Constant hunger, eating 24 fillets of salmon a day for two years.

28M 5'8" 270lbs No current drug use/smoking No current medications

So everyday since April 2019 I've been dealing with this constant nagging hunger/gnawing sensation that would feel like my body is eating itself. The only thing that alleviates it is eating ALOT of protein, mostly salmon. I got an endoscope and CT scan that both came back clean. Endocrinologists have ruled out mercury poisoning, thyroid issues, vitamin d deficiency and ulcers.

This all started after I stopped smoking excessive amounts of weed April 2019. I know for a fact THC increases ghrelin and I'm almost positive ghrelin is somehow causing this issue. I think I somehow caused my ghrelin levels to spike up. 6 months after this started my insulin was high and taking metformin immediately helped with the gnawing but stopped doing anything after a week. My insulin went back to normal.

I still need salmon to feel full and can't sleep until I eat my usual 24 fillets (3 fillets x 8 meals). It's been going on for two years. I've been perfectly healthy my whole and have always been around 140-150 lbs until this. Is there any explanation for this? I seriously suspect ghrelin is the culprit. Are there any more tests you guys would recommend that I have done? Currently I'm considering bariatric embolization, a leptin shot such as Mylept or possibly gastric banding or something reversible. Any help on the matter would be much appreciated.

Fillet mignon was on sale at ALDI. Propane went out halfway through (I have a tabletop) but they still turned out decent. My kids are officially converted to med/med rare steak eaters. Happy Mother’s Day to me!

Back with more AF goodness! I hesitate to call this a "recipe" because it was SO SIMPLE, but I will NEVER cook salmon in the oven again! Fresh salmon fillet: drizzle with EVOO, sprinkle with garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper to taste; AF @ 400Β° for 12 mins (9 is good if you want it less crispy.) reddit.com/gallery/n7yb83

PERFECT 55c. The bride sent a text saying there's a steak in the fridge and she would be out. Got home to find a 1kg Eye Fillet. Bit big for one but whose to argue. Just finished and cleaned up and discovered a single rump steak in the fridge. I think I may be in trouble

A lot of salmon fillets... aside from eating them as is what else can I make?

Preferably things that can be frozen too and reheated later as I do like to do meal prep so I’m not cooking 3 times a day. :3

Also if anyone has any kid friendly meals with salmon? My boys love fish but they’re also quite particular.

TIA.
