Can you turn orange from eating too many carrots?
Yep. That beta-carotene can pigment your skin just like it does your carrot cake.
How many carrots would I need to eat?
Partially depends on how bioavailable the carrots are.
As in, are you eating them raw? (more carrots needed)
juiced? (fewer carrots needed).
Also, since beta-carotene, aka vitamin A, is fat-soluble, the less body fat you have the more likely you are to store this orange-molecule in your skin.
Benefits of eating carrots to the point of turning orange?
Sweet tan bro!
Disadvantages of eating carrots to the point of turning orange?
You probably have an eating disorder and should talk to a doctor. Best of luck :(
So I’ve had some people write to me and ask about help with specific subjects. I can’t really offer that, but I have been teaching and tutoring for a while, and can definitely tell you my big teaching/learning/studying secret.
VOCABULARY PRACTICE!! It’s 100% important and necessary to explicitly practice vocabulary for literally every subject, from english to organic chem.
A lot of times people will just learn new vocabulary while they read a chapter, but the problem here is that it’s a lot to digest, you’re not going to really be comfortable using that word after one page, and you risk misunderstanding every other concept you read that mentions that word. When people say they read a page and had no idea what just happened on that page, it’s almost always because there was a vocabulary term they didn’t even know they didn’t understand.
My advice has always been to get the vocabulary words necessary for whatever chapter you’re about to read before you even read the chapter. Make a list, get the definitions, and make them useable (a friend who took the class last year or a teacher can help you put definitions in understandable words if the dictionary definitions are kinda worthless.) Here is a social studies example:
If the textbook introduces filibuster to you as:
“utilizing a technique for obstructing legislation by making long speeches and introducing unnecessary amendments”
You will have a much easier time if you’ve already created a filibuster flashcard that just reads,
“OMG STFU already senator.” Always cultivate pith.
I know this sounds like it will add to your workload, but trust me, you’ll read the chapter much much faster, you’ll be more engaged in what’s being said because you understand it better, and you’re less likely to get frustrated and check tumblr.
Also, let me know if you come up with a particularly choice definition so I can give you the big ups you deserve!
