it does have that effect - don't worry tho, decrease the carrots and you will return back to the way you were before. new moms find this out when their babies start eating veggies - my kids loved carrots, so they ate them quite often - they took on an "oompa loompa" look for awhile.

Silly as it sounds, I know for a fact that chickens's legs will turn the color of the food you give them but I have not observed this in humans lol, does eating carrots in humans cause yellow undertones as well?? If so how long does it take...I might be interested...please dont judge me!!

I found this study. I don't know if it also extends to carrots. It says though that it can be found in plants:
