Unlimited: Carrots are a good source of vitamin a but if you eat too many you may turn your skin temporarily and harmlessly yellow. This is called "carotenemia" again harmless but esthetically unappealing.

Carrots: Eating too many carrots can give your skin an orange tinge resembling jaundice, the difference being is the whites if your eyes dont turn yellow. The condition is known as carotenimia and is benign. I would limit my intake to 4-5 carrots a day.
