    Carbohydrates have long been maligned by our health- and weight-obsessed public. In fact, some popular diets virtually exclude them. While the carbohydrates in refined grains undoubtedly contribute to the obesity epidemic, Dr. Weil explains that carbs in whole, unprocessed form can be part of a healthy diet.
