Is the Baby Food Diet Right For You?
Before you decide to start the Baby Food Diet, you need to be honest with yourself and decide whether or not you have the discipline required to stick with this diet. While many nutrition experts feel this diet will work in theory, most do not think the average adult will be able to stick to a diet consisting of mainly baby food for more than a few days.
One of the reasons why these experts do not feel the Baby Food Diet will be a diet plan that sticks around for a long time is the fact that adults receive a lot of psychological benefits when they chew their food. These benefits include feelings of fullness and satiety. When you eat only pureed baby food, you will not get these feelings and may actually feel hungrier than when you started eating, which could lead to overeating the baby food and reducing your chances of losing weight.
In theory, the Baby Food Diet should help you lose weight as it eliminates high calorie foods from your daily diet. However, if you know that you will not be able to stick to eating only baby food whenever you want a snack, it is best to find a different diet that meets your needs.
On the other hand, if you are a strong willed person with a lot of self-discipline, the Baby Food Diet may be your secret to weight loss.
