  2. Suupose I have been running, depleting oxygen content in my body. Even after stopping, I will breathe harder for a period, until the homeostatic balance of CO2 is restored.

    Hunger is also related to the hypothalamus. When it signals hunger, we attempt to eat. Once food is in the stomach, it takes about 20 minutes for it to get into the bloodstream to the hypothalamus to reduce feelings of hunger, restoring the homeostatic balance.

    In both of these, once homeostasis is restored, the drive is reduced. This is why it is better to wait 20 minutes before taking second helpings.

    I hope this helps a little more.
