It’s your highest choice to watch television food commercials only while you’re eating.
Otherwise, your gut organs are primed for digestion on an empty stomach.
Food advertising gets you coming or going …
1) If you obey the call of your belly, you run to the kitchen for a food fix.
2) If you ignore the call of your belly, you weaken your gut organs and enteric nervous system.
You don’t have to be a neurogastroenterologist to figure this stuff out.

“Pawlow’s [Pavlov’s] demonstration that savoury food, in the mouth, or even when simply shown to an animal without being eaten at all, will excite the secretion of all the digestive juices explains why the Irish peasantry in time of famine when they were compelled to live on potatoes alone hung up a red herring and pointed their potato at it so as to obtain the suggestion of savoury food. This is probably also the reason why cheese savouries and fruit are eaten at the end of a large dinner which by its amount might overtax the digestive powers of the individual if the digestive secretions did not receive an additional stimulus.”
