    Is eating a lot of carrots daily a bad idea?

    They have quite a few carbs and are quite starchy. Im just wondering if eating them everyday even when i dont do a lot of moving around is good. I usually take in a whole bag of baby carrots sometimes which is 5 servings 30 carbs and 150 cals. Which doesnt seem like a lot but adds up.

    That's not a lot at all. I wouldn't sweat it in the least.

    My pet rabbit eats around 2 carrots daily and weighs about 3 kg, FFS.

    He's very active and has recently turned 8, so the calorific restriction meme can go fuck itself, quite frankly. He's going great guns.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    Shit son. I eat close to a pound of carrots daily usually steam then slathered in heaps of butter cinnamon and pepper. So good with ground beef and mustard. Eat it all like its going out of style.

    I did that when I was in college. Ate a pound of raw carrots daily for a month. I literally did start to turn orange....

    From your post, it looks like you're worried about going low carb. Are they low carb? No. You can choose not to eat them. However, they are primal. If you want them, then eat them. Carrots are vegetables.
