The Health Fad Each Zodiac Sign Is Obsessed With

the health fad each zodiac sign is obsessed with

I just meal prepped. Why? Because I accidentally bought a bunch of meal prep containers instead of Tupperware. I have to admit, just looking at how neat and well portioned my broccolli and rice was in that meal prep container made me feel like going to the gym for a hardcore workout. Coupled with an energy drink filled with potassium and sodium and I'm good to go, right?

It seems there's always a health trend going on. After all, we are creatures of habit, and we are very fond of being healthy. It's how we get there that shows the difference between us. And astrology influences how we make these choices and why we tend to obsess over health choices. What health fad is each zodiac sign obsessed with? Well, it depends.

Last year I worked out like a fiend. This year, I'm working hard on becoming the blob I used to be before I started working out. I'm not the only person who does this. Between the cost of the gym, the determination to become disciplined, and the desire to look good, I somehow fell back into my old pattern of being lazy, and perhaps a little less than in optimum health.

I've always followed my own rules, in terms of diet and exercise. I've never actually followed a fad diet, nor have I ever put my body through the torture of eating foods I can't stand, trendy foods like kale, cauliflower and açaí berries. And if I hear the word "keto" one more time, I will go out of my mind.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You love your perfect meals and you have to have them on time, at the same time, every day. You are such a creature of comfort and expectation that if you were to have an obsession with health, it would be all about timing.

You must eat several meals a day, and you must cut off at a certain time, or it's just not you. Your health obsession: eating times.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You prefer to eat anything and everything you want, and you shun diets as well as working out; however, you do like to meditate and practice your version of self-care. If there's a health obsession with you, it's about pulling back, going internal and meditating in silence, every day.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Your health obsession is about taking in the required amounts of television watching, first thing in the AM, and all night long, until you fall asleep. You keep the TV on while you sleep as it keeps the boogeyman away, and that not only makes sense to you, it keeps you healthy.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Your health obsession is pure, clean food — and not much of it. You are super health-conscious, and you freely follow the trends for healthy lifestyle. You would eat meat and poultry if it was organic, but you prefer the plant-based lifestyle.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You rarely follow any kind of trend, especially when it comes to your health. You have a hubristic attitude about health; you believe you're always okay. You walk the middle road — not too much of this, not too little of that, but if there's one obsession you have, it's doing it "your way."

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You are obsessed with having a better body, and you come from a lifetime of self-hate and damaging self-judgment. Your obsession is dieting, and you do not do it cautiously. You are impulsive, prone to bulimia, and you work out excessively to the point of extreme behavior.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You are obsessed with not being bored, and you bore so very easily that you tend to work on your body, just because there's nothing else for you to do.

You enjoy working out, but your true obsession is taking selfies and sending them to everyone for their nonstop approval. Your health depends on how many people tell you that you look good.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You are obsessed with discipline and restrictive diets. You like to fast for days, drinking only water. You love watching your body get toned, and if there was an obsession for you, health-wise, it would be all about an austere, minimal diet and work out plan.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You love to run, bike, swim, and you tend to stay away from gyms. Freedom is your thing, and in terms of health, you are obsessed with being outdoors. The fresh air motivates and moves you, and you involve yourself in sports that raise your heart rate. Hey, you're as healthy as a horse!

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The only obsession you have is with the amount you eat. You avoid working out, and you detest having to take the time to invest in your health; you take it for granted, but if you are to do it your way, the way that makes the most sense, you'd make tiny little portions of food and eat them 12 times a day.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You like to eat your foods according to color; this makes sense to you. You feel healthy when you're in control, and what makes you feel in control is to separate your foods into color groups.

Rice, white bread and potatoes here, and tomato, beets and red meat over there. It's your way or the highway, and that is your health obsession.

PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

If there's a new fad diet to follow, you do. You are a total slave to trend. It excites you to know there's yet another chance to do the right thing for your health!

So, keto it is, as it was when it was called Atkins or Paleo or South Beach. If it's new, it's your health fad obsession, Pisces.
