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.

I just recently heard of this baby food diet and actually it sounded like a really good idea regardless of all the negative comments that some haters had to put their one cent input in. First off, I use to be over 220lbs now I weigh 168, I'm 23 yrs old and 5'5. I have recently hit a stop on my weightloss. I just got a scale that shows an estimate of how many calories I ate that day.. It's really shocking when you think you are eating good or good enough and about the right portion you should have then according to my calories on my scale like the other day it was around 2,100 it's like no wonder I'm not losing weight. With the baby food diet you eat 14 jars or lil tubs a day with a good dinner. I went to the store last night and got 2 pack of each organic bananas (60 calories), organic applesauce (40 calories) and vanilla custard with bananas (110 calories).. I just wanted to try a few to see if I could tolerate the taste.. This morning I had coffee (usual) and 1 tub of applesauce and 1 tub of bananas and it was actually good.. It tastes like real applesauce and real bananas.. If some people don't like the taste that shows how use people are to unnatural flavors and all the sugar and salts. I think this is pure and healthy and portion control. And you can still have a regular dinner. I'm going to give this an honest try.

I buy baby food I actually find it easy to just snack on, plus my fave is the applesauce, and the sweet potatoes, I just eat some I never really thought of it as a diet thing it was just easy to get my fruits or veggies without having to think about how much cals. I was getting.

I did this along with lots of tea (that helped with the hunger pangs) and I lost 60 lbs in 3 months without even really trying. It's an easy (pre-portioned, conveniently packaged), cost effective (buy 2 tubs of baby food at wal-Mart for 96 cents) diet that is great for people who do not have time to cook and/or prepare all of their diet food. You can grab a baby food jar, throw it into your purse quicker than you can make a stop at McDonalds.

Am currently doing this.
I think its pretty good.
If you're looking for good-tasting baby food, Heinz is pretty good. Make sure you check the calories, sugar and salt content though, because sometimes there is more to the mush than you may think

Okay I just wanted to lose like a quick 10-15 lbs...but I went to the store and bought organic baby food and all the baby food I bought was fruit that sounded like it would be okay/good to eat...I was wrong, I tried to eat one baby food jar this morning and was gagging and ready to throw up by the end(and it was bananna mango)...I spent quite a bit of money on the food so I am still going to try the other types and hopefully find one that I like, but I will see what happens in a couple of weeks and if I find one I like and lose weight I will stick to it and let y'all know....

Fad diets don't work! Quick fixes don't work. Seriously, you are consuming nasty tasting food to lose weight! How long do you intend to do this? Why not try something that works for a life time; balance wholesome nutrition and exercise. www.Nutrimirror.com is a free food and exercise journal that has online support and provides good advice on obtaining balanced health for life. What do you have to lose?

RAW FOOD DIET PEOPLE.
You do not have to consume baby food to get all the nutrients from your food. Baby food is just raw, unprocessed, mashed up food.
ARE YOU ALL THAT LAZY?
ARE YOU REALLY UNABLE TO RESEARCH WHAT RAW FOOD IS?
It's amazing how you all rush to the grocery store and torture yourselves with the newest fad when a little effort and knowledge would go so much further.
Enjoy your baby food......

I have Crohns Disease, and have used baby food for years, when I have a "flare- up" and need to rest my digestive system,
works great

there is no way someone could stay on this and keep the weight off long term...

You guys should try the raw food diet. I went from normal process foods (pasta, rice, meat, ect) to raw fruits, veggies, and nuts less than two weeks ago and have already lost 11 lbs.

Not only that, but I feel much more energized. And, i'm not gonna lie, I still have cravings, but whenever I do I just make a raw blueberry cobbler (amazing!!! better than most cooked desserts) or a raw taco (mmm), and I feel much better... You can find recipes online on google, youtube, ect.

I've seen before and after pics on eating raw on youtube, and people are loosing so much weight (some over 200 lbs) on raw food. Seriously, research this diet. It's AMAZING and there are way more options than you would think. And i'm sure that it tastes much better than baby food :P

Good luck with you're diet endeavors!

i started this diet today i had 2 for breakfast 2 for lunch 1 for a snack and a lean cuisine for dinner around 530 they really tasted terrible i bought organic baby food and i really dont reccomend buying meaty ones stick to the fruits because i couldnt even finish a peas and brown rice pot! i dont even want to imagine what the chicken and vegtable ones i bought taste like! i dont know if it was the food or my occasional migrane but as soon as i got home around 1030 i threw up my dinner. im not giving up yet but if my heahaches and nasuea continue im going to have to resort to blaming it on this diet.
