Some guests make excuses and don’t see any real progress. Others tend to buckle down and give it their all. But what exactly do they mean when they talk about the diet “shocking their system?” This is a question that fans recently debated online.

“I hear so many patients on the show say they’re worried to go all-in with the diet because it might ‘shock their system,'” one Redditor asked. “What does this even mean? What do they think is going to happen, exactly? And where do so many people get this idea from?”

Many other Redditors chimed in, but most seemed to have similar thoughts on the issue.

“Any major change like that will bring about a level of discomfort,” added another user. “Anybody who has quit any addictive substance including sugar knows that you really do go through withdrawal symptoms and it is painful and extremely unpleasant. I suspect that maybe what some of them are referring to, because if you wean off rather than quit cold turkey, the shock is less.”

Many of the patients on My 600-Lb. Life are addicted to food. Just like any other addiction, it’s something they will have to get used to living without. It’s a difficult process, but many former guests go on to lead happier healthier lives.
