Due to the "obesity epidemic," there is a lot of focus on the causes of weight gain. We typically talk about strategies to cause weight loss, but what about strategies to minimize/maximize hunger?
Is there a way that hunger can be cured by eating a certain distribution of calories as a function of time? For example, if I have 2000 calories of food and I can eat it at any time, how should I spread out eating it over a day to maximize/minimize weight gain? What would be the physical differences for me if I ate a small snack every minute of the day versus eating all 2000 calories at once?
Likewise what about weight gain? Would it be easier to gain weight if someone waits until they are very hungry and overeats during that hunger window, or if they eat over a wider window?
