The wrong trigger point for feeling hungry vs. food intake could well be one of the reasons why the big belly was built up in the first place, and it's definitely one of the things that become skewed by long term overeating so it becomes a rally bad indicator for when and how much to eat.
Making your body consume fat rather than muscle is done by exercising while dieting, that part is not mental. Actually following a diet and actually getting the exercise is very definitely mental work though and that can be a really hard part of losing weight.
