'fraid popcorn is a no no. Here's a place to look up your favorites http://www.ast-ss.com/research/food/food_search.asp

GI is glycemic index. GI is a measure of how fast a food will raise your blood sugar. Insulin regulates blood sugar, and does this by storing nutrients (glucose and aminos) in your cells. Lowering insulin helps keep you from storing all that fat you just ate.

That's the really really really short answer. Try a search on the forums, I'm sure you get lots to read.
