I was messing around in the OLD OLD postings, and came across this article. Scary, and interesting. Another good point to NOT spend a whole week's salary (at least, that's what it feels like!) on the popcorn at the movies.

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

Movie popcorn also contains a lot chemicals in its artificial flavoring.
