This is based on my own experience. I decided to share it because buffets can be worth your money if you know the right strategy to make most of it. 1. Avoid Food you usually eat at home- if you eat fried chicken, peanut butter with jelly sandwich or some generic food on regular basis, Avoid them. The point of a buffet is to have an adventure and try something new. 2. Avoid carbohydrate Staples on the beginning. Rice, Pasta, bread and other stomach heavy carbohydrate foods will get you full in few minutes. Have a spoonful of most of the dishes instead. You can have those stomach fillers when the Buffet is about to end. 3.Avoid carbonated drinks- Go for high fiber drinks like fruit juice ,vegetable juice or fruit infused water. The Carbonated drinks are heavy on the stomach. 4. Eat the most expensive food first- Seriously my cousin wasted money on a buffer because she decided to eat Gummy bears, marshmallow fondue and a generic pizza instead. Meanwhile I targeted the most expensive food like lamb brisket, Roasted turkey, lobster, truffles, some organic vegetable from France that I can't pronounce. 5. Stand and walk around more instead of sitting. If you sit a lot you will get full faster. 6. Use the toilet once in a while- I digest food really fast so it is easy for me to give more space on my stomach. The Buffet I visit have a bidet. So I don't have hygiene issues using the toilet.
