The article notes what I’ve been saying for years – that it’s insane to go on a low-carbohydrate diet. For the millionth time, while simple carbs that are found in foods such as white flower and sugar are not good for you, complex carbs found in fruits, grains and vegetables are essential for good health.

To argue that because some carbs are unhealthy we should avoid all of them makes about as much sense as saying that since some foods are unhealthy to eat, we should starve to death!
