What should determine your hunger signals?
Here's how to make it so.
Good questions to I've asked myself to stop overeating:
Am I busy when the urge came on?
Do I feel as though I could eat a lot or a little?
What am I hungry for?
All of these small questions help me evaluate my desire for food, to see if it is genuine hunger or my mind playing a trick on me. Self-awareness is the most important thing.

When you're eating and not hungry, you're more likely to overeat. This is because your stomach is already stretched and ready for more food, plus, and perhaps more importantly, your MENTAL HUNGER comes with NO biological indicators to make you feel full. So if it's mental hunger you're feeding, you could eat forever. Yikes.
