Healthy Eating Horoscopes

Your Perfect Diet is in the Stars


Libra: September 23 – October 23
Because Libras need balance, you start to feel edgy and anxious when one part of life is taking over. Instead of trying to diet and exercise perfectly, lower your expectations a bit. Having an extra dessert once in a while is okay as long as it doesn’t become a habit. You instinctively know how to look at a complex situation and simplify it—why not use this ability to help your friends navigate the food label jungle? They could use your help deciphering how much fat is too much. You like to have your own way, so make sure you use this trait when you go out for meals. Don’t be afraid to ask for broiled chicken without sauce—you’re paying for the meal, so have it the way you want!

Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
As a Scorpio, you tend to feel guilty about not being perfect. It pains you to realize your diet is not as good as it should be. Remember that you’re human and everyone makes diet mistakes sometimes. Take it one meal at a time and realize that one slip up doesn’t mean your whole diet is ruined. If you ate too much chocolate today, forgive yourself and move on. Take satisfaction in knowing that you are working hard to achieve you diet goals. Remember that self-love is the first step towards happiness and you deserve the best in life--even if you never lose those last five pounds.

Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
If you’re a Sagittarius, you get real satisfaction by doing. So cook your own meals as often as possible. Combine that trait with your social side by trying a meal assembly kitchen, where you chop, blend and prep several recipes (along with other food lovers) for future use. An organized cooking class will make you feel claustrophobic however, so check out a new cookbook and learn how to make the meal of your dreams on your own. You’ll revel in a real sense of accomplishment when you taste the delectable recipe you prepared all by yourself. You love to broaden your horizons, so don’t limit yourself to eating the same meals every week. Herbs and spices are your friends, so visit an ethnic grocery store and stock up on some new ingredients for your culinary adventures.

  • 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!
