Astrological diet: Libra
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Continuing the theme of astrological dietology, I propose to consider all the zodiac signs separately.
Libra is always trying to taste all that is offered, and as a result eats more than was going to. The recommended foundation of proper nutrition for this zodiac sign is simple food, with low content of salt, rich in vitamins A and E (for immune system and strengthening of blood vessels).
It will be useful to add to your daily ration such vegetables as carrots, beets, radishes, asparagus, zucchini and pumpkin. Among a variety of vegetables you are advised to choose peaches, grapes, pears and apples. To improve the blood you need copper. Foods containing essential element include cucumbers, sea shellfish, radish, lettuce, beets, black currant, strawberry, cranberry, quinoa.
Nature has not bestowed you good health, so you need to carefully monitor your diet. You definitely need to abandon the use of a variety of pickles (cucumbers, salted and smoked fish). Such products as sausage products, margarine, vinegar and milk won’t be useful for you. Also, you should exclude from the ration excessive consumption of sweets and alcohol.
If you were born under the sign of Libra, and want to lose weight, you should avoid low-carbohydrate diets. You are advised to use separate nutrition, vegetarianism, diets based on cereals. I want to offer you a diet that will help you gradually to lose weight without feeling hungry. It is designed for no more than 1500 calories a day.
