The Maggi Diet

Grapefruit on the Maggi diet

Among the many diets that currently exist, the main controversy is between a low-fat diet and a low-carb diet. In the past, fats were considered the main evil, today carbohydrates. But so far there is no reliable evidence of the superiority of this or that system. Proteins, fats, and carbohydrates are also useful. But in moderation. One of the varieties of restrictive diets, both fats and carbohydrates, is the Maggi nutritional system.

The Maggi Diet is a 2 to 4 week long protein nutrition system with the help of which you can lose up to 20 kg of excess weight painlessly without counting calories and feeling hungry.

Benefit and harm

The principle of the Maggi diet is based on a sharp decrease in the amount of fats and carbohydrates fed into the body due to the predominance of animal protein in the diet. Numerous positive reviews from weight loss testify to the effectiveness of the protein-nutritional system, which helps maintain muscle mass, satisfies hunger and also prevents sagging of the skin.

Despite the advantages of a protein diet, doctors say the opposite: a protein oversaturated diet only damages the function of the internal organs, especially the kidneys, in the long run. In addition, digestive enzymes are needed to digest proteins that are produced in limited quantities in the body, causing excess "unprocessed" product to rot in the intestines, causing constipation, diarrhea, gas, fermentation and inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.

Types of the Maggi Diet

The Maggi diet differs from most mono diets in the following ways:

  • severe weight loss (up to 20 kg) in four weeks;
  • noticeable volume reduction (up to 10 sizes);
  • strict diet;
  • a modest list of contraindications;
  • Stabilization of body weight;
  • save the result for a long time.

After completing a full four weeks of weight loss, you cannot repeat the Maggi technique until 12 months later at the earliest. Otherwise, the "second circle" of the protein cycle will put a lot of stress on the body, namely the work of the heart, kidneys and liver.

Depending on the main ingredient, Margaret Thatcher's diet is:

  • Egg;
  • Quark.

The classic Maggi egg diet is based on consuming a significant amount of eggs per day, which are the main source of protein. This product is a warehouse for important amino acids and trace elements. Namely iodine, niacin, selenium, iron and phosphorus, which are vital for the course of chemical processes in the body and the normal function of the internal organs.

The Maggi Quark Diet leads to increased fat loss, accelerates the elimination of toxins and improves the condition of the skin.

If desired, instead of eggs and cottage cheese, you can use low-fat cheese (up to 25%). This product has a positive effect on blood pressure, promotes the active excretion of decay products by the kidneys, improves the intestinal flora, strengthens bones and slows down the absorption of carbohydrates.

The Maggi cheese diet allows the use of all low-fat types of lactic acid products (including feta cheese 9%, light feta up to 13%, tofu 1. 5%, ricotta 8%, gaudette 7%, mozzarella 17%, brie 23%, Adyghe 14%). The optimal fat content in the product is 9%.

Advantages, disadvantages and contraindications

Some of the positive aspects of a protein diet include:

  • Lack of feeling of hunger, which makes losing weight easy and painless;
  • there are no restrictions on the amount of product consumed;
  • easy cooking;
  • no daily calorie counting required;
  • affordable nutrition;
  • a noticeable drop in volume;
  • high efficiency;
  • long-term preservation of the result obtained (from 1, 5 years).

For those who lose weight for 18-20 days, the question often arises: "Why is the weight not going away? " The reason for these "problems" is the body getting used to a protein diet and an intense loss of volume.

For this reason, before using Margaret Thatcher's diet food, the following contraindications must be considered:

  • diseases of the digestive system, as well as the heart, kidneys;
  • Pregnancy;
  • Allergies to eggs, cottage cheese, cheese, citrus fruits;
  • Breastfeeding;
  • high cholesterol levels that are higher than normal.

In the absence of the above risk factors, you can practice the Maggi diet. However, before you start losing weight, you should consult your doctor.

Features of the Maggi diet

In the classic version, Margaret Thatcher's original diet is designed for 14 days. Because of the prevalence of eggs in the diet, this method of losing weight is often referred to as "egg", even though the menu includes fruits, vegetables, cottage cheese, and meat. The daily intake of protein and citrus products compensates for the lack of vitamins and minerals that results from the predominance of protein-containing foods.

How to lose weight properly with Maggi technology

  1. Drink 2 liters of water a day.
  2. Exclude rich broths, oils, sugar, mayonnaise, ketchup, sauces, pastries from the menu.
  3. It is forbidden to make changes to the menu, namely, changing the place of dishes, increasing the portions.
  4. The diet should not be interrupted. If the weight loss rules are violated, the entire process should be repeated from the beginning.
  5. Fasting is strictly forbidden. During the day you should eat everything that is stated on the menu.
  6. Daily walks in the fresh air for at least an hour, this will help activate your metabolism.
  7. Get enough sleep (at least 8 hours of healthy sleep per day). Failure to comply with this condition is linked to increased appetite.
  8. It is allowed to consume any amount of green tea without sugar during the entire weight loss process.
  9. Weigh yourself daily when you wake up. First, it will make it possible to follow the dynamics of changes in body weight and, second, it will be an excellent incentive to keep going.
  10. It is necessary to cook vegetables in plain water without salt, spices and flavor enhancers. At the same time, it is allowed to use garlic, onions and peppers during the cooking process.
  11. Cucumbers, carrots and lettuce help to reduce the acute feeling of hunger. However, they can only be consumed after 2 hours after the recommended diet.
  12. If the menu does not mention the allowable amount of the product consumed, it can be eaten without restrictions until the feeling of satiety appears.

If the duration of the protein diet needs to be increased, it is not advisable to repeat all of the steps of the technique again. It is enough to limit yourself to spending 14 days on the nutritional system in the first week and 14 days in the fourth (the so-called 14/14 scheme).

Implementing the above recommendations will increase the effectiveness of the technique and achieve the desired result.

At the same time, the Maggi diet allows for a complete repetition cycle of the technique for two weeks.

Results of protein nutrition

the result of losing weight with the Maggi diet

Regardless of the type of diet (egg, cottage cheese, or cheese), the results of weight loss will be the same.

The first week contains protein, is well tolerated and has large plumb lines. On average, weight loss during this period is 0. 8-2 kg per day, and it is 5-7 kg. At the same time, weight loss occurs due to the withdrawal of excess water from the body.

In the second week, fat begins to burn, which is why the lot per day is no more than 0. 3 kg.

After 14 days of the diet, the weight will decrease even more slowly, but the volume will decrease rapidly and the skin will tighten.

Due to the fact that the Maggi protein diet helps reduce stomach volume throughout the weight loss process, hunger is practically not felt. This is why "egg" and "quark" diets are in great demand with many women.

Maggi's two-week feeding system

The effectiveness of the protein method for losing weight directly depends on the strict observance of its rules.

If one of the conditions is violated, for example, when replacing one product with another or when switching lunch and dinner, it will not lead to the desired result.

Despite the optimistic results of this diet that can be found on the internet, I repeat: there is no such thing as a perfect diet. If you need to lose weight, it is enough to provide a calorie deficit, while it does not matter what you limit - carbohydrates or fats, how many meals a day: 2 or 5, etc. With a decrease in calorie content, the law of conservation of energy works and a person begins toTo lose weight. As with most diets, after some time after restricting your calorie intake, your metabolism begins to slow down. And since a diet is always a short-term story, after it is rejected, the body replenishes the lost kilograms in the form of new fat deposits. Yes, diets work, but not for long. Among other things, you need to clearly understand that with obesity and overweight, as a rule, there is an eating disorder, and the reasons for the appearance of extra pounds may have psychological roots. This means that weight loss work cannot be limited to just a restrictive diet, it requires extensive work and approach. Only this option solves the problem of obesity for a long time and without any loss of health.
