Will they eat more than they need?

Hi. My California king was loose for a while. We got him back after 6 months - everything is fine there. However, I wasn't sure what size mouse he would need so I got a fuzzy - he swallowed it, but regurgitated it. Went back to pinkies and he was fine. That has been about a month ago. He's now eating 2 pinkies twice a week and I can't be sure, but I swear he would eat more as he starts looking around as soon as he's done. Should I try to give him more? Is he just a glutton? Will they actually eat more than they need? Could it hurt him to give him too many? I still have about 70 mice in my freezer, so I'm not going to move him up a size again for a little while. Thanks.
