I Hate the All-you-can Eat Buffet

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 28 People

    Just... Ew.

    I wish I could say that I haven't been in one of these fine dining establishments in a very long time, but that would be much nicer lie. May 11th was Mothers Day, and also my stepfather's birthday. Where does my family decide to go for two special celebrations? Izzy's All...

    Eating Disorders And Buffets Is A No No

    I've had a compulsive eating disorder for some ongoing years, and I have avoided buffets since then. It's dangerous walking in one, because I know once I sit down to eat I will ruin my good cycle and starting binging all over again. I eat enoug at home to where I puke 3-4 times a...

    I Feel Its Not Very Clean

    Everyone at buffets is touching all the food so it just feels kinda unclean to me. Also I never eat enough for it to be worth while. I prefer a normal sit down restaurant. The grossest thing I've seen advertised about buffets is chocolate waterfalls that everyone dips their food...

    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.

    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...
