Carbs are not the enemy

19% of Americans erroneously believe that calories from carbs cause more weight gain than calories from fats or sugars.  
The bottom line is a calorie is a calorie whether it comes from carbs, fats, or sugars.  There's no scientific reason to cut out an entire food group.  Instead, get the most mileage from carbs by choosing those high in dietary fiber, like whole wheat pasta and brown rice.
