Maggie's diet is a low-calorie food for weight loss that lasts 4 weeks. The daily diet uses foods high in protein, and the intake of fats and carbohydrates is limited.
The name of the diet comes from Margaret's name, as the diet plan was created by the Mayo Clinic specifically for Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s.
There are two options for the diet - egg (based on the use of eggs, fruits, vegetables and meat) and cottage cheese ("dacha"). The Maggi cottage cheese diet is used for allergies to chicken eggs and involves replacing each egg with 100 g of cottage cheese.
If you follow all the dietary rules, you can lose 3 to 5 pounds a week. As a rule, in the first week the weight disappears, reducing the swelling and removing excess water from the body, and then the weight loss process can be slowed down.
To make the Maggi Egg diet more effective for 4 weeks, you need to follow these dietary guidelines:
Foods that can be consumed during the diet are low in calories because they contain a minimum of fat and carbohydrates. In addition to protein products such as eggs and meat, it is allowed to include vegetables, mostly raw, in the menu.

A feature of the first and second weeks of Maggie's diet is the same egg and fruit breakfast that helps the body adapt to changes in diet.
Chicken eggs contain protein, healthy fats and vitamins to ensure long-lasting satiety, so your daily breakfast for the first 14 days should include 2 hard-boiled eggs, grapefruit, tea or coffee without sugar.
From the beginning of the third week until the end of the diet, breakfast may consist of other elements, depending on the recommendations and individual preferences.
At this stage, Maggie's diet is limited to a list of foods listed for each day, of which they independently form 4 meals.
Monday: Unlimited fruit.
Tuesday: permitted amount of vegetables (raw and stewed).
Wednesday: Fruit salads, raw and stewed vegetables.
Thursday: fish, cucumbers and tomatoes.
Friday: meat or poultry, cooked vegetables.
Saturday: One fruit all day.
Sunday: same as previous day (other fruits allowed).
