D is for Diet
Due to the Nile and the rich, fertile soil it offered, the ancient Egyptians were able to eat relatively well. Agriculture existed early on in Egypt, and cereal foods such as bread formed the main backbone of the ancient Egyptian's diet. Beer was also a staple for both the rich and the poor.

The ancient Egyptians certainly had good diets, and there has been evidence that obesity was a problem in ancient Egyptian times. Obese mummies have been found, as well as many statues and pictures of overweight ancient Egyptians.
