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

Two Sides of RFBC
The Obese and The Over Weight

Why are the two weight groups separated? Mainly because it is hard for someone who needs to lose 200 lbs to hear someone who needs to lose 30 lament over how her size 12′s are too tight, when our obese member hasn’t seen a size 12 since she was a teen. Issues are the same, daily discussions are the same, you are treated the same, but by separating the groups you get to work with your true peers. People who understand your struggle from your point of view. This is one of the things that makes RFBC so unique. 

Notice: After Dec 15, overweight members will only be allowed to join our Group Only membership. Current members will be able to continue full membership after the 15th. This only applies to those that join after the 15th. We should open the overweight side back up to Full Membership by March. This is to ensure there is enough Full Membership spots open for those who are obese to get into camp. Sorry, I’m just one woman and there are only so many full members I can support at one time! 

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

I got my 75 pound chip and card today, thank you so much and thank you for the wonderful card. When I first started looking at RFBC I was such a lost soul that didn’t think I would be able to do everything you required. Now I know that I can do anything that I set my mind to. Thank you for helping me to believe in myself again! Michelle

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

    Free’s 60 lbs Gone in 3 Months Before and Afters

    Not only did Free win our 50 lb challenge last month at 9 weeks, she hit 60 lbs gone in 3 months. Awesome!! Free is a perfect diva. She has not broken her food plan or missed one day of her 2 hours of walking since she started with us.

    She is a valued member of our Rawk Starz Diva Challenge group. As you can see by her before and afters, it has really paid off. Check out her face. I keep saying she looks like a teenager now. But she’s not. She has a nine year old son! 

    Talking about her son, when she started RFBC her big dream was to be 50 lbs lighter by her son’s 9th birthday, which happened to coincide with the day she hit 59.8 lbs gone!! What a gift to both of them. If you read her new Journey Page, you’ll see what they did together to celebrate. 

    Frees 60 lb Fast Weight Loss with raw food diet before and afters

    On hitting her 60 lbs gone mark, she is now officially an RFBC Diva with her own journey page and spotlight on our website. Keep your eye on her, she is going to win that 100 lb Challenge in March, but hit that 100 lbs gone mark much sooner. Way to go, Free.

  • SunnyB Hits 40 lbs Gone in 4 Weeks!! November 18, 2014

    SunnyB Hits 40 lbs Gone in 4 Weeks and Officially Joins our 100 lb Challenge

    Okay, first, let me state that 40 lbs gone in 4 weeks is a record at RFBC, and it is so far from our average. Most of those doing the Rawk Starz diet with 2 hours of walking a day average 40 lbs in 8 weeks. That is double the time it has taken SunnyB. Also, unlike most here at camp, SunnyB is going to do two 100 lb Challenges back to back. 

    Sunny has actually been having some foot problems and on some days has had to do chair cardio for exercise, but she keeps pushing to walk. Her food has been spot on, her attitude as sunny as her name. Everyone at camp is already inspired by her story, and it’s just begun. 

    Please follow Sunny’s journey, and cheer her on. She is a little skeptical of herself, but I believe in her ability to take this all the way.

  • Pogo Wins 50 lbs in 12 Weeks Challenge in 11 Weeks! November 17, 2014

    Pogo Wins 50 lbs in 12 Weeks Challenge in 11 Weeks!

    Pogo did it. She hit her first 50 lbs gone in 11 weeks, not the 12 allowed in the challenge. It hasn’t always been easy for her. She’s had her falls, but she got up each and every time and pushed forward. Everyone at camp has been cheering her on, and she didn’t let them down.

    She did want me to tell you that her after clothes are ones she would never wear in public. I teased her back, that’s what almost everyone says about their after clothes!

    The cool thing is that one day soon, these clothes will be big and baggy on her. So, she’s right, she probably will never have the chance to wear these clothes out in public.

  • KaCastro 50 lbs in 3.5 Months Before and Afters November 14, 2014

    KaCastro 50 lbs in 3.5 Months Before and Afters

    What a week the Divas are having. Today, KaCastro hit 50 lbs gone in 3.5 months using a raw food diet for fast weight loss. At times she wonders if it’s fast weight loss. But seriously. 50 lbs in 3.5 months is awesome.

    KaCastro is one of our divas. She does our 100% low fat, low sodium, low sugar raw diets with a minimum of 2 hours of walking a day. Lately, she’s taken that up to 3 hours a day. You so don’t have to do that. I did, but you don’t. 

    This week KaCastro is helping our new group of divas in their first ever challenge. She has become such a voice at camp. Always encouraging her team, always up even when the scale sticks at points, always saying, hey, it will come off, no worry. This is what makes her a true diva. She knows the process, she trusts it, and she sticks to it.

    I know, I speak for all of us at RFBC. We are very proud of her.

    KaCastro's 50 lbs Fast Weight Loss with a Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    KaCastro offered to show her face in her before and afters. You won’t have to do that unless you offer (I rarely ask) or you’re doing our 100 lb challenge. I’m so glad she offered. Look at her face. Wow, she’s a new woman. The fifty pounds are really showing. Check out her back view. I love before and afters. They really show the truth behind the health of our diet and how great walking is for us. 

    Thanks KaCastro for sharing.

  • Michelle – 100 lbs Gone in 6 Month with a Raw Food Diet November 13, 2014

    Michelle – 100 lbs Gone in 6 Month with a Raw Food Diet

    Six months to the day! 100 lb Gone. Michelle achieved her fast weight loss with a raw food diet and two hours of walking a day. Okay, our raw food diet is not the typical one. We do low fat, low sugar, low sodium. We walk to burn fat. It is the best way to lose weight. 

    Michelle is a classic example of what can happen for many. She did not break her program even once. She did not skip one day of walking. She is a leader here at camp, not just in weight loss, but in support, motivation, and encouragement. 

    As for the 100 lb Challenge, she doesn’t win that until Dec 12th’s weigh in. That is a way I ensure members don’t hit the goal and run back to their old ways. Now she has a month to settle in and finish off her last 11 pounds before goal. I have no doubt she will have her final before and afters on Dec 12th. Then off to maintenance for life. 

    Okay, get out those tissues. Michelle started at RFBC on May 12th of 2014. Today, Nov 12th of 2014, she is 100 lbs lighter. Why the tissues? For two reasons, you can’t help but be touched by her amazing progress and how wonderful she looks, and you wished you had started with us back in May! Okay, I’m teasing. But really. Hold on. She’s beautiful.

    Michelle's 100 lbs Gone Fast Weight Loss with Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    I asked Michelle to write something out to share with all of you who follow her story. I was it expecting it to be about her, about how her life has changed, but instead she chose to write to you. To tell you that there is hope for all of us who have lived with obesity.

    In her own words:

    No matter how many times you have tried to lose weight and failed, no matter how many times you doubted yourself know this…You CAN do anything you set your mind to, you ARE worth putting the time and effort into yourself, you are stronger than you think you are.  When you feel like quitting….that is when you have to push yourself even harder than you thought you could go.  With Carlene as your coach and all the wonderful and supportive people at RFBC you WILL be successful.  If you put the work in and stay on plan and do your walking you will reach your goals!

    Although I’m not at my goal weight yet one of my goal was to lose 100 pounds.

    I would like to thank my Diva family, they are my friends, my push, my support, and my success is not only for myself, but for them as well.  I love each and every one of them and thankful that they are on this journey to a new life with me!

    Michelle

    Just to clarify, her Diva family is the other women at camp she works intimately with every day. And she is just 11 lbs from her goal weight of 125.

    Michelle is a Rawk Starz Diva all the way!

     

  • Menza’s 80 lbs Gone in 7 Months November 7, 2014

    Menza’s 80 lbs Gone in 7 Months

    Menza hit 80 lbs gone this past week. At times she has felt the losses have been slow, but let’s take a look at that. In seven months she has done what most can’t. 7 Months ago, in April, she looked at our webpages, she thought about what we do, and decided to take a chance. But just like everyone who joins, I’m sure there was as much doubt as excitement. Could this really happen for me? This only happens for others. Not me.

    In that, she was wrong. I think she would tell you that this has been a long journey. We all tend to forget the accomplishment behind a loss like this. We look at it day to day, we compare ourselves against others, but the truth is, seven months ago, the idea of being in a size 8 for Menza was crazy. That was like looking for miracles. And yet, here she is, in her teenage daughter’s clothes looking fantastic. In just seven months! 

    I applaud you Menza. I know your fellow divas cherish you and see you as an inspiration and mentor. You will all hit goal and maintenance as a team, one of the strongest teams we’ve ever had at camp. Congratulations.

    Menza Fast Weight loss with raw food diet and 80 lbs gone before and after

    A raw food diet rawks. Fast weight loss is awesome. But health is our overall goal. Okay, you can’t see her face, but even by looking at the tone of her body, at the smooth of her arms, you can see the health. What we do here is good. And, I have to admit, even I am touched by not just the physical changes these women are making, but the lifelong changes in attitude about what they want health wise and food wise for the rest of their lives. None of them plans to be raw for life, but none plan on returning to old behaviors and habits either. They know now how good it feels to be healthy and plan to be with us through maintenance for a very long time.

    I do believe, I do believe. In RFBC. What about you? 

  • MichelleLeanne hits 25 lbs Gone! November 6, 2014

    MichelleLeanne hits 25 lbs Gone!

    Looking at these B&As, it’s hard to believe she could lose any more weight, but she wants to lose 7 more pounds before goal. She promises to not wear such baggy pants for her goal photos! She is wearing the same pair of jeans in each photo. 

    MichelleLeanne 25 lbs Gone Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    MichelleLeanne is in our Overweight group. You may have guessed that, right. She had a lot to get through since she joined camp. Coming from an area in New Zealand that had been devastated by earthquakes a year or so back, she has been living in a caravan as she helped with rebuilding. Internet was sketchy and outright down at times, there was over a week where we didn’t hear from her at all. But she didn’t give up on us or her. In seven weeks she went from squishy, as she liked to call it, to dance ready! She is liking how she looks. To me that is even better than goal!

    MichelleLeanne does our Wholy Rawkers diet with an average of 1 hour a day of walking
  • Tess hits 40 lbs Gone! November 4, 2014

    Tess Hits 40 lbs Gone!

    Doesn’t she look great. I actually asked Tess to show her face because of how happy she looks. And beautiful, and healthy! Look at that side jawbone! She graciously agreed. Not to worry, I rarely ask people who aren’t doing the 100 lb challenge to do this. Tess is like family at camp, so I felt like it was okay. 

    Tess’s story is a little different. She started with us in February, was doing well, but had some personal things come up so she dropped out of camp. She returned in September with most of her previous loss intact and is hitting it hard. She is doing our wholy rawkers diet with 45-60 minutes of walking a day, and lost 25 lbs in less than 8 weeks. 

    For those who join our obese side of camp. Her honesty and drive is a major force in our weekly accountability conversation groups. She’s even been translating things into German and Norwegian for two of our overseas members! We’ll have to see what she does for one of our newest members from Nigeria!

    Polly Hits 25 lbs Gone her First 4 Weeks

    It is not that uncommon for newbies doing our Rawk Starz diet to hit 25 lbs gone their first 4 weeks. Polly, doesn’t do our Rawk Starz diet, she is doing our Wholy Rawker’s diet. Her steadfastness to this diet has been perfect. Her attitude has been, just do it all the way. I have no doubts she is ready to take this all the way.

    Krinkels 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters

    Krinkels is the first member of our new OverWeight group to hit a big milestone like this, and we are very proud of what she has accomplished and what she has contributed to camp. 

    She is so pleased with the results she offered to show her face to the world. She likes what she sees. How cool is that?

    She told me that she hid in her carport to take her start photos, but gladly stepped outside for her after shots. I’m not sure I get the hiding, but I certainly get the feeling great about how she looks. Beautiful, wouldn’t you agree.

    Here is what Krinkels said today after we all oohed and ahhed over her before and afters:

    Thank you Carlene!!  I am so grateful to you and your program.  I feel so healthy mentally, physically and spiritually.  I feel I can handle anything thrown my way and feel so much empowerment.  I am excited for my future and to see what the new year brings me!!  Rawk on!!!

  • Free Hits 50 lbs Gone in 9 Weeks and Wins our 50 lb Challenge October 21, 2014

    Free Hits 50 lbs Gone in 9 Weeks and Wins our 50 lb Challenge

    Okay, okay, the 50 lb Challenge is a 12 week challenge. Free decided she’d get there faster. Just 9 weeks. Can you imagine? Like Michelle, Free has been perfect to her plan with both diet and exercise since day one. She has been focused and determined.  When we say Rawk Starz, we’re talking Free all the way!! I am so proud of her.

    Check out these new before and afters! She is looking great. I think even she is in disbelief.

    Frees 50 lb Gone Fast Weight Loss with Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    For winning the 50 lbs in 12 (9) Week Challenge. Free receives 4 free weeks of camp, a $50 coupon off her next membership fees and the ability to earn another 4 free weeks of camp.

    Congratulations, Free!!

    Here is what Free wrote yesterday after we all gushed about how great she is doing and looks! We were talking about the power of her Rawk Starz Diva challenge group:

    When I reached about 20 pounds, I spent some time reading Michelle’s logs and others, and it hit me . . . wait, I could do this too!!  I was so challenged, inspired, and motivated to go and get it for myself.  I am only competing with myself . . . and we all have the same goal.  I have had some zero weight losses, but I learned from those who have been here longer than me that it’s normal and just to move on, so I didn’t think any more about it.  So much of this is in our head and we have to be willing to move ourselves to act and feel beyond what has been normal for us in the fat brain world.  But I keep coming back here for the support–I remember Carlene describing one time that she used to take individual clients, but they would not succeed like us in the group.  And I can believe it.  Carlene, you are amazing, but you know that we need everyone here to make this work.  So thankful that we have this group!!!

  • JanBree’s Unbelievable 70 lbs Gone Before and Afters October 16, 2014

    JanBree’s Unbelievable 70 lbs Gone Before and Afters

    I know you will be blown away by these before and afters as much as I was.  Jan had two things that slowed down her loss this past month and a half. High stress and an injury. September’s weight loss was agonizingly slow, but being the diva she is, she kept to her program and even found ways to get in her exercise without causing any more injuries. Everyone at camp was inspired by her patience and perseverance, and as you can see by her photos. It paid off. 

    She now seems back on track to hit goal in the next month and a half and join our Maintainer’s group well before the end of the year. How cool is that? 70 lbs in 7.5 months. She started with us in February. Joined the Divas in May, I believe, and soon, in well less than a year, she will not have only reached her goal weight, but through her journey with RFBC have changes so much of her thinking about food and the role it plays in her life. She is also the hero in the Rawk Starz Diva challenge for her commitment for early morning exercise before she starts another hectic day.

    JanBrees 70 lb Gone Fast Weight loss with Raw Food Before and Afters

    When I sent Jan her copy of the before and after, I didn’t realize I had sent it to her daughter, her photographer who sent me the photos. Here is what her daughter wrote back to me:

    Wow that’s so amazing! I tell her all the time how proud I am of her! Now she looks like I have always seen her, and I hope she sees it too. Thanks so much for helping my mom get so healthy and provide such a wonderful support group! 

    That made my day! Congrats to JanBree for giving us all hope that if we want something, if we don’t give in when it feels so tough, that it can be ours. She is a true hero at RFBC!

  • Gorgo Celebrates 2 Years of Maintenance at Raw Food Boot Camp September 26, 2014

    Gorgo Celebrates 2 Years of Maintenance at Raw Food Boot Camp

    Okay, we are a month behind on celebrating this. Gorgo just reminded us, that on August 31st, she celebrated 2 years at goal. She is actually 7 pounds above goal right now. But with having lost 61 lbs to get there, it is a very doable place to be. Gorgo is a current member at Raw Food Boot Camp working with both our Maintainers and our Over Weight group. Through these two years she has been in and out of camp. Whenever she felt she was getting a little too slippery with her food, she’d come back for a dose of RFBC, and get it all under control. We love having her.

    Here is her original 61 lbs in 4.5 months and at Goal before and afters from two years ago!

    Gorgos Goal Fast Weight Loss with a Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

  • Foteen at Goal! September 18, 2014

    Foteen at Goal!

    FoteenGoalScaleFoteen took the longer road to goal. She decided early on that getting to goal was more important than running toward it. She has gone between our 100% raw diet and our Wholy Rawkers 50%raw diet. Has she been perfect? Nope. Has she been determined? You bet. She even took off 6 weeks for a European Vacation, and maintained her weight. We were all so impressed.

    By going slower, she has fought off most of her bad food behaviors and habits. She is starting maintenance today by upping her calories, just to 1400. Adding back in some foods she missed that stall weight loss like bananas and chickpeas, and bringing her exercise down to 75-90 minutes a day. This will be changing over the course of the next couple of months as we work toward finding her perfect maintenance diet and calories. She will likely loose another 5 pounds or so during this transition process.

    So here are the stats: 

    Foteen is 63 Years Old and 5 foot 3.

    She started RFBC on Jan 13, 2014 at 210 lbs.

    8 Months later with 66 lbs gone, she weighs 144 lbs.

    The photo of her in the red dress is beautiful. I can’t show you her face, but she doesn’t look 60, that’s for sure. She showed it to the women in camp, and boy they were impressed. She glows!

    FoteenCollageGoalPublic

    As you may notice, there was a discernable crook in her back in the before photo which seems completely gone in her after photo. I asked her about this. She said that she has a slight scoliosis in her upper back and a problem with lumbar spondylolisthesis (mis alignment of L 3-4). She said she would get pain and numbness in her left leg due to the lower back problem, but now IT’S GONE! She called her new alignment amazing. 

    In full disclosure, a couple of months ago, she started taking a restorative yoga class, so how much of this was from the yoga, versus the exercise that she did as she lost the weight, and how much losing the weight had to do it, is up for discussion. Either way, it is amazing.

    Today in our discussion thread, which was all about her hitting goal. I asked her to share some insight. Here is what she said. Below this is a list of inches lost.  Oh, and on the dress on her treadmill wall? It didn’t fit right. It fit, but she made it years ago when her son was born, and things shifted too much since then, so she choose to be our lady in red!

    Here’s what she had to say:

    Wearing the imaginary crown and sash today!

    First of all, I LOVE this group, especially the group we have now…….the most real and motivated and inspirational bunch of women. You are present in my photos. I am reflecting you as much as me. Thank you again and again.

    I ran the gamut of all of Carlene’s diets. I chose Wholly Rawker because if I couldn’t do raw, I wasn’t failing and didn’t feel guilty. I love the way I feel when I eat 100% raw MOST of the time but some days I really needed beans or an egg. It worked for me to patchwork the plans.

    The two things that come to mind as the biggest keys to success (when I look at what lead me down the path to my highest weight ever) are the curfew and daily exercise. I was a secret night time eater. My husband goes to bed early and I often stay up very late watching television. I would have a snack then another then another.. Bad bad terrible mindless habit. The curfew simplifies my night…..easy…..no food. If I want something, it’s a cup of tea or a glass of ice water. Simple. The second is exercise. I love to race walk I used to compete 15 years ago and now I’m back in competition. I love my DVR – treadmill lady cave. I can watch old movies and comedy shows endlessly. It’s all about finding your groove. Some people have to go to a gym, some have to have nature. Figure this important key out and it is a big part of the battle. Don’t fight with the exercise just find out what works for YOU. 

    I plan to maintain at this weight for 3-6 months then possibly attempt to get down to 135. I am only 5’3″ so right now I am still not quite in the “normal” BMI but I am really comfortable at this weight and since I chose it at the beginning, I decided to stick with it. It feels great to be just a “little” overweight. 

    Thanks for all of your accolades. I feel like Queen for a Day (only people my age would remember that TV show)! Really , two days, because Carlene was waxing poetic yesterday, too. 

    Looking forward to the next Goal marker and big milestone!

    Here are her inches lost:

    Neck : 0.75 inches

    Under arms : 8.5

    Chest :6.5

    Under chest : 8

    2″ above belly button: 10

    Belly button: 7

    2″ below belly button: 12

     

    Left upper arm: 3                        Right upper arm: 2.5

    Above elbow:2.75.                         :2.5

    Forearm:1                                       :0.75

    Wrist: 0.25.                                      :0.25

    Upper thigh: 5.25.                           :5

    Above knee: 3.                                :3.5

    Calf:2.                                              :2

    Ankle: 0.75.                                      :0.75

What We Are Working On

  • Holidays are Here!

    The Holidays are here!

    Throughout November and December our focus is on surviving the holidays. Between actual holidays, all those weekend parties, office goodies, and baking grandmas, no wonder most gain 10-15 lbs over the holidays.

    At camp, we have found ways to get through the holidays unscathed. Okay, maybe for some, the weight loss slows, but for others, they forge through as if there wasn’t so much as a cinnamon spiced waft in the air.

    Then there is the depression some go through over the holidays. Not everyone loves the holidays. So we have plans in place to help get through the dark times as well.

    Some suffer Seasonal Affective Disorder. We have methods to lighten that up for everyone.

    Most have to deal with family and friends who think our diet is extreme and any diet during the holidays is insane. We have ways to work with them as well. 

    The biggest problem everyone has to face during the holidays is themselves! We recognize this and work hard to prevent self- sabotage moments and to remind everyone that it is our right to be healthy, it is our responsibility to take charge of what goes in our mouth and when. We don’t have to apologize to anyone for going after a healthy life even during the holidays.

    If your goal for this holiday season is to lose weight or even to maintain weight. Come do it with us. We’ve had a lot of practice making it through the holidays, chin held high, and fearless as we enter the new year.

    The coolest thing is that come Jan 1st, our members are not setting those age old resolutions that this will be the year they shed the fat suit and put their health before food. Our members are already there!
