Just add that to all the other wonderful nutritional advice doled out on that show.<br><br>
If I followed their advice I would have a diet of "healthy" cereal, skim milk, egg white omelets, boneless skinless chicken breasts, and margarine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
Oh yeah....and I would have an OB at a hospital and fully vax my kids... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

well, if they don't like it, they can't have any. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Yes, it's totally processed coconut oil in the theatres. Not even close to what we are looking for. But at least it started out as FOOD for pete's sake. Why don't they re-direct that fabulous energy and pick on something like cottonseed oil for crying out loud?<br><br>
Evie's mom...you know you want some smart choice fruity pebbles. Just admit it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Any mention of the "butter flavored oil topping"?<br><br>
Once I wanted some popcorn so badly at a movie and actually asked if they had any real butter. The kid said "no, just butter flavored oil topping". Ugh!
