good foods you can overdose on

Even with healthy food, there can be too much of a good thing.

Watch your intake of these healthy foods to ensure that you’re not getting too much of them, or doing more harm than good!

1. Carrots

The result of overdoing it with carrots isn’t necessarily harmful, but it is kind of embarrassing and a little bizarre.

Beta carotene, the phytochemical that gives carrots their orange color, is fat soluble, which means your body can store it to use later.

The downside? Too much beta carotene and your skin can actually start to turn orange! This is most common in babies and children, but can also happen to adult carrot junkies.

2. Tuna Fish

Large fish like tuna that happily sit at the top of the food chain tend to contain a lot of mercury, due to the accumulated effects of eating fish that eat other fish.

Raw tuna is a particular culprit, but canned tuna and cooked fresh tuna can also contain dangerous levels of mercury. The result can be mercury poisoning in you if you eat more than 6 ounces of tuna per week. People who are pregnant, in particular, should avoid tuna entirely.
