A lot of people do not like it. But I am of the opinion that as long as it fits into your daily carbohydrate requirements - then you should be fine to eat it.Originally Posted by IJ300
The reason why people do not like it is because, although it is a grain (and it has a lowish GI), it's starch content is low and most of it's calories are from simple sugars.
When people begin to cut for competitions, they tend to eliminate most sugars from their diet (in favour of starchy carbs) - so corn gets cut as well.
If you are bulking or maintaining then go for it. If you are just regular 'dieting' then some corn will also not hurt you. If you are cutting for a competition I recommend you be a little more careful in adding it to your diet.
