Re: Carrot calorie question
Well, someone beat me to the suggestion of getting your kitchen scales and putting carrots in until it reaches 3oz!
But more to the point - what I wanted to say was be careful about how many carrots you eat. You can actually overdose on carotene and can even turn orange! Other potential side effects of overdosing on beta carotene are:
dry, cracked skin
irregular menstrual periods
(info from [DELETED]) - apologies. I didn't realise it was a commercial website, I skipped straight to the carotene page and thought it was an info-only website and thought I should credit it for the information.
Just be careful!
