Sun Sign Survey: Your Junk Food Fix

Filed in Uncategorized

Heather Graham with junk food drink and crimped hairYes, I know. You’re all gourmets or you grow your own herb gardens, are Vegans, Francofiles, whatever.

But still junk food exists and there are times – for whatever reason – when we consume the crap. That’s even though we know it’s empty calories, hideous transfats that cannabilise the good oils in our brain, scary numbers…the lot.

But is there a Sun Sign correlation? Sagittarians like to think they can eat nigh anything and still look/feel fantastic.

Libra, Pisces and Aquarius can all go straight from the Neanderthin diet to a chip buttie…Usually because the core regime was so insane that Yin-Yangs straight into nutrition hell, just to balance things up.

Virgo is, i think, quite often actually immune to junk food. The very thought of potential conditions in a factory beyond their control or some disgusting gelatinous muck used to make their jelly snakes brings them out in hives. So they stick to chocolate, which they say is gourmet and antioxidant rich.

Taurus & Kataka would rather have an actual, constructed meal than anything out of a packet. It’s not sensual enough for them. Let’s just say that, in general, Air and Fire signs are more prone to junk food fixes. Thoughts?

And I am talking purely naff food here. The sort of shite that should probably not even be classified AS food.Β  If you do have a junk “food” fix, is it a secret vice? Or have you turned it into a charming quirk of your personality?

I’m a Virgo and I do not like junk food. Too greasy for me. My best friends (Capricorn, Aries) think I’m weird because I can’t even walk into Pizza Hut without shuddering. I do like chocolate, even though I feel guilty after eating too much. My snacks of choice tend to be raw carrots and melon slices. Or scones. I am partial to scones.

Gahh should have known the Sag sun was doing me in. I usually am pretty good but the late nights can and have gotten me. I care enough about my health so that I don’t gorge often, but I have a total weakness for fried/spicy/salty foods. I love salt/vinegar chips and fries with tabasco sauce like no otherrrrr. I can also devour the entire bar of cadbury’s fruit and nut chocolate without thinking. I am fortunately addicted to a few healthier snacks like multigrain chips and freeze-dried strawberries… and Leo rising & libra moon might keep me in check SLIGHTLY… Read more »

Hmmmm chip buttie…but then again I never did meet a carb I didn’t like. Plain Kettle chips, or at a pinch, salt and vinegar. None of those nasty flavours – the very thought of sour cream and chives all over a lovely chip makes me feel ill.

Chocolate, cupcakes, cookies, mochas with cream, vodka: big time.
But I like healthy food too, esp. sunflower seeds, good bread, any fruit, houmous… aw man food! have lately become addicted to avocadoes – high in fat & creamy satisfaction, low in guilt πŸ™‚

I remember the Virgo personal trainer I had last year, whom I variously referred to as “Madam Lash” and “The Torturer” depending on how shitty I was with her after a work out. She spoke these bizarre words: “food is for fuel – not fun”. I never understood the concept then and quite frankly I’d rather drop dead than live by that sort of regime now. It was ok for about three weeks and then I was ravenously stuffing my face with her vegetable diet and NEVER SATISFIED. I was ready to kill people, her and perhaps myself. So I’ve… Read more »

Yep, this Gem loves her junk food! But Virgo influences don’t let me eat it too often.
I either go for crunchy/salty – chips, pretzels, cheetos, or sweet! Chocolate, cupcakes, pastries….oh god, those are my downfall.

White wine, vodka, margaritas. Too much yummy food that’s bad for you!

I couldn’t live without any kind of candy, dessert and black coffee.
Also, I love chocolate. Someone even gave me some stationery that say “Save the world, it’s the only planet with cocolate!” . Yeah. Brownies are my perdition.
Despite all this, I don’t like frappuccinos and that kind of drinks.
And i like coca cola. regular. πŸ˜€

I am a health freak but when I want to be naughty I lurve barbecue chips or plain chips ( they are less poisonous!).

If I really want to be totally wicked I buy Nasty Wings from KFC – yes that’s my name for them. Then feel totally ill at that fatty after taste, but whilst gobbling it up I enjoy every morsel! : >

i inhale chocolate – a family sized block can disappear in 5 minutes or less depending on the time of the month.

last night there was no chocolate in the house so i made a self saucing butterscotch pudding. it hit that sweet spot i needed to fill.

so sweets are my junk food, never really been into savoury…

all that being said, i am a vego and try to eat organic, no GM foods and am in the process of growing my own veges and fruit.

What can I say? I bought a pack of mini-Cadbury Flake yesterday, just so I can have a bite when I fancy one. Otherwise it’s Maltesers. I just LOVE Maltesers. And I kill for a chip butty. Other than that, and they are very rare on the agenda, I don’t eat much crap food as you feel it afterwards. But sometimes the naff feeling is just worth it, lol.

Pisces in CQ

hmmm. I eat just about anything savoury, with a preference for crunchy. Fave junk ‘foods’ would have to be beer, wine, bourbon or scotch and not necessarily in that order, with popcorn made on the stove and lashings of butter (organic) and salt or an enormous pile of papadums. Anything at all made with roasted capsicums – tapenade, dips, part of a snacky platter…. Try roast capsicum and caperberries mixed with phillidelphia cheese on pepper rice wafers! Heaven! Or even roast capsicum with hummus. MMMmm. I’m hungry now!

Good hot chips or wedges with aoili; Dr Oetker Spinach Pizza (frozen in supermarket, can devour an entire pizza if i let myself). Someone above mentioned Triple Treat iceblocks – I loved them as a kid and does anyone remember the Jellytip? Yumm. Not so much of a sweet tooth now but do always have dark chocolate in the house. My real evil addiction is diet coke – one can per day. I know I know, have read all the stuff but it tastes good but only through a straw. Leo sun, Moon and lots of Kataka, Fish rising

So are you all saying that Cheetos and gin & tonics are not a food group? Damn! (Pisces with Libra Asc.)

I like to think of G&Ts being a ‘super-food’ (ie; medicinal) group: medicinal juniper (!) juice, the tangy quinine of the tonic (has anti-inflammatory, anti-malarial properties among other things) AND a dash of Vit C (lemon) to ward off scurvy!

Go through phases, but current favourite is double brie drizzled with sweet chilli sauce and eaten with plain crackers. Mmm.
But also good dark chocolate – try to avoid, coz if I eat even just one piece I’m craving more for the next week.
And ice cream – Peters no added sugar served with frozen blueberries, so I can pretend it’s good for me.
Used to be a chocolate thick shake addict, but thankfully recovered. No good for the tum, in oh so many ways.

Capricorn. I have been fighting my raging Coca-Cola addiction for the entire year so far!

Weird thing is… I went to my heavy-duty meditation group & most of us are a) Capricorns, b) health & eco-conscious & c) swilling Coke. So I’m not alone, at least!

Cancer sun, ditto rising… hate hate hate the very IDEA of junk food, and love food generally – but always weak for biscuits or anything remotely related to potatoes (crisps, chips, potato cakes…).

Personally though, the blackest of black chocolate (80% cocoa or over for pref) is worth all the junk food on the planet, ten times over!

Cadbury Flakes Snickers Bars (at least two in one sitting) Hate hate hate hot chips, maccas, kfc etc etc. That is junk pretending to be food. The above is just junk.

I recall Mystic once saying, of Capricorns, something like ‘eats whatever is required to provide basic essential nutrition, moves on…’ which I feel belongs in our bible. Although I am getting better at food appreciation, and cook super delish rustic, flavourful, comfort creations. Junk food for me is FAST FOOD. Just that. Fast. Give me whatever carbo rich inexpensive thing you’ve got to deal with this annoying hunger distraction so I can continue on with my business thanks. It’s not indulgence, it’s utilitarian.

whee

Yep. Eat to live, not for enjoyment. I am a fast food junkie simply because its convenient and I tend to not get many overwhelming food cravings. I went through a protein shake phase. I also went through a phase where I would eat only mcdonalds breakfast sandwiches every day for several months. If its fast and filling, its fine. I too am trying to appreciate food and think of it more as an indulgence rather than fuel. I rarely ever simply “snack” but I am starting to see the appeal of it. I also have a huge weakness for… Read more »

–Things with potatoes in it. Crisps, mashed taters, fried taters, and the like. I like to blame my part Irish side…hahaha. Lately I’ve found baked with a bit of olive oil suits me better than deep fried. Still carb-y but not as nasty of oils. Seasonings? malt vinegar or maybe ketchup or rosemary and sea salt…idk. —Air popped popcorn with real butter and salt. –A perfect bowl of white rice with shiso seasoning and little shreds of nori with salmon flake things. I almost never tire of rice. Risotto if i am feeling wacky. –I used to think I liked… Read more »

So eating a lot of choco is magnesium deficiency.
That makes so much sense as i was eating half
block of Cadbury’s Creme Brulee desert block a day.
Have been taking bio-magnesium for 6 weeks & choc
desire gone (also can’t get it anymore, no stock anywhere).
Can’t or won’t eat most junk food as it tastes like cotton wool.

Yup! I used to be one of those people who would only eat the darkest of the dark chocos! 70% or higher! I started treating myself with the Magnesium because i got wild mood swings. I occasionally treat myself to some raw choccies or even (GASP!) carob but I’m just not into it anymore. πŸ™ It feels weird because a lot of my friends are still into that dark chocolate thing and I feel left out now. But the other part of me feels like i should celebrate freedom from it. How do you feel about your liberation from chocolate?… Read more »

this is all very disappointing. PEOPLE. JUNK food is sour patch kids, french fries (with mayo and pepper), cinnamon bears, baby ruths, and m&m’s.

Full on Virgo: dark chocolate, good quality thanks, at least 70% cocoa content. Extra nice is with orange bits and pieces. Proper vanilla ice cream (home made is the best) second choice. Overall quality and condensed flavour over quantity is the approach which is somewhat contradictory to the whole idea of junk food!
On field trips in the VERY remote parts of Aus, timtams might be the next best thing (dark chocolate, carefully preserved on ice on the grueling trip)

Stellium Virgo in the 8th house. Would rather starve than eat junk food.
Can’t resist potato chips though and fig and chocolate tart – was addicted to those for a while and everybody knew about it too. Don’t see the point of keeping anything i eat a secret. I actually try and keep my healthy eating habits to myself, lest someone think i’m obsessive or neurotic. Which isn’t too far from the truth. πŸ˜†

Cancer/Taurus and Taurus rising: I am a little scavenger. I get my fix by going around my kitchen taking a pinch of raisins here, a spoonfull of Nutella there…..my favorites are Nutella, sorbet, and chips and salsa (not together- just a pinch of each in any order) I don’t buy junk food but if i DID: cheesy poofs (cheetos) and kit kat bars.

Pisces Sun, Libra Rising. Kinda in awe at the level of healthy eating going on!

I gravitate toward anything salty/savoury … the best? Crinkle cut Salt & Vinegar. I can INHALE them. And, like many fish folk, am pretty secretive about it, which totally freaks my Libran side right out.

Leo, Virgo Rising. I LOVE junk food, sadly yes, and I am addicted to chocolate (must have a piece everyday) but I cannot eat anything that has a phallic appearance re: bananas for example.

I mostly love salty fries, fried chicken, anything crispy with a crunch to it, especially with the sound of that “crunch”.

I have a thing for foreign snacks or things that are hard to come by where I live.

Japanese sweets, like those little koala cookies with the chocolate inside, or Pocky. One time they sold Tim Tams here and my sister and I pigged out on… Read more »
