Unexpected side effect of dry fasting

Medical shows are all but ruined for me.

Edit: I thought the reason was obvious, but I guess not. At least 75% of the patients' conditions could be dramatically improved, if not cured entirely, with fasting. The autoimmune diagnoses are particularly cringeworthy.

At the very least, while the doctors are trying to figure out what the problem is, maybe stop feeding them bread and jello?

Obviously, I'm not expecting Hollywood to change anything. I just enjoyed the shows a lot more back when I didn't know any better.
