Are all Carbs bad?

Question: Are all Carbs bad?
Answer: Recently there have been many fad diets that advocate leaving out carbohydrates all together and in fact people have had great short term results. Of course if you cut out sugar, breads, pastries, white rice and white bread you are going to feel better! Your body will be so relieved.
For good health in the long term whole grains (complex carbs) are great because they are balanced, full of nutrients and therefore a great foundation for a plant-based diet.
Simple carbohydrates (white rice, white bread, white pasta and refined sugar) on the other hand are 'empty foods' containing little nutrition which tend to put on unwanted weight, clog up your system and wreak havoc on your overall health.
