As I have concluded "I feel like" can have two different meanings. One is "to have a desire for", and the other is "feel as if" or simply just "feel". I just want to know how common(or correct) is the second meaning?

For examples: What is the difference between

  1. "I feel like I am not able to eat more"


  1. "I feel that I am not able to eat more"


  1. "I feel as if I am not able to eat more"?

Is the first sentence correct at all?


All are idiomatic, and mean the same thing, but you should ask "what is the difference between..." No. 1 is casual; no. 2 and 3 are more formal;
