I don't think sugar ages you, or that low GI sugars are harmful -- the dose makes the poison. D-Ribose for instance is a sugar with a negative GI value that reduces inflammation and supports the cardiovascular system.

The problem is when your body isn't able to turn the amount of carbohydrates you're eating into useful energy, the effects of this are devastating and easily visible through excess body fat accumulation, yet, you keep shoveling it down until a disease has developed. To make your body burn through that sugar and stay lean on fruit juices, you can go cardiofreak-mode, but all that cardio produces more oxidative stress and cellular damage.

As long as you feel fine and are at a healthy body composition, I see no reason to fear or restrict carbs past a comfortable low cab 100-150g.
