The Maggi Diet refers to protein diets. It is believed that her "lady" is 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: the abbreviated name of Margaret.
Of course, over time, the diet changed due to the fact that many products became available, which in the years of Baroness's youth 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 from it, but you can not change them.
This diet is otherwise called "eggs" because people who follow it eat a lot of eggs, but there are many other protein foods in it. Thatcher himself said he eats about thirty chicken eggs a week. In my opinion, this is too much, so we will not go to extremes and balance the menu so that none of the recommended products are disgusting.
Its effectiveness in "stressful" reduction of carbohydrates, in which, however, we will not starve, because it is pleasant to eat fruits, meat, dairy products.
Another secret of the prescribed diet is that meals are takenstrictly at the same time every day, whether it is a day off or a day of the week. If you sit in the morning five days a week, say, at nine in the morning, then stay in this for the other days. The amount eaten is exactly the same as what is shown on the menu. Nothing complicated here: no calorie counting, no hunger strike. But dedication and perseverance are not superfluous here.
Contraindications to the Maggi diet
- Gastrointestinal diseases.
- Pressure too low or too high.
- During pregnancy, breastfeeding mothers.
- Allergists, provided the allergen is present in one of the recommended foods: be it eggs, citrus fruits or cow protein.
If there is a "breakdown" then you need to start the diet again. As with any diet, I recommend exercising in the gym and taking long walks, drinking plenty of water: this is necessary to tone the muscles, speed up the metabolism and then not only that. you will get rid of the fat that has bothered you, you will become the owner of a sporty figure and strong immunity.
Initial weight plays a big role: the more extra pounds, the more they will go on each week. And vice versa: if you want to lose about 5 pounds, then it will take about two to three weeks, but weight loss will not become immediate and dangerous to your health, and thanks to gradual reduction and regular sports activities, noyou will have "extra" skin, which, at times, looks even less aesthetically pleasing than excess fat.
According to reviews by people that lasted until the end of "Maggi" for a month (with an initial high weight), you can get rid of fifteen or even twenty pounds. Since this is considered a very dramatic weight loss, I advise you to stay on a diet once a year, for example, in order to lose weight by summer. Competent "exit" from any diet is also very important: if after a while you return to your previous sedentary lifestyle and improper diet, then your pounds will come back and "bring friends with you". If you adhere to some simple "exit" rules, then the weight will not only not return, but will also decrease a little more.
So, the way out of the Maggi diet:
- One of the options, is the best, most effective and accurate - is to go straight to the right food. Adherence to all rules and regulations. Then you can forget about excess weight forever.
- The second optionis to continue using the foods you ate during your diet. One or more - it does not matter. For example, you can continue to eat grapefruit, tangerines, cottage cheese. For at least a few more weeks, include it in your menu and the weight will stay at the same level.
- And the third option:start following a "Minus 60" weight loss system. 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 mustbe completely eliminated.
This diet belongs to the "chemicals": a certain combination of foods provokes the formation of chemical processes in the body that actively burn the 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.
Below I give a menu for a month, which is compiled based on personal experience, for twenty-eight days I lost 9 pounds, despite the fact that I do not have much excess weight. 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.

It was said above about leaving the diet, now more about the nuances of cooking: salt and other natural spices, onions, garlic can be added to dishes.

Allowed vegetables include:zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, peas, eggplants. No potatoes and corn!
Fruit: everything except bananas, grapes, mangoes, dried fruits. We place citrus fruits.
You also need to completely eliminate cereals and pasta.
Remember that you can not drink water or tea during meals, this should be done between meals, without adding sugar, honey and other cakes. You can substitute sugar.
Baked fishin the oven is a great cooking option for those on 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 how big your fish is. Lemon juice can be added if desired.
Chicken breastCook even faster and easier: beat well with a hammer and fry in a dry pan for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Vegetablescan only be cooked in water. Moreover, for each meal, choosing only one type. Cut the zucchini into cubes, add salt, a little pepper mixture and place on the stove. You can slightly diversify the taste with fresh herbs.
Fruit saladpamper yourself in those days when it is not shown that you can only eat citrus: cut a pear, an apple into cubes, cut the mandarin into slices, add melon in season, season all withlemon juice. . .
Meatcooks better if it is beef. And bake if it is pork. Since beef is firm and dry, and pork, even its lean parts, is softer. Rub the chopped pork with the salt and pepper mixture and fry in an oil-free pan. Or bake the noodles in the oven.
Diet is very effective, you just want to lose weight and follow the rules exactly.
