A good general rule of thumb is to stay away from carbohydrates in general unless they are 100% whole grain. Carbohydrates that are stripped of their husk are really only just sugar, and eating it alone can be harmful to the body.

Eating simple carbohydrates are bad because of the effect that it has on our blood sugar levels. Simple carbs are easily digestible and absorbed to where the body can almost use them immediately, spiking the available sugar in our blood.
In response to this our body releases insulin which removes the additional sugar from the blood, taking the energy and storing it as fat.
Eating simple carbohydrates is just asking for diabetes and comes along with the awesome benefit of becoming fat as well. Stay away from bagels, white bread, crackers, and other simple carbohydrates.
