The baby food diet is a fad weight loss diet created by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. The dietary plan makes use of pureed baby food and its low caloric content. The small jars of baby food can help maintain portion control, which could lead to weight loss in some dieters. The baby food can be eaten as a nutritious snack between meals or even as a meal replacement.

There is not any specific set of rules or guidelines for the dieter to follow while on the baby food diet. Some dieters choose to eat normal portions of regular food three times a day and snack on baby food. Others might choose to replace meals with three or four jars of baby food. There also are not any guidelines set for exercise in the baby food diet, but nutritionists recommend exercise along with dieting in order to lose weight effectively.

There are a number of benefits from the baby food diet. First of all, baby food is packed with vitamins and is free of additives. Baby food also does not contain any antibiotics or growth hormones. There are various flavors to choose from, and the portions are small, which can help dieters avoid the temptation of overeating. Some baby food products are gluten-free, and others are organic.

There are also some potential problems with the baby food diet. Some nutritionists believe that eating small portions of low-calorie baby food could result in binging later on in the day. Additionally, restricting caloric intake to less than 1,200 calories a day can slow the metabolism, which will encourage calories to be stored in the body as fat, which will act against weight loss. Also, some dieters might not feel full or satisfied eating only baby food, which involves very little chewing. Finally, most baby food products are extremely bland in taste, which might turn off many dieters.
