I'm another one who lacks those cues. Just reading about them is making me very uncomfortable. I don't allow myself to get hungry or unenergized.

For me calorie counting is what keeps me on track. Having a set limit for the day, spread out over the course of the day. I AVOID getting hungry - at all costs - it's a feeling that I DESPISE and sets me up for failure - as I would make poor choices.

I rely on the built in portion control, set limits and accountability of calorie counting. Coupled with eating VERY nutritious, satiating, voluminous (& delicious) foods which I eat every 2 hours or so according to a pretty much set "schedule".
