Healthy Eating Horoscopes

Your Perfect Diet is in the Stars

Page 1 of 4
When it comes to cooking and eating healthy foods, you might not reach your goals if you're following a plan that goes against your true nature and personality. If you're spontaneous, then meal plans might make you feel stifled, while an outgoing personality won't stick to a diet plan that involves cooking a lot of meals solo, for example. If you're struggling to make a healthy diet work for you, then reach for the stars! Check out these healthy eating horoscopes that will give you pointers based on the nature of your astrological sign.

Aries: March 21 – April 20
Aries are known for taking initiative. So don’t wait any longer! Learn more about proper nutrition and craft the perfect plan for you. If you’re craving pomegranates but your local produce section is sorely lacking, talk to the manager. If you want them, lots of other people probably want them too. As an idea person, you can take a little bit of this and a little bit of that that from your cupboard to create a new recipe. You may discover a new family favorite! You are all about inspiration and imagination, so if your meals are getting a little boring, mix things up by adding some new, exotic ingredients to your menu. Experiment with ethnic spices, instead of relying on the same meals week after week. You might find you’re satisfied with less on your plate if what you eat is extra flavorful.

Taurus: April 21 – May 21
The physical, sensual side of life is very important to the Taurus, and meals are one way to express that sensuality. Good food and good wine are as essential as air to you, but don’t let yourself get stuck in the high-fat trap. Wean yourself off full-fat milk and cheeses to save hundreds of calories without sacrificing flavor. Nurture your earthy side by planting your own vegetable garden and enjoying fresh, homemade soups and salads, with ingredients grown with your own hands. While some people might find you bull-headed, your reputation for being stubborn can be a good thing—you won’t give up on your weight loss goals, even if they’re taking longer than you expected.

Gemini: May 22 – June 23
As a Gemini, you value the thought process, so put on your thinking cap this week and design a meal plan you can stick with. Let go of your need to follow a diet perfectly—adjust it to suit your palette. Satisfy your analytical side by keeping a food journal to assess your dietary habits. If you're eating more calories than you thought, switch to a smaller plate for instant portion control and stop reading at the table—you need to pay attention while you’re eating. You’re interested in people around the world, so indulge your curiosity by learning about French cuisine and then whip up a meal fit for a king!

  • I am so disappointed that a site that purports to offer sound scientific advice would offer a horoscope article without any disclaimers. I can only hope this was an April Fools' joke but again, it's not marked as such. What's next, an "Eat for Your Blood Type" suggestion? How about "What Your Shoelaces Say About Your Diet Plans"??? - 10/26/2014 12:22:21 PM
  • Don't read the horoscope anymore. - 10/26/2013 11:00:35 AM
  • Timothy, how about don't read articles that you find so offensive. No one is forcing you to read this article. JUST SMILE, Buddy. Its just for fun. - 10/30/2012 2:28:53 AM
    I am a Virgo and I found the comments to be true to my sign. I don't conduct my life around my horoscope of course, but I did find the comments to be true and accurate pertaining to myself. - 8/5/2012 1:49:07 PM
  • AAAAAAgggggghhhhh

    Horrorscopes ar just about the stupidest thing to post on a site that purports to have a common sense scientific approach to fitness and weight losss. I cannot think of one thing in the maistream that is less scienific than horrorscopes.

    We must kill these stupid things once and for all.

    And anyone who comments one their teaits based on the date of their birth is ... I'm going to say it ... STOO-PID and they need a podcast that tells them to breathe in/breath out.

    Sorry, I'm going all Keith Olberman on this and foaming at the mouth.

    God this is a stupid article! - 2/24/2012 9:15:46 AM
  • You guys who are criticizing the article are taking this way too seriously. Horoscopes are just for fun! - 9/25/2011 11:39:48 PM
    OK - I don't think that the horoscopes for fitness or food were dead on, but the fitness stuff was interesting - and I think the advice for all signs is interesting in general, so I'm going to give it a go..... I'm a Capricorn who is "according to those in the know" more like a Saggitarius - go figure!
    Anyway, all good fun and advice! - 7/26/2011 10:38:20 PM
  • Not to be disrespectful, but this is totally inaccurate! I don't believe in Horoscopes, but it can be fun to read knowing they are so general they could apply to anyone. For me, Pisces, it is completely false in every regard! Sorry!! - 7/21/2011 3:05:09 PM
  • I am a Virgo with a Leo rising and found both the healthy eating and fitness horoscopes to be right on with me. I am going to send these on to my daughter as she fits both of her signs. - 7/21/2011 11:28:13 AM
  • Meh - I'm not really into horoscopes, I've never fit my sign (Sagitarius/Capri
    corn cusper) as I'm very much a creature of habit who likes structure. This is why SP appeals to me so much, as it really makes me feel like I can plan my weightloss, be in control of my own destiny, etc. I found some tips I liked in Libra though :) - 9/16/2010 9:39:47 AM
  • Horoscopes usually don't fit me, but this is exactly right. FUN! - 8/2/2010 5:11:05 PM
  • interesting...I feel exactly the opposite for this article as I did the astrology exercising article...Cancer (me) was right on here; love seafood, especially dipping crab meat in melted butter (yummy! lol) and I'm all about family sit down dinners (and breakfast!). However, I found Scorpio (hubby) to be repetitive of the exercise article and less about diet. Anyway, I enjoyed reading both! - 7/22/2010 3:09:45 PM
  • I read both Leo and Libra. Leo was more accurate for me on this, especially for the fitness one. Leo is my rising sign, and Libra is my sun sign (and moon sign & about 5 other planets.) - 7/21/2010 5:05:09 PM
  • I am a libra, my husband is a cancer. How amazing these forecasts are. I was really amazed. - 7/21/2010 5:02:47 PM
  • Check out your moon sign, if you know it... rules what you like to eat and how. Dead on for my moon sign.

    I was dreading the ever-popular Cancer-in-a-nutsh
    ell nonsense about how I should love cooking and gardening and family. I can't STAND any of that - would rather stick a fork in my eye. So this was surprisngly on, about the seafood and all. Love seafood, of all kinds.

    Fun article!
