In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy dive into one of the main reasons why people say they have "tried" fasting, dabbled with it, or had a brief experience with it and the results were just okay. Hunger is a turn-off for most people. It is something that can stop a fast in its tracks. The cephalic phase of digestion is a physiological response that is governed by the nervous system.
