There's a question on satiety regarding this matter, but my question is somewhat different.
After I bought my crockpot, I've been having huge postworkout meals with about a pound of meat/chicken and 3 pounds of potato/sweetpotato, and I dump this into a crockpot with a some crushed tomatoes, broth and water mixed with some onions, carrots and celery (for taste). There's quite a large amount of (delicious) sauce, with of course fills me up nicely and DOES bring satiety.
On off days I make a 5-quart (almost full) saucepan of fish soup, but it has only about 750-850 calories depending on what veggies i use, and finish it on one sitting. Again, brings great satiety and as a last meal of the day I do not feel hungry at all going to bed (something i hate).
Now obviously satiety is not the issue. BUt are there any other? Sometimes I feel stuffed for 15-20 minutes, sometimes I can destroy the whole crockpot/saucepan with ease, especially after working out or otherwise super hungry. Are there any issues, hormonal or relating to digestion? There was something about higher insulin spike in the other question I posted above, any thoughts? Also, using sauces and stews helps a lot if I want to tweak daily carb amounts etc.
edit: Some typos. I also wanted to clear that I do not have any digestive issues with these meals (other thatn not wanting to get up from the sofa for about 15-20 minutes after :).
