One man’s meat is another’s poison.
But, have you ever wondered why? Well, your zodiac sign may be at the helm of it. Yes, Your. Very. Own. ZODIAC SIGN! See what the stars and planets say about your health and the food you prefer:
Diet for the Fire Signs:
- Aries (March 21 – April 19):
When it comes to food, seldom does the Aries follow the body’s will. People born under this sun sign tend to have strong muscles and a lot of energy. But, they also like to overeat and overlook the quality of food.
A general advice for the Aries is, eat a lot of proteins and red meat. Consume cooked vegetables as they are rich in vitamin supply. Brown rice, fruits, olives, onions, leafy vegetables, broccoli, beans, walnuts, pumpkins, garlic, and mustard, are just the food for you. Avoid spices and alcohol.
- Leo (July 23 – August 22):
The common notion is a Leo never falls ill. But, the truth is his health is as fragile as his heart. The lion is very prone to hypertension, heart risks, and back pain. He is a frequent sufferer of headache and migraines.
The lion should have a lot of whole grains, Vitamin-C rich food, rice, apples, peaches, potatoes, radishes and carrots, leafy vegetables, and nuts. Spicy food and dairy products don’t suit his tummy.
- Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Eating and you are like blood brothers. You eat like you breathe, or even vice versa. This is why you are a healthy person overall. However, like the Aries, you tend to overeat, or eat as you please. Keep a check on that!
Consume more of whole grains and cereals. Apples, oranges, pears, and strawberries should be a part of your diet unfailingly. Other than that, root vegetables, onions, and garlic are also important. Remember to avoid sweets, alcohol, and refined sugar.
Diet for the Air Signs:
- Gemini (May 21 – June 21):
The Gemini is a nervous soul. But, he is quick in his actions, and very adaptive. Moreover, because he is ever curious, he has a habit of trying out new dishes. However, because of this restlessness and enthusiasm, a Gemini is very prone to diseases of the bronchial tubes.
Cooking does not interest him. He is more inclined towards fast food, and can manage to stay on an empty stomach for a very long time. Neither of these is healthy. So, Gemini, why not resort to a diet of fruits and vegetables, instead?
Have oranges, grapefruit, plums, lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, almonds, yogurt, and fish. Avoid coffee, refined sugar, and root vegetables.
- Libra (September 23 – October 22):
If you are a Libra, you have to pay special attention to your kidneys. Other than that, you cannot handle crisis and tend to freak out. And, because you are very prone to panic attacks, your body suffers in response to your action.
However, a Libran is always brooded about his waistline and easily falls prey to fashionable diet regimes. The nutritional value of food does not bother him. This habit has to be taken care of immediately. Be reasonable in your diet selection.
Include fibrous food in your meals and make fruits and vegetables an indispensable part of your diet. Have oats, grapes, raisins, spinach, peas, corns, cheese, nuts and yogurt. Avoid alcohol, carbonated beverages, and yeasty food.
- Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Aquarian, you neglect your health like no one else does. Because of this, your venous circulation is often poor. Please remember that your body craves for attention, too! Try to include spices and herbs in your diet and limit your consumption of alcohol, meat, and aerated drinks.
In general, an Aquarian’s meal should regularly include apples, oranges, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, nuts, soya beans, and broccoli. Coffee and refined sugar are to be avoided at all costs.
Diet for the Water Signs:
- Cancer (June 22 – July 22):
A Cancerian is inseparable from emotions, and hence, is ruled by anxiety and stress. Tummy upsets and bloating, therefore, are very common. Try to include fish in your diet and remember to chew your food properly.
Have whole grains, oats, rye, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, tomatoes, beans, beets, yogurt, and natural sugars. Avoid oily food, because oil and water can never come to a mutual settlement. Also, steer clear of sweets and excess salt.
- Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
The scorpion is very passionate about food, and lazy about dieting and exercise. This fervour is so much that it often ends up ruining his health. However, he is more like the phoenix, who approaches the blazing sun to burn out and rise again from its own ashes.
You must consume food that gives you energy. Try spices and condiments. Eat fruits, bananas, cherries, currant, coconut, mango, cauliflower, onions, beans, lentils, cucumbers, tomatoes and almonds. Avoid oily food, refined sugar, and salt.
- Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
A Piscean is a sensitive being and doesn’t have much knowledge about his body. He is pessimistic at heart, which makes his metabolism slow down. His health is hugely rules by his emotions and psychological state of mind. However, his healing powers are superb.
People born under this zodiac sign love to eat seafood and fish. They also like to eat cucumbers, melons, and any fruit which is rich in water content. But, they are lazy and often believe in short cuts, which hamper health.
A Piscean should eat wheat and whole grains. His diet must include rice, oats, fruits and vegetables. Eating onions and dates should also be considered. Coffee, salt, sweets, oily food, and refined sugar should be avoided.
Diet for the Earth Signs:
- Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
The Taurus nauseates very easily. No, he doesn’t have a bad metabolism. In fact, it is a very active one. However, negative thoughts and feelings often lead to digestion issues and hormonal imbalance.
Your body requires a healthy diet, which can provide you the much-needed energy. Remember to count on whole grain cereals, cauliflower, pumpkin, beets, radishes, onions, spinach, and fenugreek. Avoid heavy meals.
- Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
The Virgo is very health conscious. He reads up books and watches videos on dietetics. He discusses food and likes to learn about the nutrition value of dishes. This is why Virgos make great dietitians. However, you are a bag of nerves and thus, very prone to irritable bowels. Another critical thing is you tend to impose diet regimes on yourself, which keeps you away from a fixed routine.
A piece of advice to all the Virgos out there – stick to a regular diet that includes whole grains and cereals, fruits, oats, leafy vegetables, lemon, tea, soups, spices, and almonds. However, avoid heavy meals and chocolate.
- Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
Because this zodiac sign is ruled by Saturn, people born under it are very reasonable about food consumption. Healthy food attracts you and you prefer simple, sober food over weird dishes. However, such preferences often lead to fragility of bones and weakness. Also, because you don’t like the Sun much, you are prone to Vitamin D deficiency, too.
The Capricorn, hence, must enough dairy products and a lot of calcium. Eat plenty of rice, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Your diet should include spices, corn, potatoes, soups, sprouts, and lemons. However, avoid excessive spicy food and chocolate.
If your zodiac sign can speak for your personality, there’s no reason why it cannot ascertain your food preference. The planets that rule your fate, rule your taste buds, too! However, you must not entirely give in to the decision of your zodiac.
Eat well and take care of your health. It’s a dynamic process and you must learn how to adjust your lifestyle accordingly!
