I count calories, as I find intuitive eating just doesn't work for me. I need the accountability of actually counting and therefore putting limits on the amount of food that I eat. I never knew when to stop eating, even though I was satisfied/full, even stuffed at times. I ALWAYS had room for more. I also pretty much adhere to a schedule, eating every 2 1/2 hours or so, this way I never get starving. I simply hate that feeling. Getting too hungry is a scary place for me. It can send me straight into overeating.
HAving found the right calorie level for me, and keeping to a certain level at each meal, keeps my hunger in check and tells me when to stop, I simply can't rely on intuition. My dopey intuition tells me to keep on eating and eating and eating.
