I reply to some older ones.
Fang, my problem was real, physical hunger (at least it felt so and I never mix hunger with anything else and I even can tell apart my different hunger - and need-to-refuel - signs). Desires, that’s another thing but it isn’t a big concern for me if I go low enough with carbs (and eat enough but I do). But if I don’t even want anything, I have been eating since hours, with breaks (if I wait, I usually get satiated after a big meal), I just want satiation and peace and it doesn’t come… My stomach starts to reach its limits or if not (as I eat dense food), I feel I have a big rock there… But I am still VERY hungry, it’s annoying, I can’t focus on anything else… Once per year is too much for that. And it doesn’t make sense. I don’t eat little, I don’t keep myself from food I want, I don’t know everything about the nutritiousness of my food but I do my best and it works almost all the time except on those odd days. I have no problems with eating twice as much as usual now and then but on those days, not even that is enough and eating more would harm me.
When I feel I am starving, I simply eat a lot. 150-250g fat, 150+ g protein, my top satiating food items if it’s possible (I like to stop after 10-11 eggs and sometimes even earlier)… No, nothing helps in that state.
Fortunately, it’s usually a single day once in a blue moon. But now I had problems on my more normal days when I run out of meat, got enough from eggs (so only 5-6 for lunch) and no way I start to eat carbs… Until I gave up and ate very much gluten in one sitting (it satiates me very well, usually), it was bad. But on a single day, even that couldn’t help.
It’s just some weird thing in my life, rare enough.
Fat isn’t really satiating for me. Eating fat is the best way to get zillion calories without becoming very full. But it helps, just not nearly as much as protein and it rarely does any good without high protein.
All fat is like this, it seems.
But almost only fat doesn’t trigger hunger than any other small meal, at least. It’s surely about insulin.
