I’ve always been skeptical about just how much babies enjoy all those funny looking foods served in very small jars.
Apart from their colors, which are quite nice, I understand that the taste isn’t that great (that’s what I’ve been told, I don’t have a kid of my own).
However, you would never believe what I discovered today: there is actually an entire diet based on baby food! I wouldn’t have believed it myself, but there are actually people who allegedly used this diet and lost weight. And not just regular people, I’m talking about celebrities, such as Jennifer Aniston.
This odd diet was created by Tracy Anderson, a former dancer and trainer to famous people. She even developed a so-called “method” on how to healthily lose weight and stay fit.
Moreover, she created the Baby Food Diet. At a first look, it’s a simple diet, you don’t have to keep track records or do complicated things. You just replace your ordinary meals with baby food… 14 jars of it, to be exact. You can still have a normal meal per day. Or, if you can’t do it like this, you can still have regular adult meals, but whenever you feel like having a snack, you just stick to baby food jars.
The idea behind this diet is simple: it teaches you to feast on very small portions and obtain satiety by eating just a small dish…or jar. Because we’re talking about baby food, the benefits are quite obvious: such food contains necessary minerals and other substances which should provide you with what you need in order to stay healthy. It doesn’t contain too much sugar or salt, nor harmful preservatives.
However, keep in mind that it’s just baby food, created for babies, not adults. So what may be satisfactory for babies may not offer to adults the necessary quantity of nutrients. That’s one of the reasons why the Baby Food Diet it’s a fad diet. They say that you might even end up eating too many jars. Besides, eating baby food is much too easier and effortless than eating regular meals. So, the time you take on chewing and the application you put into it contribute to your feeling of fullness. The Baby Food Diet doesn’t offer a substitute for this feeling in any way.
However, one thing is sue: using baby food jars for keeping away from high-calorie snacks. So don’t shy away from carrying a jar of baby food in your purse – if you feel like eating some chips, dig into that small jar and maybe the craving will go away!
