>>since my own body's signals are absolutely not reliable indicators of when and how much to eat - how do I judge what my intake really needs to be?

Well, first, you have not said how much you weight and whether you have a weight problem or not.

Also, while it is very rare that someones satiety mechanism does not work, most of the problem is because of the type of food they are eating. The satiety mechanisms do not work very well with refined and processed foods. So, to really see how well they are working, one would have to switch to an exclusively unrefined unprocessed diet and give i some time. Even if they did not work 100%, it would still be extremely difficult to overeat as the amount and volume of food necessary to overweight on a low calorie dense diet, is huge. Most people could not do it, even when given unlimited access to food.

Lastly, even if there was a problem, and someone had a weight problem while living on exclusively, unrefined unprocessed low calorie dense foods, then the solution is still basically the same.. choose the sufficient amount of the same healthy low calorie dense foods but instead of doing it by your sensations of "satiety" do it by caloric value of servings.
