I'm liking the frenchhen!
Seems to me that we've (this "generalized we" = humans of the industrialized world?) forgotten how to listen to our bodies and eat what comes naturally to us.
  • We say we need to eat because it's 6:00 and that's dinner time.
  • We're full but we finish what's on our plates because that's what we were taught to do.
  • We're hungry but decide we shouldn't eat because the log says we've taken our quota of calories today.
Tracking is important -- you gotta know what you're doing wrong to change it and you gotta know what you're doing right to keep doing it.

Are you happy maintaining?
Is the increase in calories and fat taking you off track?
Are there other changes (more exercise) that might have you eating more?

Perhaps your brain signals aren't jumbled...
