    I'll stop posting I guess. I don't want to hijack this thread but anyway, for me 4-6000 calories is what I really need to be satiated. I don't always eat this much. But at these days I'm guaranteed to be hungry for multiple hours during the day. which can also feel pleasant to an extent. As long as I don't hve to go to bed hungry, that sucks. Today I had about 3500 calories, but I was very hungry from like 11 to to 4 or so

    if 4-6000 is working for you, that's awesome! wasn't trying to give you hints about whether or not to post, just wanted to be clear that i was talking to the OP.
