    Bagels, white rice and any other starchy carbs are complex carbs.

    The term 'complex carbs' is a misnomer and outdated.

    Even when using those terms simply to classify them according to their chemical structure?

    I personally don't see the relevance, since no one ever talks about, or cares about the chemical structure. People interpret the terms as a measure of 'carb quality'. Complex = good. Simple = bad, except for when correctly timed. Except for the fact that many 'complex carbs' behave like simple carbs, and vice versa.

    And even then it's moot. Even using GI as a measure of carb quality is shortsighted since adding other foods reduces it.

    Why is fruit juice no good? Not that I drink the stuff. I'm just curious to know why.

    Because if I drink juice by itself, it goes straight to my head. Headache and tummyache, boo. So fruit juice no good.
