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.

Do You Know the Best Diet Shakes of 2016?

  • 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 swear by this, omg this diet is the best thing that has ever happened to me!

This is my second day doing this diet and it's a GREAT IDEA!! I'm not even craving solids! I've got 3 people from work onto this as well and we have a code name for it: BFD! (baby food diet) and I rip the labels off the BF (baby food) so no-one knows what it is.

I chew a lot of gum during the day as well. It's supposed to send false signals to your brain to make you think you're eating so you don't feel hungry but I eat a lot of BF thoughout the day, about 12 - 14 cans.

I'm loving the BFD and im suprised i actually have quite a bit of energy considering I'm not eating anything else.

I can't wait to weigh myself after one week, im hoping to lose 3 kgs and will let yous know :o) Good luck everyone!!

I'm going to give this a try!!

I love baby desserts & cereal!

My plan: replace breakfast lunch & snacks with baby & toddler foods.

Breakfast: baby cearl, yougurt, or baby fruits
Lunch: toddler baby foods like Gerber Graduates toddler dinners or such foods
Snacks: baby food, or toddler snacks like puffs, or other Toddler snacks
Dinner: healthy adult meal with family
Lots of water!!
Goal: portion & calorie control with added nutrition.

I have migraines & preservatives & artificial ingredients often trigger my migraines - I think this easy to digest, healthy, alternative to low-cal & low-carb diet food will be extremely heful!

A few weeks ago i came across this page trying to find out more about this baby food diet. I decided to try my own little version of it, but not as a way to lose weight, just to keep in shape.
I swapped a couple of meals a day for a jar of fruit or rice pudding (and i must say, Hipp Organic rice pudding is tastier than actual rice pudding! haha)
I also snacked on the fruit jars aswell.

I did try a Heinz chicken dinner, which was edible, but not the nicest thing i've ever tasted. So stick to the fruits as they are very yummy! :)

Personal favorites are Hipp rice pudding, banana yogurt breakfast and Cow & Gate fruity muesli

When I was in highschool I was on a babyfood diet (grad 1996), started 10th grade a size 14 and shorter than 5 ft i was ROUND. When my mom took me x-mas shopping guess what sixe I got a ...9. Can we say some activity but i so tried to stay out of P.E. it wasent the activity that done it. Now I've got 3 kids and I'm a nurse so coming back from vacation today.........I started my baby food diet today (something I should have done in Dec.) From what I recall I at a jar of cereal every other time and every 3 hours was a jar of fruit or veggies, and dont eat 4 hours before you sleep plus 2liters of h20 a day. Tip -NO splenda or artificial sweetners like those flavor packs they really make you crave harder. good luck and ill measure and back in a bit pls comment back thx

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.

i would really like to try this diet. it seems like the easiest one to stick to. it sounds like a lot of people have lost weight fast, and i got asked to be a model but i need to slim down a bit, im size 10, so im not huge im curvey but i want to be a size 8 so i'll do it for a month and see how it goes :)
if you dont agree, to all those people who commented hate mail. why the hell are you even on this website?

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?
