NO!: They and sugar are the major cause of obesity. Eating white rice in eastern countries caused beriberi. Good class protein, appropriate fat and complex carbs make up a balanced diet that you get from "god-made" food.

Simple carbs, yes...: But complex carbs are harder for your body to absorb which means that you don't get calories as fast and therefore don't spike your Insulin and then "crash" right after when all the simple carbs get put away. They also tend to come in foods that contain fiber, minerals and vitamins so they are not "empty" calories like simple carbs. Finally, fiber holds water and may make u feel full longer.
