That happened to me as well during my cut. I was hungry basically the whole time.
I think it's an effect of fasting and eating huge meals. I know the fasting is supposed to reduce hunger and cravings but every morning I'm dreaming of that first meal of the day.
What you can do is to use the one pre workout meal setup. That way you have to eat a lot more in a shorter time than when you train fasted, 100% cal intake in 8 hours versus 80% in 4-5, thus being able to really get full. Low fat ice cream, cereals and the like are ok right after workout as well.
Just so you know, this feeling will stay when you increase cal intake. Yesterday I ate 3000 cals in 3 hours PWO. It was torture the first couple of times but now it goes down pretty easy.
