From Ibn ’Abbaas who used to bring ’Umar ibn al-Khattaab’s food to him, “He used to eat eleven mouthfuls, and then the same amount the next day.”
Kitaab Islaahul-Maal, no. 334.

From Ibn ’Abbaas who said, “I used to bring [Umar] Ibn al-Khattaab’s food to him, so I would count what he ate and it would come to eleven mouthfuls, [after eating them] he would clean his hand and not eat anymore, but they were large morsels/mouthfuls. So I asked the person who would prepare his food, ‘Does the Ameerul-Mu’mineen eat anything else apart from this?’ He said, ‘No, he eats the same amount as this the next day, unless he wants to fast in which case he will have the suhoor meal.’”
Az-Zuhd, no. 241.
