Starches for the last

Starches for the last, originally uploaded by Itinerant.

My buffet strategy to get the best value for all you can eat goes like this:

- Hydrate a lot the day before to counteract the salt in the meal.

- Protein, protein protein. Avoid the starch to start as breads and rice fill you up quicker.

- Take sips of water just to cleanse the palate, as too much liquids will just fill and bloat you up.

- You do want the starch, but leave it at the end. You wont be too full to enjoy it and you want to the starch to avoid the post buffet starch craving.

- Leave room for dessert.

Oh yeah, and take your time. Why rush down your food, let it settle. Bring a book or magazine. :)

Once again you are paying too much attention to what others are saying and not enough to what your heart is telling you. You don't need advice or assistance, you just need to listen to and act on your instincts. It shouldn't be too hard.
