Body By Baby Food - Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston appears to be aging in reverse. Her skin is beautiful, her body is amazing and her hair is the envy of every woman on the planet. So what's her secret? Is it the Baby Food Cleanse?

The Baby Food Cleanse was created by Aniston’s personal trainer Tracy Anderson.  Anderson is also the miracle worker responsible for the bodies of Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow. Anderson’s diet plan involves eating 14 servings of baby food a day followed by a healthy 'adult' dinner.  Supposedly, Anniston has lost seven pounds in the past week, but the average is five.

I know this sounds crazy but I’m really intrigued.  Most celebrity diets are scary to say the least, but this one kind of makes sense to me. Portions are small, yet sweet enough to help control cravings and avoid binges.  Plus, you’re constantly eating; 14 jars a day - approximately 1 jar every half hour - and a healthy dinner seems like enough food to keep you satisfied and losing weight.  Also, there are many interesting flavors to choose from; peach cobbler, blueberry, cherry, banana, carrot, pear, squash, etc.  (I like the sweet stuff.) And, given that a baby’s digestive system is so immature, most brands of baby food are free of added fats and fillers, are full of vitamins, and are gluten-free.  Also, organic baby food is available everywhere so you can be sure that what you're eating doesn’t contain pesticides, genetically-modified ingredients, growth hormones, or antibiotics. 

Anderson’s objective when she designed this eating plan was to prevent her clients from gaining weight once they were done with their diet which is very common after a cleanse. She says, “I developed this diet where you can still eat.  I was very careful about the foods I chose to put in it; it's a lot of pureed foods.  When you do liquid cleanses you lose weight but you will gain more the next week. I wanted something where you can eliminate toxicity, and break bad habits but still have your digestive system going. That is when the baby food cleanse was born." 

See? Interesting. One problem though, Jennifer Anniston denies being on the baby food cleanse.  "I've been asked lately, Jen, what's this baby food diet all about? I kept thinking: That's the strangest question ever. Sorry, but the last time I had baby food, I believe I was one. I've been on solids for about 40 years now."  The actress credits her amazing body to a healthy diet and exercise. Anniston says, "I'm a realist. If I eat burgers and fries every day I won't get the parts I'm offered. I'd become a character actress.  That might be fine one day but not right now.”  She says her exercise routine includes a daily hour long cardio workouts, 4 to 5 hours of yoga a week, and healthy food.  She even claims to occasionally indulge in coffee, wine, and Mexican food.
