At the moment, I am just about at the capacity of members I like to work with. There are no set start dates right now, but for those who are truly committed to beating obesity and willing to change, convince me in the application and I will consider letting you join RFBC on an upcoming Monday morning. I want women who are truly ready and willing to put in the work and effort required to beat obesity and move on from the obsession of dieting, body image, and weight loss. It’s time to live obese-free, forever. But that takes a big shift in how you relate to food and movement and how willing you are to change old ingrained habits into new healthy ones. If you’re not open to working hard for change, then RFBC isn’t the right program for you.

We meet in an online forum daily. There are new audios every Monday thru Friday based on the needs of the women at camp. This is not a physical boot camp, it’s all done online and at whatever timezone you are in. We have women from all over the world.

What Does It Take To Lose Weight Fast?

It takes courage, determination, and sheer will to stay motivated on this very strict diet program. So many women come to camp with a try attitude. That doesn’t work. I have a saying: I Can, I Can, I Will! There is no maybe, no fitting the program in. To be successful, you have to Just Do It! like Nike says.

This is boot camp and not summer camp.

To succeed here and maintain your membership, you must treat the program like a part-time job. You must plan your food and schedule your exercise. You must stay on plan and exercise even when you don’t feel like doing it. Even when life and people get in the way. And you must participate daily.

Beating Obesity isn’t just about Fast Weight Loss

While fast weight loss is important to the obese to break free of what we call The Fat Suit, there is so much more to beating obesity. We are obese because of our habits and relationship to food. Now you may cry foul here because you believe you don’t overeat and you do exercise, and that may be very true.  But then why are you still having weight issues?

To beat obesity you must accept your body for how it works. Your metabolism is yours and while getting fit will help while you are fit, the truth for all of us is we must eat and exercise for the body we have not the body other people have or we wish we had. To this day, 17 years after losing 136 lbs in 9 months on this exact diet and exercise program, I still gain weight easily. I have to manage my food. There is no pizza or chips in my life. I don’t celebrate with food or feed my emotions with it and I most definitely don’t eat to make others happy.

To maintain my weight, I still live on a low-fat, low-sodium, and low-sugar diet although not all raw. I do a whole foods diet. I still have an eating curfew of 7:30 PM every night. I still walk every day. And yes, there are times I really would love to have that pizza and chips or some other high-fat, high-sodium food, but the truth is I hated being obese and refuse to go back there.

My metabolism didn’t change. I changed.

How badly do I want to never be obese again? More than I want pizza or chips or other high fat and high sodium or high sugar foods.

If you want to beat obesity, you have to change too.

That is what defines who makes it at Raw Food Boot Camp and who doesn’t. Or rather who beats obesity and who just gains all the weight back.

I am looking at retiring

I was set to retire on October 1st 2022, but then Jenna, a woman who has been in and out of camp over the years hit 100 lbs gone and goal.

So, I rethought my retirement date.

It’s not that she lost the 100 lbs and hit goal, it is about how much she has changed. It’s about the realization she made that what she eats defines how she feels not just healthwise but overall in how she copes with life, her self-esteem, and her ability to care for others. She no longer eats over emotions or because something smells or sounds good. She eats to live obesity free and enjoy the benefits good health brings. Not just physical health but emotional health as well. She won. And now I am wanting to help others to win, just like her.



Retirement date reset again!

Now that  Janel is back and has made the mind changes necessary to take this all the way my retirement has been put off again.  She is currently at 60 lbs gone in 4.5 months (Dec 11, 2022). It was with a promise between us that I would stay open for at least six months more months so she could reach goal and work with us to maintain her weight. There are currently other women, not quite at 60 lbs gone but who are actively and successfully working on change, that I am honored to continue with them.

Who I’m looking for to finish my career with

I am looking for with 50 to 120 lbs to lose who are willing to give either our Rawk Starz Diva diet or our Whole Foods Diva diet their all and who are capable of walking. You will have a month to get to the two hours a day in our RFBC heart rate zone. It’s a 3-month program. Ample time to lose 40+ lbs. I lost 104 in 6 months. I want women who are as dedicated to beating obesity as Jenna, Janel and the current ladies of RFBC are and  ho are ready to give me their all. I’m looking for women who are willing to persevere through the good and the tough. Who will get up after a stumble and push through and not just disappear.  Oh, how I hate the disappearing.

While I am a drill sergeant in what I expect from you, I also know how difficult this path is. Change is the hardest. And the desire to not face the changes needed and to just ignore them until after the weight is lost is why so many gain the weight back. For me to work with you, you must be willing to change. You must be willing to admit you need to change and be willing to practice that change while working with me at camp.

Here’s how hard the first month will be

The first week, if you’re excited can almost be euphoric. For others it can be a digestive upset. Fruit is the key to our success and if you aren’t used to it, it can cause gas, the runs for some while constipation for others.  Some get headaches from sugar and sodium withdrawal. It’s a change for your body. For those heavy on caffeine, caffeine withdrawal can be tough. The headaches are bad. I urge you to wean off caffeine your first month rather than giving it up cold turkey. The sodium and sugar withdrawal headaches are bad enough.

Your second week, or even your fifth day on the program, if doing the Rawk Starz diva diet, you will hit detox. For most, it’s just extreme fatigue but for some, it can mean rashes and/or flu-like symptoms. I am in awe of detox. The fact that as soon as we go healthy our body jumps in and starts purging toxins is pretty amazing.

Detox lasts about 4 days. Then you start to feel stable and good. Not euphoric like raw foodists claim. Just a nice sense of good.

Around the 3rd or 4th week many are ready to quit. Diet fatigue happens (it also happens around 3 or 4 months in). You will want to throw the next piece of fruit you see at me. You will try and convince yourself this isn’t the right diet for you. I will do my best to convince you otherwise. The thing is, this is expected. It’s common. It’s because we are not used to dieting long term and our fat brain rebels.

Trust me, throughout this program you will test the waters. You will convince yourself just one bite won’t matter. You will try and justify off-plan foods and convince yourself you’re different and can get away with more. I’ve been doing RFBC for 17 years and I’ve heard it all. I don’t yell or threaten you, I don’t even judge you. Beating obesity is tough, but I will always ask you to look back and see where the choice to break plan began and ask you to come up with a way to override that thinking for next time. We are all about change and the truth is change takes practice. I do not expect perfection, just that each day you get up and give us your best.

What I’m looking for in new clients

You must need to lose 50 to 120 lbs.

You must hate being obese more than you want to eat whatever and whenever you want.

You must hate being obese so much that you are willing to treat being in this program as a part-time job and not be a part-time participant.

You must be so tired of obesity that you will work hard daily to rewire your thinking from a fat brain to a thin brain. Accept that many permanent changes have to be made and that there is no such thing as being cured of obesity. It takes a lifetime of food management. There is no going back to old ways. You must be willing to accept that.

Can you commit to a tough program to get the fast results you want?

Then Raw Food Boot Camp or Whole Food Boot Camp is for You!
or is it? Listen to Carlene in the below audio before deciding


We are an online-only group for women. It doesn’t matter what time-zone you live in, nothing is scheduled. You participate daily in your time-zone. We have women from all over North America and Canada, women from Europe and Down Under. If you can read and write English you are welcome. But only if you will treat RFBC like a part-time job.

You must participate in our daily discussions a minimum of 5 days a week

You must fill out an accountability form daily that goes directly to Carlene

You must weigh in with us every Monday, Wednesday and Friday

You must ask the group or Carlene for help when you struggle

You must want to get rid of your fat suit more than you want to feed your appetite

You must be willing to break the food issues and behaviors that have kept you heavy

To stay in the program you must lose a minimum of 6 lbs a month.  Most, if they do the plan as prescribed can get 10-15 lbs a month and maintain their health. 

You must follow our Rawk Starz or Whole Food diet with no deviations

No complacency, excuses, rationalizations allowed. This is Boot Camp!

Healthy Fast Weight Loss Coach CarleneRaw Food Boot Camp started with only the raw food diet Carlene used to lose her 136 lbs in 9 months. Carlene’s passion is helping obese women get thin, fit and healthy with her Rawk Starz diet.

She needed this type of fast weight loss for her to succeed and lose her weight. Her need and want to no longer be obese was more important to her than any favorite food.

She took the rawfoodist diet and transformed it to work for her and after such great success brought it to other obese women.

The Whole Food diet is one designed for success as well. It’s not like other diets, this one is trimmed down for fast weight loss.

Are they hard programs? Yes. Do they take discipline and perseverance? Yes.

They take big time commitment. To succeed here you must be willing to fight yourself when it comes to giving into impulses, cravings and emotional eating.

This is a type of program where you put blinders on and run for goal.

Rawk Starz Diet

Not to worry though, because with the Rawk Starz diet, we only eat low glycemic load fruits and veggies, it does not spike our blood sugar. We only have the sodium that naturally comes in our food so we are free from the bloat sodium brings and immediately after just one week feel more limber.

We eat seeds, either hemp, chia or raw pumpkin seeds for our protein, omegas and even iron. These seeds are perfect proteins, just like an egg.

Greens balance out our diet bringing more protein and iron.

As with all vegan diets you will need to supplement vitamins B12 and D.

Whole Foods Diet

With the whole food diet, we also eat low glycemic fruits, but beans, quiona, cooked veggies and lean proteins are allowed as well. It’s still strict, but doable for those who can’t do our Rawk Starz diet but want the strict accountability Carlene offers and need fast healthy weight loss to stay on a diet.

While we are known for healthy fast weight loss for the obese

And no, just because you lose the weight with raw food, you don’t have to live on raw food for life. We have a transition to maintenance program you design with Carlene’s help. 
  • First Month Avg Loss on Rawk Starz diet: 20-30 lbs. It depends on how much excess water weight you carry.

  • First Month Avg Loss on Whole Foods Diet: 15-25 lbs. It depends on how much excess water weight you carry.

  • Expect 8-15 lbs per Month After Water Weight Loss with the Rawk Starz program.

  • Expect 6-12 lbs per Month After Water Weight Loss with the Whole Foods program.

  • You must do the Rawk Starz or Whole Food diet and walking with  no deviations

  • Minimum 2 Hours of Walking a Daily. You have your first month to get to the 2 hours. This is how all our ladies lost their weight. If you have physical or time restriction issues, email Carlene first for available options.

  • Juicing is not allowed

How We Work

Carlene believes in the power of working with peers.

Every Monday thru Friday, Carlene offers a new, fresh audio and a discussion thread to go with the audio. All discussions and audios are geared toward the team as a whole. We work together to figure out how to break the habits that have kept us heavy. There isn’t an audio on Saturdays or Sundays, but we still have our group discussion.

We have women from all over the world at Raw Food Boot Camp, therefore, there is no set time for anything. Participate online in your time.

We use a forum and a group-based messaging system to talk to each other. They are available on both computers and smart devices.

We track and graph weigh ins every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.


We Offer so much More than just Healthy Fast Weight Loss

Cjane's healthy fast weight loss with raw food dietThere are daily audios Monday through Friday. Each is recorded the night before. They are based on the struggles going on for the women at camp.

Every day there is a daily discussion thread based on those audios where you discuss with your peers your own struggles and how to best get past them.

Every day you fill out an accountability form to let Carlene know if you were on plan or not. There is a comment feature on the form. This is where you communicate to Carlene what's going on and what you need private help with.

Carlene is passionate about helping you beat obesity, but the truth is she can't do it for you. You have to put in the effort. You have to fight through the struggles and the cravings. Carlene and the other members of both RFBC and WFBC are there to guide and support you, but in the end, it is you who has to do the hard work.

Carlene is not your fairy godmother. She can't bop you on the head and make you thin. She can, however, give you the tools, knowledge and drive to make your own miracle come true.

Remember, reality can be a tough mistress. Without her, we can never change. Carlene does not coddle, she tells you the truth. Obesity is a serious issue and at Coach Carlene's Fast Weight Loss Boot Camp we all believe it is not only our right but our responsibility to beat it.


If you decide to join us, be ready from day one to be all in.

Ready, Set, Go and then Do!

Healthy Fast Weight loss

Since 2005, we have used Carlene’s Rawk Starz diet and walking for fast weight loss. This is a low fat, low sodium, low sugar raw food diet with 2 hours a day of walking. It is great for all or nothing types.

We have added the Whole Food diet to accommodate women serious about their health and weight who can’t do our Rawk Starz diet without some cooked food and/or lean animal protein.

For the obese, these are the perfect diet if you are at all like Carlene. She never had the patience for slow weight loss and gave up on those diets fast. Our diets are simple, no fuss, no mess. It’s a head down, just get it done type of program.

To succeed at fast weight loss requires focus and discipline. And most importantly, to take it all the way to goal, it requires you to throw out all ideas of perfection. The idea of perfection is the top reason women give up on healthy fast weight loss diets.

Exercise for Fast Weight Loss

Foteens Raw Food Diet Goal Journey with Before and AftersExercise is required at RFBC and WFBC. Daily exercise. In our experience, anaerobic exercise such as spinning doesn’t burn fat for weight loss. Yoga doesn’t burn fat, neither does Pilates. Walking is our exercise of choice. Hiking, snowshoeing, swimming and treadmill on incline give the best results. It seems to be time and heart rate that makes the difference. Effort over speed. If you want any type of satisfying weight loss you need to commit to a minimum of 1 hour a day, every day to get in your exercise.



Maintenance is as important an aspect as weight loss. Losing weight and getting healthy does not cure obesity. Most of us can never go back to old ways of eating although that is the fantasy most bring with them to RFBC.

We are not a quick fix program. Sure fast weight loss is great. Getting healthy and finding well-being is awesome, but if you don’t come up with a good maintenance plan all your efforts will quickly disappear.

When you reach goal, expect to give a good 3 months to learn how to maintain it. Few want to do that at first, but then they always come back to lose the 20-30 lbs they regain soon after leaving.

While we all love fast weight loss, it happens so fast and we’re so focused that we don’t have time to learn how to deal with our bad food habits. They all rush back as soon as we let our guard down.

Transitioning to Maintenance is a Process and is not Done Over Night

As you near goal, Carlene will work with you preparing for the transition to maintenance. She will help you introduce healthy foods back into your diet that you have abstained from for weight loss. But slowly. Each food has to be checked to see if it stimulates cravings. The rule is if it whispers your name from the fridge or cabinet you’re not ready for it. We also need to see how your body handles it. While some can go back to limited complex carbs, many can’t.

Plan on a solid 3 months of maintenance

It takes more patience and perseverance to truly learn how to maintain your weight than it does to lose it. So, if you join us count on being with us past goal so you can cement your new weight and learn to maintain a diet aka lifestyle that works for you.

Who We Are

Raw Food Boot Camp® was started on December 28, 2005, after those following Carlene’s 136 lbs gone in 9 months journey talked her into starting an online support program so they could accomplish what she did: fast weight loss with a raw food diet. And not just quick weight loss but pain management and improved health, and best of all a better sense of well-being. Carlene believes so strongly in this raw food diet that for fourteen years she has used it to help other obese women achieve what they believed impossible.

We aren't just about fast weight loss. We are also about the changes needed to keep the weight off for life

As Frec's mom said that first year RFBC opened:

Losing weight is easy. It's keeping it off that's hard.

Some of our members were kind enough to show their faces and let me put together a Member Journey Page for them. Click on the photos below to go to their Journey page. All of their before and afters are listed. There is an In Her Own Words section, where they answer five questions I put to them.

These women have lost over 60 lbs and hit goal using our Rawk Starz diet and walking 2 hours a day. We offer other programs as well. Actually, Menza and Erica are frequent visitors at camp. Onecia is there too, but she was a no-photo member. Onecia lost her weight and has maintained it for years on a whole food diet.

We are the Obese Helping the Obese

We are a small intimate group of obese women who have tired of our obesity and are using a raw food diet and walking as a means to lose weight fast then learn to maintain that weight with a whole foods diet.

While fast weight loss is important to most who join, in reality, it is a means to get to where we really want to go…a life without food obsessions, without constantly thinking about our weight. A life free of obesity and all it brings. To get there takes work.

Every day at RFBC, we work on changing our relationship to food. We work on cutting the cord between emotions and food. We work on overcoming the obstacles that we or others have placed in our way from having the happy, healthy life we deserve. There is never any psychoanalyzing. We never judge. This is true peer to peer work that works!

This is boot camp. It’s not a place to try. It’s a place where to stay you must work hard and be on plan. If you aren’t an all in type of person you will not like this program.

Please know that before joining.

If you aren’t ready to tackle your food habits and truly beat the obesity mindset, then we aren’t for you.

Carlene believes it is our right and our responsibility to be healthy. With so many years, decades even of poor food choices and deteriorating health we owe it to ourselves to make the hard choices, to choose vitality and quality of life over anything a few bites of flavor can offer. Not that she doesn’t get the pleasure food brings, it’s just that for most of us who are obese, that second of flavor is not worth the days, months, years of hardship and pain obesity brings.

When you join Raw Food Boot Camp and hire Carlene as your weight loss coach, be ready and willing to fight for what you want, to ask for support when you need it, and to believe in your right to live happy without the burden of obesity.

Carlene and the other members of RFBC and WFBC will be there with you every step of the way. Holding your hand, pulling you forward and lifting you out of any pitfalls along the way. But you have to be willing to let us help and open to the changes you need to make to not just lose the weight but keep it off for good.

Honesty with yourself. Courage to seek support. Patience with your body. And the determination to succeed are the true paths to success.
