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.

I have been on the Baby Food diet for about 7 days because I got a stomach virus - and........ lost 8 pounds. I have a carnation instant breakfast for b-fast then 2 jars of baby food (stage 2; 120 calories = 240) then cereal for dinner - any kind. I'm hungry sometimes, but not starving. I'm gonna stick w/ it. It's working for me. :)

I have studied human kinetics and this diet is good but beware of three things:

1) keep it for short-term use or use it at times when you want to jumpstart weightloss or breach weight-loss plateau. If not you will experience number 2

2) beware of weight cycling. What most people do not realise is that diets are not just for a short amount of time until you reach the desired weight loss goal. If you do any diet and lose the 20 pounds you wanted to lose and then stop dieting, you will gain it right back.

3) Do not cut carbs. carbs are your body's main source of glucose. if you do not provide enough glucose through your diet, your body will break down body PROTEIN to synthesize glucose for itself. In short term it will seem as if you are loosing weight but this is only loss of muscle mass. This also can be prevented by keeping this diet short term if you are also reducing carbohydrate intake.

I know that jennifer aniston uses this short term before award shows in combination with daily workout for three hours each day in the final run up to the event night. Thats a lot of work- don't set yourself up for dissapointment by thinking you will get those kinds of results without hitting the gym.

Hi, this is day 4 for me and I have already lost five pounds. I don't work out but I'm in college so i do a lot of walking on campus. I start my day with two jars at 7am and have one to two more every two hours after. I eat a regular dinner at around 6pm. I only like the bananas and the sweet potato and those i have to kind of combine to eat. But wish everyone the best.

I remember way back in the hay days I did a diet with baby food and it worked. The only problem is when you weened off the diet not to go back to eating unhealthy food.

I will try this for a couple of weeks to see if I see any weight loss.

Today was Day 1: Yikes!!! I have read many many sites about this diet and I have to say... I decided to go with my main meal being dinner. Since I have hypothyroidism I have gained a lot of weight this is a healthy way to shed the pounds and I def think this going to be a success. Here are some tips from my findings:

1. eat one container for breakfast
2. have a handful of nuts of a hard boiled egg only proteins NO CARBS
3. eat another container for lunch
4. have another protein keep them small
5. have a healthy dinner, i had grilled chicken baked potato tablespoon of rice low carb foods
6. and most important sip lots of water and herbal teas.

I feel great and it really curbs your appetite. It's hard at first but it gets easier every day. Good luck to all! Keep the Faith!
