Meal a fathead eats unwisely (5)


I believe the answer is:


'meal' is the definition.
(I know that feast is a type of meal)

'a fathead eats unwisely' is the wordplay.
'a fathead' becomes 'f' (head letter of 'fat').
'unwisely' indicates anagramming the letters.
'eats' is an anagram of 'east'.

(Other definitions for feast that I've seen before include "Tuck-in; blow-out" , "Repast" , "Huge nosh-up" , "Abundant meal" , "Sumptuous meal" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
