  • Because fast food companies actually flavor their unhealthy foods to appeal to our tastebuds.
    In truth it's mostly overpriced junk. Think about the average price of just one McDonald's value meal. For just a little more you can buy enough lean groundbeef, your own choice of salt and spices, buns, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, ketchup and mustard, to have a small cookout for you and about three other friends or a small family.
    Imagine if everyone pitches in that same cost.
    Fast food isn't worth the cost, except the convenience.

  • The people that make the fast food have done a lot of research to make things that are addictive. Just the right amount of this or that. Bet you can't eat just one. And to make it worse, our bodies crave those poisons.
    It is a life style change to break those habits and addictions. Some day you are going to understand what it means that had I known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself. At age 18, you are invulnerable and will live forever. We are not invulnerable and we do pay for the sins we committed when we were younger.

  • Fast food, of the many substance addictions people face. Other addictions include drugs, alcohol, porn, entertainment, gambling, etc.

    The common denominator is dopamine release. Fast food focuses on the big 3, Salts, Sugars, and Fats

    All taste good and are addictive. We get mature highs from fast food.

    You will find obese people who are addicted to food get act addiction from depression, abuse, etc. They use food to as therapy since food is the only joy these people may get while in a abusive environment. Obese people are an extreme example of how fast food can be addictive.

    For most people it is because it is Instant gratification! You will find that theme rampant in American society!

  • I am going to write a short answer because I am lazy as fuck. Those foods are made in a way to release chemicals in our brain. Those chemicals make us feel good. Our brain gets used to those chemicals and we feel the need to eat those foods again after a few hours. As a result, we get addicted to those foods. I explained it as simply as I could.
