Buffet, Buffet, All the Way!

Is it worth it? How much can you gain out All You Can Eat Buffets? If you could eat twice or three times as much, do you actually come out ahead? On the surface, it is worth it – to eat more than you paid for. But realistically, you are gaining weight by eating two or three times as much as you need. Unfortunately, the gain is never a profit in your pocket. It is in pounds on the scale.

It will be more fun and pleasurable if your goal is to explore different kinds of food that buffet restaurants offer, or to give yourself a break from your routine meals without overeating. The good thing about buffets is that they normally offer a choice of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat that first!

 A good strategy for buffet eating is to use at least the White Belt’s Eating Formula in Chapter 16 of Mind Your Own Wellness (which is to fill yourself up a little first, with a big glass of water, before you indulge).

 Imagine this: If the water were to fill your stomach up by 10 to 20% before you eat your heart out, you are less likely to gain as much weight as you did from your previous buffet trip, naturally!

Salad can make you fat!

There are at least two ways of eating salad that I know of:

Way #1:

a)      Get a bowl of salad

b)      Top it with 1 to 2 tablespoons (max.) of dressing

c)      Mix it

d)      Eat it

Way #2:

a)      Get a bowl of dressing

b)      Top it with a handful of salad

c)      Mix it

d)      Eat it

Do you practice Way #1 or Way #2?

 Way #1 is recommended. Way #2 can make you fat because of the amount of MSG, Saturated Fat, Oil, Sugar, Salt, Preservatives, etc…that are added into the dressing.

 Quick tips:

 1)      In full service restaurants: remember to ask the waiter/waitress to separate the dressing from your salad. In this way, you will have full control over the amount of dressing you will be using. If you choose to use up the last drop of the dressing provided – then you know it – it is your own damn fault! Behave better the next time.

 2)      In fast food restaurants: the portion of the salad is usually smaller than the full service restaurants; however, the packaged dressing that comes along with your salad order is often big. Yes, I understand. You have already paid for it; but you really do not have to use up the entire pack of dressing. Just a reminder: the more dressing (fat) that you eat, the more weight you will gain. Resist the temptation to use up every drop of the dressing, whenever possible.

8 Glass of Water?

My clients and audience often ask me the following question:
If I were to drink 8 glasses of water a day, where should my soda/ pop go?

Answer:

After the water! The following is the “White Belt Eating Formula” from the book “Mind Your Own Wellness“: (The easiest way to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day)

– 1 glass of water once you are awake

Breakfast:

– ½ to 1 glass of water

Your regular breakfast order

– ½ to 1 glass of water

– Between Meals: 1 glass of water

Lunch:

– 1 glass of water

Your regular lunch order

– 1 glass of water 

– Between Meals: 1 glass of water

Dinner:

– ½ to 1 glass of water

Your regular dinner order

– ½ to 1  glass of water

– 1 glass of water 2 hours before you sleep

Where should my soda/ pop fit in? Whenever your craving comes into play. Just make sure that you remember to give yourself the freedom to choose to drink a glass of water prior to loading yourself up with sugar water. Just a reminder: Water is for drinking, Soda/ Pop is for sipping!

By the way, if your were to drink a can of soda/ pop a day (let’s say it contains 35 grams of sugar per can), how many pounds of sugar would you have consumed in a year?

Is it 8 pounds, 18 pounds, or 28 pounds of sugar a year?

Answer:

7 bags of 4 pounds sugar – Yes, you got it – 28 pounds of sugar a year.

By the way, sugar is absolutely FAT-FREE!!! – Before you put it into your mouth. Once it is in your body, it will soon turn into fat, if you cannot burn it off fast enough.

Best of Luck,

Holidays – Weight Gain

Wish You & Your Family A Merry Christmas & A Wonderful New Year!

In case you are thinking of minimizing your weight gain during the holidays, the following could be helpful: Quote from “Mind Your Own WellnessPurple Belt Eating Formula

If possible:

– avoid going to a party with an empty stomach
– prior to the party, drink a glass of water and eat 1 to 2 portions of your favorite fresh fruits or salad (limit to 2 TSP of healthier dressing).
– when eating your favorite unhealthy or junk food, take smaller bites and slow down your speed of eating. In this way, you will be able to 1)taste your food better and 2) it gives your Inner Healthy Voice a chance to ask you to eat less unhealthy food sooner (Mindset: the fewer the pounds that I gain over the holidays – will give me an easier start next year).

Please note:
– a portion is approximately the size of your fist.
– 2 portions of fresh fruits could be your choice of an apple and a banana, or any combinations of your favorite fresh fruits (eat them fresh, juice, or blend them if you like).

Hope the above information is useful!

Best Wishes,

Alex
