My biggest thing to "tuning in" to that feeling have to be TOTALLY present when I eat. I could eat a whole plate of food and never taste any of it... I merely ate with the goal to be full. Now I eat mindfully... I taste every bite. When I find myself hurry-up-and-eat, eating... I have to really think hard, slow down... eat and experience it. Then my brain knows, I have eaten, my body knows I have eaten and my mouth knows I have eaten. I do think Kay_in_PA was right in stating above it is a chemical/hormonal thing.
1 pound to goal...
Don't worry I am setting new goal once I get this little pound off!
