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.
