6. I remember the first time I measured cereal, to cut calories. I was like...WHUT?

I think the serving size listed was 3/4 of a cup. I put that much in my GINORMOUS cereal bowl and was shocked -- realized I'd been having 4 servings (and half the time putting more in later to "finish the milk" lol

I never got over that, I just gave up cereal entirely because I could never reconcile that - I always wanted more of it! I find if I have something like yogurt and fruit or eggs and spinach for breakfast it is much more satisfying and I don't get the snack cravings.
