So many people come to RFBC thinking if they join they should get the great results our before and afters show for other RFBC ladies. The truth is for every awesome B&A there are many others who joined RFBC and quit way before they saw great results.
Why? Because while their dream was success, they didn’t understand the effort and dedication required for great success. They didn’t want to work with others and they didn’t want Carlene telling them how to do this right.
Not everyone is a good fit for Carlene and RFBC.

Wow, it looks like you, Carlene and RFBC are truly the right fit.
You know, it might be a tougher program than most, but for someone like you, it can be the answer to what you’re looking for. Carlene always says that finding her Rawk Starz program was like having a fairy godmother tap her on the head and say, “I give you permission to be thin.” The fairy godmother didn’t make her thin, she did that with her hard work and fortitude. It seems like you’re wanting Carlene to do that for you. She’ll guide, motivate and encourage even pick you up after a fall, but in the end, it will be your hard work that gets you there.
Your next step is deciding when.
Make sure you have gone through the website, listened to the audios, and chosen the right diet to start with.
If your thinking about doing our fastest weight loss program, go through the Rawk Starz Program questionnaire to see if that’s right for you.

We both know RFBC and Carlene are not for you
No shame on that for either of us. RFBC isn’t for everyone. Carlene knows that. She would rather you figure that out now than having you join and hating it.
Best wishes to you on your weight loss journey.
Question 1 of 10
Are you Obese?
RFBC was specifically designed for the obese. In the beginning, almost all the women who joined RFBC were 100 lbs or more overweight. We had a 60 lb requirement to join. Carlene saw obesity as a number. She has since learned it’s not.
If you only have 10-20 lbs to lose and have been thin most of your life, RFBC and Carlene aren’t for you. We deal with the obese and with that, we mean obese mindset.
You could just be 30 lbs overweight but have fought that 30 lbs all your life. You could be 100 lbs overweight and have never had an issue with it and don’t consider yourself obese or having food issues.
Where are you on that scale?CorrectIncorrect
Question 2 of 10
How Bad Do You Want It?
When Carlene found raw food back in 2005, she had lost all hope of every beating her obesity. No diets worked for her. That very day she sat alone, depressed, sure obesity was her lot in life, a heart attack was in her near future maybe diabetes and there was no way out. Rock Bottom. She was about to accept her fate. Then she heard Woody Harrelson mention a raw food chef. Raw food? What was that? She had seen an article a day or two before that said, Raw Foodists are thin but have strong bones. There was a glimmer, a small hope. One last thing to try.
Carlene believes to really want something, to envoke change and be willing to work really hard for it, it has to mean something to us. It has to bring hope where we’ve lost all belief there is any.
RFBC requires hard work, commitment, determination. To succeed you have to want to rid yourself of your fat suit much more than you want to eat at restaurants, drink at parties, or stay cuddled up in your blankets in the rain.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 meaning you want that fat suit gone so bad you’re willing to try anything. How Bad Do You Want It?CorrectIncorrect
Question 3 of 10
Accepting You Have Food Issues
Over the years, Carlene has lost members when she brings up food addictions. Many don’t want to acknowledge they have any food issues. They blame their bodies, their parents, their life, the universe and swear their weight is not their fault.
At RFBC we realize that to lose weight and keep it off we have to come face to face with ourselves and take full responsibility for our weight. Maybe the past, our genes, our health, fate even, played a role in how we got where we are but the truth is we are responsible for what and how much we eat.
If we remain obese that is on us, now today. It is ours and only our fault we are still obese.
Some find this offensive. Do you?CorrectIncorrect
Question 4 of 10
Accountability, Obligation & Honesty
When Carlene lost her weight there was a group of women who were following her journey on a forum she belonged to. Every day they waited for her journal entries, her weigh ins and notes on how the day went. These women made her feel accountable. She felt if she didn’t stick to her plan, she would let this group of women down. One day when she felt she would attack a pizza delivery man to get just the box, she thought of these women. If she ate off plan, she would have to tell them. She felt obligated to tell them the truth because of how gracious they had been to her. She knew they would be disappointed in her. That sense of obligation and accountability made her take a deep breath and get over the cravings. She did not want to let them down.
When these same ladies asked her to start a support group to help them, she knew accountability and a sense of obligation to the group were important factors in staying on plan. That is why they are a big part of RFBC.
If you were to join RFBC, are you willing to be honest with your journey and stay accountable to us with participation, asking for support, and tracking your food and exercise daily?CorrectIncorrect
Question 5 of 10
Are You More Likely to Rebel than Follow Through
So many ladies come to camp, do great and then decide, “I don’t have to do things Carlene’s way. I can do it my own and still succeed.” Carlene isn’t going to argue that point with anyone. She probably couldn’t have done RFBC when she lost here weight for this exact reason.
But here’s the truth.
When you rebel, it’s not against Carlene or anyone else. You rebel against yourself, against your own dreams and wants. The only one hurt is you. While Carlene wants to see you succeed, she also knows that it’s not always the right time for everyone and that RFBC and her guidelines aren’t right for many. But she does know the truth. When people want to rebel, they really just want to go eat food not on their program and use this idea of being a rebel as a way to get it.
Do you think the need to rebel in you will overpower the want to be thin and healthy?CorrectIncorrect
Question 6 of 10
How Much of a Perfectionist Are You?
Ah, perfectionism. Carlene had it. If she wasn’t the best, if she couldn’t do it perfectly, she’d walk away rather than face the truth she couldn’t be the best. This idea of perfectionism is one of the biggest downfalls of women who join RFBC. Because of how tight the guidelines are to our program, we attract many all or nothing type of people who are obsessed with perfectionism.
They feel their journey is in competition with all the other ladies at camp. They pride themselves on always being on plan and over exercising. Of getting the best weigh ins each week.
But then they have a slip, a minor one, and they disappear. Instead of admitting they had a weak moment they just leave camp altogether. That’s crazy, right? But it happens all the time. I’m the best or I’m not at all.
Carlene was like that and has stories to tell, but in the end, she learned, as you must learn, that the idea of perfectionism is a lie. No one is perfect. We’re all human and however we formed this notion that we have to be perfect it too was a lie. It takes courage to admit to not always being the best and through that courage strength is born. Being strong, focused, determined is not the same as being perfect.
Perfection is an excuse to quit. Accepting you cannot always be perfect is essential to living your life outside of your fat suit.
If you have perfectionist tendencies, are you willing to fight through them and not quit when you aren’t perfect?CorrectIncorrect
Question 7 of 10
How Thick is Your Skin?
Not to say you have to have thick skin to work with Carlene, but fragile doesn’t work either. In the beginning of RFBC all the way through more than the middle, Carlene was a tough drill sergeant. You can look at this any way you want, but it was during those years that RFBC saw its greatest number of successes.
Through the years, Carlene has mellowed some, but she doesn’t coddle or enable. She will be honest with you and that at times can hurt.
Many want to be told an oops I blew it, is okay. While it is okay in the sense that we can’t fix the past we can only learn from it. Carlene wants you to examine those falls, not just accept you had no control. She believes in choice and that with each fall, each piece of off plan food we eat, it is a declaration that off plan food is more important to us than being thin and healthy. Oh, she gets where that comes from. We’re all human. But she will make you examine the choice so you can come up with ways to bolster the right choice the next time you get in the same spot.
Changing the fat brain to a thin brain takes lots of practice. Each fall becomes a training moment, but if you want to just pass over it, ignore it, pretend it’s not a big deal, then you are destined to make the same bad choice over and over again.
You pay Carlene to be part of RFBC. It is her job to call you out on these types of things. We all have a cupboard full of excuses to get to our favorite foods. She will make you work hard to clean that cupboard out by looking at each rationalization until you see the lie it’s based on.
Do you think your skin is thick enough for being called on your excuses?CorrectIncorrect
Question 8 of 10
How Much Does the Idea of Winning Matter
Odd question, right? Over the years RFBC has offered monetary and free time at camp challenges. They’ve been great and have incentivized many to push through.
Many dieters join programs where they bet on their weight loss. Lose the most and win the most.
Is that you? Do you feel more motivated if you think you’ll win something for it?
Carlene put out a survey to her newsletter a while back and asked if people felt they should be paid for losing weight, and a few answered, most definitely.
Is that you? Do you have to win something to be motivated to succeed?CorrectIncorrect
Question 9 of 10
Scheduling Time for Yourself and RFBC
One of the hardest things women have to face is finding the time to take care of themselves. RFBC requires somewhere between 30 minutes and 45 minutes a day and that is on top of exercise and food prep.
RFBC daily audios average about 15 minutes a day. Many listen when driving or getting ready in the morning. You may need to check in multiple times a day with Carlene if you are struggling. We have a daily discussion thread that you’re expected to participate in, daily, where we discuss the weight loss journey and the struggles associated with it. There are places to meet up with other members for support based on mutual issues or experiences. You have to fill out food logs and let Carlene know each day how you did.
RFBC is like a part-time job.
Are you willing to make the time commitment required to succeed at RFBC?CorrectIncorrect
Question 10 of 10
Are You A Foodie and Want to Remain One?
This is one of the hardest questions you have to answer. It seems if we want to lose weight, we know that being a Foodie doesn’t work, but there are many aspects to this that will sabotage you along the way.
Some blatantly call themselves Foodies and have no intention of every controlling their food. Food is pleasure and they will not give it up. A vegan, even a rawfoodist can be a Foodie.
Others don’t see themselves like some of the celebrated Foodies we see online or on TV, but still, believe in a need to eat out and try all new foods is a right, not a choice.
We get this at RFBC. Food is a big part of culture, celebrations and even fun. But we have weight issues. Food issues. The Foodie life just isn’t for us.
This might be the question that breaks you.
Are you a proud Foodie, and if so, are you willing to give that up?CorrectIncorrect
