Your Zodiac sign's eating habits
March 21 - April 19
Your fiery nature doesn’t let you give too much time to eating, thus making fast and spicy foods your undisputable faves. You love cooking experiments, especially connected to herbs and spices, and have a huge appetite. However, your habit of eating too fast may result in health problems. Learn to eat slowly to avoid stuffing yourself with food and try to adapt your eating plan to your intense lifestyle – increase the number of calories you consume every day. You should also avoid hot drinks, otherwise, you’ll always end up having one too many.
April 20 - May 20
You are a gourmand or, simply put, a foodie. You love eating and know how to make it enjoyable. You are never thrifty when it comes to buying food. The good thing is that for you quality outweighs quantity, no matter how big you want your plate to be. Sticking to a diet is impossible for Taurus; cooking, on the contrary, is a pleasure rather than a necessity. You are a walking cookbook, ready to share with anyone who is eager to discuss the delicious. You can’t stand being interrupted in the middle of a meal – it is your meditation ritual. Your biggest food-related problem is indulging in sweets; try to limit the amount of confectionery you consume by replacing them with nonetheless satisfying fresh fruit.
May 21 - June 20
You can give a sigh of relief: no matter how much you eat, it will never tell on your weight. You hate eating alone, as you view your meals as an opportunity to engage in a stimulating conversation rather than to enjoy the taste or to satisfy the hunger. Eating being one of your least favorite activities, it comes as a surprise that cooking isn’t. In fact, you enjoy every minute of it – it’s your chance to set your creativity (not the skillet!) ablaze and to carry out relatively safe experiments. Moreover, the results of your cooking experiments are usually enjoyed even by picky eaters. But you’d better not be picky yourself: avoid alcohol and unhealthy food; add variety to your diet to ward off digestion-related diseases.
June 21 - July 22
Your cooking skills are exceptional; you enjoy cooking for your family, especially if there is a chance to use your grandmother’s handwritten cookbook. You are not thrifty when it comes to buying food because you only want to get the best ingredients. Your special dishes are irresistibly mouthwatering and delicious, and you are fun to share a meal with thanks to all of the amazing food facts and stories that you know. However, when it comes to sharing your food, you are the worst – your appetite is enormous and you want all of your food for yourself. Another bad habit of yours is the breakneck speed of eating. You’d better learn to control your appetite, as you may tend to stuff yourself silly, especially if the situation is stressful.
July 23 - August 22
You are a fan of gourmet dishes cooked with the use of luxury ingredients. This is why you just love eating out at expensive restaurants – your royal nature needs an appropriate place and atmosphere to fully enjoy the meal. Disciplined nutrition and good eating habits come easy to you, but you may sometimes eat too fast. You love to share meals with a company, especially if it consists of people who mean much to you. Cooking itself is not your favorite pastime, but you are ready to do it to make your significant ones happy, and when you do, the outcome is sure to be more than satisfying. You’d better decrease the amount of meat in your diet and replace it with vegetables and fruit, as Leos are prone to heart diseases, which makes the choice of foods you consume one of your top priorities.
August 23 - September 22
You find no problem in dieting – there is nothing tasty enough to throw you off the planned course. Unfortunately, this ability of self-control comes in handy too often: your sensitive stomach and slow metabolism lay you under an obligation of sticking to easily-digested foods. You are a kitchen wizard; your versions of tried-and-true recipes are just magical. Your thriftiness does not apply to food: nothing is too expensive for you if it tastes nice. You are not in the habit of throwing away leftovers; instead, you always succeed in cooking something from scratch.
September 23 - October 23
You are an epitome of a foodie. When there are a variety of dishes on the table, especially if their appearance appeals to your aesthetic nature, you make a point of trying each and every one of them. Simple foods like an omelet or a pizza will not impress your educated palate. You love good wine, red in particular. When it comes to cooking, you view it as a chance to show off your designer skills and decorate the meal in the most attractive way possible. Chocolate being your favorite treat, you’d rather deny yourself the pleasure of eating the main course than give up dessert. However, you should learn to control your craving for everything sweet if you want to make your body slim.
October 24 - November 22
Hunger is your constant companion that sends you on a nighttime refrigerator pilgrimage a bit too often. When there is nothing to munch on or to spice up your meal with, you get furious. Your favorite foods are rich in calories; being an excellent cook, you can never hide your disappointment with unskillfully seasoned food. You manage to keep your body slim through exceptional measures: as soon as you feel you have gone too far, you impose a strict dieting regime. The only piece of advice for you is to avoid drinking alcohol and try to replace it with water or infused herbal drinks and teas.
November 23 - December 21
If something tastes exotic, it’s bound to be your fave. Your curiosity makes trying non-standard foods almost a compulsion. You love experimenting, and food is no exception; your taste swings from one extreme to the other. Your eating habits come and go: you can be a glutton one week and starve yourself the next. You sometimes find it difficult to stop eating or drinking, this is why you are prone to digestion-related diseases. Learn to quit while one is ahead.
December 22 - January 19
You love to work hard and enjoy treating yourself to a hearty meal afterwards. Eating itself must be a ritual - high-quality foods, a relaxed atmosphere, and a pleasant company are the essential ingredients of a good dinner for Capricorn. Your favorite dishes are homemade, but you don’t understand a thing about spices, that’s why one of the factors that may influence the choice of your lifetime companion is his/her cooking talents. But you’d better learn to calculate the right amount of salt on your own, as you often season your meals with too much salt, and it is really bad for your health.
January 20 - February 19
You eagerly share your food with anyone who is willing to take a bite, but probably because you are not a hearty eater yourself – your favorite foods are low on calories. You are also very likely to be (or become) a vegetarian, not only because of your humanitarian nature but also due to your love of vegetables and fruit. You like tasting unknown and strange foods; when cooking, you inevitably adapt recipes to your own taste and vision. A piece of friendly advice: try to take a grip on your nighttime hunger and wait till morning to have a good, hearty, and healthy breakfast. You’d better avoid drinking as much coffee as you do now as well.
February 20 - March 20
You hate cooking and eating experiments; the best foods for you are those cooked according to traditional recipes. You enjoy attractive dishes more than tasty ones and think that the most important attribute of a good dinner is great company. For you, eating is a matter of necessity, not a pleasure or an amusement. Be careful with alcohol, as it inevitably takes its toll on your health, and you are often likely to drink one too many.
