The Maggi Diet is a protein-based nutritional system that lasts from 2 to 4 weeks, with which you can lose as much as possible up to 20kg of excess weight without counting calories and feeling hungry.
The story of the emergence of this technique goes back to 1979 and is associated with the famous British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Until recently, recipes of dishes and the principle of the Maggi diet were kept secret and only after the death of the Baroness, did the low carbohydrate weight loss system see the world.
According to the research, in the process of analyzing the archive of the “Iron Lady”, historians found a leaflet that described in detail the dietary scheme developed by the Mayo Clinic (USA). As a result, the published method was named after the most influential woman of the twentieth century – Margaret Thatcher, whose name was reduced to unrecognizability to 4 letters.
The original Maggi diet is 14 days, while all the other modifications are derived from the prototype, refined by modern scientists.
The principle of the method is based on the chemical reactions occurring in the body, which contribute to the gradual burning of fat and weight loss. Unlike most techniques, it is not built on limiting the number of calories consumed per day, such as the Malysheva diet. That is why the people protein method of weight loss "Iron Lady" is often called the chemical diet Maggi.
Benefit and harm
In pursuit of a slim body, the number of losing weight is growing rapidly every year. As a result, the number of diets that contribute to effective weight loss increases.
Currently, all methods of weight loss can be divided into protein (Dukan, Maggi, Atkins, kefir) and vegetable (buckwheat, rice, oatmeal, juice, fruit, vegetable).
Humanity has not yet invented an ideal system for dropping extra pounds, which is why each of them has advantages and disadvantages, and also has a beneficial and harmful effect on the functioning of human internal organs.
The principle of the Maggi diet is based on a sharp decrease in the amount of incoming fats and carbohydrates in the body, due to the predominance of animal protein in the diet. Numerous reviews of thinner testify to the benefits of a protein nutrition system that contributes to maintaining muscle mass, alleviating the feeling of hunger, and also prevents skin sagging.
Previously, it was believed that eating 2 or more eggs a day was unsafe, as they raise cholesterol, but today it has been proven that the negative effects of the product are neutralized by oil and fats. That is why people with diseases of the heart and blood vessels are recommended to take them at the same time.
Despite the benefits of a protein diet, reviews of doctors state the opposite: a supersaturated diet will only harm the functioning of the internal organs, in particular, the kidneys. In addition, digesting enzymes that are produced in the body in limited quantities are needed for protein digestion, as a result, an excess of “unprocessed” product rots in the intestine, which causes constipation, diarrhea, bloating, fermentation and inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.
Types of Maggi Diet
Maggi diet is different from most monodiets on the following indicators:
- severe weight loss (up to 20kg) in four weeks;
- noticeable decrease in volume (up to 10 sizes);
- strict diet;
- a modest list of contraindications (see below under “Advantages, disadvantages and contraindications”);
- stabilization of body weight;
- saving the result for a long time.
After completing the full four-week course of weight loss, you can repeat the method of Maggi no earlier than after 12 months. Otherwise, the “second round” of the protein cycle will exert the strongest load on the body, namely, on the work of the heart and kidneys.
Depending on the main ingredient, Margaret Thatcher’s diet is:
Maggi’s classic egg diet is based on eating a significant amount of eggs per day, which are the main source of protein. This product is a storehouse of important amino acids and trace elements. Namely, iodine, niacin, selenium, iron and phosphorus, which are vital for the chemical processes in the body and the normal functioning of the internal organs.
Regular consumption of eggs prevents the development of anemia, anemia, boosts immunity, improves memory, stimulates the brain and enhances attention.
Taking into account the reviews of nutritionists, in order to get a quick result and fill up the calcium deficiency, it is recommended to use cottage cheese with a fat content in the range of 3-5% as the main ingredient of the Magga diet. Milk product is the main source of methionine and tryptophan, which are actively involved in the functioning of the nervous, digestive systems. As well as calcium, phosphorus, iron – for the full development of bones, teeth, harmonious work of the heart muscle, the normalization of hemoglobin levels.
Maggi’s curd diet leads to enhanced fat splitting, accelerates the removal of toxins, improves skin condition.
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 elimination of decomposition products from the kidneys, improves the intestinal microflora, strengthens bones, slows down the absorption of carbohydrates.
The Maggi Cheese Diet allows for the use of any low-fat varieties of lactic acid products (including cheese 9%, feta-light up to 13%, tofu
