Las Vegas: Famous for gambling, partying, weddings and a lot of fun. But that's not all.
The Las Vegas valley area is also known as the buffet capital of the world, and they're always packed.
But why; why are buffets so enticing and delicious?
New research from the Cornell Food and Brand Lab may have an answer to that question. Cornell Food and Brand Lab says your brain tricks you into thinking that the food at a buffet is better the more you pay for it.
Researchers called it a self-fulfilling prophecy which means, when we pay more for food, we think it tastes better.
According to an article on MSN, buffet owners are also constantly trying to manipulate you into eating less and getting full faster.
The MSN report said buffets manipulate everything from the size of your plates, bowls, and silverware to the number of starches and vegetables available. All of these tactics are used to help you eat less, which saves the restaurant money.
So, considering buffets have their tricks to get you to eat less, what are some of the tricks you use to eat more when you go to a buffet?
