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.

ive started the baby food diet. I really dont mind the food as i just dont think about it and eat it. Although i have ajusted the diet so that i eat more fruit, baby food for tea and a sandwich for lunch. That way im still losing weight but eating things i like to. I love the vegetable, rice and chicken baby food.
The yogurts are good too.

Think it should work but in the long run i think ud start eating the same as u was after the baby food diet as ud miss what u was eating.

Plenty of water helps too

I used to weigh 260 lbs. I started using this diet, and I've lost 60 lbs in 2 months. I eat 1 baby food fruit for breakfast. A small portion of either fish or chicken for lunch with a side salad, dressing on the side. For dinner, I'll have a salad and a vegi or fruit baby food. I drink only water and iced tea (no sugar added. Just lemon), and I exercise every day. Once a week I'll eat a portion of rice, or some type of carb. If I have any cravings for sweets, it's sugar free and only one serving. No more than one sweet per week.

whot age baby food is every one useing as it does not say

The fruit ones are really good. I admit that I haven't tried the others like the vegetables and stuff, mainly because I heard from others how horrid they tasted. The fruit jars and the ones in the plastic containers are delicious! So easy on the go, and I've lost 6 pounds so far in a little over 3 weeks. I wouldn't recommend using this a breakfast, lunch, dinner type of diet, but for snacks, I think it's fine.

babyfood is disgusting, whole foods are so much better for you and more enjoyable.

I've been following this diet for the past two weeks and have already dropped 4 pounds! I have slim-fast for breakfast, a jar of baby food as a snack, a slim-fast bar and a jar of baby food for lunch, and another jar of baby food as a snack. I eat WHATEVER I want for dinner, BUT I now put my dinner on a smaller plate to make the food look bigger. I'm even more motivated to lose weight now and have started exercising this past week too! My only problem is drinking water, but I'm working on that. :) Since I pretty much eat the baby food as snacks, I think it's going to be pretty easy to stick with it. I don't miss my chips or granola bars at all!
