Ok I love to eat carrots. I know that they are a low calorie carb, but what type of carb are they. Are they starchy like a potato? Thanks!

Well carrots get approximately half of their carbs from sugar (sucrose primarily), then fiber makes up most of the remaining carbs for.

For instance:

100g raw carrots
Total Carbs- ~9.5g
sugars- ~4.5g
fiber- ~3g
starch-~1.4
