Diets for Every Horoscope Sign

Diet by sign to reach your weight loss goal

Here come the holidays, when over-indulgence is the name of the game. But no matter how many holiday pies and cookies tempt you to stray, you can stay healthy and reach your weight loss goals if you stick to the best diet for your horoscope sign. With so many diets to choose from, it's nearly impossible to decide which is right for you. But we can help. Astrology can whittle your waist!

We've taken a look at some of the most popular diets out there and matched them up with the most fitting horoscope signs, to help you find the diet that will work best with your personal preferences and natural inclinations -- and that will be easier to stick to.

Remember, this is merely a guideline. If a diet not listed under your horoscope sign sounds good, check it out. It may be that you have another key astrological planet or point in that sign. (Remember, too, to check with your physician before you start any diet, especially if you have special health needs or considerations.)

And regardless of which diet you choose, once you've started do your best to stick with it. A few weeks and a couple of inches will do wonders for the most important thing of all ... your attitude!

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The Atkins Diet

This diet seems tailor-made for Aries individuals. First of all, it's often described as perfect for "people who are willing to exercise in combination with dieting," and with all that red-hot energy you folks are famous for, exercise not only isn't a problem -- it's a given. Your lifestyle probably provides you with more daily "incidental" exercise than most of us get when we're working consciously at it for a full week -- and that's not to mention your innate love of adrenaline.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Glycemic Index

Sugar ... It's delightful, delicious and delovely -- and "owned" by Venus, the loveliest, sweetest planet of all, which just so happens to be your ruling planet. That said, be careful of how much sugar you ingest -- candy bars, pastries and even alcohol. For that reason, this is the diet for you. It's often recommended for diabetics (types 1 and 2). It's designed to balance your carbs, proteins and fats with your sugar intake -- and in the process, it gives you the energy you need to exercise while you're working toward your weight loss goal.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Weight Watchers

There aren't too many horoscope signs as famous for their gift of gab, or their knack for socializing with absolutely anyone under absolutely any circumstances. You, Gemini, hold the record -- it's uncontested. So when it comes to choosing a diet, you definitely won't want to do it alone, and Weight Watchers is the diet for you. So while you're busy counting calories and pounds as they melt away, you'll also be busy mixing and mingling. Sounds more like an ongoing party than a torture test, doesn't it?

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Nutrisystem

You, Cancer, are the caretakers of the zodiac. You're terrific at it, but often not as good at taking care of yourself, so this is definitely the diet plan for you. Food is delivered to your home, requires a minimum of preparation, and can be customized according to either your personal preferences or health-related issues. It's a time-saver, too -- and are there any Cancers on the planet who don't need an extra 45 minutes in every day?

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

The 6-Day Body Makeover

You're a Fire sign, Leo, and as such, not notoriously patient. So any diet that guarantees results in less than a week ... well, that's definitely going to catch your eager eye. In addition to providing results so quickly -- which is all you really needed to hear -- the 6-Day Body Makeover also gives you another wonderful Fire-sign gift: the inspiration to exercise -- something every Fire sign needs! But that goes double for you, Leo. With all that pizazz you're packing, if anyone needs an outlet for that energy, it's you and your firey cousins Aries and Sagittarius. Give this one a try. If nothing else, you'll love seeing the speedy results.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

The French Women's Diet

According to diet experts, French women manage to stay svelte and stylish by doing something that Americans definitely don't do: they eat small portions, never skip meals, choose their food carefully and take their time. The also never eat "on the run." They have the concept of eating to live (while enjoying it) down to a science, even if they dine at 10:00 p.m. and have wine with every meal. For all those reasons, the French Women's Diet definitely belongs to precise, meticulous, self-disciplined Virgo.

I'm excited to be going back on this. When I lived in Florida with my dad back in 2008 I went on something like this. I ate 2 to 3 grapefruits a day, plus 2 salads, and a reasonable dinner. I drank only water, and 1/2 of a Jose Cuervo with lime every day. I was outside all the time and I either walked everywhere, or when I couldn't I did what I could. I lost 30lbs easily in a month. I would have kept it off except I began eating artificial sugar again when I went back home to Ohio and married. I think I will do this again. I live in Bowling Green now so there are plenty of places to walk.

Planets As Teachers: Pluto

By Jeff Jawer

Pluto: the furthest and tiniest planet of all. In fact, this body is so small and far away that it lost its official status as a planet. However, that doesn't change the astrological fact that Pluto packs a significant punch. Named after the mythological lord of the underworld, it was discovered in 1930, a period of economic depression and rising fascism. These reflect both the depths and concentrated power with which this planet is associated.
