So I sat down this morning and ate my Shreddies, then I added itto the calorie counter on here, then I practically fell over!!!
Holy Crap....it added up to more than my total caloric intake for the day!! Who would have thought!
I'm starting to really see just how easy it is to not see the amount you're eating. As far as I was concerned I was eating 1 bowl of cereal. Of course it never dawned on me that the bowls we have are not really a typical bowl as far as portions are concerned. My bowls look like any other bowl out there....however, it's not a proper portion.
It's interesting to see how conditioned we are to believing we're eating a typical serving when in fact it's probably about 4 servings. No wonder our society is so over weight these days....and the food and drug industry is making millions off us.
