Why do carrots give me a stomach ache?

Every time I eat raw carrots, I get a bad stomach ache. Is there a reason for this?

Some people find raw veg hard to digest which in turn would cause pain in your stomach.
I have the same problem.
Either have them cooked or try juicing them and see if the same occurs.
Good Luck, Solofelix.

Thank you. Sorry it took me so long to read this thread again and respond. I am just wondering, would cooking them cause them to lose their nutritional value?

Yes they would lose some of their nutritional value.
Why not steam cook them.
Vegetables in general are far better cooked this way.

Re: Why do carrots give me a stomach ache?

For most veggies, a gentle steaming doesn't remove much of the nutrition. Some, like kale, actually become more nutritious when cooked.
