Diet, diet, diet… Very common used word in the last centuries… While somewhere in this world some people are dying from hunger, some people are trying not to eat, therefore to lose weight. It is a paradox, isn’t it?


But it wouldn’t be interesting if we all had the same life, would it? I can’t say that I am having big problems with my weight. It is actually quite stable,. Well, it is almost the same.

But when everyone is talking about the diet, you start to think that maybe you are outside the league, when you don’t even know, what it means since you haven’t tried anything.

So after that you start questioning yourself - why I don’t do anything??? Since my weight was quite stable and I didn’t have any problems with that, then there is a moment when you can feel every kg which you gain. This is what also happened with me and I will tell you now how I got to the Maya Diet and what came of it.

In the spring of 2007 I gained 4 kg which I just couldn’t lose. Of course, after these 4 kg came 4 more, so altogether these were already 8 kg. I definitely can’t say that I was totally unsatisfied and unhappy. But I definitely can say that I could feel those. I didn’t have stress about it, I just thought - how they came, they will be gone in the same way.

One day in 2010 I was on SPA procedure and the friend of mine told me that in the magazine there is an article about the Maya Diet. The main idea was that after 13 days of the diet you can lose up to 7 kg and your metabolism is being regulated up to 3 years. So, I thought - this is what I need!!! The whole review of the diet you can find at the end of the article. But I will tell you my experience until the day when I quit.

Before I started I read all the Maya Diet since I knew that without eating or just drinking water I wouldn’t pass it.

So, I read it, and found the diet very acceptable. I got steak inside and much coleslaw, what was really important for me. I can’t live without them and started from the Monday.
Very important was in this diet the meal time: breakfast at 8 AM, lunch at 2 PM and dinner not later than 6 PM.



  • First day of the week - Monday, happy to start. Easy - on the breakfast black coffee without sugar, on the lunch 1 tomato, 2 hardboiled eggs, coleslaw without mayonnaise or sour cream (a little bit of vegetable oil) and on the dinner I got again coleslaw and braised steak. It sounds easy, doesn’t it? After the first day I felt good since my mission to lose those 8 kg has started.


  • Second day passed without meat and at the end of the day, I only started to feel a little bit hungry. But I thought: “You have an aim, so you have to do it till the end!!!”


  • On the third day I got meat again and it was better, the problem was that my hunger started to increase.


  • Fourth day - again without meat and on the dinner something very, very dietary - one cocktail from apple with yoghurt. Was I hungry? Definitely…


  • But on the fifth day I should got fish on the lunch and steak on the dinner, so decided that I need to do the fifth day as well.


  • I quit at the end of the sixth day when in the evening I just needed sugar so much that I ate like 3 ice creams that evening…



Did I lose any kg? I can be very honestly with you - no, but I saw my friend who suggested this diet - she “survived” till the end. I told her that I haven’t lost any kg and I asked her how many did she lose because I saw that there were changes. She told me that actually she lost these 7 kg. The main point was that she started to lose exactly after the seventh day, I don’t know why… But it was how it was…

Do I recommend the Maya Diet? Definitely… with one condition - you have to be strong enough and do it till the end. I just think that there are some persons who can do it and maybe some persons who just are not created for any kind of diet.

I tried two more, I just don’t remember what they were, but I do remember that I quit also after couple days. At least this one was the longest one for me. And I also think - how many people there are, so many opinions and reviews can be about this diet. What can work for one person, can destroy another person - the only way to find out is to try!!!
