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.

Common Misspellings

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 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??

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?

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?

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.

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.

Hi, Kristie/Brooke

A stone is UK measurement and equates to 14lbs.

Hope this explains!

Good luck

Kristi

Brooke - i believe a stone is a Chinese measurement of weight. similar to "pounds" being a prodominently US-used measurement of weight.

posted May 5th, 2010 6:34 pm


Brooke

ok, what is stone? everybody keeps saying they lost stone?? im so confused.. but i'll definately be trying this out :D

Of course if you eat like a baby you will loose weight BUT there is a reason for digestion of different textures. You don't want your intestines to get lazy and not work to full capacity once you start eating normally again. Face it...... you can't live on baby food forever and dine out eating baby food. Think about it. Maybe a quick weight loss fix but could be a lifetime medical disruption.
