what the hell is wrong with me?
ok I figured atleast one person here has to have had this before so I thought I would ask before seeing a doctor
I dont know if its some very wrong or what but here it is and here are my stats
20 years old
I recently changed my workouts so that I am doing higher reps with lower weights
my main goal is to start cutting down on some fat(need to drop like 7lbs of fat to look pretty good)
I do cardio on the days off from lifting
I supplement before and after cardio with L-glutamine
the days I do weights I drink a shake after with creatine and glutamine added
after both workouts they are also followed with a multivitamin and plenty of water
the cardio is done in the morning on an empty stomach and I wait 1 hour after to eat something.
ok here is the problem
my body throughout the entire day is starving is this normal??
I will eat lots of protein for lunch (40-50grams per meal sometimes 100 grams if its like a half a pound or more of chicken)
I will eat something basically every 1 1/2 hours ever since this workout
I am not forcing myself to eat, however when this hunger strikes it feels like I hadnt eaten for days, regardless if I just ate an hour or so ago
regardless of all this and my lightweight(compared to most of you guys) I can easily consume about 5000 calories a day. I dont really put on any extra weight maybe 1/2lb give or take, but it feels like everytime I sit to eat its like my body really was missing food and I cant understand why
I really want to try and cut down on my fat on my own body but it seems this is hindering my progress
should I cut some of these meals during the day out or what?

I've felt the same way before...I'll not even be the slightest bit hungry, but after I eat, i feel like i'm STARVING..but it goes away later. Bump for this

you're still a growing boy, imo you're wasting your peak growing period trying to cut down, you'll grow more muscle naturally now and in the next couple years than you will ever again, you should take advantage of this by eating lots of lean calories and lifting heavy, you could probably eat 4000 cals a day, do little to no cardio and still not put on any fat and grow like mad, think about it

thanks for the ideas guys
I might be wrong but I was always under the impression that guys stopped growing at 18 no?

Many times thirst is confused for hunger. Try drinking more water during the day...
Also, as a side bar - remember, when you engage in serious physical activity(s) your body requires additional nutritional support. Even the little processes at the cellular level that contribute to your body healing itself require calories to support their energy demands. Without fuel - your body can not function the way it is intended. Same goes for proper hydration - if your body needs more fluids - like I already mentioned, people can easily confuse thirst for hunger...
