This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides talks about “the most important meal of the day” – breakfast. Specifically, Erica gets real about breakfast cereals, and the expanding waist line of the average American. Erica discusses the origins of “foodiness” and the anti-carnal propaganda of Kellogg’s cereals. Ever wonder how your grandparents stayed so fit eating eggs, bacon, and “fatty” foods for breakfast? Or why you crash after eating sugary cereals? All this and more in this week’s Let’s Get Real. This episode has been brought to you by Edwards.

“We expend so few calories a day because everything is done for us!”

“During the industrial revolution, people stopped physically working and started physically expanding.” —Erica Wides on Let’s Get Real
