Oct 31, 2018 I used to love to wreck the buffets when I was younger - I do it less often now. I'd hit up the Pizza Hut and Ryan's buffets near my college probably once a week each back when I was in school. Now that money isn't such an issue, on the rare occasions when I feel like really pigging out at a buffet, I'll usually hit up a nearby casino's buffet and chow down on prime rib, lobster, shrimp, crab, etc. Back when I was a starving college student I lived on chicken thighs, cheap ground beef, eggs, whole milk, peanut butter, bananas, wheat bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, hamburger helper, and a few meals out a week. Once I got done with school and started making decent money, I swore off hamburger helper and also started buying better cuts of beef - ground chuck, a few steaks and roasts, the occasional brisket, etc. I also gradually upgraded my choices in restaurants for the most part. But I still make the other above foods staples in my diet.
