The Baby Food Diet

Dieting can really take a toll on someone who has never tried to seriously lose weight before. This is the reason why so many dieting attempts fail – the effort needed to lose the extra pounds is just too much for someone who has a regular day job.

The baby food diet solves this problem by providing a way for dieters to get just the right amount of calories in every meal. The baby food diet is rumored to have been started by female Hollywood celebrities.

It has been hailed as an effective cleansing diet that can be used alongside other diets as well. And the best thing about this diet is you can actually prepare all the food you need at home, with a minimum of fuss. All you need are the ingredients (mainly, the fruits and vegetables) and a blender.

In some cases, you may have to lightly cook the food, but in most cases, you just have to blend the ingredients so you can get a puree. Pureeing is the easiest way to produce baby food at home, so we recommend that unless you have a lot of time to spare, stick to ingredients that don’t have to be baked, boiled, or simmered.

But if you do have a lot of time to devote to the preparation of the baby food, you’re free to use ingredients like squash (which require baking or boiling prior to pureeing).

Just remember to store the baby food in re-sealable containers so you can easily reheat the food later. Small, microwaveable containers are an excellent choice when it comes to storing baby food.

Another important guideline that you have to remember is to always portion your baby food so you don’t overeat. Stick to a single serving every one to two hours, so you have full control over your calories.

It has been found that some people actually binge, or overeat, baby food because they feel a little hungrier than usual. You can avoid this by eating more frequently throughout the day (but stick single servings always).

Creating great baby food recipes at home

The easiest baby food recipes are the ones that require only one to two ingredients. Baby carrots are an excellent choice because these veggies are tender and easy to puree.

Carrots are also nutrient-dense vegetables, so you know you are getting enough vitamins and minerals with every spoonful. You can also try popular fruits, such as pineapples and mangoes (or combine the two) – just make sure that you don’t overeat.

Some fruits are high in fructose or fruit sugars, so, if you overeat, you may end up taking in more sugar calories than required.

We’re not saying you shouldn’t use fruit – just make sure that you don’t purposefully create large portions, just because you love the taste of the fruits you are using. You can use vegetables, such as squash, as the “base” of a recipe – you can add different ingredients later on such as bananas or pears.
