Hello Everybody,

When I go to a buffet style lunch or dinner, I get excited to see so many different kinds of foods!

But at the same time, I am worried about my weight control by eating all the foods I like to eat 😦

Is there any way to eat buffet without affecting your weight so much?

Actually, there are three points you may want to consider when you go to a buffet.

1. Eat a Salad or Vegetable Dish First

You may be tempted to eat foods you like first. but  take a breath and get a salad or vegetable dish first.

Fiber in vegetables slows down the absorption of sugar into your stomach and prevents sugar levels from rising  too quickly.

Also, fiber expands in your stomach, so you feel full and may not feel like eating too much carbohydrate later on.

Remember it is wise to eat carbohydrate such as bread after eating a salad or vegetables.

2. Wait for 10 minutes before getting a main dish

You may feel urged to get a main dish right after you finish foods on your plate, but wait for 10 minutes.

If you eat slowly, you may prevent overeating because you already feel full.

3.  Divide 3 sections on your plate

The problem of  buffet style is you don’t know how much food you have eaten, and the plate for the main dish is pretty big!

Divide 3 sections on your plate

1st section – foods including protein such as meat (preferably chicken) or fish

2nd section – staple such as rice

3rd section – vegetable dish such as roasted vegetables

If you plan to have a desert, make the 3 sections a bit smaller.

If you feel you overeat at a buffet, no breakfast next day could be a good idea.

Enjoy a buffet in wise and in healthy way!

Thank you for visiting my blog and ciao for now 🙂
