We are often required to eat well beyond satiety to meet our bodies' actual needs. Just because your stomach can only hold a gallon of food and will tell you it is full does NOT mean that your body does not require the extra food volume or nutrition. I have always, and will always, eat like a man, because I want to be strong like a man. Do not think you have to be dainty and follow food rules about when to stop eating, many such rules are totally unsuitable for people with a lot of muscles or who are very active and strong otherwise. I've lost 45/50-ish pounds on PB while gaining muscle and improving my health, and I never ever stopped myself from eating when I could still eat more. If you are healthy and feeling good digestively, never think you have to eat less or stop eating at some point because someone else told you to. That can make you weak, give you cravings, lead to loss of strength, and set up the environment for food disorders. Better to be an over-eater (by far! Look at the victorian study!) than an under-eater (think wasting vegans).
Yes, warrior diet (Or just one huge meal a day) works really well for most big eaters. In fact, light eaters struggle to stay fed on such a plan, while normal, hungry people like you and me tend to do great.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
