I Hate the All-you-can Eat Buffet

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26 People

    Health And Hygiene

    I don't mind the concept of the buffet. I believe if people have problems controlling their eating, they are best not to go to such a place, or at least have a strategy or plan of how they will eat and what they will put in their mouths. My problem with all-you-can-eat buffets...

    My Tummy:(

    I just ate in a Japanese, American and Native buffet. I didn't eat the whole day I only drank water to get ready for the ultimate buffet. I was drooling the moment I saw the food. I heard a background music of "Feels like Heaven." I targeted to have 8 rounds in returning to the...

    All I Have to Say On the Matter

    My entire rant on this particular distasteful subject will consist of a single sentence, if and when I ever decide to type it out. It is here waiting inside of my head. I hate them, they make me physically sick to see them.
