Hi there, does your insane eq-ing come after you realize there no more body/low-end in the mix, or do eq like mad to later find the body/bass gone?

just one example (not necessarily true for your process of course), :
lots of people cut low-mids like mad to achieve clarity/hifi/modern sounds...but if you suck out all the low mids across an entire mix youll get thin, cold sonic-picture. Perhaps just notice your sonic intentions with eq as you go along, and dial it back a bit with each move? a little goes a long way in the grand scheme of things
