In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy discuss a classic study on overindulging after using restrictive eating. Trigger foods, fear of missing out, and black/white perfectionist thinking within a diet and weight loss journey often lead to unhealthy relationships with certain foods and undesirable outcomes in the future. They talk through how to prevent and correct this to find a better balance and easier success with fasting.
