satiety

How do you decide when you are full? Beyond the objective measure of the actual quantity of food I know I have prepared, placed on my plate, and consumed, I have a general sense of contentment. Not too hungry. Not too full. Just right. Alice apparently has much the same mechanism.

But hers talks.

“Can I be done now? My tummy is saying ‘(switches to a squeaky voice) no more food!’ so that means I’m probably full.”
