    Does your pee get darker when you're losing weight? If so, do you know why? Sorry to upset the delicate ones here. :eek3:

    Mine didn't. It's actually pretty clear because of all the water I drink

    if you're properly hydrated I don't see why your urine would be dark regardless of losing weight.

    It means you're not drinking enough water.

    it's about how concentrated your urine is, as long as you keep your fluids up you're most likely fine.

    If your pee is getting dark, you are very dehydrated. Start pounding water.

    At Least 64oz a day.

    Mine actually started to turn green, I think it might be from all the protein??? I know I haven't upped my Vitamin C intake, which I know causes green pee.

    Either your not drinking enough water, or your kidneys are failing

    You're dehydrated! You should have at least 3 clear pisses a day.

    Sounds like it. Or massive kidney failure, whichever comes first.


    If you are taking enough water soluable vitamins to drastically change your pee color, you are probably taking too many fat soluable vitamins with them.

    Cut back on the supplements for a little while and up your water intake.

    I thought he said "Does your pee pee get darker when you're losing weight?" Shit!

    I didn't think anything if it b/c the title said Gross-out weight loss question.

    I don't know, I don't take any supplements at all. I noticed the change when I started doing the Special K diet, with their cereal, protein bars, protein water, etc. That's why I thought maybe it was the sudden increase in protein consumption.

    So a whole 10g increase in protein is going to increase your urine color? Do you drink energy drinks or anything?

    Well I started eating the chicken in the can and tuna steaks as well. I don't drink any energy drinks at all. I don't know what caused it, I just noticed it after I started the Special K thing...:dunno:

    I drank plenty of fluids today, and had a light pee, so it's not a kidney thing. My mother once told me a long time ago when I was a junior dieter that when your body burns fat, your urine will be darker because that's the end product from the fat burning. She called it ash. I thought I would ask about it here.

    i've lost 100 (well i cheated on my diet yesterday so it's a bit less than 100 but i'm gonna round up) pounds so far and my piss is clear. I drink 128oz of water a day not counting shakes etc.
    be nice to your kidneys and drink some water.

    As in 3 of your total urination events are clear or you only piss three times a day?


    With all the water I drink I probably piss about every 30-45 minutes.

    Drink more water.

    During cuts my pee is basically clear due to drinking only water and lots of it.

    I would expect a "gross-out" weight loss question to be like "is this mold on my penis growing because of my rapid weight loss? *pic*"
