Why do we need to cut carbs when cutting?

Or why is carb and fat a bad macro? in the end, doesn't it just add up to calories,meaning you can eat anything but just watch out for calories? Whats specific about them that we want to avoid? Sorry for being dumb, i've never really understood/researched this. I've tried but didn't get it.
