Astrological diet: Taurus
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Continuing the theme of astrological dietology, I propose to consider all the zodiac signs separately.
Proper nutrition is a serious matter for Taurus – you need to be very careful about your health. Most often, your metabolic processes are slowed down, and excessive nutrition very quickly leads to obesity and diseases – various disorders of blood circulation, diseases of the cardiovascular system, varicose veins.
Of course, you’re a foodie and a sweet tooth. However, first of all you will have to eliminate from the diet: sweets, various confectionery articles, cakes, pies and pastries. It is not recommended for you to drink strong tea and coffee. In addition, fatty food, in particular fried meat, is not desirable as well. It is best to replace it with poultry, fish and lean meats.
It will be useful for you to eat more plant foods and dairy products. Include steamed vegetables and vegetable salads into your mandatory diet. Give preference to carrots, beets, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, onions. Also, do not forget about the seafood – it will be very helpful. Marine fish, and especially seaweed, contains a lot of iodine necessary for normal functioning of the thyroid gland.
It is important to eat nuts – a handful every day. When choosing fruit, pay attention to oranges, peaches, apricots, quinces, tangerines.
The best drinks for you: acidic drinks based on cranberries, lemon juice, as well as diuretic herbs such as cowberry leaf, chamomile, parsley.
At mature age, you should remember about the vitamins A and E, and copper compounds, and add to the nutrition products rich in these elements – beef and pork liver, cod, “red” fruits and vegetables, which are rich in carotene. It is advisable to cook using vegetable oil due to vitamin E.
If you want to lose weight, you may try separate nutrition, vegetarianism, a variety of popular low-calorie and low carbohydrate diets.
