  1. What a coincidence! I started eating carrot over a week ago. I started eating it because I'm trying to lose weight and be more healthy. Carrots don't have a lot of calories and they are filling. So I eat them as a snack. Based on your research, is there a recommended amount of carrot we should consume a day? Also, where did you find the resource that it decreases the chance of a stroke by as much as 70%? I thought that was pretty impressive and if it is that good then maybe the American Heart Association should seriously look into this.
