Obesity is still on the rise in the world today, more and more people are looking for ways in which to lose weight. For the majority, something as drastic as gastric bypass surgery is just not an option, and so they are left jumping from one diet to the next, and never losing weight.
One of the problems is that some diets are just so complex, even someone with a degree would struggle to understand it. Other diets involve just eating one type of food, which is not good for the human body, as it needs protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals in order to survive. So when the Baby Food Diet first appeared, many people were naturally wary of it. However, there are many positive reports on the internet and in the media about this new diet.
Well one person that has reportedly found success with this diet is a Hollywood A-lister Jennifer Aniston, and she now highly recommends it. Although it may not seem like a natural thing to do, the diet is based on eating baby food. One thing about baby food is that it contains a balance of food, minerals and vitamins to help a baby maintain good health and grow, but without putting on weight in the form of fat. So the principle is that if it is good enough for a baby, then it should have the same benefits for a human.
One of the bonuses of this diet is that you do not have to worry about measuring out food portions as they are already done for you. It is essential though that you do not start eating jar after jar of baby food as that will not help with weight loss. You need to maintain a balance in the diet to ensure that your body is still getting a basic level of nutrients to survive, but not too much that it will be converted and stored as fat. There are different baby foods, and it is recommended that those in the 12 to 18 month range are used, as they have a better balance in them, also stick to the larger jars.
Whether you warm the food up or not depends on your personal preference. These days there are a large number of baby food varieties, so choice is not a problem, but vary it daily, do not stick to eating the same type every day. Some sites will tell you to eat when hungry, while others will tell you to stick to specific meal times. The way that seems to work best is sticking with normal meal times, and just snacking on a small jar of baby food if you feel hungry in between.
• The diet ensures that you are eating the correct proportion of vegetables and fruits. A lot of people tend to miss normally these out, or just do not eat enough of them.
• As long as you stick to one jar per meal, then you should start to lose weight.
• Baby food is clear of all unnatural additives.
• One thing that many people have a problem with when dieting is cravings. By eating a small jar to fill the gap, you are getting all the nutrients that you need.
• Adults need a lot of fiber, and these foods do not supply it.
• The cost of a jar is a lot more than if you cooked it yourself.
The Baby Food Diet is not for everyone, but it is one of those things that works for some and not for others, but unless you try it, then you will never know.
