Baby Food Diet

Hollywood's newest weight loss diet comes in tiny little jars.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Update: Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon on Baby Food Diet

The latest fad to hit body-crazed Hollywood is the Baby Food Diet. Yep, you guessed it, noshing on jars of mashed sweet potatoes and gloppy bananas is the newest trend that makes you question if Hollywood is suffering a need to regress and feel younger (much younger!) or if there is something nutritiously beneficial to spooning down jars of the glassed stuff? You'll hear about Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and even some of the Desperate Housewives hitting a jar of baby food to ease cravings.

  • Baby food is free of additives, pure and full of vitamins
  • Portions are small enough to control cravings and avoid the temptation to overeat
  • Many selections are gluten-free for those on a gluten-free diet
  • Organic varieties available
  • Broad variety of flavors

  • Small portions could lead to a binge later on
  • Taste is bland -Since very little chewing is involved, satiety might not be achieved

There are no specific guidelines that have been created yet for The Baby Food Diet . In time, your local bookstore will carry a guide on how to lose weight by subsisting on baby food. For now, the requirements are:

The dieter eats either all baby food or eats one adult meal and baby food for the rest of the day. Since babies' digestive systems are so young and innocent, most baby food that you'll find at the grocery store is free of added fats, fillers and other additives. Organic baby food is also lining the shelves so you can be sure that the mushy stuff you're eating does not contain genetically-modified ingredients, growth hormones, or antibiotics.


Since The Baby Food is more of a trend right now rather than a specific guideline, no exercise recommendations have been put forth. But as reality and science has shown us, the more you expend and the less you consume, you will shed the pounds.


The Baby Food Diet is likely to inspire some good chuckles and grimaces as its popularity grows. From a nutritional perspective, the diet is clearly packed with veggies and fruits and thereby full of vitamins and minerals; and it does have the portion control element going for it too. As for its long-term ability to keep off any lost pounds? That still remains to be seen.

Are you dense.... They are called baby food.... not adult food the point is you don't get the correct nutrition from that.

I have to tell you, I am more disheartened by the so called generic commenter” than by the more obvious spammer. You may ask why Because at least the spammer is completely open and honest about their spam! I know who they are. The generic commenter is a con man and also a faker! You can probably tell that I have very strong opinions towards these type of charlatans Michael

You guys don't need to go and BUY baby food! lol I have a lot of digestive problems and sometimes need to eat soft foods, so if I want meat or something I blend it into the consistency of baby food. Just watch your portion size and by organic foods so they aren't loaded with hormones that makes some people gain weight and pesticides that ruin your insides. Cook your food very healthy, season it with spices for flavor, and if you'd like to give your digestive system a break put your food in a blender with some water and blend it into the consistency of baby food. -Even mothers feeding their babies can do this so they don't have to buy jars of baby food.

I'm a dietetic student in my senior year and just wanted to let everyone know... this is really bad! This will only give you about 800 calories per day, your body needs at least 1200 calories a day to function. This diet will cause your body to go into "starvation mode." As soon as you break from the diet your body will pack on the pounds and try to store as much as it can, preparing for another round of starvation.

I am just starting on day 1. I know this is not a long term solution but think it is a pretty safe and healthy way to get back to basics. Most do not taste great so no wanting to overeat here. I feel food and it is not bad for you and I think it will help me get back to correct portion sizes and back to enjoying the basic flavor of most foods. I know I have gotten to the point that I over eat because things just taste good. I think it is a healthy and affordable way to get back on track and slowly go back to healthy real food in correct portions. If I get off track I can always go back to the baby food for a short period to get back on. I use to do this with Jenny Criag but which worked. But this is cheaper and healthier. I have not been hungry and never want more than what I need to eat.

Is anyone peeing a lot since starting the baby food diet? Im peeing like crazy.

I tried this diet a year ago and it didn't work in the slightest, in fact, I was on it for about 2 days and I ended up being sick everywhere. Not the best diet around tbh, it hasn't got the right amount of nutrients an adult needs so I believe its a bad idea!

Started the diet today so far the baby food taste like bull dick.... Trying out for a week lets see whats the deal

Okay, so I'm on day 3 of this diet and feel fantastic! I'm one of those people who are prone to having a "food baby" when touching any type of carbs. So I thought i'd be adventurous and cook pasta for dinner last night as my "adult" meal of the day and guess what, no food baby and I didn't even feel the slightest bit bloated!

I've kind of changed the diet slightly to having a pot every hour and a half until dinner time as opposed to the 14 pots a day. I can already tell I feel more energetic, get full up more easily (due to portion control) and obviously not bloating. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those who have a hectic lifestyle. The only negative comment I have about this diet is that the savory baby food is absolutely disgusting and im living off the sweet alternatives! (which are actually SO tasty!)

I would definitely recommend this diet to anyone! At the end of the day if you try this diet for a few days and find its not for you, then what have you got to lose? £5 you spent on your 2 days worth of baby food? You'd be surprised what this diet can do! I was!!!

Hello! Babies NEED this food, not adults! No wonder there is hardly any baby food on the shelves for my 7 month old! These IDIOTS are eating it all up! What will babies have to eat if it's all gone? Morons.

FYI, the rubbery film inside lids of baby food jars has BPA in it, the same stuff people complained about with Nalgene bottles and microwaved Gladware. Why a substitute for BPA in these lids hasn't been found is beyond me.

i have been reading all your post's mmmm very interesting. i must say i say the bigger than lady gaga show last night and found it funny, then interesting as i have been trying to loose weight for ages. i went on the special k diet and lost a few pounds then got bored. the baby food diet seems to be working with some so i will be trying it out defo, i have & weeks to loose 1 stone, fingers crossed for me, i hope to reach my goal. i wish all those that are doing or are going to attempt the babyfood diet all the best xx

This diet has been taken out of context. Tracey Andreson prescribed it to Jennifer Aniston as an emergecy diet when she needed to loose weight fast for an upcoming movie. Even she (Anderson) is against starving to lose weight.

So unless you are some hollywood actress or model who relies on her body to make money, you don't need to follow this diet. Just eat well, exercise, and you'll never have to worry about dieting.

I also saw this today on bigger Than lady GaGa, I've been trying to loose weight since the new year with my own kind of plan, which has been all about portion control. i think I'm doing ok but not as good as I'd of liked. So i thought I'd give this a go, years ago I use to east baby puddings as I have a bit of a sweet tooth ( before I had children myself, i now have 3 boys my eldest is now 13 and my youngest 5 ) so this may help. I think I'm going to do it by having and adult evening meal but the rest of the day on baby food, It's got to be worth a try, so fingers crossed xx
