My 600-Ib life was a television series that aired on the TLC network. The show initially started in 2012 and followed the journey of obese people who came into the show and practiced intense efforts to be in shape and live a normal healthy life.

The people who were 600 Ib’s were mostly seen in the show, and a special doctor plus an expert was there who helped them reach the goal of health and the body which they desire so as to live a normal, healthy life. Therefore each episode of the show documents the efforts of the person to get into the practice of a healthy life.
