08 – I have to go to a function that is a buffet. How do I deal with that and stay within my DPT?

Eat before you go. If you eat a simple meal before you go, you won’t be as hungry, or likely, to go above your points. Also, go and enjoy the company not the food. Be the last one to get a plate, and talk more then you eat. Put your fork down between bites, take a small sip of water after finishing a bite, or strike up a conversation between bites. That way you take more time to eat and enjoy the company you are with.
