To give you a rough ideas as to why not with an analogy.
A house can be built out of 2500 bricks. Two workers can lay just over 200 bricks an hour through a single day working as fast as possible, any more than that is stored or thrown out as waste. What do you think happens if they get 1500 bricks in a single hour? You can't bully them into laying more bricks if they're already working as hard as they can.
Your body is the same. You can't bully it into processing more food by stuffing yourself in a short time period. The food will go to waste or stored as fat.
