Theoretically, if you had a portion of this super-food, which was the size of a piece of gum, yet had enough nutrients packed into it to sustain you for a full day. Similar to Willy Wonka's gum. Would you still feel hunger? I have a feeling that even with the perfect energy and nutrients in a tiny portion, still lacks the volume required to fill your stomach. Still an good point/idea with amazing potential.

I think the stomach naturally will shrink over time and change "it's expectations". At first you would feel the hunger but eventually, you'd establish a "new normal". This is just a guess based on some fasting I've done.

I'm pretty sure there's a product out there that's like a granola bar, but when you eat it, it expands inside your stomach to make you feel full.
