Fasting in the consumer economy, 2

Here is a brilliant quote from one of the people Baab interviewed as she prepared to write her book:

"Mark, a consultant in his sixties, reflects, 'What I've learned from fasting is that it is often difficult to know that for which we are hungry when we are satiated all the time. We actually need to experience physical hunger in order to trace what our real spiritual and emotional hunger is.'" (p. 47)

What do you think? Is he right?
