why is restaurant food not filling?

I find homemade food is more satiating. If i make dishes such as Lahmacun, lasagna, tom yum soup, enchiladas, or pizza homemade they will fill me up. If i go out to eat i will be hungry an hour later. This is a major reason I stopped eating out.

    Because you eat in the wrong restaurants. Simple enough. Searched just now, pre-Covid:>Restaurants in America,  660,755 in Spring 2018.

    The notion that none of those 660,000 restaurants are "satiating" is bizarre.

    The Vast amount of restaurant food is just food you can make at home for far less-in other words-Frozen and reheated.

    what does satiating mean. lol. I know for a fact u probally have never used that word in ur life, not even for an essay.

    i think at home u tend to eat faster . that is the main reason. 

    see i hate licking fingers and always use fork in house for anything except pizza, but these things people dont do in public. a lot more mindful. like at hime u would eat the chicken bone more. but in restuarant u dont.Also in restaurant depending if u are out , u might not get a too go box, if u cant refregerate it in time. 

    so sometimes u grab less food, but usually it is filling if u grab more food. So home advantage is just eating more sloppy so It seems u are eating more but not really.

    because american portions are really hearty even at restaurants.

    like white and black soul foods are more filling.

    same thing at indian or something u get ripped off. Like two peace of potatoe and soup gravyxD

    so at least black and white restaurant load u up with potatoes
