In brief: Only you know

Since hunger is a subjective symptom with no outward signs or indications, only you will know if your'e really hungry.
Remember, hunger is just your body telling you you're burning up more calories than you're taking in. It's to prevent you from losing weight - a survival instinct - but it's only a symptom. No one is ever harmed or dies from hunger.
