Raw Food Boot Camp

Raw Food Boot Camp is unique in the raw food diet world,the fast weight loss world, and the dieting world in general. Why? While we are called Raw food Boot Camp, we only offer one 100% raw food diet, our other three diets utilize cooked veggies and/or other whole foods along with our raw food diet. And, while some have wanted her to take up the banner, Carlene, your weight loss coach, is not a raw food guru or even a purist. She is not a professional medical, nutritional, or mental health specialist. She is a woman who found her way out of her fat suit through raw food in 2005 and now helps others do the same. Obesity, not the raw food diet, is her passion.

A raw food diet is a tool, nothing more. It gives us fast, healthy weight loss, emphasis on healthy. Very few who go through Raw Food Boot Camp remain on a 100% raw food diet through maintenance. We go for a healthy sustainable maintenance diet. Raw or not. And, while we offer fast weight loss, as quick as 100 lbs in six months for those doing our Rawk Starz! program, we eat our way to health.

No drugs, no fasting, no living on protein shakes or juices.

If you don’t follow our healthy guidelines, for one, you won’t lose the weight as fast, and two, you will be asked to leave camp. Health is our number one priority. Fast weight loss is a perk to getting healthy!

Most diet programs want everyone to sign up and join. We don’t. Our before and afters are impressive, and unfortunately, they bring impulse buyers. We are not a quick fix program, we are about changing and that takes time, lots of time and effort. This is not easy. Those looking for a quick fix are best served elsewhere. Only those who understand our program and are ready to shed the fat suit are able to join. To ensure this, everyone must listen to our Introduction to Raw Food Boot Camp audios, read everything here on this site, and then take a 25 question quiz.

Don’t waste your money or time if you aren’t sure we are the right fit and you are at the right time to not just lose weight fast, but to lose it forever. If you’re still interested, you have a lot of reading and listening to do! I will say this: we’re worth it! ~ Carlene

New Side of RFBC Opening for
Those with a BMI Under 30

Starting July 14, 2014, RFBC now offers Raw Food Boot Camp for the Overweight

If you have 10-50 lbs to lose, you are now eligible to be part of a new side of camp. Our obese side of camp still stands, but now we have a second side, just for the overweight. All the rules of camp still apply. The fees are the same, the obligations are the same. You will do the same orientation as the obese, but on the Saturday following orientation, you will be moved to the overweight side of camp. 

Introducing our Anti-Depression Diet – Add On

A_sunflower

Introducing RFBC’s Anti-Depression Diet Add on

Depression and obesity go hand in hand for many. The depression causes us to not care. We feel trapped in our obesity, but we are too depressed to believe we will ever be able to rid ourselves of it. So, we get caught in a cycle of clogging our bodies with more junk, more toxins, which only make us more depressed. It’s a cycle we can’t seem to break.

Our raw food diets at RFBC are very cleansing, and for some, such as Carlene, that cleansing allows the body to function better. When the body functions better, when it gets unclogged and things start to flow and function as they should,  for some, depression clears up or at least eases up. After 6 months of RFBC style raw foods, Carlene was able to stop taking supplements to ease depression. She went from deep dark depression to having not experienced depression in the past 9 years.  She believes it was the cleaning of her liver that made the difference. Not all depression can be fixed with a cleansing raw food diet, but maybe, just maybe, yours can. However, if you’re too depressed to even try our raw food diets how will you ever get that cleansing effect. Right!

Our Anti-Depression Diet Add Ons are foods that we have discovered lift mood while allowing continual weight loss. These add on foods are foods you would eat on a regular vegetarian diet: beans, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower and sunflower seeds. 

Our add-on foods will not cure your depression. They will not make your life easier. They won’t pay your bills or get you a promotion. All they will do is lift your mood. It is with that lifted mood that you can find the hope and courage needed to go after a program like Raw Food Boot Camp and use a raw food diet for fast weight loss and better health.

Carlene knows depression. She’s lived it and she has lost a dear friend to it. If obesity is keeping you depressed. If depression is keeping you obese, then why not come and try our anti-depression add on diet with our Wholy Rawkers half raw food diet, and see if it will give you that extra boost to start taking back your life. Once you feel better, then you can switch up to our Butt Kickers diet and get the fast weight loss that will help keep you balanced and healthy.

In the past year, we have done some trials with our anti-depression diet. For everyone who stuck through the 2 weeks, everyone felt a significant decrease in depression. We used the Mayo Clinic’s Depression Rate app, but it seems to have been removed from their site.  Most of the numbers on the scale dropped by half after just two weeks. Again, our diet lifts mood, it does not cure depression.

Use PsychCentral’s Screening test to rate your level of depression

How our anti-depression diet add-on works is by increasing the synthesis of consumed tryptophan into serotonin. Eaten daily, our add on foods give you 100%of the RDA for tryptophan and folate. Folate, Niacin and b6 are needed for the synthesis to happen. Tryptophan is converted from your gut right to serotonin. It has very quick results. These add on foods give you what you need to increase your serotonin levels. Hence, the mood lift. Combined with the hemp we all eat daily, this combo could be the difference between you being obese at the start of the New Year, or you already half way to your dreams of slim, health, wellness, and happy. It could also mean an easier winter and holiday season.

To do the add-on Anti-Depression diet, simply let Carlene know when you start Orientation. Because of the beans, you won’t be able to do our Rawk Starz program. Butt Kickers is an 80% raw food diet program that still offers fast weight loss.

 

Showcase of Obesity Before and Afters

This program has changed my entire life for the better. I feel 150% percent better than when I started and most of my health issues have resolved themselves. I would recommend it to anyone. Carlene is stellar as a weight loss coach.Indigo

Who We Are

We are the Obese Helping the Obese

We are a small intimate group of obese men and 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. Everyday 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. Fast weight loss on our raw food diet gives us quick results to keep up motivated, but Raw Food Boot Camp is about so much more than fast weight loss or the raw food diet. We are about change. 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 that you will ever step away from the fat suit, 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. Fast weight loss on our raw food diet with walking is the way to go. Raw Food Boot Camp will give you the support, guidance, and tools to make it happen.

How We Work

Our Programs Are Designed for Lifetime Success

Raw Food Boot Camp is an on-line program offering fast weight loss for the obese using various percentages of a raw food diet. We use the private area of this website and a forum to work together daily. Carlene is your obesity weight loss coach. She too achieved fast weight loss on a raw food diet back in 2005. A raw food diet or whole food diet with walking are our methods for fast weight loss. Every Monday through Friday there is a daily audio that is recorded the night before based on what is going on at camp. These audios are available to our paying members who subscribe to our Audio Only, Group Only, or Full Group Membership Levels. Every day, there is a group wide daily discussion based on the audio. On the weekends, we have discussion without audios, but still they are quite lively. These daily discussions are available to our Group Only and Full Group Membership Levels. Every day, each member of our Full Group Membership Level is required to log their previous day’s food and exercise in a personal log with Carlene. Carlene will help them tweak their food, address their concerns, struggles, whatever in her daily responses to their log. While fast weight loss is most members goals, we do offer slower, more steady methods for those who want to do a part raw food diet. Full Group Members have daily access to Carlene via their logs, our Personal Messaging system and emails. Each week we work on a specific theme which can be usurped by anything going on at camp that needs to be addressed. These audios are not often about the raw food diet or fast weight loss, they are about change. For example, we could be talking about how to prepare for vacations one week when a couple of members are hit with high stress situations. The next day’s audio will be sidetracked to address how to manage stress without food and our daily discussion will be based on helping the individuals get through by using the group as a sounding board and as a means for even more successful experience in how to proceed without a binge or even a taste. This method works well. We are all about the individuals in our groups and work together as a team toward everyone’s success. For the Group Only and Full Membership Level members, we have SOS boards for immediate support, a venting area where members can vent about anything instead of eating over it, and sunshine boards which let us glow in the compliments, new discoveries, new clothes, etc., which make fast weight loss so much fun. Nothing is ever stagnant at RFBC. We want everyone to succeed. While our raw food diets are proven and true, our methods of change are forever evolving as we as a community get a better understanding of what it truly takes to say goodbye to the fat suit forever.

Our Raw Food Diets

What We Eat for health and weight loss

Raw food is the base of our diets. There are 4 different versions. Unlike other raw food diet programs, ours is low in fat, sugar and sodium. We don’t do recipes, nuts or dates! Imagine that! It’s the secret to our fast weight loss. What we do eat is a lot of low glycemic index fruits, low carb veggies, greens, hemp, flax, and chia seeds. Those who eat some cooked food, eat beans, lentils, quinoa, and low fat animal protein. No dairy. No soy. No wheat. And never anything processed. We do not juice, fast, or live on protein shakes. Those who try it never get the fast weight loss they come to camp for. It is mandatory that everyone eats a minimum of 1000 calories a day. Those that continually eat less than this will forfeit their membership. It’s an odd phenomenon. Everyone expects, eat less, lose more. But our bodies know the difference between health and starvation. We eat for health and our bodies reward us with fast weight loss. 1200 calories a day on our low fat, low sugar, low sodium raw food diet is how our big lossers get their fast weight loss. We are about health, and our raw food diet offers it. We offer the following 4 plans:

Rawk Starz! for those seeking truly fast weight loss

100% low fat, low sodium, low sugar raw food diet

Rawkinators – for those who want fast weight loss but need some warmth

80% low fat, low sodium, low sugar raw food diet. 20% steamed veggies.

Butt Kickers – for those willing to sacrifice some of the fast weight loss for cooked meals

80% low fat, low sodium, low sugar raw food diet. 20% low fat,low sodium, low sugar unprocessed whole foods. No dairy, soy or processed foods allowed.

Wholy Rawkers – for those where fast weight loss is not as important as changing their diet for health.

50% low fat, low sodium, low sugar raw food diet. 50%  low fat,low sodium, low sugar unprocessed whole foods. No dairy, soy or processed foods allowed. To learn more about our raw food diets click here.

Our Exercise

Exercise

For exercise, we walk. Many want to come to camp and get all their exercise at the gym with their fitness trainer. This doesn’t work. Fast paced cardio and weight training make you hungry, so you will want to eat more, and won’t burn the fat as well. Because we work together, it is important that we work the same program. You have to be willing to walk to join either the group only or full boot camp. Others are welcome to do our Audio only program and our On-Your-Own programs. If you can’t walk, email Carlene, oftentimes a solution can be found. Unfortunately, it can’t be a stationary bike. No one has ever lost weight with stationary bikes. Or yoga, sorry. Even bikram yogo. It has to be walking. Or… lap swimming. Continuous freestyle lap swimming. No floating, no stopping every lap. For fast weight loss, walk, snowshoe, hike. Do it for a long time at a speed where you can talk but not sing, and you will see the fat suit slip away. A treadmill on incline gives great results, but it’s pretty boring! Get some movies. On inclement days, you can do walking videos, but only as a last resort. Add a mini trampoline for best results. I know, walking isn’t sexy, but it is what works, and if you can keep from stumbling over curbs, it is a low impact, low injury exercise. Most importantly, in all the years Raw Food Boot Camp has been helping the obese lose weight fast, the only ones with fast weight loss were those that walked, a lot. It is duration and effort, not speed and miles that count.

The best thing I’ve ever done for myself was to find Carlene’s website and start Finding Your Perfect Diet followed by all of the Fat Brain Behavior courses. I admit that I have no will power but I do have determination. I was determined that I wasn’t going to be fat for the rest of my life. I was determined that I could keep up with my children. I was determined to wear regular sized clothes and I was determined to look attractive to my husband. And ladies, I’ve done it and so can you.TxGirl

Before and Afters at Raw Food Boot Camp

  • Michelle Hits 70 lbs Gone in Less than 4 Months September 10, 2014

    Michelle Hits 70 lbs Gone in Less than 4 Months!

    She won the 50 lbs gone in 12 weeks challenge in 11 Weeks

    She is one of our 100 lbs in 7 Month Challengers

    Imagine that. 70 lbs in less than 4 months, and feeling great. What more could you ask for from a dieting program. But I’m not going to tell you, I’m going to let Michelle tell you. I have copied, with her permission, two posts she made this past week in response to our discussion thread. Needless to say, we are all so proud of, and motivated by Michelle’s diligence. Even when not feeling well this past week (I think it’s her second round of detox), she has never wavered. From day one she has done our Rawk Starz Diet with 2 hours of walking a day. Now, let her motivate you!

    Oh yeah, with winning the 50 lb challenge, she earned 4 free weeks of camp with the ability to earn 4 more, if she hit 12 more pounds gone in the next 4 weeks. She so did that. So she will not get another 4 free weeks of camp, and as of today, she is just 1.2 lbs away from hitting 75 lbs gone and earning a coupon worth $75 off her next membership fees which are far from now! 

    Michelle 70 lbs Gone Fast Weight Loss Before and After

     

    We were talking about dealing with a fickle scale. Here is what Michelle had to say. 

     ”This time” is going to be my “last time” of having to take weight off.  This time I am doing it for a change of health, a change of attitude, a change of perception, a change of fitness, but most importantly a CHANGE OF LIFE.

    A few months ago I was thinking about how I would have ____when I reached goal.  What? Why in the heck would I be thinking of what crap food I wanted to eat when I finally get to the weight I dreamed of.  Skip forward to today…
     
    I am looking at the water when I go over the river bridge and thinking how good it looks for a kayak ride.  I am thinking about the color run my daughter and I are going to do.  I am thinking about what trail my son and I can go on for a bike ride.  I am thinking about being active and happy and fit and I am thinking about finally being the role model when it comes to food and fitness and health that my children need to help them be fit and healthy adults.
     
    I still have changes to do with my fat brain, but every day I get better and feel better and every day I learn more about myself and more about how and why I want to live a healthy and fit life for the rest of my time here on Earth.
     
    I will NEVER forget how I felt when I joined RFBC and I will NEVER be like that again.  It is baby steps, every second, every minute, every day I am getting there and I know that I NEVER want to go back to being morbidly obese again. 
     
    I can finally say out loud that I AM WORTH IT!!  I am worth the life that I want to live and I am worth working for and I am worth feeling proud of !!
     
    Yesterday, we were talking about having as much faith in ourselves as we have in the RFBC Programs. Here’s what Michelle had to say. Oh and when she says, she’d rather have a blank from aisle three, she means food! :)
     
    When I started any type of weight loss “diet” in the past I would start them knowing that I HAD to do it for weight loss and only weight loss. When I signed up for RFBC I not only knew I HAD to do it for weight loss, but also that I had finally WANTED to do it for weight loss, health, and a total lifestyle change. I have heard that 100 times over…you have to have a total lifestyle change. I had never been willing to change enough…UNTIL NOW!

    Every other time I started a “diet” I had binged on so many things and told myself I have to have this and that kind of food still so I can’t start this week. When I signed up for RFBC I didn’t do any of that. I didn’t binge the night before, I didn’t think oh man I gotta have __and__ still, I can’t start yet. 

    I was finally sick of being sick and tired and sick of being fat and unhealthy and unhappy with who I had become. I looked in the mirror (as little as possible) and I didn’t recognize the woman that I had become, the wife that my husband was stuck with or the mom that my children were supposed to look up to.

    I finally knew that I needed to change the way I was living. Was I really living? I was watching others live and my days of fun were in the past. I would have much rather been intimate with a ___from aisle 3 than my husband. I would rather watch another parent play catch with my son before a baseball game, after all it would have taken too much energy to get up from my seat. I was satisfied with my daughter not wanting to go to the mall with me. Why would she want to be seen with her morbidly obese mom that couldn’t walk very far without having to take a seat?

    I was/am finally ready to see something all the way thru until it is done and beyond! I am finally ready to be proud of myself! I am finally ready to live the life I was meant to! I am finally ready to be the wife my husband deserves! I am finally ready to be the mother my children need! I am finally ready to be the woman that I am on my way to becoming! I will never stop and I will never give up and I will live the rest of my life Happy,Healthy, and FIT! But most importantly I will NEVER let myself down again! 

  • Free hits 25 lbs Gone in 3 Weeks September 10, 2014

    Free Hits 25 lbs Gone in 3 Weeks

    Yup, that does say 3 weeks. I think even she was stunned by this. Today, she wrote and told me that she spent an hour reading through Michelle’s log at camp, and it hit her: she can do the same thing! So right she is! She was starting to think 2 hours of walking a day was too much, then she saw her before and afters, Michelle’s log, and decided 2 hours a day was just perfect! :) Congrats Free, you are on our way to qualifying for our 100 lbs in 7 Month’s Challenge.

    KaCastro Earns her first 25 lbs Gone Chip!

    KaCastro hit 25 lbs gone in six weeks here at RFBC. She is working with our Rawk Starz Divas and doing great. She started off a little slower, eating some foods that were not quite on plan, but now she has it and so far this month, she has dropped 6.2 lbs. That is .62 lbs a day!! That is very fast weight loss, and that includes traveling. She was so excited about hitting 25 lbs gone, that she didn’t wait for Wednesday’s weigh in, she did it Tuesday, she just had to know. For her 25 lbs gone, she’ll receive a coupon worth $25 off her next membership, and one of our darling 25 lbs Gone Incentive chips in the mail.

    PaulaBear Celebrates 50 lbs Gone!

    PaulaBear started on March 31st, and this past weekend, she hit her 50 lbs gone mark. We are all so proud of her. 5 Months, 50 lbs gone. Something to celebrate here at RFBC. Not everyone is a diva at camp, but Paula, who is a Group Only member can attest to how everyone can do this. Whether it’s 50 lbs in 3 month, 5 months or even 9 months, the thing about this is perseverance. Paula never gives up, she never backs off. She fights through the tough and the good times. She is our every woman at camp. You can look at her success and say to yourself. I can have what Paula got! And look at the B&A below. She has got a lot. Or rather, has lost a lot!

    PaulaBears 50 lbs Gone Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    I am so proud of Paula. She has gone away on vacations and done the Group Only Program here at camp. She has struggled and she has got right back up. She is a hero here at camp because not once in these past 5 months have I ever heard her waiver on her determination to see this through. So, please celebrate this big loss with us and cheer Paula on as she works hard to break all her fat brain behaviors and habits to take this all the way to goal, and then keep it off for life. 

    RFBC needs more PaulaBears. Perseverance, determination, and a refusal to do anything other than succeed. Congratulations, PaulaBear.

    PaulaBear does a 90% raw diet with an average of 1 hour of walking a day.

  • Menza’s Hits 60 lbs Gone in 4.5 Months August 22, 2014

    Menza’s Hits 60 lbs Gone in 4.5 Months

     Menza is one of the busiest women I know. This weekend she is putting on a post-graduation party for her son. Then she is on to the next production her family theater is producing for the fall. Her home life is chaos half the time with so many teenagers in and out, so many deadlines. The other day, she wrote me and said she had this ominous feeling like she was doomed to fail. That happens, especially around the 4 month mark. Most of us aren’t used to dieting for this long, and if we do, this is the time we quit. But, for Menza, the answer was easy. I asked her about her plays and how often she gets that overwhelming sense of, how will we pull this off. She replied it was exactly how she felt a month before opening day. She panics, but then reminds herself get this thing done right now and then she’ll do the next thing until everything gets done, and if she misses something, so be it. The show will still be awesome. Just like her journey here!

    Menzas 60 lbs Gone Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    Last week, Menza pulled a groin muscle and has been in a lot of pain. Diva that she is, she kept up her exercise by doing Chair Cardio. Today she wrote and told me she was antsy. She never thought she would need or rather want to exercise to feel right. This is all so very cool.

  • Foteens Goal Wall August 21, 2014

    Foteen’s Goal Wall

    One of the things we do at camp is put up reminders of where we want to go with our weight loss. I reference the yogurt commercial fo the girl walking by her itzy bitzy yellow polka dot bikini. 

    Foteen decided to put together a goal wall in her treadmill and scale room. I knew about the shirt, as I showed many a few weeks ago when she hit 50 lbs gone. I did not know about the rest of the clothes.

    Here is her goal wall:

    Foteen Goal Wall

    She told me today there is only one dress left to fit into. I guess that will be her goal dress, as she is just about ten pounds away. Do you see that shirt and pair of slacks to the left: They have hung on her wall since the beginning. Now look at them. No longer wall art but wadrobe:

  • JanBree Hits 60 lbs Gone in 6 Months August 20, 2014

    JanBree Hits 60 lbs Gone in 6 Months

    The other day, Jan talked to me about how she was a slower loser. She worried she hadn’t kept pace with Michelle or the Michelle-O-Meter, as she called her! I had to shake my head. Jan didn’t come to camp for the 100 lb challenge, she came to camp to become a thin healthy woman with a new attitude toward food and her body. Which is easily happening for her.  So, I asked her: “When was the last time you lost 60 lbs in 6 months?” “Never,”she replied! 

    So what do you think? Was six months worth her time for this kind of change? 

    I know what you’re thinking. That can’t possibly be the same woman. I even thought that. When I sent the photos to Jan, she wrote back and agreed, no one was going to believe it was the same woman especially with her head cut off,  so she offered to let you see her face. How cool is that? All I had to say was wow, wow, wowzer!

    OMG!!!!!  I can’t believe that was me then–and omg look at me now.  Wow.  That person in the before picture–I don’t even know how I functioned.  I remember feeling sad and hopeful at the same time in that before picture.

    How cool is it that her B&As even surprised her! Congratulations JanBree! We are all so proud of you.

    Wow, I was amazed at the big change in Rudy with her first 25 lbs gone. Normally, there isn’t a huge difference, but check out her side and back photos. The fat has melted from her midde. I can speak for all of us when we say, losing that belly is a big incentive for keeping going. Congrats Rudy. You are doing great.

    Jenna’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters

    Woo Hoo! Jenna hit her 25 lbs gone mark, and you can see it in the photos below. She had a slow start, but picked up on our Rawk Starz Diva Challenge and has had amazing losses the past few weeks.  We are expecting lots more from her!! Or rather, lots less!

    This past Friday night, Jenna found herself mourning her old foods and feeling down in the dumps. She reached out to the women in her challenge group and asked for support, which they immediately gave her. Instead of quitting, instead of giving in to the desire to chuck it and eat off plan, she went to the gym and put in two hours on the treadmill.  That was her big hero moment of the weekend and how she came to earn her 25 lbs gone incentive chip! We are all so proud of her.

    Foteen 50 lbs Gone Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    Foteen Raw Food Diet Scale 50 Foteen left for six weeks in May for a European vacation. When she came back she had maintained her weight and was ready to move to this big milestone. Actually, she has hit three milestones. She has lost 3/4 of the weigh she came to camp to lose. She has entered into the 150′s, and she has hit 50 lbs Gone. These were milestones she set for herself and she is more than proud of reaching them.

    To keep her mind on the prize, at her scale, Foteen hung a blouse she wanted to fit into at goal, and she made a paper chain for every pound she wanted to lose. There are only fifteen more loops on that chain. What a count down!

  • Otavia Celebrates One Year Anniversary at Goal July 4, 2014

    Otavia Celebrates One Year Anniversary at Goal

    On July 2, 2013, Otavia reached her goal weight. She swore that day that she would stick with Raw Food Boot Camp and the support we offer for one full year. She kept her promise. She wasn’t at camp every day. She didn’t log her food every day. But she was there a lot and always remained honest with what she was eating, even when she knew I would be on her about it. 

    As a reminder. Here are her before and afters from last year:

    Otavia Anniversary Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    She is not living on a 100% raw diet. She eats lots of fruits and veggies each day and then eats an omnivore diet of whatever she wants in moderate portions. She maintains her calories between 1200-1800 a day, and even has a glass or two of wine here and there. She’s far from perfect, but what she does have is the desire and determination to make this work for her for life. She swears she will never be obese again. 

    How she keeps this in the forefront of her mind is that she has stayed accountable at Raw Food Boot Camp, participates on a regular basis inspiring everyone with her wisdom and wit, and once a month she participates in a fun run of sorts. Obstacle courses, Electric Runs, Mud Runs. Below is a collage of some of the photos she’s sent over the past year.

    Otavia Collage Maintenance Before and Afters

     

     Here’s what Otavia had to say about her anniversary:

    A long time ago, Carlene said,”…losing weight is the easy part….keeping it off it the hard part….” because of that statement, I decided I needed to stick with RFBC for a minimum of a year at maintenance.  All I can say is I AM SO GLAD I DID :)

     Maintaining weight is a whole process in and of itself that needs to be learned.  I was just talking to my sister over the weekend.  She is struggling, she has released 38# and just got into Two-Town….I can’t seem to get her to join RFBC….but I feel confident that she will reach the conclusion that it is a darned good place to be. She is doing Weight Watchers.  It has taken her 8 months to release not quite 40#’s.

     Anyway….I have found the key to releasing weight, is to JUST DO IT! All diets work if you just follow them….some just work faster than others and are easier to convert to a “normal” lifestyle.   If you  wander off the path, if you trip, if you fall off the path….heck if you run off the path with a machete in hand trying to create a new path…..just keep getting back onto the beaten path, because WE KNOW IT WORKS!  

     PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF!!!!

    If you continue to make the right choices….results have no choice but to follow. Remember the fish will always follow the head.

    I will be here at RFBC for some time to come.  I have realized (CRAPPOLLA) that my obesity is only in remission right now, and it has not been cured :(  I need to stay until I no longer have a FAT BRAIN.

    What I am working on right now is to have a diet and lifestyle that I can truly follow for the rest of my life. And….it is a process,  I am figuring out what works and what doesn’t….I occasionally still fight (and sometimes lose) the urge to emotionally/stress eat and/or volume eat just because something tastes good. I continue to have to be mindful of making good choices, although that is MUCH easier now than it was a year ago :)

    My biggest challenge is to maintain awareness of satiety and put something down, put it away or throw it away once I am satisfied……overall I feel I am making good food choices.  I have realized that during this journey my tastes have actually changed!  That is a good….NOPE….that is a GREAT thing!  My goal is for the rest of my life to continue eating 80% fruits and veggies everyday (not necessarily raw) and the other 20% low fat, low sugar, low sodium.

    I appreciate all the support here at RFBC because I know that the insights I have learned about myself through this experience will allow me to be Fit and Fabulous at 55, 65, 75, 85+  

    I AM TRULY A WORK IN PROGRESS 

    I AM TRULY LOVING LIFE 

    I WILL NEVER BE OBESE AGAIN 

    I WILL BE FIT AND FABULOUS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!

    Thank you for your continued support!

  • Green Queen Hits Goal Today! June 25, 2014

    Green Queen Hits Goal Weight Today!

    61.1 lbs Gone Forever as she moves into Maintenance

    Green Queen Goal Scale Photo

    GreenQueen is a no-photo option member, so all you get to see are her feet. I saw her face, her body, her new look, and you’ll have to trust me on this. She looks great! 

    GreenQueen has learned so much about herself and food through her weight loss process, that we’re looking for an easier transition to maintenance. She gets what she needs to do now, and has no expectations on being perfect every day for the rest of her life. But she is sure, that when she isn’t perfect to her maintenance plan, that it is not going to be for weeks on end, added pounds on end, but just for that moment. She’s proven throughout her program that she can do this. It was harder at first, but through practice, she has learned that one break doesn’t require a second. This is one of the biggest lessons at Raw Food Boot Camp.

    I hope you will congratulate her for this great success and support and encourage her as she transitions from weight loss mode to maintenance. She’s already planning to spend the next year with us to ensure maintenance is for life.

    I know I speak for everyone at camp to say how proud we are of GreenQueen and how appreciated she is for the wealth of encouragement and inspiration she has shared during her weight loss journey.

What We Are Working On

  • A Summer of Girls on Fire!

    This summer (winter in the southern hemisphere) we are pushing our idea of Girls on Fire. We are all about just doing it and getting it done. We have set up challenge groups, challenge mentalities where we don’t fight the diet and exercise, where we don’t live on excuses and I can’ts. Instead we are supportive of each other and push each other for success. 

    Each week a new challenge group begins. Each member picks the one she will commit too, then as a team, a smaller group of women, they work together to go after their dreams. The ladies at camp are loving it. They were meant to be just through May, but have proven so successful we are continuing them through the summer.

    If you’re serious about losing your fat suit, come join our fee based program and work with us to use raw food and walking to free you of your obesity and then work with us as you build your confidence, break old fat behaviors and habits, and change your life forever.

Join our Free Membership Area to learn more about us, a raw food diet, and fast weight loss. There are free courses to take, information areas, and of course access to all of our fee based membership options. Please bear with me as I am expanding this site weekly. After years of using our original site, which was becoming obsolete because of new technology, I opted to recreate how all of Raw Food Boot Camp® works, technology wise. I am doing this all by myself, so it may be a while before it is glitch free and full of all the features I am adding.
