With a new diet plan trending seemingly every other week, it can be hard to identify not only the strategies that work, but the strategies that will work for you. The best way to begin your path to weight loss and to a healthier lifestyle is to contemplate your personality. That’s where your zodiac sign comes in. It can help you figure out what will get you up and moving and help you stay motivated. We got astrologer and life coach Linda Furiate, who has written for Astrology Hub, The Baltimore Sun and more, to offer insights to help guide you toward a healthier way of living.
Aries (March 21–April 19)

The hardest part about weight loss for an Aries is that they love to start projects, but have a hard time following through. Competition is a way to motivate Aries when they would otherwise begin to slack off. “They are motivated to try new things and to be the first to use something,” Furiate says. “They love getting the latest product on the market to help in their workout or nutritional routine. Their kitchens are filled with blenders, food processors, or other gadgets. Unfortunately, they use these things once or twice and then get bored or lazy. The best thing for Aries is to find a friend or partner they want to aid in their weight loss and workout routine.” These are the secrets of women who work out every day.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)

Furiate says, “If they feel good around what they are wearing and find value in spending the money for exclusive membership, this may motivate them to get up and go to the gym.” So a gym with extra amenities, like a pool, a sauna, or access to masseurs would be perfect for a Taurus. They would benefit from a spa experience. Check out these 12 must-have products for your very own home spa day.
