One of the main reasons for me is that carbs spike your insulin, which unless you've just done a workout, is something you want to try and avoid. Give it a try for a few weeks and see how you feel.
Combine carbs with other food that contains protein, fat and fibre then. Problem solved.
Also you could lose weight and be in great shape living off 3 big macs a day if your calorie count is below maintenance levels.
There's no such thing as good and bad foods. If you're getting nutrients it doesn't matter.
Quantity makes you put on weight not quality, all calories are equal.
