 Uro think my hand is food,any ways to break the thought?

For some reason my 2yrs old male Mali uro thinks my hand is food when ever he sees it. Although he is not afraid of me
walking and doing stuff around but he is a bit shy on being hold or touch, however he is making a great progress though. I can pick him up on my hand for a few seconds and put him back and he won’t try to run. Temp is 120-130 on hot side and 80on cool. Feeding great on bok choy, endive, white millet, cactus and occasional blueberries or squash.
He will try to bite my fingers whenever I put it in cage as if he thinks they are food, anyways to break this thought from him?
I do believe he is not being aggressive cause none of the threaten action like tail Whip or body wiggling was shown, his body was not tense up as well.

Or could it be I’m not feeding him enough? He is pretty chubby and always have left overs every time after feeding though

Don’t let him see you put the food in the cage.
