Whenever I go to a restaurant that has a buffet, I ask to order off the menu. I've learned that I just don't have the willpower for a buffet, and I'm always trying to "eat my money's worth." I'm just as satisfied with a plate of my own.
Plus, if you order off the menu, you can always ask for a to-go box and take some of your meal home.
I've found a lot of success when eating out if I ask for the "to go" box to come with my meal. I literally cut the portion on my plate in half, put one half in the "to go" box and enjoy the other half without guilt! And I have another meal for the next day. 48
