The way I see it, if you get hungry there's really only one solution:

Eat,

Stephen guyenet has a series of articles from years ago about food palatability (reward) increasing obesity rates. I wonder if you guys are switching to tastier foods on maintenance.

yes, good point

there is no doubt I have been able to eat 'tastier' food on maintenance and that probably does explain why 'hunger' or appetite at least is higher. For example, I made a wild mushroom risotto with wine, good stock and parmigiano. The portion was 980 calories and it was delcious. i could have eaten another couple of plates though.

Back to deficit eating in a couple of days so I'll getting the biggest bang for calories that I can and probably will be less hungry. I do like my diet food though.

You get hungry because the body has registered that food is now finally available. So it drives you to stock up on as much energy as possible before the next shortage.

evolutionary mechanism.

i was listening to mike israetel talking the other day about just increasing the volume of your regular diet foods at first and only gradually adding in tastier things so you dont short circuit your hedonistic desires too early

made sense to me

Mike is just saying the same thing Martin Berkhan did already. When you go back to maintenance keep whole protein high and don't start subbing it out for a lot of shakes and adding in things you didn't eat while dieting.
