Kindly inform me if there is a Hadith which mentions “A human being fills no vessel worse than his stomach”

Yes. Imams Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Miqdam ibn Ma’di Karib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) as part of a longer narration which discusses the recommended amount of food one should eat.
