Especially among children, who are the largest (no pun intended) consumers of fast foods. Millions spent on advertising, action figures and catchy jingles make fast-food icons the most popular figures in the world.

And it’s not just what we eat, but how we eat it. If you’re in the habit of wolfing something down while driving or standing over the kitchen sink, you can’t “hear” your body tell you that you’re full, and so you’ll be more likely to overeat. Eat more slowly since it can take your brain up to 20 minutes to register that you’re full.
