It's not simplistic, I'm just pointing out that the apple analogy doesn't apply to anyone. I don't think anyone should judge their hunger based on the capacity to eat something they don't want to eat. Hunger is valid long before it gets to the point of resorting to eating something you don't like. Besides, if someone is eating for reasons other than hunger then hunger is not any kind of gauge at all. That's why I always secretly laughed when someone would try to give me a hunger or diet tip. If I'm not eating from hunger then why do I need to curb my hunger?
