Alice’s best tips: surviving the buffet
1. survey the scene
the first thing you should do is to go take a look at all of the foods at the buffet. think about what you want and what you don’t want BEFORE you load up your plate.
2. use your calories wisely
only eat foods that are really worth the calories. fries? not worth it. you can eat them anywhere, anytime. only eat what you REALLY want!
3. use the salad plate
using smaller plates can help you eat less. i mean first of all, you can’t load as much food as you would be able to on normal plates. and also, your plate looks fuller so you think you’re eating more food. win win!
4. eat with chopsticks
apparently people who ate with chopsticks ate less than people who ate with forks. maybe because people can’t grab as much food at a time? maybe because people can’t use chopsticks as well? hmm
5. watch your drinks
if you’re at a buffet, don’t waste your calories on drinks that aren’t worth it! you know, like soda?
