What is your Zodiac sign's favorite food?
March 21 - April 19
Your fave food is probably bread – all kinds of bread. There’s nothing better for you than a nice thick baguette… or some sourdough… or some brioche… Etc., etc. If we can list pizza as a kind of bread, avoiding this kind of food gets even more difficult (it’s practically impossible to say no to pizza even if you’re not an Aries native!)
So, what to do? Certainly, you can’t give it up completely, can you? Astrology tells you to slice it thinner – and you’ll go thinner as well! It might sound like a pretty generic piece of advice but trust us: you’re probably not as hungry as you think, so thinner slices will suffice.
April 20 - May 20
Salty snacks are probably your guilty pleasure, Taurus native. You can’t eat just one when it comes to chips, popcorn, crackers, or pretzels. If you’re in the right mood, the whole bag is at risk. And your waist is at risk, too! Those chips look so tasty that you completely forget about your diet and just eat them all.
Your tactile nature considers taste to be one of the most important of all senses. It’s impossible for you to stop drowning your emotions in some tasty snacks. So, here’s your (a bit generic) way out: try buying smaller bags. Astrology and common sense say it’ll help you lose some weight.
May 21 - June 20
Gemini native, you do lots of things fast, and fast food fits perfectly into your schedule. It’s practically impossible for you to say no to your favorite burgers and fries. And probably ice cream. But you know that fast food can do some nasty things to your weight and waist.
A Big mac and fries together are over a thousand calories – and that’s without cheese! So, how about doing your burger party at home with some lettuce, tomatoes, and pickle – oh, and without a bun – for no more than 300 calories. Seriously, try using this lifehack from time to time – it can do wonders for your weight.
June 21 - July 22
Cancer native, your guilty pleasure is comfort foods. You could curl up with your favorite comfort food any night of the week. But you probably already know that eating them every night can do some nasty things to the number on the scale. So, why not try something lighter instead of mac and cheese?
Astrology tells you to try some salads – trust us, they can be as tasty as your favorite comfort food. Or almost as tasty… Try different sauces, turn salad making into an art. Turn on your favorite music while you’re chopping those tomatoes and lettuce, have fun, and be healthy!
July 23 - August 22
Leo, you probably want a full meal in the evening – and the more courses the better. After all, that’s how royals eat! But pretty often you don’t realize when you’re completely full until it’s too late. The result is your overstuffed belly – and it does nothing good to the number on the scales and messes up your sleep time.
So, what to do to avoid eating too much? Try eating very, veeery slowly. Savor each morsel. The benefits of slow eating include better digestion, better hydration, easier weight loss, and greater satisfaction with your meals. Why not try this easy lifehack tonight, Leo native?
August 23 - September 22
Virgo native, admit it, you just love cookies. Remember those cookies you made with your mom? The smell of them baking, licking the batter from the hand blender… What can be better than this? Buying cookies feels as good as cooking them, though. And you buy them quite often, Virgo!
In fact, most cookies would not be that bad for your health and weight if they weren’t so enormous. So, what to do to stay slim and healthy? Try buying something smaller or a 100 calorie pre-packaged treat. Or just cook your cookies yourself and try to make them smaller and healthier!
September 23 - October 23
Libra native, you probably just love cheese. It’s so versatile, it knows no borders: a good American slice melted over your tuna sandwich, or a wheel of brie served on a silver platter. Nothing can be better than cheese. Unfortunately, it sometimes can be a bit too rich and affect your weight in a bad way.
Choosing a low-fat version of your favorite cheese can be a good option. Trust us, it can be almost as tasty as the regular version and it can do wonders to your weight and waist! For example, one low-fat mozzarella stick has only 80 calories and provides 7 grams of protein and 222 mg of calcium.
October 24 - November 22
Scorpio native, you just love baked goods. Gooey brownies, flaky biscuits, apple pies – they all are so good it’s almost impossible to resist them. You enjoy cooking them, buying them and, most importantly, eating them – and when you start eating them, you don’t stop until it’s too late.
Good news, Scorpio native, because low-calorie versions of your favorite baked goods exist and they taste almost as good as regular ones. Just substitute light margarine for butter, or egg whites for whole eggs – or buy low-cal versions at your local store. Your waist will be grateful.
November 23 - December 21
Sagittarius native, you’re a pizza person. Nothing can be better than a slice of nice cheese pizza! Or two slices… Or even three… You have lots of wonderful associations with pizza. Think of all the times you’ve sat around the table with your friends and enjoyed a large pepperoni pizza. Or some other kind of pizza.
It’s probably impossible for you to say no to this temptation, so you should try stopping at one piece. It sounds terrible, but if you eat it slowly and fill up on unsweetened ice tea between bites it can be almost as good as a whole pizza. And it certainly is better for your weight and waist, Sagittarius native!
December 22 - January 19
Capricorn native, you’re a devout ice cream lover. Nothing can be better for you than a nice ice cream – any kind of it. Green tea ice cream… Butter pecan caramel ice cream… Ice cream with Grape-Nuts breakfast cereal… And so many more. Even reading their description can be a mouthwatering experience for you.
So, how about saving ice cream for special occasions? Like, once a month. It sounds brutal, but your waist will be grateful to you for this sacrifice. Another way to enjoy some ice cream and don’t get too fat while doing so is to make your own ice cream using your own ingredients. What if your own ice cream is even tastier than those you buy?
January 20 - February 19
Aquarius native, your favorite comfort food is peanut butter. This insanely delicious food has been around since mankind has had the tools to crush a nut. Hundreds of generations of humans have delighted in this high-calorie food getting stuck to the roof of their mouths. The man who invented peanut butter was probably an Aquarius.
And you know what? You can still enjoy your favorite food without gaining too much weight because its low-calorie version exists! Try Better n’ Peanut Butter – it features 85% less fat, 40% fewer calories, and 100% great taste. Time to visit your local store and buy that beautiful low-cal stuff!
February 20 - March 20
Pisces native, you’re dreamy, thoughtful, and you just love chocolate. It’s difficult to meet a Piscean who dislikes chocolate and everything chocolate flavored. Chocolate might be the most popular flavor in the world due to folks born under your beautiful sign. Chocolate rules. Eating it feels like biting into love and happiness.
Chocolate changes the very chemistry of the person eating it, so it would be unreasonable to stop eating it. But it can do nasty things to the number on the scales… Don’t worry, though – there’s a solution. Try trading your milk chocolate for bite-sized, individually wrapped squares of lower-fat dark chocolate.
