I have recently taken a liking to carrots as a snack. I'm only having one or two a day, but any idea on what quantity would need to be consumed to turn orange? In case Marc Weber passes through, my aim is to stop below this value and not to achieve this value

My first thought: "There's only one way to find out. . ."

The sort of quantities you find in 1.5 litres of Sunny Delight

Watch out for the side effects (other than turning orange that is)

You are close to the max if you are eating big carrots: http://www.dietitian.com/vitamina.html

Did you watch the episodes of house or scrubs awhile back? House was Vitamins and Scrubs was a Tomato and carrot diet that made people orange.

I'm not sure if you did it to lose weight, but you certainly lost a little height.
