Eating more junk food than Clean food?

I was just wondering why you can eat more junk food that cleaner food?
For example, I haven't got a great appetite but I went to burger king and easily ate my way through 2 whopper meals. However, when I try to eat lots of chicken, oats or anything else healthy, I simply cannot eat it all at once.

Is this just my mind playing tricks, or is there a reason behind it?

    because healthy food tastes bland and we'd all prefer a flame grilled burger?

    WHAT?!

    Since when is a flame grilled burger not healthy? I strongly disagree healthy food tastes bland

    Fatboy its due mainly to the combination of fast carbs and nutrient devoid crap mainly. Things like oats and what not have fibre which slow digestion and prevent insulin spikes etc

    Junk food tends to be mainly fibreless which means it digests quickly and also creates a spike in insulin which when it falls again means youre hungry not soon afterwards

    I've often wondered if there is more going on with regards to taste and other senses that might not be understood. I've always found I can be quite full with energy low, but micronutrient rich meals. This compares to happily packing away a few thousand calories at McD's. Never seen anything to support this, then again, never looked, lol!

    Healthy food can taste fantastic if you know how to prepare it: I'm in pre-contest diet & I really enjoy my food!

    Im also eating alot more junk food then i would like but i cant help my self!
    but im also loosing weight still, so the moral of the story from my point of view is as long as you get lots of cardio in you will still loose body fat!

    If you want to bulk and cant gain weight i see no problem with the additional of 'dirty' calories into your diet.
    However many people would instantly think of mac d's and KFC to bump calories, there are "cleaner" alternatives such as milkshakes(which some people find arn't as filling) and oily foods such as nuts etc which can easily bump calories up rapidly so i'd try these first.

    If you still struggle, i dont see a problem with a mars bar(timed before exercise even better) or mac donalds and other easy to eat foods. Just make sure you also get your good fats, protein and fibre from "healthy" foods. ~

    90% clean 10% "dirty" and other ratios look alright, it beats not getting anywhere due to appitite issues IMO.
