a(ku), a(kiru), a(kasu),

meaning: tire, satiate

飽食 == houshuku == (noun) gluttony, satiation, engorgement
飽く迄 == akumade == (adverb) to the end, to the last, stubbornly, persistently

Left radical is 'food/eat' (食). Right radical 'wrap/envelop' (包), used phonetically to express 'full'. To be 'full of food' is to be satiated. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Tired of wrapped food.'
