I think it's the lack of things like fiber and proteins and so on in the processed American diet. Fiber and proteins and fats make people feel full, and thus stop eating. I've done fairly well for myself sticking to a semi-paleo diet (I allow quality cheeses and 100% whole grain breads). But what I find is that I can chow down on processed versions of real foods a lot more than I can of the whole version of the same thing.
