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.

This diet has been around for decades. It does work. My mother went on it in the 1960's and lost a whopping 60 pounds in just a few weeks. Remember diet and exercise were not mainstream yet in America culture yet.

I also have a friend who started having stomach troubles and switched to baby food for all of her meals. She lost 35 pounds in 3 weeks. With no exercise and no effort.

Here are some benefits:

1. Controls diet plan costs. This one thing may actually keep you on a diet!

2. Retrains your stomach to be full on small amounts of food at meal times.

3. Retrains your eye to see what a serving size is.

4. Easy to digest, and this is what really makes you lose the weight fast. No blocked intestines anymore.

5. Retrains your taste buds to foods with less salts, sugars, and other fake flavorings in processed foods.

6. Wide varieties of foods to choose from allowing dieter to mix and match. Dieters donâ??t suffer food cravings from missing out on their favorites like Turkey Noodle soup or

Chicken and rice dishes.

7. The baby food diet covers all the groups: vegetables, fruits, starches, proteins and desserts!

I am 25 years old I have Chrones Disease as well as an intolerance to gluten. My Dr. actually turned me onto baby food as a way to get the vitamins I need while easting something that is easy on my digestive system. I did not start eating baby food as a way to loose weight it just came off of me. I was 170 pounds when I started supplementing baby food for "adult" food. 2 months later I was just over 140 pounds. For breakfast I eat 1 jar of the fruit with a protein shake. Lunch 1 jar of fruit and 1/2 can of some kind of soup. For dinner I eat typically 1 jar of either the chicken and rice or salmon and a salad with some chicken on it. I do snack on an apple or orange if I get hungry throughout the day. This is an excellent way to implement nutrients into your diet and possibly loose weight if that's something you are looking to achieve.

I actually had to do this years ago when I was having major gall bladder attacks. I needed surgery to have my Gall Bladder removed but it was a very busy time for me work wise. The drs told me I had to go on a fat free diet so I wouldn't have any more attacks prior to scheduling the surgery. I can honesty say it works. I lost about 25lbs in about 6 weeks. The only problem is once you stop ,if you go back to your old eating habits the weight will come right back on. This should never be used long term.

I have been on this diet for a week now and It takes alot to get use too, I still find myself getting hungry in between. I have been eating 1/4 cup of baby oatmeal mixed with a small 4 oz jar of fruit ( Baby food ) 1/4 cup of hot water mixed in for breakfast, Lunch I eat a jar of meat or poultry with veggies and a jar of squash, I find it taste better if you warm the jars up in a pan of hot water. Then for dinner I eat a small portion sized adult meal like chicken breast with steamed veggies. I still get hungry inbetween meals and that is my down fall, I have to work on not muching in between the meals.

I would like to try this diet since none other has worked for me, the problem I have is being ridicueled by family and friends. I just don't think my husband would quite understand when we go grocery shopping and me putting baby food jars in the basket.

I went on this "diet" 30 years ago... after giving birth to my daughter... and having 40 pounds to lose! While feeding her, I'm reading the labels for nutrition (for her) and thought, "Hey! This is good stuff!" Ate a meat and veggie for each meal. had the fruit as a mid-meal snack... total of nine jars a day (three of each: meat, veggie, fruit). Evening snack was rice cakes, unsalted pretzels... something under 100 calories (for some carbs). Exercised with Richard Simmons every day... his workouts are fun! LOST 26 POUNDS in a month!
