Eating Less at the buffet


I did it! I ate less at the buffet.  This is one of the biggest challenges.  And I had only one helping and then a small sugar free dessert.  And I felt great. Did I want more?   You bet!!

All you can eat buffet tips:

** Hit the salad bar section first and fill up on the bulky low calorie items - watch the salad dressings though - go sparingly.

**Usually soup is high volume food that can fill you up without adding a great deal of calories. Studies have shown that people who eat a bowl of soup before a meal eat less with the main course.

**Pick the smallest plate available, usually the salad plate for all your courses.

**Eat slowly, stopping frequently to to chat with friends and to take a drink of water

**Decide, like I did, before you go to have one helping of the main course and load up on veggies and lean proteins. - watch for extra sauce, butter, etc that can add unwanted calories and fat.

**Indulge in fruit for dessert if possible, sugar free pies and cakes, or jello dishes.  And try to limit yourself to only one.

Enjoy the buffet!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you beat those night munchies- they can be the absolute worst!

I think your list is great. I would also add that you should ask if the food is 'worth it' as some buffets are not of the best quality and you can enjoy something better tomorrow!

Hi, you stopped by blog earlier and asked me what Chai was.

Chai is a traditional Indian spiced tea, which is served with milk or cream, and usually sugar. I brew my own and use splenda in it. I also use only 1/2 cup of non-fat milk, and one teaspoon of vanilla creamer.

I like you tips for the buffet.
