Now, i don't defend these fat and money makers but.... the science behind that concept is however, true.
Breaking a large meal into small pieces does make you feel full and prevent over eating.
I wonder if McDonalds has a meal allowance. I used to work at Big Boy as a dishwasher back in the seventies and they did.
I worked at a supper club during fish fries washing dishes and ate like a king. The owner probably had to charge a quarter extra on every fish fry to pay for the fish I ate.
Young people, between 17 and 30 who are active can metabolize this fast food better than the older people can. An occasional meal there is not bad for older people unless their metabolism doesn't allow it.
Although I am the first to say that McDonalds is for high school kids NOT for making a living wage when you are to stupid (sociologically disadvantaged) to earn more money.
I think I have more respect for a crack dealer than an adult trying to make a full time living at McDonalds. Although I know many people will complain there are no other options, there are.....

Yea I know, my dad told me the same thing when I told him that I didn't get free food there. Keep in mind this was back in 2002 and 2003, so for all I know even the 10% discount is gone now, too.

Share holders dont care at all about anything but the return on their investment. Workers still work. The world keeps turning.
It's time the president gave us advice on how to live in poverty. I suspect part of it will be to plant our own arugula gardens.
The fast-food corporation instructs workers that breaking food into pieces” will keep you full.
Most Americans eat too fast, and, as a result, they take in too many calories before they realize they've eaten enough. It takes approximately 20 minutes from the time you start eating for your brain to send out signals of fullness. Leisurely eating allows ample time to trigger the signal from your brain that you are full. And feeling full translates into eating less.
Recent research presented at a meeting of the North American Association for the Study of Obesity showed that overweight men and women took in fewer calories when they slowed their normal eating pace. And a recent Japanese study involving 1,700 young women concluded that eating more slowly resulted in feeling full sooner, and thus eating fewer calories at mealtime.
