Everytime I get to very low bodyfat I start to feel like I can eat a horse and start eating like Im in an eating contest.
CopingGymcel said:It's probably because you're starving yourself. You need to learn to eat normally. A diet should be how you usually eat, but in a small calorie deficit. If your usual diet is shit, then you need to change that before you decide to try and lose weight.
If you do it right, the amount of calories you need to eat to lose weight at a low body fat shouldn't be that much lower than at the start of your diet.

Look into "reverse dieting" and allow your self to slowly work back up to your original (or intended) calories/macros. Heck, even throw in some HIIT cardio to up your metabolism.
You could use Avatar Nutrition (10 bucks a month) to monitor your body composition, if you want and they also have a option to help you with reverse dieting.
If you want to maintain contest condition or leanness then that's almost impossible because your hormones will get fucked.

I’d rather have a lean face at the cost of being skinny. Even though ive got subhuman features, it looks way worse when I gain even a little bit of weight.
