I went to an AMAZING Brunch buffet We had a gift cert $30 a head and indeed it was worth it.
James walked me around I snagged some illegal stuff and a lot of Kier friendly stuff Smoked Salmon Smoked Salmon with Dill the top of eggs benedict assorted italian meats, shrimp, and caviar
ok now at almost 2.5 years out I have the capacity to gorge or indeed eat "wash down" the food and eat again
DH sat me at the table with my plate and coffee. and went to get his. I was definitely hungry but I didn't want to be finished by the time he came back. So I ate very slow.
I took 1 bite of everything and slowly ate what appealed to my tastebuds
Now by no means did I come through with a standard stacked buffet plate (that's a waste of food)
I slowly ate and was comfortable and not full with half the food left on the plate. I pushed it away and sipped my coffee gingerly!
TBH I did get pastry when DH was ready to go up. and I had a few small things on a small plate I took the same approach I had a taste of everything on my plate and picked out the 1 thing I wanted to eat in entirety (a mini canolli to be porntastic)
So what did I learn that I'm applying?
1. Eat slow!
2. Taste what you're eating
3. Remember that your pouch is still small Make your eyes smaller!
I've felt very out of control for months. But sitting in this shmendy restaurant at a brunch buffet and not going crazy, That felt so good!
