We can emulate their behaviour to help us cut down on eating to excess.

First they check out the entire buffet first, without a plate. They look at everything that is being offered and size up their favorites.

Next they choose the smaller sized plates.

Now that doesn’t sound so hard. Perhaps we can have our buffet and eat it too!
