I am writing the diet rules for myself. I want one of rules say something like this:

No additional trips to grab more food.


No additional food apart what you have on plate.

I am looking for not exact translation of course, but something like traditional expression which any French person would understand that it is about food.

Tout simplement :

Ne pas se resservir à la cantine.

ou encore :

Ne pas se resservir.

  • How about if it is happening not in canteen, but at home? How it fill be in general situation? without taking account where it is happening? Commented Mar 6, 2020 at 16:41
