For me, buffet banquets are a hassle especially since I'm trying to lose weight. But since the breakfast came free with our accommodations for this weekend, I have no choice but to take it. However, I think I did well in sticking to my diet and only eating what I can.
Here's you can do to enjoy a buffet banquet without going overboard and spoiling your diet:
- Drinks come first. Drinking a glass of water before eating fills the tummy in an instant so there'll be less cravings to eat more.
- More fiber, less carbs. Eat more vegetables and less rice. Filipino viands often taste better when they're eaten with rice so it takes a great deal of courage to resist doing so. Have a fruit platter for dessert and skip the desserts table.
- Eat a little of everything (except for the carbs). It's a buffet, anyway. At least you get to taste all the food without ruining your diet. =)
