The Maggi diet is a protein diet. Her "mistress" is considered 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 the name child: the abbreviated name Margaret.
Of course, over time, the diet changed due to the fact that many products became available, which in the years of the Baron's youth ordinary people could not find. The most important condition for successful weight loss with 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 it has a lot of other protein foods. Thatcher herself said she eats about thirty chicken eggs a week. In my opinion, this is a lot, so we will not go to extremes and we will balance the menu so that none of the recommended products cause disgust.
Its efficiency in "stressful" reduction of carbohydrates, in which, however, we will not starve, because it is pleasant to eat fruit, meat, dairy products.
Another secret described by the child is that meals are takenstrictly at the same time every day, whether it is a day off or a working day. If you sit at breakfast five days a week, say, at nine in the morning, stick to it the rest of the day. The amount eaten is exactly the same as indicated in the menu. There’s nothing complicated here: no calorie counting, no hunger strike. But determination and perseverance are not superfluous here.
Contraindications to the "Maggi" diet
- Gastrointestinal diseases.
- Pressure too low or too high.
- During pregnancy, breastfeeding.
- Allergy sufferers, provided the allergen is present in one of the recommended foods: either eggs, citrus or cow protein.
If a "breakdown" occurs, you must restart your diet.
As with any other diet, I recommend exercising in the gym and long walks, drinking plenty of water: it is necessary to tone muscles, speed up metabolism, and then you will not only get rid of fat that bored you, you will become the ownerathletic figures and strong immunity.
The initial weight plays a big role: the more extra pounds, the more they will have for 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 sudden and dangerous to your health, and thanks to its gradual reduction and regular sports activities, you will not have "excess" skin that sometimes lookseven less aesthetically pleasing than excess fat.
According to the reviews of people who lasted until the end of "Maggi" for a month (with a large initial weight), you can lose fifteen or even twenty kilograms. Since this is considered a very dramatic weight loss, I advise you to keep a diet once a year, for example, to lose weight by summer. Competent "getting out" of any child is also very important: if after a while you return to your previous sedentary lifestyle and improper diet, then your weight will return and "bring friends". If you follow some simple "exit" rules, then the weight will not only not return, but will also be slightly reduced.
So, the way out of the Maggi diet:
- One of the possibilities, he is the best, most efficient and most correct - is to go right to the right diet. Adhering to all rules and regulations. Then you can forget about extra pounds forever.
- Another optionis to continue to use the foods you ate during your diet. One or more - it doesn't matter. For example, you can continue to eat grapefruit, tangerines, cottage cheese. Include them in your menu for at least a few more weeks and your weight will stay the same.
- And the third option:start adhering to the diet according to the "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 should becompletely eliminated.
This diet belongs to the "chemicals": a certain combination of foods provokes the emergence of chemical processes in the body that actively burn available fat.
We completely exclude from the menu all bakery products, pasta, cereals, potatoes - these are carbohydrates, which will not allow the body to start using fats. Of course, we exclude fatty meat.
Below I give me a month, which is based on personal experience, in twenty-eight days I lost 9 pounds, despite the fact that I do not have too much extra pounds. Buy a kitchen scale and do not deviate from the mass of the finished dish that I have indicated. If weight is not on the menu, then food can be eaten in any quantity.

Baked fishin the oven is a great cooking option for those who follow a diet, especially protein. To do this, you only 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 breastCooking is even faster and easier: whisk it well with a hammer and fry in a dry pan for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Vegetablescan only be cooked in water. Moreover, choose only one type for each meal. 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 SaladLet’s pamper ourselves on days when it’s not indicated that you can only eat citrus: cut a pear, apple into cubes, divide a tangerine into slices, add a melon in season, season everything with lemon juice. . .
Meatis best cooked if it is beef. And roast if it’s pork. Because beef is tough and dry meat, and pork, even its lean parts, is softer. Rub the pork chop with a mixture of salt and pepper and fry in a pan without oil. Or bake in foil in the oven.
