I know you can OD on certain vitamins, but what about fruits and vegetables? If you eat too many carrots I'm sure you can OD on vitamin A. What about if I'm throwing back 7-8 bananas per day? or if I eat alot of a certain fruit?

If it fits in your macro's then your not "overdosing"

It is REALLY hard to eat too many veggies. THese are typically "free foods" when someone is dieting down real hard for a competition and gets hungry. They eat veggies and drink water to keep them fuller longer.

Most vitamin OD dosages refer only to synthetic vitamins, not natural food sources. I dont know if this is true for all of them though.

Hypervitaminosis A is caused by overconsumption of preformed vitamin A, not carotenoids ... and it's associated with long-term consumption of preformed vitamin A in excess of 10 times the RDA ...

Unlike preformed Vitamin A (retinol) (from animal or supplemental origins), carotenoids (from plant origins) do not exhibit the same toxic effects if consumed in "excess" doses ... You might turn a different shade though :D

Yes, you can OD off vegetables. 400 pounds of carrots has enough of a chemical to kill you.

oh thank god! I only eat 360LB's of carrots a day.

If I ate an additional 40LB's of spinach would I still be ok? My mom always says "eat your veggies michael!!" I'm kinda worried.

I think you'll be OK ... I'm looking at the MSDS's and the LD50 on carrots is 666.6 lbs.
