That doesn't sound stupid at all! I'm still not out of that head space, though the last experiment helped with it a lot.

So it will always guide me in the direction of optimal health. I presume that when I get hungry days it's cos my metabolism is starting to down regulate a bit, and I need a good food injection to boost it again.
I think you're experiencing resistance against listening to your inner signals cos you still afraid of being "fat". WHich I completely understand. I think once you trust your body things will get easier...
That's how it's feeling to me anyway
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
