The Maggi diet is a protein diet. Her "mistress" is believed to be Margaret Thatcher, for whom she was developed by the best US 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 the name of the diet: Margaret's abbreviated name.
Of course, the diet changed over time as many products became available that could not be found by ordinary people in the baroness's youth. The most important requirement for successful weight loss at Maggi is strict adherence to the menu: you can exclude this or that product from it, but not change it.
This diet is also called "eggs" because the people who follow it eat a lot of eggs, but there are many other protein foods in it. Thatcher herself said that she eats about thirty chicken eggs a week. In my opinion this is a lot so we don't go to extremes and balance the menu in such a way that none of the recommended products cause disgust.
Its effectiveness in the "stress" reduction of carbohydrates, which does not starve us because it is pleasant to eat fruit, meat, dairy products.
Another secret of the described diet is that meals aretaken at the same time every day, regardless of whether it is a day off or a weekday. If you sit down for breakfast five days a week, say nine in the morning, you stick to it for the rest of the days. The amount consumed corresponds exactly to the amount specified in the menu. Nothing is complicated here: no calorie counting, no hunger strike. However, commitment and perseverance are not superfluous here.
Contraindications to the Maggi diet
- gastrointestinal diseases.
- Pressure too low or too high.
- Mothers breastfeeding during pregnancy.
- Allergy sufferers, provided that the allergen is contained in one of the recommended foods: eggs, citrus fruits or cow protein.
If there is a "breakdown" you have to start the diet again.
As with any other diet, I recommend working out in the gym, taking long walks, and drinking plenty of water. This is necessary to strengthen muscles, accelerate the metabolism, and then not only will you get rid of the fat that bored you, but you will become the owner of a sports figure and strong immunity.
The initial weight plays a big role: the more pounds, the more you will consume for each week. Conversely, if you want to lose about 5 kilograms, it will take about two to three weeks, but weight loss will not become abrupt and dangerous to your health, and thanks to its gradual decrease and regular exercise, you will not have "extra" skin, which sometimeslooks even less aesthetic than excess fat.
According to the reviews of people who held out for a month to the end of "Maggi" (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 recommend that you stick to the diet, for example, once a year to lose weight by the summer. A competent "exit" from any diet is also very important: if after a while you return to your previous sedentary lifestyle and improper diet, your kilograms will return and "bring friends". If you follow some simple "exit" rules, not only will the weight not come back, but it will also decrease a little.
So the way out of the Maggi diet:
- One of the options, it is the best, most effective and correct - it is to go straight to the right diet. Compliance with all rules and regulations. Then you can forget about being overweight forever.
- The second optionis to keep using the foods you ate during the diet. One or more - it doesn't matter. For example, you can continue to eat grapefruits, tangerines, and cottage cheese. Include them in your menu for at least a couple of weeks and the weight will stay at the same level.
- And the third option:start adhering to the diet according to the weight loss system "Minus 60". But for the next fortnight after our weight loss marathon, you need to limit yourself to using candy and harmfulness.
I would like to remind you that alcohol should of coursebe completely eliminated.
This diet belongs to the "chemical": a certain combination of foods provokes the formation of chemical processes in the body that actively burn the available fat.
We are completely excluding all baked goods, pasta, cereal and potatoes from the menu - these are carbohydrates that do not allow the body to use fat. Of course we exclude fatty meat.
In the following I give a menu for a month that is put together on the basis of personal experience. In twenty-eight days, I lost 15 pounds, even though I'm not very overweight. Buy a kitchen scale and do not deviate from the mass of the finished dish I specified. If the weight is not on the menu, any amount of food can be consumed.

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.

Permitted vegetables are:Zucchini, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, beans, peas, eggplants. No potatoes and corn!

You should also completely remove cereals and pasta.
Do not forget that you cannot drink water or tea during meals. This should be done between meals without adding sugar, honey, and other sweets. You can replace sugar.
Baked fishin the oven is an excellent 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 the size of your fish. Lemon juice can be added if desired.
Chicken BreastCook even faster and easier: hit well with a hammer and fry in a dry pan for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Vegetablescan only be boiled in water. In addition, you only choose one type for each meal. Cut the zucchini into cubes, add salt and a little pepper mixture and place on the stove. You can vary the taste slightly with fresh herbs.
Fruit saladWe will indulge ourselves on the days when it is not stated that you can only eat citrus fruits: cut a pear, dice an apple, cut tangerine into slices, addYou add melon in season, season everything with lemon juice. . .
Meatis best cooked when it's beef. And bake if it's pork. Since beef is tough and dry meat, pork, even its lean parts, is softer. Rub the pork chop with salt and pepper mixture and fry in a pan without oil. Or roast in foil in the oven.
Diet is very effective, you just want to get slim and strictly adhere to the rules.
