Another example is Tenacity. Tenacity is being true to yourself. You can feel it. Using these natural tools to stop binging and bring you to a place of satisfaction, is explained in detail in Am I Really Hungry, 6th Sense Diet:Intuitive Eating.

Doing research for this book, I questioned people struggling with the ups and downs of losing weight and talked to people who don't diet but were generally slim, to learn why people eat. The answers were surprising. Instead of learning about what to eat or how to keep weight off, I learned that eating is intensely personal.
One question I asked was: When you look at a menu how do you choose what to order?

Even though I related emotionally with the idea of going for taste, there was a bad feeling in my gut making me edgy. Finally, I had an "aha" moment while talking to my girlfriend about a guy she was seeing. She said that he had charisma, money and a sense of humor, but he turned out to be a lying, cheating cad. She looked me right in the eye and said “You can’t judge a book by the cover.” Zing!
I finally ‘heard’ my intuition. The taste of food is like the cover of a book. You can't judge a book by the cover and taste often misleads about the goodness of food. As this thought steamrolled through my mind, I realized the relationship with food is like another personal relationship in my life - dating....

Intuitive eating sounds glamorous but anybody can do it.
Find the satisfaction you've been missing.
