Just when you thought you heard it all in diet fads, here comes the Baby Food Diet. That’s right, revisit your time as a newborn when all you ate was jars of whipped sweet potatoes, and mixed vegetable with chicken.
As is often the case with some fad diets, the Baby Food Diet is hot in Hollywood. There is talk of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and even some of the cast of Desperate Housewives taking part in this back-to-the cradle weight loss plan.
There has been a particularly strong buzz surrounding Jennifer Aniston of late. She is still one of the few in the elite “America’s Sweetheart” club. And, even at 41, she still has the body of a twentysomething.
British newspaper The Daily Mail is reporting that the former Friends star has lost seven pounds in one week on the Baby Food Diet.
The plan calls for 14 portions of puréed food ever day, followed by a normal-portioned healthy dinner. This plan was created by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson.
“I developed a cleanse where you can still eat and it’s a lot of puréed foods. I was very careful about the foods I chose to put in it,” says Anderson.
“When you do these liquid cleanses I felt a responsibility to come up with something. Liquid cleanses do help you lose weight but you will gain more the next week. I wanted something where you can eliminate toxicity, break bad habits but still have your digestive system going. That is when the baby food cleanse was born.”
Among Tracy Anderson’s current and former celebrity fitness clients are Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna.
