I ate too much on lunch, because it is free

I guess that I ate too much this afternoon, since we had a town hall meeting at my work place, and the lunch is served as catering, everything is free. I just felt free to eat whatever is available. It is provided by varsity burger, and I got 1 chili dog, 2 hamburgers, and some onion rings. I got some ketchup on the side, and it feels like I was in high school. Everything just so delicious. When I got to back, I was full, and I hate to sit down in front of the computer, I felt drowsy, and I keep on looking the clock in hope that I can drive home and take a nap right away. One piece of advice, do not over eat, it really makes your sleepy.

I don't blame you for eating too much. I think I will over eat too if there's free food. Free food is much more delicious than food bought by our own money. If I were there too, I'd overeat too.

I think we would all do the same thing. And food does taste so much better when it is free. Friday we were at church to help decorate for the Easter Egg hunt on Saturday and they had pizza for everyone. I was busy doing my thing and ate two pieces, when I got in the car to go home I asked my family how much they ate. My husband said he ate seven pieces, my twelve year old ate four pieces and my ten year old at three. They never eat that much, if we order two pizzas at home we usually have a almost a whole one left. So I carried home the three little pigs.

Eating is healthy but as people say that too much of something is poisonous, eating too much can really get uncomfortable. One can have those ugly sounds coming from your tummy, in front of colleagues. Drowsiness is another problem that is associated with eating too much. In such functions, it is easy for you to over feed but it’s not necessary.

You are different from me. When there is a party like that I can never eat. There is always food shortage as too many people try hard to get as much food as possible.

Ya, you will be so sleepy when you are so full. Then at that time, better you take a short nap. If not, you may feel so uncomfortable even sitting, standing up,... Better don't eat too much to make us too full even food is free...^^

That's so nice for your company to offer you such a great feast. I already feel very hungry to read your post. If I were you, I would also eat so much since it was free and I like those food. I haven't had a buffet for a long time. I love China

Dont eat too much that is a good suggestion. . But most of them would ignore that suggest, not only if the food is free. You can see everywhere many people are overweight because they dont listen and do a good suggestion. However your post is great to remind all of us

With times like these many of us are inclined to splurge and overeat when the food is free. I know we have tables of food set out here and there at work either pot luck of sorts or store supplied, let me tell you people hunker down and enjoy. Sometimes like you it turns into a big temptation when it's thinks you normally don't eat or can afford in your budget.

is great advice, but too it will be very bad to lie down so quick after being full as you need exercize the most i always heard if you eat and lay down afterwards then it does not get burned off and turns to fat.. that is wyh it is bad to eat late night and go to bed right after.. i usualy eat my lunch and then take a walk and walk it off.. it helps..
