Bang For Your Buck: Eat More Before a Buffet

Many people tend to skip meals before a buffet, just so they can chow down more food. In fact, in a recent Are You a Penny Pincher SavvySugar poll, 39 percent said they skip a meal before a buffet and 20 percent said they do that occasionally. Reader  disagrees with that mentality and shares her buffet tip:

Actually, you're supposed to eat before a buffet! just something small! If you don't eat at all, your stomach stays "small" and at the buffet, you don't end up eating much if you've actually prepared your stomach to "stretch" by eating earlier, then you can eat more! At least, that's what I've heard and this is actually how it works for me!
