New Fad Diet: “Baby Food”

For the Baby In All of Us

We all know that the freaksimeancelebrities in Hollywood have a deep need to look/feel/act as young as possible, but this new “Baby Food” diet that is supposedly all the rage with the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon seems like it’s going a bit too far with the age regression.

Basically, the “Baby Food” diet consists of eating, well, jars of baby food. Here are the requirements (also–wow, there is an entire website dedicated to reviewing diets?? Why am I surprised?):

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.

Another article insists that the regiment involves eating “14 jars a day, any type, and one real meal. Each jar of baby food contains about 80 calories. So that’s a total of 1120 calories a day from mashed foods.”

“The bottom line, all the nutritionists 9NEWS NOW spoke with say while this diet may help you drop a few quick pounds, drastically restrictive diets such as this one are not sustainable and can lead to yo-yo dieting. It’s a temporary fix to what should be a lifestyle change.”

Agreed. But is this diet nutritiously beneficial at all? What exactly are the Pros and Cons? Take it away, dietreview site

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

Um, may I add to this list please? How about: BABY FOOD IS FOR BABIES AND THUS YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT GET PROPER NUTRITION UNLESS YOU EAT A TON OF BABY FOOD EVERY SINGLE DAY!! And this diet does not sound enjoyable at all…only eating mushed up food? Save if for the nursing home.

One personal reviewer also commented that the main problem with this diet is that it “makes it hard to socialize…you can’t really have lunch with friends.” Um, unless you’re friends with BABIES!!! Then you can enjoy every meal in company. Hmmm….I love babies, so maybe I will try this diet after all.

    “…unless you’re friends with BABIES!!!” Baby friends are way judgmental. And they’re always showing way too much skin, making scenes in public, SO selfish…I say be strong, girlfriends, don’t let your baby friends push you around…they’re jerkfaces.

    Hmm…while I do think that babies are often the more enlightened of the two when it comes to celebrities, I can’t help but be amazed that these financially successful, vastly connected, star-studded people claim to prefer Baby Food as their meal ticket than– well let’s see, hmm, what are my options? I’m rich, I can afford any chef or nutrionist I want…– A WELL-BALANCED MEAL!! I mean are they really looking to cut costs and corners so much that they need to stock up on baby food?!? How about you just take the natural ingredients that are in baby food — what? Raw veggies, you say? Fresh fruits, no less?– and make it into a healthy, dare I saw PG-13 rated meal that requires a bit of adult-supervised mastication?
    Food in America has been broken down, built up, transformed, and revolutionized into everything but wholesome, digestible FOOD. To that I implore sagaciously– WTF, America?!? Get your damn head out of your arse!

    I have known several girls to do this with no shame about it. Its strange how hard humans seem to find moderation.
