Rainy Day Blues & The Baby Food Diet?!

17 May

Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day (preferably when I can sleep in, thanks).


This pouring rain is not conducive to my productivity today.  At all.  Since my attitude is crappy, I knew I needed something really yummy for breakfast:

The answer was a yogurt mess with vanilla Greek yogurt, a crushed-up chocolate wafer, a banana, and some coconut.  For some reason, I do not like my bananas cold, and I left my banana in my lunchbox in the fridge for too long L  When it’s cold, it gets too mushy, and it makes me think of baby food.  Not appetizing.  It’s okay if I cut it up and mix it into yogurt or oatmeal though.

Speaking of baby food, have you heard about this new baby food diet craze?  Supposedly it’s the newest “rage” among the Hollywood Starlets dying to be thin.  Creator Tracey Anderson claims this “cleanse” allows the crash dieter to lose 5lbs in a week without “suffering”.  I guess it all depends on your definition of suffering. While I love oatmeal, fruit smoothies, sweet potatoes and bananas, eating them in a pureed form a la Gerber is vomit inducing at best.  One of the suspected followers, Jennifer Aniston, released a statement regarding the rumors:

“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.” (Source)

Keep in mind, this diet was created by Gwyneth Paltrow’s trainer – the same woman who believes women should never use more than 3lb weights. I would definitely take it with a grain of salt.

Would you try the baby food diet?  What crazy fad diets have you tried in the past?

I considered the Master Cleanse before the wedding…. But then I remembered: I like food.
