Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the darker nipples that you describe after your change in diet without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Hormonal changes and changes in diet can affect your body functions and cause changes in skin texture or appearance. If worried, or if the changes are prominent, you should consider visiting your doctor/dermatologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Further treatment option as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) would be started to help you control the symptoms.
Take care.
