What's the deal with carrots?

I'm hearing there's some sort of negative effect with carrots and they should be avoided. I can't remember what was said but is there any truth to it. It had something to do with carb. Is it acceptable in Paleo world.

While we're on the subject, I heard something bad about water. Is it true?

People drown every year in it, I would avoid it at all cost. Far fewer people drown in bourbon thus it is safer.

Back in university, I used to drown in bourbon quite regularly. I'm sure I wasn't the only one.

Re: What's the deal with carrots?

If you were following a Keto diet and were trying to keep your carb count to 50g and under then yes, avoid carrots as they are higher in carbs.

I did that a couple of weekends ago. It took me two days to swim out.

Carrots are fine. Just don't eat fruit. That stuff will kill you.
