Diet Maggi. Detailed menu

Margaret Thatcher

The diet Maggi or egg and citrus diet is very popular, as it is really effective and rather simple. You are allowed to consume quite a varied set of products, so there are no big difficulties in using. But there is one strict rule – the established order of meals which can’t be interchanged. Thus, if you decide to take a course, you need to comply with all requirements without fail or start all over again.

It is believed that this diet was named after one of the most famous women of the XX century – Margaret Thatcher, and was shortened to Maggie/Maggi. It is not known whether she used this weight loss plan, after all, the Prime Minister did not suffer from the problem of excess weight and did not set a goal to invent a diet, but a strict individual menu was designed by the specialists of the Mayo Clinic.

The essence of the diet in theses

It is allowed to remove a product from the menu, but it is forbidden to replace products at your discretion. The only exception is the replacement of eggs with cottage cheese in case of allergy to chicken eggs;

It is forbidden to change the order of meals;

Eat just as much as it is indicated in the menu;

Cook vegetables in water without adding the broth;

It is forbidden to add various fats and oils to food;

You need to drink more pure water;

You can drink tea and coffee any time, but without sugar and milk (instead of sugar it is allowed to use a sugar substitute);

It is categorically forbidden to use alcohol;

The prohibited products: potatoes, bananas, grapes, mangoes, grapes, figs, dates, cereals, pasta, mutton;

If between the main meals you feel an intolerable hunger, you can eat something from vegetables: a cucumber, a carrot or a salad – but only 2 hours after the recommended meal;

If you interrupted the course (for example, ate a prohibited product) – you need to start again.


Diet Maggi is divided into an egg diet and a cottage cheese diet.

The egg diet is designed for 4 weeks. The obligatory products of this diet – boiled eggs and citrus fruits, preferably grapefruit. The grapefruit diet is effective because these citrus fruits contain substances that prevent the absorption of fat. Recent studies have found that the effect of grapefruit for weight loss is responsible for flavonoid naringin, which controls the production of insulin, and hence, it overwhelms the hunger. Therefore, the Maggi diet can be recommended for very busy women, who, however, strive to improve the figure. The combination of protein and grapefruit allows you to level blood sugar and keep the appetite in check.
