Carbs and lipids are both broken down by the body to produce energy, but whereas carbs can come in large polymer chains lipids can't. Glucose is strictly a carb And DNA is made from a phosphate group a sugar group (that's your carb right there) and a nitrogenous base, so there's no lipid in there anywhere Also carbs are broken down more easily than lipids, even though when lipids are broken down they give out almost double the energy given off by a carb.That's why we tend to store the lipids more and use the carbs instead, and hence the reason why we get fat
