In general, acute toxicity occurs at doses of 25,000 IU/kg of body weight, with chronic toxicity occurring at 4,000 IU/kg of body weight daily for 6–15 months.[35] However, liver toxicities can occur at levels as low as 15,000 IU per day to 1.4 million IU per day, with an average daily toxic dose of 120,000 IU per day, particularly with excessive consumption of alcohol. In people with renal failure, 4000 IU can cause substantial damage. In addition, excessive alcohol intake can increase toxicity. Children can reach toxic levels at 1,500 IU/kg of body weight. Excessive vitamin A consumption can lead to nausea, irritability, anorexia (reduced appetite), vomiting, blurry vision, headaches, hair loss, muscle and abdominal pain and weakness, drowsiness, and altered mental status. In chronic cases, hair loss, dry skin, drying of the mucous membranes, fever, insomnia, fatigue, weight loss, bone fractures, anemia, and diarrhea can all be evident on top of the symptoms associated with less serious toxicity. It would be practically impossible to overdose on Vitamin A unless you take a very strong suppliment :P.

Have you ever considered weight watchers? They take your weight, sex and a few other things into consideration and then calculate how many "points" you should be eating in a day. Instead of counting calories, you count points, which is much easier. If you are serious about losing weight, you may way to to try it. I did weight watchers and lost 77 lbs in less than a year. I felt like I was ALWAYS eating, but when I actually counted my calories, I realized that I was only eating 1200 calories a day, but because I was making healthy choices, I was eating way more, and losing weight. I never attended weight watchers meetings; I did it all online only. It was amazing. I'm pregnant now, but as soon as I have the baby, I'm going right back on. Good luck! www.weightwatchers.com

I dont know if you can actually consume a fatal amount, a bottle of carrot juice wont do it edit: @ the idiot vegan girl there are so many disorders associated with low amino acid count, but there are also so many amino acids that you would have a hard time naming them all common protein defficiency symptoms •Edema - A collection of fluid under the skin, which most commonly affects the legs, feet, and ankles, but can occur anywhere on the body. •Weight loss •Thinning or brittle hair, hair loss •Ridges or deep lines in finger and toe nails •Skin becomes very light, burns easily in the sun •Reduced pigmentation in the hair on scalp and body •Skin rashes, dryness, flakiness •General weakness and lethargy •Muscle soreness and weakness, cramps •Slowness in healing wounds, cuts, scrapes, and bruises •Bedsores and other skin ulcers •Difficulty sleeping •Headache •Nausea and stomach pain •Fainting if you dont get the amino acids your body needs then you die, not to mention low iron leads to anemia

No one has died from taking too many vitamins in the past 30 years, and probably longer than that, but that is as far as the studies have gone back.

Listen, stop beating around the bush.. Acai berry is a scam.. If you want something that will help you lose weight then drink green tea. At least it has "independent" scientific research backing it. Acai is the biggest joke that is spammed around here. The idea about weight loss is simple.. Burn more calories than you consume in a day.
