Sandra Heuer is getting a check up at her doctor's office.   But not the typical type.   No blood pressure or temperature taken here.  Instead, she heads right for the scale. Sandra is on a doctor supervised weight loss program at Dr. Louis Bonaldi's office.   It's based on the paleo lifestyle. Kelsey Heuer is a weight loss nurse. "Basically, paleo is playing off the paleolithic style of eating.   Hunting and gathering.   So any meats, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados, that's all OK.  That means things like steak, eggs and bacon. Strawberries, raspberries and almond butter.   Red wine even makes the list.  Sandra says it was easy to start this lifestyle change.   And it gets easier every day. "As you progress through it you don't want the stuff that you can't have anymore."

Stuff like pasta, bread, corn and dairy and anything processed. Sandra went from 170 pounds  to 139.  She got weekly b-B2 lipo shots and clients can also get an appetite suppressant. Although Dr. Bonaldi says you shouldn't be hungry while eating paleo because calorie counting   isn't really a part of it. "I like the paleo diet basically because it's something you can live with.   You learn to change your lifestyle, eating habits, you learn great substitutes for things that aren't healthy for you."

And this program is available to clients like Sandra who's at her goal weight to stay on track. "Basically what you want to do from here on out is keep following the program.   Come in to visit with us 1 or 2 times a month just to check in.   The accountability is really big."

This weight loss program is available at Dr. Louis Bonaldi's office, Center for Plastic Surgery.  For more information, go to www.bonaldimd.com or call 775-828-7400.
