I'm the same way. I just have to eat everything. It's like it's one of the seven deadly sins to leave food on my plate. And I pick at anything left over on the table or in the pots and pans and can eat another meal just picking at left-overs. One thing I've done is severely control my portion size, try to eat slower (I'm a bolter), cook smaller amounts (except watery vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower) and make sure the food tastes really good. I often don't feel real full after a meal but I know I've eaten sufficient. It's a hard habit to form, that is to walk away after you've eaten enough. And I try to put away the left-overs right away.

I feel your frustration.
