I would like to see a study about the types of carbs. What we have seen in the last century is an increase in production and consumption of processed simple carbs, loaf breads, cereals, instant this or that. At the same time we have seen an increase in obesity.
I am also praying over and about the foods listed in the Bible. Would God tell his creation to eat something that would kill them? A whole nother discussion. Anyway, while there are carbs on the list, NONE, would have been highly processed, but would have been stone ground mostly by hand. This would retain almost all of the fiber and nutrients. But, aside from the few grains listed, Barley, Wheat, Millet, Spelt and a few Legumes, Lentils primarily, and a few of the fruits, the overall food listing is fairly low carb.
We should also remember that until relatively recently, most grain foods were used as minor sides, not as main dishes. Even our pasta favorites were to be side dishes of the meat and veggies. The western diet began using grains as a cheap source of food and thrust them to the forefront. (again, a whole nother discussion)
