The thing is, pre-primal "eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full" didn't work at all. I was always hungry and never full. It works a lot better now that I've healed some of my problems. I eat to full and sometimes I don't eat at all for a while. Not that I turned into a bikini model, but nobody would call me fat now and I don't really have to worry that my appetite will betray me anymore.
