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.

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.
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.

i have just satrted two days ago and wow! i have to say i love it! i have lost 5lbs and the food is good but yes stay away from the meals just stay with the fruits and vegies! good luck to all of you!

ive started this diet 6 days ago. i ate normally over the weekend but i have still noticed a half inch loss on my waist and tummy. i use measurements as easier to record and monitor than wieght, as if you have more muscle mass or begin to exercise more this can skew your change. i eat two slices of toast in the morning 2-3 pots of baby food throughout the day, and a normal healthy tea.

this does seem like a very good diet, and when i have more time in the next few weeks i will begin to go runnin at least 3-4 times a week, so the weight should hopefully fall off quite rapidly, and i'll build muscle tone to help keep it off!

my only reccommendation is that you buy the 'pudding' and dessert baby food jars as the blended savoury foods are simply disgusting, cant eat them (i am not a fussy eater) but it puts me off the diet!
stick to the sweet baby foods and it should be ok! annoying that i wasted money on savoury ones, but at least i now know!
Good luck everyone!

This is just silly. Just eat normal portions of real food. A real carrot has, what, 25 calories in it? Plus a load of fiber which your body needs.

After reading about this diet both positive and negative comments i've decided to try it.there's nothing wrong with a quick fix where you can see fast results to motivate you to continue with a healthy lifestyle.for those who say quick fixes arent good i say it is better to lose weight fast than being overweight and at risk of serious ilnesses..so today was day 1 for me.i stocked on hipp organic stage 1.all different types..banana custard...apple and pear,creamy porridge,beef hotpot...shepperds pie..i think i got nearly all of them lol..i had 1 pot for breakfast 1 as a snack 1 for lunch 1 snack 1 dinner and 1 snack..so 6 in total..i feel nourished and light.. none of that bloated feeling after eating certain foods...the flavour is quite nice(especialy the fruitty ones) a little bland in some but edible..and i didnt crave any other foods which i normaly do when doing other diets...its great not having to weigh food or count points..no cooking involved(no washing up!!!) so more time to do other things like exercise...so far im happy..i wont know how well it works til a few days from now but i will come back and share my progress..i have around 20 lbs to lose...its very convenient and would fit even in the busiest lifestyle..you can carry them everywhere..and if you take the label of it no one will know you are eating 'baby food' it looks like a yogurt pot..i hope my comment is helpful to anyone thinking of starting this diet..good luck with it..i'll be back soon to let you all know how it went for me..xx

i tryed it 2 weeks before i went on holiday,i had only 3jars a day n 1 small bowl of food for dinner.

so its good for a short term fix

I want to try this diet. I Have a wedding in 3 months and I need to drop some weight for it. After that I will continue to eat healthy, but will probably not be doing this the rest of my life. I need to drop the weight fairly quickly. I probably won't eat baby food for all meals, but will incorporate chicken, cottage cheese, lots of water,Fruit &salad etc. to keep me fully satisfied. I hope this works.

Can anyone recommend the types of TASTY baby food? I know the banana baby food is good because we buy them for snacks sometimes, but what other flavors or fruit, veggie and entree are good??

posted May 11th, 2010 12:12 pm



I started this morning. So far I've only eaten 4 jars, 2 for breakfast and 2 for lunch.
I'm starving. Are we really allowed to eat up to 14 jars and have a sensible dinner?
That seems like a LOT of baby food.

I am going to start this diet when i get back from vacation on Monday. I know exactly what I'm going to do daily, but does anyone have an idea of how many days/weeks you should do this? Or just until you're at a happy weight, then slowly work in regular healthy meals?

posted May 10th, 2010 1:20 pm



I really like this diet.
The baby food is not bad at all! IF you get fruits and veggies that taste good, you will enjoy eating them.
I stated about 3 days ago and its working well. This is my plan for a day.

Breakfast: Protein shake (170 calories) and a jar of baby food.

Lunch: 100 calorie Granola bar, bottle of water and jar of baby food.

Dinner: A full adult meal. Make sure it is portion controlled and not a binge meal.

The adult meal and either be lunch or dinner depending on how hungry you feel.
If you are having cravings between lunch and dinner, have a piece of fruit or baby puffs.
(The baby puffs are light, yet tastes good and are very low in calories and have a crunch that some may need through out the day)

This is how I do the diet and i like it a lot. Hoping to drop 15-20 lbs

Is this diet vegetarian friendly?

posted May 8th, 2010 7:26 pm


I heard on the radio.
you eat 14 bottles of baby food

and 1 healthy meal at night every day.

Jennifer Aniston is supposedly doing this.

posted May 6th, 2010 6:23 pm


Has anyone figured exactly how you're supposed to do this diet? We'd all like quick weight loss but I want to stay healthy too. Would like to lose about 20 lbs.
