    I totally agree with you. Initially I would just eat until I was no longer hungry, I still binged occasionally though. I wasn’t restricting any foods, I ate whatever I wanted but as soon as hunger was gone I made myself stop. Eventually I started eating until I was satisfied, physically and mentally. Like you said, sometimes you eat a big yummy meal but there there are cupcakes and you need to have one to be satisfied mentally 🙂

      Yes! There are definitely different levels of “satisfied” on different days! Some days it’s “no longer hungry” and sometimes it’s “full tummy!”
