Thank you for your comments. If you consider that our ancestors and rural communities to this day, ate/eat very little "food from animals", but ingested/ingest approx. 75% of their energy in the form of unprocessed, high-fibre carbohydrates and obesity and diseases of lifestyle were not a problem then you may understand why it is a good idea to eat high-fibre, low-fat carbs and small quantities of meat, etc. If you cut down on fat which includes all fatty food from animals and all cakes, pies, chocolate, then you will also automatically cut out all carbs with a high fat and sugar content. Carbs are not the enemy, but fat and kJ are!
