(274) serving size

While at the gym recently, my friend and I were discussing the difficulty of adhering to recommended serving sizes. Well, truth be told, I was discussing the difficulty while she was explaining how she actually DOES adhere to recommended serving sizes. One of the most ridiculous recommendations is listed on cereal boxes. A half-cup of cereal is a serving size? Seriously? I don't think so. My serving size = when the bowl is full.

I decided to figure out how badly I stray from the cereal recommendation. Turns out, it's kind of, um, a lot. Like around five times more. Like my bowl fits almost 2.5 cups of cereal.
