No, actually, it doesn't. It simply says that studies have shown that, given larger and smaller portion meals to the same people, the former results in weight gain while the latter results in weight loss. Those are the facts. The how and why is a completely different question and more or less irrelevant to the question at hand.

Same reason you'd have sex when your tired. There's a certain amount of pleasure gained by eating, and, being important for survival, there's a certain amount of benefit in overeating in the right circumstances.
