The Maggi Diet is a protein diet. Her "lover" is believed to be Margaret Thatcher, for whom she was developed by the best American nutritionists. According to the "iron lady" herself, it was this nutritional option that helped her keep her figure in perfect shape for many years, hence, in fact, the name of the diet: Margaret's shortened name.
Of course, over time, the diet was changing due to the fact that many products were available, which in the Baroness' youth years could not be found by ordinary people. The most important condition for successful weight loss at Maggi is strict adherence to the menu: you can exclude this or that product, but you cannot change them.
This diet is also called "egg" because people who follow it eat a lot of eggs, but it contains many other protein foods. Thatcher herself said that she eats about thirty chicken eggs a week. In my opinion, this is a lot, so we will not go to extremes and balance the letter so that none of the recommended products cause disgust.
Its effectiveness in reducing "stressful" carbohydrates, in which, however, we will not starve, because it is pleasant to eat fruits, meats, dairy products.
Another secret of the diet described is that meals are takenat the same time every day, regardless of whether it is a day off or a weekday. If you sit down to breakfast five days a week, say, nine in the morning, stick with this the rest of the days. The amount consumed is exactly the same as indicated on the menu. Nothing complicated here: no calorie counting, no hunger strike. But determination and perseverance are not superfluous here.
Contraindications of the Maggi diet
- Gastrointestinal diseases.
- Pressure too low or too high.
- During pregnancy, nursing mothers.
- Allergic people, as long as the allergen is present in one of the recommended foods: either eggs, citrus fruits or cow protein.
If there is a "crash" then you need to start the diet again.
As with any other diet, I recommend exercising in the gym and taking long walks, drinking lots of water: this is necessary to tone your muscles, speed up your metabolism, and thus you will not only get rid of the fat that hasboring, but also you will become the owner of a sports figure and strong immunity.
The starting weight plays a very important role: the more extra kilos, the more they will spend each week. And vice versa: if you want to lose about 5 kilograms, then it will take between two and three weeks, but the weight loss will not become abrupt and dangerous for your health, and thanks to its gradual decrease and regular sports activities, you will not have "extra"skin that sometimes looks even less aesthetically pleasing than excess oil.
According to reviews of people who endured to the end of "Maggi" for a month (with a high starting weight), you can get rid of fifteen or even twenty kilograms. Since this is considered a very dramatic weight loss, I advise you to go on the diet once a year, for example, to lose weight for the summer. Competent "departure" from any diet is also very important: if after a while you return to your previous sedentary lifestyle and improper diet, then your kilograms will return and you will "bring friends with you. "If you stick to a few simple "go-out" rules, the weight will not only not come back, but it will also drop a bit more.
So, the departure from the Maggi diet:
- One of the options, he is the best, the most effective and correct, is to go directly to the proper nutrition. Comply with all rules and regulations. Then you can forget about excess weight forever.
- The second optionis to continue using the foods you ate during the diet. One or more doesn't matter. For example, you can continue to eat grapefruit, tangerines, cottage cheese. For at least a couple more weeks, put them on your menu and the weight will stay at the same level.
- And the third option:begin to adhere to the diet according to the weight loss system "Minus 60". But for the next fourteen days after our weight loss marathon, you will have to limit yourself to the use of sweets and harmfulness.
Let me remind you that, of course, alcohol must becompletely eliminated.
This diet belongs to the "chemical": a certain combination of foods causes the formation of chemical processes in the body that actively burn available fat.
We completely exclude from the menu all baked goods, pasta, cereals, potatoes; These are carbohydrates, they will not allow the body to start using fat. Of course, we exclude fatty meat.
Here is a menu for one month, which is compiled based on personal experience, in twenty-eight days I lost 9 kilograms, even though I am not much overweight. Buy a kitchen scale and do not deviate from the mass of the finished dish indicated by me. If weight is not on the menu, then food can be consumed in any quantity.

You should also completely eliminate cereals and pasta.
Do not forget that you cannot drink water or tea during meals, this must be done between meals, without adding sugar, honey and other sweets. You can substitute the sugar.
Baked fishin the oven is an excellent cooking option for those who follow a diet, especially protein. To do this, you just need to peel, wash, salt and wrap in foil. Bake for forty minutes to an hour, depending on the size of your fish. Lemon juice can be added if desired.
Chicken breastTo cook even faster and easier: beat well with a hammer and fry in a dry skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Vegetablescan only be boiled in water. Also, for each meal, choosing only one type. Cut the zucchini into cubes, add salt, a little of the pepper mixture and put on the fire. You can slightly diversify the flavor with fresh herbs.
Fruit saladLet us pamper ourselves on days when it is not indicated that you can only eat citrus fruits: cut a pear, an apple into cubes, divide the mandarin into slices, add seasonal melon, season everythingwith lemon juice. . .
Meatcooks best if it is beef. And bake if it's pork. Since beef is tough and dry, and pork, even its lean parts, is softer. Rub the pork chop with the salt and pepper mixture and fry in an oil-free skillet. Or roast in foil in the oven.
The diet is very effective, you just want to lose weight and strictly follow the rules.
