High-carb diets include foods high in fiber and water content but low in fat, such as grains, fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products.

The right diet for an individual depends on their health needs and goals, physical activity level, and food preferences.

People with diabetes may not benefit from low-carb diets since they may need more carbohydrates to control their blood sugar levels.
