When you finally decide to start eating healthy to have a chiseled body, it’s just hard to know where to start. There are tons of articles and magazines telling you this and that, and you just don’t know what to do. What really is the truth?
Well, for a disclaimer, we’ll tell you the general rule: it’s all about moderation.
Not having enough is bad, but so as having more than what’s enough. So the best thing is to consume it in moderation.
Let’s start with this article where fitness enthusiast Karan Nijhawan compiled the four biggest nutrition mistakes that can wreck your physique, on Huffington Post:
4 Big Nutrition Mistakes You Make
We all make mistakes — let’s just get that out there. With so much information on the Internet it can be easy to get lost, especially when you hear conflicting messages. Let me share with you four big nutrition mistakes that I made when I first started out so that you don’t follow in my footsteps. Read more…
See, carbs are important! They provide your body with the energy it needs to perform your day-to-day tasks. Also, supplements are okay, unless you’re relying on them alone. It’s still better to get what your body needs from natural foods.
Moreover, here are the day-to-day diet traps you’re probably falling for, and what to do about them, as listed by registered dietitian Matthew G. Kadey on Men’s Fitness:
9 DIET TRAPS YOU MUST AVOID
Just like training, healthy eating is much more than just knowing the basics. Sure, you probably realize by now that downing a plate of deep-fried onion rings isn’t exactly conducive to maintaining a rock-solid midsection. But what about all those lesser-known acts of food sabotage that could be creeping into your everyday eating habits? Some, like eating too fast, could seem rather benign at first, but in fact can be a big reason your physique is more doughy than chiseled. Read on for nine surprising—yet all-too-common—diet traps.

And lastly, Cooking Light shares more specific mistakes to avoid:
The Most Common Nutrition Mistakes
Best-selling author Michael Pollan became famous telling us that to eat healthy is to eat simply—just like our grandmothers did. Problem is, Grandma didn’t live in the Information Age, the age of the 25,000-product supermarket, Dietary Guidelines, and all those superfood health claims. It should be simple. But it really isn’t—not with this much daily nutrition noise to contend with. Read more…
Now that you’ve learned these nutrition mistakes that can wreck your physique, it’s up to you whether or not you’re going to stop doing or at least try avoiding them.
And remember, it’s more than the looks. You have to consume the right foods in order to boost your immune system, and keep your body away from diseases. It makes perfect sense, because what will you do with a perfect, hourglass body, if you’re suffering from diseases, allergies, disorders whatsoever?
Again, make your diet a lifestyle, not just a phase in your life!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, you might be able to hang up your hostess apron for a little while (unless, of course, your home is the December holiday headquarters as well). That also means you can return the fine china to its home in storage. But this year, instead of using that same old cardboard box and a few pieces of newspaper, it’s time to really protect your plates and make sure they are safely stored until they next grace the table. Here are seven tips to keep in mind.
