HCG is the most exciting development in medical weight loss! H-C-G stands for Human Chorionic Gonadatropin. This natural hormone helps you burn stored fat which creates rapid weight loss. It also targets the fat that tends to accumulate around the waist and stomach, allowing you to lose inches while you lose weight!

People who have struggled with a slow metabolism, hormone imbalance, menopause, or even those last few annoying 10 pounds, are finally losing weight and they are losing it fast! HCG activates the hypothalamus gland and causes your body to use your stored fat for energy, similar to the way your body uses calories you eat for energy. This medication is taken once daily and it is done in conjunction with a low-calorie diet.

Windsor Work Care offers only medical grade HCG, as well as the only patented HCG available. We only offer our patients the HCG shots. HCG has virtually no side effects and, typically, between HCG and the diet, our patients will lose an average of 18 to 30 pounds per month!


Questions frequently asked about the HCG Diet

Below, we have done our best to outline some of the most frequent questions we hear about HCG, along with some general answers. Should you have any questions that aren’t answered here or would like to speak to a knowledgeable member of our staff, please do not hesitate to contact us.

What is HCG and who can use it? 

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, in lay language, is a natural hormone that is produced during a women’s pregnancy. HCG can be used safely in both men and women. Always check with your doctor or physician before beginning any new weight loss program. Also, do NOT use hCG if you are pregnant or nursing or Type 1 Diabetic.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Weight loss varies but patients typically lose an average of a pound a day.

Will I feel hungry while on HCG?

No, because HCG is mobilizing your stored fat, your body will be constantly fed by the broken down fat. Most people report a feeling of being satisfied even though their actual food intake is only 500 calories.

Can I exercise while on HCG?

Yes and No. You are allowed a maximum of 20 minutes of walking per day. If you burn too many calories, it will put your body into a starvation mode, causing you to keep and hold onto stored fat that you are wanting to lose.

Wouldn’t I lose a pound a day without HCG if I was eating only 500 calories?

If you attempted to lose weight by only eating 500 calories it would eventually backfire because your body would think that you were starving and would begin storing additional fat. You would also burn valuable muscle, which you otherwise wouldn’t on the HCG diet.

How can I only survive on 500 calories a day?

HCG releases 1500 to 4000 calories (from your stored fat) with the additional 500 calories that you are eating which is equal to a 2000 to 4000 calorie diet which is why people do not feel hungry while on the HCG diet. This is partly why you are not allowed to exercise, because you would be burning too many calories, too quickly.

Is it healthy to lose a pound a day with HCG?

Yes, while losing a pound daily without the use of HCG would be difficult, the HCG hormone changes this. When dieting without HCG you lose “structural” fat and muscle. HCG allows your body to only burn “stored” fat.

Will I regain my lost pounds?

Statistics show that once “stored” fat is lost, it does not return if Phase 2 is followed, and a healthy diet is maintained.

Is Oral HCG as effective as Injectable HCG?

Oral HCG will not enter you blood system in the same way as injectable HCG. Also, a lot of oral hCG is homeopathic, meaning it is not prescription strength, and has often been known to contain little or even noHCG at all. All-natural HCG must be prescribed by a physician, and is illegal to be sold over the counter.
