So, I tried the raw carrot today. It tasted like watered down shit, perhaps because of my grating methodology.
I added coconut oil and honey, which might have made it taste worse.
I noticed that I felt worse rather than better after eating the carrot, and also noticed that I had the urge to cover it in a substantial amount of salt the whole time I was eating it.
I'm sure there are some health merits to the daily raw carrot, but probably only for people whose metabolic rate is already stable at a high level. For people whose metabolic rate is questionable, the potassium in the carrots most likely does more harm than good. Foods high in sodium would probably be a preferable alternative.
