That's a very big generalization. For a normal person with out diabetes and a weight problem, yes a little bit. But this could also be just a mental thing.
Also, if you are cutting, your body is in a fat burning state, I wouldn't consider that catabolic because your stomach is some what empty, you are a little hungry but you are burning fat and using that as energy.
