Are You A Full On All In Type of Dieter?

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

Then Raw Food Boot Camp is for You!

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 3 days a week

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

You must weigh in with us every Monday and Thursday

You must ask the group or Carlene for help before you break your plan

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 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. While Carlene’s passion is helping obese women get thin, fit and healthy with her Rawk Starz diet.

She knows that 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. Is it hard? Yes. Does it take discipline and perseverance? Yes.

It takes 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.

Not to worry though, because 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.

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. We have a slow, transition to maintenance program you design with Carlene’s help.

How We Work

Carlene believes in the power of working with peers.

Each new start must have at least 3 members for it to happen. The first two weeks is orientation. Yes, the audios are canned, but Carlene still works with you and reads everything you write. After two weeks you are moved into the regular on-going group of RFBC Campers.

After orientation, every Monday thru Friday, Carlene offers a new fresh audio for the RFBC team and a discussion thread to go with the audio. All discussions and audios are geared toward the RFBC team as a whole. We work together to figure out how to break the habits that have kept us heavy.

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 an group based messaging system to talk to each other. They are available on both computer and smart devices.

We track and graph weigh ins every Monday and Thursday.

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 RFBC 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 RFBC 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.

For the obese, this is 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 Rawk Starz diet is a simple grab and go diet, 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. 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 of RFBC 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

At RFBC we offer a maintenance program. 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 RFBC 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.

Meet Some of Our Divas Who Still Stop By Camp Now and Again

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 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.

Why Does Carlene Offer 2 Opposite Programs?

With over 14 years of working with obese women, Carlene has seen why most can’t win the battle on obesity. It is due to an inability to continually prioritize their health, themselves. Self-esteem, happiness, and the ability to do what you truly need in life matters. These two opposite programs are offered because while fast weight loss is what most want and some need, everyone needs to learn to make weight just one aspect of who we are, one part of our lives and not the one we obsess over.

Thin Brain Training is for those who want to be thin, but always sabotage or give up long before achieving their goal because they can’t sustain long term dieting for whatever reason. At TBT we work on ourselves, upping our happiness, self-esteem, and desire to change for life. We counter all negatives with positives and work on inner changes making weight loss a mor natural process than strict dieting. Many TBT members are past RFBC members who loved RFBC but couldn’t do it long term.

Raw Food Boot Camp is a strict boot camp style program for those who are all or nothing types and need fast weight loss to succeed. This is a blinders on, run to goal, type of program. No nonsense, no excuses, just go and get it done. It takes a true all in personality to do this and take it to goal. But the results are amazing. 100 lbs in 7 months is very doable as you can see by our before and afters. But once that weight is gone, you are going to need to get in some thin brain training to keep it off for good.

Both programs are done on-line. Membership is not transferable between programs.


Carlene isn't around right now, but will get back with you as soon as possible.
