Hey Adam, can I ask are there any other root vegetables that you would consider ok to eat raw in moderate quantities?
I have seen an amazing transformation of a girl who ate lots of carrots, so they are probably not too bad. If you currently love them, why not. Be open to change. :)
I have no source, but I've heard eating those sort of quantities can turn your skin orange (i'm not kidding!)
That's a lot of carrots. The beta carotene is pigment that gives you the orange colour. Orange poop as well!
Here is a link to beta carotene;
I wouldn't worry too much eating that much at once unless they provide the bulk of your calories.
I like carrots too but I find that they can loose their fresh sweet taste within a week or so, even when kept in the fridge. I particularly like grated carrots usually with apple (also zucchini) which adds sweetness.
I personally don't think I could chew through 2 kg of carrots. To me, taking all the time to chew through 7 or 800 calories worth of carrots isn't worth it. I know my jaw could not handle it. I would say that carrots have fewer starches than other root vegetables, and they are more easily eaten raw. I guess the big question is how do you feel after you eat that much? Do you have any digestive issues?
a meal of sweet darling carrots is bliss for me.
Easier to get the sugar cals if you juice em. I prefer to drink 2kg than eat it.
Do whatever you enjoy the most and lets you bomb in the sugar so you can charge life hard.
Try grating them and adding grated apple. equal quantities - delicious!!!
