Can you lose weight just by being religious?
Well I don’t know.
She’s been called “the pioneer of faith-based weight loss.”
You’ve probably seen Gwen Shamblin in the news before.
She’s been on all the major news networks, where she’s been interviewed by the best. It’s no secret that her practices & preachings have been questioned by some.
Her novel approach to weightloss is called the Weight Down Diet.
The idea is simple:
Stay within (God’s) boundaries of hunger and fullness and avoid overindulgence in life.
There are a variety of ways to begin the Weigh Down Diet — including online courses.
After inviting God into this wonderful eating occasion, I survey all the food choices available at the buffet. I carefully make my selections based on what flavors and foods I am craving at the time. I take very small amounts of the items I most want to try, and once I sit down, I begin to rate the items. That means that I taste a tiny bit of each item and decide which are my favorites. Then I take only the best, most sumptuous bites of each item, making sure I am filling up with only the tastiest parts, since I already know it won’t take much to fill me up! — Gwen Shamblin
Controversial In More Ways Than One
Gwen Shamblin and her Weigh Down Diet are not without their controversies, however…
Here is the flip side… The Remnant Church’s response to all the rumors.
More About The Weigh Down Diet
Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech — where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)… I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here — regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
