Its a myth. Carbs are essential source of energy. Excess of anything is bad for the health

While carbs, fat and protein are each a source of energy, the amount of energy that each one provides varies: • carbohydrate provides: 4kcal per gram • protein provides: 4kcal per gram • fat provides: 9kcal per gram In the absence of carbohydrates your body will convert protein and fat into glucose, so it's not just carbs that can raise your blood sugar and insulin levels.

Refined flour like maida should be avoided becoz it contains more calories instead u csn use rice flour which is gud....... carbohydrates r necessary but in limited quantities if tsken the body even needs them
