The Maggi Diet

The girl records the results of weight loss with the Maggi diet

Do you like to go hungry? The no. And any normal organism doesn't like it, including yours. And if it is held from hand to mouth, it begins to stock up. But it does not store calcium and iodine (as we would like), but fat and water. Yes, fat folds and swelling are reserves for a rainy day (as long as this is not a consequence of certain diseases and malfunctions of the vital systems). Suddenly you stop feeding your body again - and then it will take care of itself. This is why restriction diets, while producing results, rarely boast long-term consolidation of effect. The pounds thrown away with so much difficulty return quickly. Because the body, having survived the stress of hunger, immediately activates the "hamster" mode and begins to stock up. The same thing happens if you do not follow the consumption regime: the reserves of liquid begin in case of dehydration. There are now many diets that give a long-term effect, fixed over time, and at the same time do not contain restrictions on food. Quite often, certain food groups are removed, but the rest can and should be eaten in quantities that won't make you feel hungry. One of these diets is the Maggi diet.

Why Maggi

No, Maggi's bouillon cubes have nothing to do with it. Maggie is a simplified Magie (Margaret). And Margaret is the same "iron lady" Margaret Thatcher, the British prime minister in the 1980s. By the way, the first woman in Europe is the head of state. As you can imagine, a special diet has been developed for such a great woman. There is a version that the Maggi diet was based on a two-week fasting menu, developed by specialists from an American clinic specifically for Margaret Thatcher. Gradually, the unloading menu turned into a true low-carb diet, although it deviated significantly from the original version. But the basis remains the same.

The essence of the Maggi diet

This low-carb diet is designed to initiate the biochemical process of burning fat in the body. The food system does not require calorie counting, does not impose portion size restrictions, and allows for snacking. But! In order for the fat burning process to be successful and continuous, it is necessary to follow the menu clearly, without substitutions and rearrangements (if they are not provided for in the menu). The diet is studied for 4 weeks, each week has its own characteristics and is aimed at strengthening and consolidating the result. During the diet, you can lose 10 to 28 kilograms. For faster weight loss, exercise is recommended. The presence, albeit in small quantities, of carbohydrates allows you to practice sports and mental activities without harming your health. The result becomes evident from the fifth day of the diet, the first four excess fluids (those same reserves) are excreted from the body.

How the Maggi diet works

Due to the low carbohydrate content, the diet triggers an acceleration of the metabolism, so fats and carbohydrates begin to be processed faster, fatty acids break down faster and proteins are completely absorbed. Eggs, of which there are quite a few on the menu, suppress the feeling of hunger, in addition, a lot of energy will be spent on their digestion by the body. Grapefruit, which is an essential part of breakfast during the first two weeks of the diet, also suppresses hunger well.

Pros of the Maggi diet

The main advantage of the diet is that by adhering to its rules, you do not feel hungry. All the meals prescribed in the diet are easy to prepare and food is available. The obvious advantages include the following points:

  • calcium, which is rich in the diet, will strengthen bones and make nails and hair beautiful;

  • there are no habitual companions of mono diets - fatigue and bad mood, since calcium has a beneficial effect on the nervous system and gives the body additional energy;

  • when you lose weight, based on a certain chemical reaction, the skin and muscles do not sag, the body looks toned.

Instead of the regular breakfast cereals, the Maggi diet menu features grapefruit eggs

Cons of the Maggi diet
