''full''

ok all you intuitive eaters... i need opinions and advice: ive been doing well this past year but my major set back is ''the full feeling.'' i guess years of binging and purging have screwed up my body/brain signals to when enough is enough. i know when i binge im uncomfortably full. and i know what it feels like to eat only to satisfaction. but sometimes i eat to satisfaction and am hungry a half hour later. this really rocks the binge boat for me. and its also inconvenient when i need to answer my bodys hunger at any given time to make dure i dont feel that im restricting. i also drink a lot of tea and broth to curb binges and keep satisfied but i think this confuses my bodys awareness and makes me feel full too maybe? how does everyone know the right amount of food to eat and when to stop eating?

OMG I have the exact same problem. I never know when im full, so either I eat ridiculously little out of fear that Ill feel uncomfortable or I'll eat too much, start feeling uncomfortable, and then its off to the races.

HALT

i know alcoholics use the acronym HALT: hungry, angry, lonely, tired. before you take a drink, ask yourself if your are any of those feelings first. then if you are, try to get to the root of that problem first before drinking. before i b/p i sometimes try the acronym STALT: stressed, thirsty, angry, lonely, tired. sooo many times ive eaten when it turns out i just needed some water. or b/ped when i just needed to walk it off or listen to calming music.
