Default How bad are simple carbs?

So I'm deployed to Afghanistan (luckily I provide tactical COMMS so I do have some internet) and have to eat MREs (High Calorie, highly processed food) 3 times a day. This is good because I always eat an exact portion and always know the exact nutritional facts, but most, if not almost all of my carbohydrates come in the form of sugars. It's almost impossible for me to get many complex carbs, let alone the fibrous carbs my "diet" used to consist of.
My macros and caloric intake are in check and I know thats what is most important, but I want to know if getting a majority of my carbohydrates in the form of simple sugars is going to have a large detrimental effect on my results.

Thanks in advance. =]]
