The hill country is full of life. There are lizards around my house that are two or three inches in diameter, spiny on their sides, and really cool to hold in your hand. I don’t know if I would eat one, but certainly I would consider it if I got hungry enough. My son has one in an aquarium beside my desk, which brought that to mind. Its just a hill country/prepper combination. Lizards – yum 🙂

I live in the UK we don’t have many all you can eat buffets here but there are no shortage of overweight people around.

I have some more survival tips:

Talk while you eat…try and slow down the eating pace. This will help your brain catch up to your belly and tell you when you are full.

First plate: eat all veggies.

More importantly…if you do not eat all you can eat regularly and enjoy decent health…indulge and enjoy. Do not feel guilty!

Would it helps? Debby??

Nice post ! Buffet are definitely a bad thing for dieters and for healthy lifestyle seekers. Even if you are in great shape and willing to follow strict rules, it’s hard to resist a nice full buffet, so these few tips will be useful
Thanks
