Canadian scientists claim in their article in The Psychological Science that eating out at fast food restaurants adversely affect not only our weight but also our day to day financial decisions.
Passion for fast food may distort our attitudes, making us impatient and seeking for immediate gratification.
This haste actually has an impact on our financial decisions as we unconsciously choose immediate but minor gains over more significant long-term benefits.
The authors claim that the idea of immediate satisfaction of the need for food represented by fast food makes people buy other substandard time saving products like dry shampoos and even changes the way they experience leisure activities.
