Diets We Support at Raw Food Boot Camp
At Raw Food Boot Camp, we offer a variety of different raw food and not raw food weight loss diets or programs. The speed you can lose your weight on these diets is dependent on how hard you are willing to work, how much you stick to the diet and walking and believe it or not, how much you embrace RFBC as your peers and team to fight through that all to familiar cycle of losing and gaining.
Below are the diets we work with. If you want to do Dr. Furhmens or Dr. McDougals, or even macrobiotics, we will support you in that as well. While we started as an all raw diet program, we have evolved to so much more and now support all healthy whole food diets. We are about beating obesity for life not just for a month or even a year. We work hard to fight through all the obstacles we have put in our way to get healthy.
I am proud of what we do, and am glad to invite you to join us and learn more about our RFBC Diets.

Attitude, Food and Exercise play equal roles in Weight Loss
Many who try other raw food weight loss diets without success, have come to Raw Food Boot Camp and had immediate success. Why? Because with low glycemic index fruits we seem to circumvent the slow metabolism often caused by insulin resistance which many of the obese suffer from. Read how Dr. Weil describes insulin resistance.
What do we mean by Low Fat, Low Sugar, Low Sodium?
Low Fat Means: No nuts or seeds (except hemp and maybe flax). No added oils. Limited avocado. No dairy.
Low Sugar Means: No added sweeteners including honey, agave, or stevia are allowed in our raw food weight loss diets. We only eat low glycemic index/load fruits so all the high sweet fruits that spike blood sugar are off the table. Also we do not eat high starch veggies.
Low Sodium Means: No added salt. It doesn’t matter what type of salt it is, we don’t use it. No soy sauces of any kind. No soups. Nothing that has sodium added.
There are more specific lists with each of the raw food weight loss diets offered. I just want you to know that we are serious when it comes to a diet that works for the obese. Fat, Salt, And Sugar. The top addictive nutrients out there as well as the most exploited. To break our food addictions, we need to lower our dependence on foods that trigger our desire to keep going after more. The old Lays potato chip ad stated it plainly. “I bet you can’t eat just one.” Well of course not. They are high fat, high salt, and high starch food. Who could resist?
Walking Requirements for all of our Raw Food Weight Loss Diets
I call this a pathway, because exercise plays a key role in how fast you lose weight.
2 hours of walking a day is what is needed for our fastest weight loss, but it is not a requirement. Walking is though.
To be part of the 50 and 100 lb challenges, you must be at the full 2 hours by the end of your first 4 weeks at Raw Food Boot Camp.
Minimum walking requirement is 45 minutes per day in your fat burn zone.
If you have bad knees or ankles and cannot walk, you must contact me prior to joining to discuss cardio alternatives.
Walking, hiking and snow shoeing are considered walking. Treadmill on incline, hiking mountains, and snow shoeing give the best results.
If you cannot walk 45 minutes at a time, yet, you can start slower. I started at six 10 minute walks a day until I felt the need to go for a straight hour. That was in a few short weeks. Miracle Jan started with multiple 2 or 3 minutes loops from her living room, through her kitchen and dining room and back to her chair while using her cane. In 1.5 months she walked a 5K!
While you can do pilates, yoga, spinning or whatever else you like for fun, they do not count as part of your exercise requirement at RFBC. Please understand this before joining our group or full membership areas. Only walking or walking alternatives agreed upon with Carlene prior to joining the group or full membership raw food weight loss diet programs.
