Guilty of feeling twice the size you are after a buffet? Here are some tips on how to make the most out of a buffet without overbinge-ing
- Scout your choices
We hear this all the time but why don’t we do it? It’s because we get too excited. Always go for all-time favorite dishes, expensive meals and premium desserts. Always remember, quality over quantity is the key to make the most of the buffet.
- Choose your cutlery wisely
Picking smaller plates will stop you from eating too much of everything. If you want to taste everything, it’s better to taste in smaller portions.
- Turn your back on the buffet table!
I know it’s tempting. Everything you can’t cook and can’t eat everyday are displayed beautifully on that magical table. FOCUS! You are here to have a good time and enjoy the food.
- Take a break
Whether it’s so make room for more (ahem) or taking a walk, having a break will help your stomach adjust for a while to prepare it for more!
- Have tea after your eating session
Time for your damage control! Peppermint tea or green tea are good tea choices after a buffet! These will help you prevent indigestion, soothe your stomach, reduce bloating and nausea.
- Eat with your friends!
Having dinner out with friends or family makes eating a lot more enjoyable! A little chat can give you some breathing time and divert your mind from going back for more choices.
