There seems to be this approach in America, like some weird self-tape that insists that hunger must be completely sated.

I blame restaurants, and even more so the ridiculously dangerous "all-you-can-eat buffet" concept. I try to remind the kiddos that the goal of eating isn't to be full, but to be not hungry anymore. Seconding an earlier poster's point about the lag between when the food gets swallowed and when your brain recognizes it in the "am I still hungry?" ledger, I put a grammatically incorrect* stickynote on the edge my monitor at work that says "EAT SLOW" (I do about 50% of my eating at my desk).
