An all-you-can-eat buffet feels like a real bargain, especially at places like Aria, which is perhaps the most affordable among all the gourmet buffets in Las Vegas. You really get your money’s worth too, if you’re able to eat a lot. But if you eat like a bird on a diet, there’s no point to it.
That leads to a natural question: how can you eat more at times like these? Here are some tips that can help:
Pick a Buffet that Matches Your Food Preferences
The simple truth is that you’re likely to eat more food when the offerings are to your liking. If you’re an avowed meat eater and you go to a vegan buffet, then you’ll just be disappointed and you won’t be able to eat as much of it.
So, if you really like Indian food, then find a buffet that serves Indian food.
Go with a Varied Cuisine
This may seem to contradict the first rule, but that’s not really the case. If you like Indian food, then you certainly should find a buffet that serves Indian food. But this rule suggests that this buffet should offer a lot more than just Indian food.
The thing with a varied range of offerings is that you’re tempted to try out new things. Familiar favorite foods may get tedious after a while, but you may still find it okay to try out new cuisines. You might even find a new favorite type of food.
Eat Breakfast Before a Lunch Buffet
This may seem counter-intuitive, doesn’t it? After all, when you’re feeling somewhat hungry, you’re supposed to eat more than if you’re already feeling full.
The problem with not eating for a while is that as a result, your stomach size actually shrinks. That means you’ll have less room for the food. So, you should get a normal (not too much) breakfast just to tide you over for the lunch buffet.
And while we’re discussing the topic of room in your stomach, it’s also a good idea to go to the toilet before you get to your lunch buffet.
Try to Exercise Before the Buffet
Your doctor probably tells you to get some daily exercise first, right? So, you may as well get it done before the buffet. You probably won’t feel like working out a all after a truly satisfying meal.
Also, a good workout gets your blood pumping and your metabolism going, so you’re really ready for more food.
Start with the Priciest Options First
This is just basic math. If you’re able to eat a lot of the expensive stuff first, then you’re really getting your money’s worth, compared to eating a lot of simple steamed rice or a whole gallon of French fries. Go with salmon, king prawns, and meat joints. These are usually the most expensive items.
Hydrate Properly Before the Buffet
That means you sip water throughout the day before you get to the buffet. This helps you process the food you consume.
Better yet, have a slice of lemon with your water. This reduces bloating, helps with digestion, and also helps to prevent heartburn.
