Well, I admit I haven't spent much time studying carrots.  But I'm
confused---how can something that's 88% water have that kind of effect?  I
know it has a similar energy content to grain when totally dehydrated, but
on an as fed basis, it seems you'd have to pound it down with a drill press
to get much response.

Tom, do you have a good source for glycemic index numbers?  Been looking for
one and can't seem to find it.
