1. Try to plan your day so that you can go for the sushi buffet at lunchtime. This way you won’t have to spend too much money on dinner because you’re likely to be full from lunch and lunch buffets are usually cheaper.

2. Go for buffets where you can get your money’s worth, if you know you cannot eat too much sushi go for a cheaper buffet instead.

3. Don’t go to a sushi buffet hungry, have a light breakfast such as yoghurt or fruit salad to get your digestive system moving.

4. Opt for a less carbonated drink with your buffet meal, such as tea or water, stay away from beers and fizzy drinks as this will make you feel fuller much quicker.

5. Take advantage of the variety that is on offer by choosing a little bit of everything.

6. Dress accordingly; if you’re going to fill up on food it would be a good idea to wear clothes that don’t sit too tight on your body to ensure you are comfortable.

7. Read the fine print on the menu, as most restaurants have policies on wastage and don't allow takeaways from a buffet meal.
