Myth: Carbs make you fat - limit them to lose weight.

There are two main types of carbs: complex carbs and simple carbs:

"Foods that are high in complex carbs - like fruits, veggies, and whole grains - provide a healthy supply of fiber, minerals, and vitamins.

But simple carbs from cake, candy, cookies, and sugar-sweetened desserts and drinks (including alcohol) have many calories and few nutrients." (Reference)
