    I had that on induction as well, really bright shiny yellow, I think it's something to do with ketosis.

    Is it normal to get a change in urine color when you eat a lot of protein?
    I am calorie counting, not atkins, but I am very much limiting my carb intake. I am a vegetarian, and now eating a lot of eggs, mushrooms, quorn and soya protein as well as low fat cheese. I also eat green veg.
    The max carbs i will usually have is one slice of medium sliced brown bread. I am drinking a lot more than I usually do too, yet find my urine a bright yellow shade.

    That was me as well xkawaiix, in fact one day it seemed to me to be bright green. LOL

    I took a general vitamin supplement during induction maybe that was it, unless you are not taking anything?
