BS. Carbs are not the enemy. I'm amazed at how many people on the site have fallen for the Paleo anti-carb nonsense. For starters, "carbs" is a vague term...carbs can mean cookies, candy and junk food, or it can mean heathy vegetables and fruits. So right off the bat, it's deceptive to say that carbs are bad.
Zippy was right when he said that being fat stems from a wrong lifestyle, which starts with a wrong mindset. Eating the standard American diet (which is horrible) not exercising, and not really caring about your health is what causes people to be fat. That's why there are so many fat people in America. Too much fast food, too much meat, dairy, processed food and junk food.
Don't worry about carbs, worry about the type of food that you're eating.
Just to add...my diet has always included a lot of carbs (even before I went plant-based), and I've always been thin or at the right weight for my height. In the past, it was probably because I had a high metabolism. But now it's because I eat healthy, even though I eat a high carb diet. :)
