it can help..but then again..
by caloric law if you were to have a BMR of 2000 cals per day, and let's say you eat 1500 that day, and eat solid carbs for dinner, you wouldnt gain weight.
i wouldnt think its only helpful if you're bulking. other than that its just a "modern fitness" bluff

An apple at night doesn't make you fat. Eating too much does.

The only thing that makes carbs "bad" when dieting is that they can make you hungry (more so then fats or proteins). Hence if your diet is higher in carbs you might fall off the band wagon and start eating more.

Perhaps, but the salient point here that you seem to have glazed over is WHY they make us hungry.

If you can handle a lot of carbs when dieting, then do it. If not then replace those cals with grams of protein. No need to overcomplicate things.
