The Baby Food Diet

Apparently most men taste some of the milk intended for their child. Not directly from the ‘tap’ – that’s just weird – but at some point curiosity gets the better of us. I’m pretty sure it’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s probably best not to think about it too much.

Now that Adlai has moved into (semi-) solid food, I’ve been enjoying sampling a greater depth of baby food. Last night for instance Adlai and I enjoyed lukewarm potato and carrot purée. The good thing about baby food is that it doesn’t have any junk in it – no added salt or sugar. So it’s good for you. Of course it tastes like air and you look weird eating it but it is good for you…sort of.

After a bit of research I discovered that there is such a thing as ‘The Baby Food Diet’, in which adults eat 15 tubs of baby food a day. According to the ever-reliable Internet, Jennifer Aniston and Cheryl Cole swear by it and you can lose 15 lbs. in a week, which obviously sounds healthy. However before you start to purée every vegetable you can get your hands on, there are two things you should know:

1. This diet causes extreme constipation.

2. It’s weird.

So man up and go for a run. Baby food is not yours and it’s not the answer to your beer belly.
