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.

PRO
  • 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

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

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.

EXERCISE

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.

CONCLUSION

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.

The "Hollywood" Baby Food Diet has been around since Gerber started to put food into little jars. 1930.

The diet works because:

1. The tiny jars are portion control.

2. Easy to count daily calories, fat grams, sugar grams consumed.

3. Variety in food choices.

4. Easy to maintain at work or home.

5. The cost can be an issue for some who choose this diet, but weighed against pre-package food diets like Jenny Craig or Weight Watcher or Nutra Systems the cost is less over the long haul.

6. For the cost, the diet is worth trying.

Or people can buy organic fruits and vegetables, save the hassle of having little jars laying around and not be a lazy .

Of course if you consume the same amount of food as a 2 year old your going to lose weight. But that doesn't make it healthy for you.

Grab an orange, and stop eating to much sugar. You know what is and isn't good for you, you don't need a diet to tell you this.

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.

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.
