Diet Maggi managed to establish itself as an effective way to combat excess weight. Today, in addition to the main (egg) version of the corrective nutrition system, once developed by nutritionists for the legendary British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, there is another variety – the Maggi curd diet. It can be “taken into service” by those people who, for any reason (allergies, high cholesterol), are not allowed to eat eggs.
As evidenced by the reviews, the effectiveness of “cottage cheese alternative” is not inferior to the classic version. In record time, this slimming system makes it possible to lose 15-20 kilograms.
The essence of diet
The basis of the corrective power supply system is a specially designed menu. The diet is chosen in such a way as to initiate chemical reactions in the body aimed at burning fat deposits.
Cottage cheese, which will become the main ingredient of your menu for a month, is an excellent source of protein. This product will not only quench hunger, but also help preserve muscle mass.
Often, diets negatively affect the appearance. Extra pounds really go away, but due to the fact that the body does not receive certain substances or they are supplied in insufficient quantities, the hair becomes brittle and dull, and the skin loses its silkiness and peels. With a cottage cheese diet, Maggi does not threaten you with this, because the curd contains calcium. It is he who is responsible for the structure of our hair, the condition of the skin and teeth, as well as for the strength of bone tissue.
In addition, calcium has another very useful property – it contributes to the “acceleration” of metabolism, so that the pounds go faster.
There is one more important nuance – calcium has a beneficial effect on the nervous system, reduces tension, levels the emotional background. Therefore, the curd diet is transferred an order of magnitude easier than other systems of corrective nutrition – it’s no secret that often a side effect of any food restriction is a reduced mood caused by the rejection of your favorite dishes.
Please note that the ideal option for the Maggi diet is cottage cheese with fat content 1-5%. You should not use a completely fat-free product precisely because calcium entering the body will not be absorbed.
With careful observance of the rules, as evidenced by the reviews, you can lose at least 15 kilograms in four weeks on the curd version of the Maggi diet. It should be noted that with a high degree of obesity, the result may be more modest.
Maggi’s curd option is a strict diet due to the need to carefully follow the rules. Any violation of the established diet means that you have to go back to the very beginning and run the program again.
In addition, take into account the following nuances:
- Watch your drinking regimen. Water helps to speed up metabolism and enhanced fat burning. In addition, it helps reduce swelling. During the diet, mineral water without gas and green tea without sugar are allowed.
- All dishes should be prepared without adding fat. Boil vegetables in plain water, not broth.
- Natural seasonings will help diversify the taste of dishes. Salt is allowed in very small quantities.
- “Shuffle” days or swapping meals is not allowed. Also, you can not replace products with others.
- Please note that during the Maggi curd diet, it is better to use not oranges, but grapefruits.
Pros and cons of diet
Do not consider diet as a “magic wand”, by the wave of which the desired indicator will appear on the scales. Maggi’s curd version, like any other similar weight loss system, has its own advantages and disadvantages.
So, indisputable advantages of the diet are:
