Read below to see which might work best for your sun sign.

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    Details fascinate the Virgo, so calorie counting and portion control work wonders. Because no sign of the zodiac likes the minute details of a system like a Virgo, you get better results with a specific, workable weight loss system or a formal program. When your partner also wants to diet with you, the support inspires you to delve into weight loss as a team project.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    When the scales tilt toward heavy, they can also be tilted back to a happy medium. And yet the optimum weight might never be exactly reached. Libra is the sign that yo-yo diets more than anyone else. It's all about getting into that one pair of jeans once or twice before the cookie binge begins. A glance of disapproval from your partner (two months and ten pounds later will send the yo-yo back down back down.

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Overuse of caffeine and tobacco is a common tactic for this dark and adventurous child of the zodiac. If you find you're fasting before a weekend of clubbing, at least try to take care of yourself during the week.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    Sagittarians diet by having fun. You can go out dancing and have a blast and not realize that you just performed an aerobic marathon. You are most successful at losing weight by pursuing a good time. Playing bartender at a party with friends and being the designated driver afterward keeps the pounds off, and while mixing drinks, go ahead and set up a hiking date with the cute guy you met.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    Developing a system and working toward a set goal with a deadline and final date seems oppressive to some, but to the Capricorn, severe limitations are actually a way to focus clearly on the goal at hand. If you want to run a marathon, look great at a class reunion or aim to be the one they talk about at a friend's wedding six months from now, you will lose the weight you want.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    Group activities are your forte. Aquarius is blessed with a love of crowds and people, so a class or other system that involves reporting to other people about how you are fighting the battle of the bulge will reinforce your character strengths and get you down to the size you want to be.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    When dieting, the Fish likes to get away from it all. A cleanse or weight loss retreat is the perfect place for you to reach your goal. Pacing yourself, establishing rituals and setting routines are what works best. Get away and get started.
