A diet of nothing but celery may be low calorie but it is still considered a high carb diet since the vast majority of the calories consumed are carbs.

Considered by who? Not by anyone I care to consider following.

First of all, failure to recognize the diff between indigestible carbs vs digestible carbs renders any such definition useless.

Second of all, failure to know the dose rate, that is the grams of digestible carbs, renders such definitions useless.

Would you take a pill based on only the knowledge that 100% of the active ingredient was codeine?
