st: repeated (sic) longitudinal analysis

Dear all,
I am analysing the following study :
- healthy subjects are eating a meal ad libitum and the quantity of food (number of forks for example) is recorded every minute : energy, glucids, lipids and proteins
- the meal is repeated 3 times in 2-4 weeks : once fasted (meal 0) and twice not fasted (meals 1 & 2).
Usually I use xtgee to do longitudinal analyses when subjects are different, something like :
xtset id_subject minute
xi: xtgee kcal i.meal, family(gaussian) link(identity) corr(exchangeable)

But this time the same subject eats the three meals and I want to know if the three curves are different in their shape (besides the AUC, slopes...).
Do you have any idea how to include in the GEE model the fact that it is the same subject who is re-recorded to take into account this variability ?
It sounds to me like clusters but I didn't find how to put it in the GEE model. I had also a look at gllamm but I am not familiar with it.
Thanks for your help. Best regards,
