Camila Alves Talks Yummy Spoonfuls Business and Father's Day

Of all of the fad diets in Hollywood, Camila Alves might just have the craziest.

The actress, who has two kids with Matthew McConaughey, recently dished her surprising weight loss secret: baby food.

When Alves first co-founded a preservative-free organic baby food company, Yummy Spoonfuls, she didn't expect to become hooked herself -- and she now downs three-to-four pouches of pureed fruits and veggies a day, according to Delish.

"I did a cleanse, and there were a lot of pureed meals, and my body just agreed with it. It wasn't realistic to do all pureed meals, so I do a combination," she told Delish in an interview.

Alves, who suffers from bloating like most women, thaws three pouches of one of the company's veggie flavors, and sautees the mush with olive oil and spices to add flavor. She uses sea salt, freshly-ground pepper and turmeric for seasoning.

"I was getting really swollen in my stomach area, so I felt my digestive system needed a break," she said.

With abs like these, it might actually be worth a shot!
