I know what you're talking about.
Calorie deficits, esp long term, are perhaps more challenging than any brutal leg workout you could do.
Your body is sensing it's being starved and isn't going to let you ignore it!
Your leptin levels are no doubt real low too.
Whats your fat intake like? Low carbs AND low fats just leave protein. Not good!
I think we can overdo the dieting sometimes believing more is better.
If you really feel like you need carbs you most likely do! Listen to your body. It's unlikely to be just you being greedy! A good appetite suppressant can help too. I'm using a great one and got about 2 years supply in stock
but it's now banned so no point even mentioning it.
Also your hormones get fcuked up when cals go too low which aint good at all for preserving muscle and therefore basal metabolic rate.
