Fast food has very high caloric density. This means that by the time a person feels full after eating, he has already overeaten. It is like eating a bowl of nuts. There is a lot of energy in those nuts but our appetite stays active until the stomach is physically full. But by the time the stomach is physically full the person has already overeaten regardless of the calories consumed and these calories amount to a big amount.
