Astro Diet – Virgo

Virgo health and eating habits

Virgos can be hopeless hypochondriacs and overly obsessed with their health, taking potions and powders for everything. Their bathroom medicine cabinets carry countless cures and are usually choc-a-bloc. Overweight appals them more than any other sign in the Zodiac. Virtuous Virgos want their physiques to be perfect, and are careful about what they chomp and chew. Many eschew meat and become vegetarians and whole-food fanatics. Even when eating out, they are fiendishly fussy about their choice of chow, fully au fait with the pros and cons of every edible. They wind up putting on weight when overworking or worried because then they become down and depressed and truly twitch with tension and that’s when they forage in the fridge. Virgos’ idea of heaven is a holiday at a health farm and they need regular respite just to relax and unravel. Virgo is boss of the bowels and all things abdominal, so they are prone to stomach problems like colitis, ulcers and ineffective intestines. These maidens are martyrs to nervous tension which can cause some of them to suffer from asthma. Generally speaking Virgos are very healthy.

Your diet and essential foods

Let’s develop a delectable diet for you, Virgos, one full of salads, fruit and healthy foods. This should be a piece of cake for you. (Forget the cake!).

Daily diet supplement

Your cell salt, Virgo, is Potassium Sulphate which can be found in certain foods. Deficiency can cause spots and acne because the pores become clogged. I recommend that you take Kali-Sulph pills which are the homeopathically prepared biochemically active equivalent and can be bought at all health food shops.

Right, Virgos, here is a list of foods for you to stick up on your wall. I have included lots of fruits and vegetables and as you enjoy them, you should have fun with this diet.

There, that’s not so bad is it? Make up your menus from this melange and have fun with your diet! Don’t forget to drink your water, bottled still or sparkling is the best but if you can’t afford that then use tap water and if you have the time, boil it first. Try not to drink coffee, but if you must, then make it black. Herbal tea is rather nice.
