I have mixed feelings about the "Are You Hungry?" article. It seems predicated on the notion that it is more 'natural' for humans to eat for optimal weight-management, which I don't think is the case. Evolutionarily, we should be prompting ourselves to overeat.

I hear you Kathryne. What I drew from that article was to have a more mindful approach toward hunger, rather than to just react to it. Or worst case, to react to it by eating whatever junk food happens to be within reach.
