Maggi Diet

This diet is a serious food, so there is no need to make extra calorie calculations or prepare an individual meal plan according to certain recommendations. Follow the agreed menu every day and watch the pleasant changes in your body.

The Maggi Diet is often confused with the general broth diet due to its name. However, the basis of the diet we will consider in this article is not broth, but eggs and grapefruit.

Origin of Diet

The essence of the Maggi diet to lose weight

The name "Maggi" is the result of a word being mispronounced. In the original version, it was called "Maggie", a diminutive form of the name Margaret. According to rumors, this diet is due to the appearance of Margaret Thatcher. According to the popular version, the original weekly version of this diet was developed especially for Thatcher at the famous Mayo Clinic.

Although it is not known whether the legendary prime minister resorted to this method of weight loss, even after making significant changes to the original version, the diet is strongly associated with this woman. According to rumors, a sheet describing the technique was kept in Iron Maggie's documents for many years.
