Move Past the Struggle of Weight Loss

Raw Food Boot Camp while it started with only the raw food diet Carlene used to lose her 136 lbs in 9 months, has evolved and is no longer about the food or exercise. It’s about the struggle of weight loss. It’s about the hard work required to not just lose the weight but to build good food behaviors and move past the cycle of weight loss/weight gain. It’s about beating obesity and demolishing your hardest weight loss obstacles.

If you’re looking for a quick fix, we are not the right place for you. 

Carlene supports all healthy diets that are around 1200 calories a day. She does not support juicing or fasting, she will not take on clients who use any types of drugs for weight loss.

Only healthy diets are supported. Low-calorie diets are not healthy. Living on one or two foods a day is not healthy.

Packaged food diets are not supported.

Think whole healthy foods. You are here to change for life, not just for a month or two.

Carlene is not a dietician, a medical or mental health professional. She is a woman who found her way out of obesity and has been helping other women do the same since 2005.

How We Work

Carlene believes in the power of working with peers. 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.

Yes, through all these years of helping women, Carlene does have her own ideas about what is healthy and what isn’t. But in the end, she has realized it’s support, guidance, motivation and truth women need to succeed.

Because we work in groups, all food discussion is private with Carlene. Why tempt those on a fast weight loss strict diet with a slower more varied diet’s food. Right?

What We Offer

There are daily audios Monday through Saturday. Each is recorded the night before. They are based on the struggles going on for the women at camp.

There are daily discussion based on those audios where you can discuss with your peers your own struggles and how to best get past them.

We offer smaller groups where you can work with people like minded as you lose your weight.

We offer challenges to motivate you to keep pushing through each day.

For those that choose to work with Carlene beyond the Group Only membership, there are two levels of membership. Access to Carlene as you need her or Daily accountability with Carlene.

Membership Options

For those who have never worked with Carlene before, please do our free week of Try Before You Buy. She will work with you individually that week and in a group environment to help you tweak your chosen diet and exercise plan.

If you decide to stay with us, you have multiple options on how to do that.

Patience and Perseverance

The hardest part about any diet is sustaining it long term. You must do a diet you believe in and will have the patience for when it comes to weight loss speed.

In that vein we have various groups at camp to support those going after fast weight loss, medium speed weight loss or slow and steady weight loss.

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, diet with 2 hours a day of walking. It is great for all or nothing types. But, it has its drawbacks. Those who run through big weight loss fast, skip the struggle that’s needed to beat what Carlene likes to call the Fat Brain. This struggle will happen in maintenance. There is no getting around it.

Fast Weight Loss, regardless of diet, causes hair loss. It grows back, but be prepared for that. Only healthy fast weight loss diets are supported. You must pass your fast weight loss diet by Carlene before joining our Fast Weight Loss Group.

A low-fat diet can cause gallstones. Do not eat a bunch of high fat, especially animal product fat, before going on a low-fat diet.

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

Steady Weight Loss

While not as much fun as fast weight loss, steady weight loss is better. It allows you the time to work through your food issues so when you get to maintenance most the struggles are behind you. But beware, maintenance always brings its own struggles like the idea that you’re cured and can go back to old behaviors. That is the biggest struggle you’ll face once you lose all your weight.

Slow Weight Loss

Slow weight loss is the thing we all missed out on in our lives. Had we just stuck to a diet that let us lose even just a pound a week, each year we would have lost 52 lbs. In all the years you’ve been dieting, what if you had done that? Weight loss wouldn’t be on your mind.

A slow weight loss diet is a diet you can live on for life, modified to give you some weight loss each week. It’s not for everyone, few have the patience to lose weight slowly. Which is too bad. If we had a true base diet we loved and with minor modifications let us lose weight, there would be no obesity.

Foteens Raw Food Diet Goal Journey with Before and AftersExercise

Exercise 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.

Most diets can offer steady weight loss. Exercise is important. Walking is the top exercise for weight loss. We have found that anaerobic exercise doesn’t burn fat the way extended effort does. Hiking, snowshoeing, swimming and a treadmill on incline give the best results. And it needs to be daily.

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, but not everyone can do raw, so she has created quick weight loss plans for a vegan diet and a quick weight loss plans for a whole food diet as well. She is all about getting healthy and these fast weight loss plans will do that for everyone.

But RFBC is about so much more than food and exercise. You can bring any whole food healthy diet to camp and be supported. Food and exercise are up to you. Those doing Access with Carlene, Daily with Carlene or Immersion with Carlene programs will work food and exercise out with Carlene. Group Only members that is up to you.

RFBC and all we do is working to break our fat brains and to rid ourselves of habits and excuses that have kept us fat. We also work on how to live in a world of abundance and socialize while dieting and maintaining.

We aren’t just about fast weight loss. We are more 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.

Special Discussions & Audios Available for a Short Time

Health and Life Need to Be on Separate Paths

I am a firm believer that if we put life on one path and health and wellbeing on another then no matter how chaotic, how traumatic or how euphoric life is, it shouldn’t affect how we care for ourselves.

I put together a page to share our audios and my discussion topics for three days at camp. If you would like to listen and read about this click here.

The response from our ladies on this subject was overwhelming and I was asked to save the audios, so I did. I hope they impact you as much as they did our RFBC team. Forgive all the extra stuff pertaining to camp and our weigh ins. These are the actual audios from our daily discussions for July 30, 31 and Aug 1, 2018.

Avoid Buyer’s Remorse

Don’t waste your money or time if you aren’t sure we are the right fit or you aren’t at the right time to work hard to not just lose weight fast but to lose it forever. Waiting or using a different program is fine. Your eventual success is what matters. If you’re still interested in RFBC, you have a lot of reading and listening to do! Trust me when I say: we’re worth it! ~ Carlene

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 question 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 or a whole food diet and walking as a means to lose weight fast. 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 get that history plays a role in many’s obesity.

We can’t fix the past, but we can forge a new future, and that is our goal. There is so much more to obesity than just overeating.

We know that because we have all been or still are obese. Together we work on breaking bad food behaviors, ignoring fat brain lies, and giving up on excuses. We come to terms with our bodies and learn how to eat for the best health possible.

While our fast weight loss plans give the obese quick results to keep motivated. Don’t let that fool you. Change With Carlene at Raw Food Boot Camp is about so much more than fast weight loss or the raw food, vegan or whole food diet. We are about change. Therefore, we don’t accept that we can’t do this. Instead, we see those before us who have done it and push for our own success. This is not always easy, but it is doable. For those of you who have lost hope, trust me when I say. If you are ready, we can help you do it. But you have to be ready.

You have to want this.

Carlene is our obesity weight loss coach
