Episode 147: Gwen Shamblin Lara and the Weigh Down Diet - Part 1
CW: This episode contains discussions of weight loss methods and diet culture as well as brief mentions of child abuse. Listener discretion is advised.
A self-described dumb blonde with a genuine heart for God, this registered dietician combined her love of the Lord with her professional training to craft her lightning rod hit weight loss program. But what started as a health venture morphed into a strict religious sect that concerned religious scholars and controlled its members’ everyday behaviors - sometimes with deadly consequences.
