Absolutely. There is a difference between being full and being sated. I can eat a huge salad and feel full, but I won't have satiety (and my body physically won't be satisfied) unless I've had some protein and/or healthy fat. It is a hard thing to learn, what, exactly, your body needs right there and then, and it's frustrating when what you think should do the trick does not.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
