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

     Jenna hit 25 lbs gone in 6 weeks doing our Wholy Rawkers diet. That is great for this diet. Right on track with where she should be. She was very excited about her before and afters and seeing such a big change in her body. And she loved the excitement of the ladies at RFBC and how they gushed over her achievement. She is motivated even more to get the rest of the weight off and be on our RFBC Success stories.

    Pogo’s 60 lbs Gone in 15 Weeks Before and Afters

    Pogo is a fixture at camp. She’s our go to for smoothie spice combinations, and keeps her conversation group hopping. She is working on beating emotional eating and gets further along the way each week. This weekend she made a decision to push for extra loss, and she was a woman not to be beaten. We were all very proud of her.

    Weekend used to be her biggest downfall, now she’s seeing them as her time to be POP and beyond!

    Pogos 60 lbs Gone Fast Weight loss with a Raw Food Diet

    I told her for her 70 lb photos she’s going to need smaller pants! I also made her a collage where her 50 lb photos were next to her 60 lb view. There was a huge difference. I’m telling you, it’s the walking. 

    By the way, she hasn’t been this weigh since her 20′s! How cool is that?

  • SunnyB’s 60 lbs Gone in 2 Months Before And Afters December 17, 2014

    SunnyB’s 60 lbs Gone in 2 Months Before And Afters

    Actually, she was 4 days shy of the 2 month mark when she hit 63 lbs gone!! That was after coming back from a cruise and still on vacation.  Sunny has been a Rawk Starz Diva all the way. All that time away and she stayed POP (perfect on plan) the whole time. Now while 60 lbs in 2 months is way beyond what we expect, it is well deserved. Attitude is the most important  thing here at camp, and SunnyB is at the top of her game. 

    Sunny is 5 foot 11 inches tall.  She is going to look good really quick. Already, we were all excited to see the changes being made to her body, but my most favorite is her smile. One of the ladies at camp called it confident. I agree. She knows she found the right place, diet, exercise, and new friends to take her all the way to goal. 

     

    SunnyB 60 lbs fast weight loss with a raw food diet before and afters

    Join the SunnyB fan club. She’s going for two 100 lb challenges. And we are with her all the way!! Keep your eye on her, she is going to change a lot of minds of what is possible if you’re willing to do the work.

    Michelle Wins Challenge with a Raw Food Diet
     
    The last picture in Michelle’s Before and After is her holding her $500 Visa Card, still in it’s holder, and wearing her Pre-RFBC Jeans! Okay, you’ve got to be impressed. Here’s something funny, when I received the photo, it was super large and I had to scroll through it. I was scrolling down. At first I thought, wow, she tucked her shirt in, cool. Those are baggy jeans, and then I scrolled down, and saw the inside of her leg, I thought, hmmm, I thought she had these lomg lean legs. Then I got to her feet and cracked up when I realized she had both legs in one!! Awesome photo, Michelle.
     
    Michelle’s daughter sent me the before photos from her cell phone. I wrote her back when I sent the collage and asked what she thought of her beautiful mom and if she was afraid of losing her wardrobe. Here’s what she wrote back:
     
    Oh I am definitely proud of her. She is so gorgeous, I am ecstatic! And yes, hopefully she won’t steal my whole closet
    haha. 
     
    A daughter calling her mom gorgeous. How cool is that!

    Michelle Wins 100 lbs in 7 Month’s Challenge

    Click here to learn more about our 100 lbs in 7 Month’s Challenge

    Actually, it was 108 lbs in 7 months. Here is what I wrote in our Friday thread:

    Hi everyone. This is the big day. Michelle’s big day. She has been at RFBC for exactly 7 months and has lost her 100 lbs. I put her $500 Visa card in the mail yesterday. As of today, she is 128 lbs. Her goal weight is 125. What a transformation. She told me yesterday the greatest thing she has gotten from this journey is self esteem. That is a powerful gift. A gift she gave herself. We have been her guide, her strength at times, her humor at others, but in the end it came down to her absolute desire to change. There was never a doubt there. 

     
    I know that she will tell you that her Rawk Starz Diva group, her other family, was instrumental in getting her here. She believes in the power of our challenge threads, she has been teacher and student in her group. Every day, she and her diva family have come to camp, they have shared their ups their downs with one another, they have laughed together and held each other through some tough times. Most importantly they have committed to one another and held up that commitment to be there daily, to stay on their program, to be accountable and expect their teammates to do the same.
     
    It worked. 
     
    For each of you, I wish that same sense of camaraderie Michelle found, I wish you that same sense of determination she used to say no to cravings, emotions, and nay sayers. I wish that you would believe in yourself and your ability to do this the way that she has. So you too can find your success.
     
    This summer, Michelle told her family it was the Summer of Mommy, that she was going to put what she was doing here as a top priority. Her family wasn’t neglected, they didn’t fall apart or feel unloved. They watched her and were proud. Right now her daughter is working out with her each day to tone up her muscles, her husband when hearing she was going to use her winnings for her kayak, said, no, I’ll get you that, you go buy yourself clothes. That is not a family who resented her journey, but one that sat back in awe. Maybe today she’ll tell you her secret, but I believe it was because they saw from the start that she was serious, that she meant this. She didn’t vacillate. Do I want this. Do I want the old food. No. She just wanted this and made it happen.
     
    I know not everyone can be as steadfast as Michelle, but wait. Menza, JanBree, KaCastro and Free, her diva teammates are. She’s the first to cross the threshold, the others are close behind. How? Because they too want this. They have been just as steadfast, just as determined, and worked just as hard. Maybe they didn’t win a Visa card, but they have won everything else. Why? Because like their teammate, they want this and they have been hell bent on getting it. 
     
    So today, ask yourself: How bad do I want this? You don’t have to walk 2 hours a day. You don’t have to do the Rawk Starz diet, you just have to want this and want it bad. No more excuses, no more fat brain lies. When in doubt about yourself, ask yourself what would Michelle do, what would Menza do, what would JanBree do and KaCastro and Free. Then follow in their footsteps to find your own success. 
     
    Michelle, you already know, but let me say it again. I am so proud of you. And I am grateful for the gift you have brought RFBC and all that follow us by winning this challenge and showing the world what can be done with a healthy diet and walking. Thank you.
     

    Here is what Michelle wrote:

    Oh my Gosh! I’m so touched by Carlene and everyone’s elses comments. Thank you so much! 

    When I first joined RFBC I made a vow to myself that I would NEVER let myself down again no matter what. That was a pact with everything in my life not just weight loss. I truly have become a different person, okay maybe not a different person, but a better version of my former self. 

    None of us can go back and rewrite our books from the beginning, but we ALL have the power to change the ending of our books. Everyone of us that have joined RFBC have gotten sick of reading the same chapter over and over…now is the time to start new more exciting chapters in our lives.

    I went to see my favorite band last night and when they played last year I did not want to go because I was too self conscience of what I looked like, I didn’t have anything to wear, what if he looked at me , what if I couldn’t stand that long, I wouldn’t be able to find a place to sit, blah blah blah…
    THIS year I went, this time I squeezed my way to the front, this year he looked into my eyes and I didn’t look away in shame..I looked back and I belted out the song and I was proud and happy and I was LIVING LIFE!! 

    We cannot let our weight or our addiction to food control our lives and dictate who we are. We need to stand up and take charge and remember the old saying JUST SAY NO! Just say NO to our fat brains when we might want something to eat that will take away our self esteem and our right to fun and life. We need to choose to live in the game and not sit on the sidelines anymore. The only way we are going to get what we want is to leave the past in the past and lace up a new set of shoestrings. The only way is to JUST DO IT! We can all do this..we just have to want out of our fat suits enough to do what we know needs to be done…

    Thank you again! I would not have been able to do this on my own. I will forever be grateful to Carlene for starting RFBC and for all the coaching and support and just all around awesomeness that makes her be her. Also, like she said my Diva family which I love each and everyone dearly. They have been my friends, my rocks, my support, and my push and drive on days I may not have been 100% gung ho to get this done. 

    Some of you have formed some strong bonds like we have and I know that will help take you far!

    Of course having Foteen, GreenQueen, and Otavia being successful and so supportive has been such an awesome thing to have in my life as well. 

    Together will will all be successful, like I tell my kids when they don’t want to do something…suck it up buttercup and do what needs to be done. Of course I also sing the Rolling Stones song, You can’t always get what you want, but in this case WE CAN GET WHAT WE WANT…we just need to want it bad enough… I KNOW I do!!

  • Tess Hits 50 lbs Gone! December 11, 2014

    Tess Hits 50 lbs Gone!

    Woo Hoo! Tess hit 50 lbs gone this morning. We are all so proud of her. She started with us in February, lost about 20 lbs, left, kept most of it off, then came back to us. Now she is one of our fan favorite members, always ready to help others. 

    Tess does our Wholy Rawker diet with an average of 45 minutes of walking a day. Has she been perfect? No. But she never gives up on us or herself. And look what it’s done for her. She is beautiful and her 50 lbs gone shows everywhere!

    We’ll call her pretty in pink!

  • Lilli’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters December 11, 2014

    Lilli’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters

    Wow, what a difference 25 lbs can make. Lilli is one of our Wholy Rawkers doing on average 1 hour of walking a day. This isn’t easy for her, she’s from Norway and while she can read and write English it takes her a while to translate everything on her own. We’ve been very impressed with how well she does. She doesn’t shy away from our conversations and has become a true asset to our team.

    Give her big kudos for her first 25 lbs gone. It’s not going to take long for her to get to goal!

    IslandGirl’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters

    IslandGirl is from the Caymen Islands. Life is much different there, the fruits are different, but the desire to be slim and healthy is always the same. 

    There are her first 25 lbs gone before and afters. her goal ones will follow soon, I’m sure. For those in our Over Weight side of camp, goal come fast, but the struggle are the same, the lessons needed to learn are the same. Maintenance is the same. These women work as hard, just not for as long, so we give them the homage they deserve and celebrate their victories with as much enthusiasm and pride as we do those on our obese side of camp.

    IslandGirl hit 25 lbs on her 2 month anniversary, had a little fall, got back up and at 2.5 months is all the way here! She’s about done, now for the hard part, making the things she’s learning at camp stick so she is this thin for life!

    Free’s 70 lbs Gone in 16 Weeks Before and Afters

    Free is following in Michelle’s, footsteps. She has been on plan since the day she started and has kept to it through these past 16 weeks. Tonight when she sent me her before and afters, she said she actually hit 71 lbs gone by Sunday night. Way to go, Free.

    That sweater she’s wearing is a medium. Now that feels great. Smaller clothes make such a huge difference in how we feel about ourselves. Big time kudos, Free.

    Free is a 100 lb in 7 month challenger. She’s got 3 months and 30 pounds to go. For her that’s easy peasy!

    KaCastro Hits 60 lbs Gone in 4.25 Months

    KaCastro is one of our Rawk Starz Divas. She is one busy woman, always traveling for her job, living out of suitcases and bags of produce. Since she joined, I swear she is gone traveling more than she’s home, but still. She is always at camp. She brings her food with her, she stays prepared and always finds a way to get in her 2 hours of walking a day. Her steadfastness to this program is truly inspiring. 

    No More Seat Belt Extender

    Today, when she hit 60 lbs gone, while traveling, she told me that she went shopping this weekend and that her brain hasn’t caught up with her body. She was looking at 1X sizes. Everything was really big. She’s a solid 14 in shirts and 16 in pants, but her brain looks at them and thinks “no way! That’s too small!” And then, it’s not!

    One of the hardest things for travelers when obese are the airplane seat belts. It is so hard to ask for a seat belt extender. I believe, KaCastro brought her own. Then a strange thing happened. She didn’t need one, and as you can see in this photo there was an extra 9 inches, maybe a foot, of extra belt she didn’t need. Now that, for many, is a huge milestone!

    CJaneRun is one of our up and coming Rawk Starz Divas. She drop these first 25 lbs in 4 weeks, 2 days and is on her way to officially making it into our 100 lb Challenge and winning our 50 lb challenge.

    CJaneRun came to camp and at first was a little discouraged with how fast the weight was dropping, but now that she has done what so many hope to do, she is feeling pretty good about things. Although one of our newest members, she is a strong voice at camp and works closely with our other new Rawk Starz Divas so they all stay on track and reach their goals.

    Krinkels Goal Before and Afters

    Right when Krinkels hit her goal weight, like a month ago, she hurt her back, so we have postponed posting her before and afters, but here they are. Krinkels was our first new OverWeight member to hit goal with 31 pounds gone. We are all very proud of her, not just for hitting goal, but while dealing with a very painful back situation, she did not run back to food, she kept to her plan and maintained her loss, and as of last Friday had lost that extra pound putting her in the 140′s. For her height, you know that’s awesome!

    Congratulations Krinkels. You are a real asset to our Overweight team at camp!

    Click here to see her Journey page and all of her before and afters

    Well, again, I have put you in a place where you have to trust me. For those who have been watching Menza lose her weight, you know how well she’s done. For others, you’ll need to go to her journey page and see all of her before and afters so you are convinced. For her hundred pound before and afters we are working to show her face. Unfortunately, her start photos were a little messed up, so we may do some cut and paste! 

    Menza is one of our Rawk Starz Divas. She is the mother of five, the oldest is 24. Next time when you see her face, you won’t believe she could have a 24 year old son. That’s the thing about all three of our current top divas. They look so healthy and fit. So many are afraid of our diet. I think the proof is in these wonderful, determined women. Fruits, veggies, hemp, greens and walking. 

    Oh, I forgot to say, Menza lost her 90 lbs in a little less than 9 months. 

    Menzas 90 lbs gone fast weight loss with raw food diet

    I wrote Menza back this evening and asked where she thinks she can lose more weight. Her tummy is flat, her waist is slim. She is beautiful. I think it’s time to start transitioning to maintenance. Don’t you agree?

    Erica is here to get this done. This is her first before and after on her journey to win the 50 lb challenges.  She’s got what it takes to do this. She started camp ready to go. Rawk Starz diet and 2 hours of walking. Only 4 weeks in and she’s already seen as a rock and leader by the rest of our new Rawk Starz Diva team. We’re taking her all the way to goal!

    Click here to see her Journey page and all of her before and afters

    Okay, I know. You don’t believe me. You think I’m trying to pull something over on you. There is no way these two women are the same. I promise. I give you my word. Hmmm, not enough, huh? I get it. I’m a diet coach, I must be telling a tall one. But, look. Look on the two front views. Look at her hands, they are held in the exact same manner. It’s her!! JanBree. Same woman, 80 lbs less. Amazing, isn’t it. 

    The other day when Jan sent in her photos, she knew. She told the other divas that she was going to show everyone the pot of gold. So many obese women have no hope, no true belief that their lives can change. They think they are stuck. But, look. Look at JanBree. Stuck versus free! 

    I am so touched by these photos. I know her transformation is going to inspire so many. She is going to be what obese women think of when they go home tonight, when they look in the mirror tomorrow. When they feel down and beaten by their weight, they are going to remember her smile, her glow, her style, her transformation. They are going to wonder, could that really happen for me. 

    I’m telling you here and now, it can. It takes work, hard work. JanBree was not the fastest losing Diva. She had to watch Michelle fly past her in loses each week. She had to go days with no loss, but she never gave up, she never lost heart. She persevered, and here she is 9.5 months not just a few pounds from goal, which she is, but beautiful, and not just on the outside. 

    Okay, I’ve been sappy long enough. Here are JanBree’s 80 lb gone before and afters! Be amazed.

  • Polly’s 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks Before and Afters November 26, 2014

    Polly’s 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks Before and Afters

     Okay, so here is the thing about Polly. She’s doing our Wholy Rawkers diet!! I know, I know, 40 lbs in 7 Weeks! That’s crazy on a half raw diet.  Yes, we work with calories. 1200 calories a day, but it seems our 1200 Rawk Starz calories give faster loss than 1200 calories with cooked food. Whether you want to believe this or not, 9 years of testing has proven to us that not all calories are burned the same. Then comes Polly, and throws all that data to the wind and surpasses even our Rawk Starz expectations. 

    Her Wholy Rawker diet is spot on, her walking always there. She has been perfect to her plan since day one. She has no doubts she wants this, no doubts she can do this. She came, and she will conquer. 

    Polly is a shiny voice in our conversation threads.  I think even she is in awe of her great success. When she joined, she knew she would do the Wholy Rawker diet, so didn’t sign up for the 50 lb Challenge. After she graciously offered to show her face to give you our readers another opportunity to watch her journey, I offered her the challenge, and she is taking it.

    Polly 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks with a Raw Food Diet Before and Afters

    Polly will hit 50 lbs gone long before the 12 weeks it takes to win the challenge. Everyone at camp is watching her and feeling inspired and motivated to stay to their plan regardless if it’s the Rawk Starz, Butt Kicker or Wholy Rawker plan. She is living proof. Trust the process, do the work, and reap the rewards.

    Great job, Polly.

    Huppicke’s 40 lbs Gone in 3 Months Before and Afters

    Huppicke hit 40 lbs gone Monday morning. We are all so excited for her. She’s had some challenges this past month; party after party, it seemed. Each time before the event, she was scared, scared of her own ability to survive the event. She would write to me all nervous, sure the event was beyond her, and then the morning after, she would come back and say, it was hard, she was tempted, but she made it. She always made it. 

    I told her this morning, she’s my hero. Her insecurities about her ability to do this, and whether or not she deserves to have this wonderful change in her life seem so daunting, but with a little hand holding, she stands firm, against herself. And as all of you know, we are our worst enemies when it comes to succeeding with weight loss. 

     Huppicke's 40 lbs Gone Fast Weight Loss Before and Afters

    Not only does Huppicke support herself, but she is a strong, supportive member of our team. She is a bright spot for everyone, and we all love having her at camp. 

    Huppicke is from Germany. Special thanks, Huppicke, for supporting our newest European from Hungary who does not speak, read or write English. Huppicke went out of her way to ensure Rincike felt welcome and found her way around camp from a peer point of view.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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

     

     

  • 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!

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!

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.
