They may have a food addiction, which could have a physical or a psychological basis. Many processed foods have been formulated to include addictive properties with the intent of encouraging over-consumption. Some people also use food to anesthetize themselves from emotional pain.
It takes 20 minutes for the brain to register fullness. Some people still eat when they're full when they eat fast. The trick is to take time (chew slowly, savor the food) to enjoy the eating experience There are programs where obese people are taught how to eat slowly, a way of weight control. Also, eating is generally a pleasure and sometimes, the pleasure makes one eat even when they're full.
Eating fast is a very bad habit and it is a consequence of all the stress and demands of modern life; we drive long distances and our jobs are very demanding. Another thing is that we are trained from childhood to that bad habit "eat or your food will get cold" our mothers used to say.
We need to re-learn to eat slowly (Google "eating slowly" to learn all the benefits).
By the way, there are now "plates for eating slowly" that keep food from getting cold (I invented and patented them).
