The Maggi diet refers to protein diets. Her "mistress" is believed to be Margaret Thatcher, for whom she was developed by top US nutritionists. According to the "iron lady" herself, it was this nutritional option that helped her to keep her figure in top shape for many years, hence the name of the diet: short for Margaret.
Of course, over time, the diet was changed due to the fact that many products became available, which in the Baroness's youth years could not be found by ordinary people. The most important condition for successful weight loss in Maggi is strict adherence to the menu: you can exclude this or that product from it, but you cannot change them.
This diet is also called "egg" because people who follow it eat a lot of eggs, but they contain a lot of other protein foods. Thatcher herself said she eats about thirty chicken eggs a week. In my opinion, that's a lot, so we're not going to go to extremes and balance the menu so that none of the recommended products are disgusting.
Its effectiveness in the "stressful" reduction of carbohydrates, in which, however, we will not starve, because it is pleasant to eat fruit, meat, dairy products.
Another secret of the described diet is that meals are eatenstrictly 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, at nine in the morning, stick to this for the rest of the days. The quantity consumed is exactly the same as indicated in 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, nursing mothers.
- Allergic people, provided that the allergen is present in one of the recommended foods: eggs, citrus fruit or cow protein.
If a "failure" occurs, the diet must be restarted.
As with any other diet, I recommend exercising in the gym and taking long walks, drinking plenty of water - this is necessary to tone your muscles, speed up your metabolism, and thus not only will you get rid of the fat that has bored you, but you will also become the owner of a sports figure and strong immunity.
The starting weight plays a huge role - the more pounds, the more they will go for each week. And vice versa: if you want to lose about 5 kilograms, it will take about two or 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 "extras"skin, which, at times, also appears less aesthetically pleasing than excess fat.
According to reviews of people who have endured to the end of "Maggi" for a month (with a high starting weight), you can get rid of fifteen or even twenty kilograms. As this is considered very dramatic weight loss, I recommend sticking to the diet once a year, for example, 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 poor diet, then your kilograms will return and you will "take friends with you". If you stick to a few simple "exit" rules, the weight will not only not come back, it will drop a little more as well.
So the exit from the Maggi diet:
- One of the options, it is the best, the most effective and correct - is to go directly to the right diet. By adhering to all rules and regulations. So you can forget about excess weight forever.
- The second optionis to continue using the foods you ate during your diet. One or more, it doesn't matter. For example, you can continue to eat grapefruits, tangerines, cottage cheese. For at least another couple of weeks, include them on your menu 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 fourteen days after our weight loss marathon, you'll have to limit yourself to using sweets and harmfulness.
Let me remind you that, of course, alcohol should becompletely eliminated.
This diet belongs to the "chemistry": 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 fats. Of course we exclude fatty meat.
Below I give a menu for a month, which was compiled on the basis of personal experience, in twenty-eight days I lost 9 kilograms, despite the fact that I don't have a lot of 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 eaten in any quantity.

It was said above to abandon the diet, now more about the nuances of cooking: salt and other natural spices, onions, garlic can be added to dishes. All salads are not seasoned with anything, we cook everything hot without oils and other fats. Products can be cooked in a water bath, so they perfectly retain their useful properties.
Allowed vegetables include:zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, peas, eggplant. No potatoes and corn!
Fruit: everything except bananas, grapes, mangoes, dried fruit. We put citrus fruits.
You should also completely eliminate 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 substitute sugar.
Baked fishis 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. Cook for forty minutes to an hour, depending on how big the fish is. If desired, lemon juice can be added.
Chicken breastTo cook even faster and easier: beat well with a hammer and fry in a dry pan for 3-4 minutes per side.
Vegetablescan only be boiled in water. In addition, for each meal, choosing only one type. Cut the zucchini into cubes, season with salt, a little pepper and put on the fire. You can slightly diversify the taste with fresh herbs.
MacedoniaLet's pamper ourselves on days when it is not indicated that only citrus fruits can be eaten: cut a pear, an apple into cubes, divide the mandarin into slices, add the melon in season, season everythingwith lemon juice. . .
MeatIt is best to cook if it is beef. And bake if it's pork. Since beef is hard, dry meat, and pork, even its lean parts, are softer. Rub the pork chop with salt and pepper and fry it in an oil-free pan. Or roast in foil in the oven.
The diet is very effective, you just need to lose weight and strictly follow the rules.
