Leo is the royal sign associated with the sun, the planet of leadership, and that means you like the best of everything. But this can make you too self-indulgent, especially when it comes to luxury foods.
You love eating out and throwing dinner parties. You live for the moment and are not too bothered with those extra kilograms creeping on. Fortunately, your Leo pride stops you from piling on the weight because you hate to be out of control. As a fire sign, you have a robust constitution, and filling your day with activities helps burn kilojoules.Foods
You like strong flavours and rich food. Reward yourself when you reach a target with a non-food treat such as perfume or some jewellery.Friendly foods
Salmon, salads, dried fruit, citrus fruits.No-go foods:
Steaks in rich sauce.Diets
Your leadership streak makes it hard for you to accept anyone else's rules – you need to feel that you are in charge. You might be tempted by celebrity diets but it's best to stay away from those unless it is a diet plan based on safe principles and fresh foods.Exercise
Because you're super-active, you need something regular and intense to feel fulfilled. Watch out for burn-out, though, when you suddenly lose all enthusiasm and collapse in a heap. Make use of your competitive nature by having goals and targets.
Zodiac action plan
