Aries: March 21–April 19

Aries are independent and may have trouble sticking to the strict rules that come with many diet plans. Try taking a loose-structure approach to your healthy eating habits by writing down a list of your favorite fruits and veggies. Give yourself permission to eat as much of these as you’d like and go light on the richer stuff. (We love this zucchini-loaded salad!) It’s likely that you won’t overeat these healthier foods.

Taurus: April 20–May 20

If you’re a Taurus, chances are you’d rather spend your time enjoying an indulgent meal than hitting the gym. Appeal to your love for rich foods by savoring healthy fats like avocado, cheese, whole eggs (yes, you should eat the yolk!) and treats like dark chocolate. Everything in moderation, as the saying goes.

Gemini is the twin sign and loves to switch things up. You’re always on the move, so smaller meals throughout the day can help keep you energized. Try making some fabulous freezer meals ahead of time, since you’ll probably forget to slow down to eat.
