hCG DietAs the Holidays approach, maintaining your ideal weight can seem like an unattainable task–especially whenthe weather seems to cold to workout and Holiday foods are irresistible. Fortunately, North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic has the key to maintaining the extra pounds away. Find out how a healthy diet, exercise and the increasingly popular hCG diet can help you accomplish your weight loss goals.


Cold weather can make outdoor workouts seem unattractive, but exercising is one of the best ways to stay in shape throughout the year. We recommend to workout at least three times each week and to always include both cardio and resistance training exercises in order to improve endurance and strength.

HCG Diet

This increasingly popular weight loss solution has helped many individuals achieve their weight goals. The hCG hormone works by stimulating the body to mobilize and burn excess fat cells for energy while the body is following a very low-calorie diet. However, similarly to many other diets, it takes effort and commitment to get results and maintain them.


Balanced meals are a great way to keep extra pounds away. Control your portions, ensure your meals provide you with the right amount of nutrients, and don’t skip meals.

Some of the best foods for weight loss include:

  • Black Beans: They contain 15 grams of protein and no saturated fats.
  • Salmon: Salmon is a lean source of protein which can help you feel full without adding fats.
  • Brown Rice: A half-cup serving of brown rice contains almost 2 grams of resistant starch. This healthy carbohydrate can help boost metabolism and burn fat.
  • Grapefruit: This fruit is a great source of protein and contains a compound that can lower insulin–a fat-storage hormone.


Hydrating helps boost brain functions, maintains the balance of bodily fluids and lowers the risk of health conditions. While water doesn’t help you lose weight, it is a great substitute to higher calorie beverages and can keep your digestive system flowing which helps boost metabolism and inhibit hunger.
