Celebrity Fans: Lady Ga Ga, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are reportedly fans of this diet.
What’s it all about? This diet calls for eating just up to 14 jars of pureed food or baby food every day or mostly pureed food or baby food and one adult meal or pureed food or baby food instead of snacks.
BDA Verdict: The Ga Ga should be for babies only! This diet works on portion control and guess what? Yes, restricted calories, as a jar of baby food has very few. Although fruit and veg are included they are pureed so have much less fibre and texture. Chewing food is associated with feelings of fullness and satiety, so reach for an apple or a carrot rather than a jar. Also, how anti-social would you be whipping out your jars of baby food and a top restaurant?
