WebMD has a nice article on this topic. See here: Changes in urine colour

I've copied-and-pasted the most relevant section...

These are some of the foods that may change the colour of urine:

  • Dark yellow or orange: carrots
  • Green: asparagus
  • Pink or red: beetroot, blackberries, rhubarb
  • Brown: fava beans, rhubarb

These are some of the medicines and vitamins that can change the colour of urine:

  • Yellow or yellow-green: cascara, sulfasalazine, the B vitamins
  • Orange: rifampicin, sulfasalazine, the B vitamins, vitamin C
  • Pink or red: phenolphthalein, propofol, rifampicin, laxatives containing senna
  • Green or blue: amitriptyline, cimetidine, indomethacin, promethazine, propofol, triamterene, several multi-vitamins
  • Brown or brownish-black: levodopa, metronidazole, nitrofurantoin, some anti-malarial agents, methyldopa, laxatives containing cascara or senna

These are the medical conditions that can change the colour of urine:

  • Yellow: concentrated urine caused by dehydration
  • Orange: a problem with the liver or bile duct
  • Pink or red: blood in the urine (see below), haemoglobinuria (a condition linked to haemolytic anaemia), myoglobinuria (a condition linked to the destruction of muscle cells)
  • Deep purple: porphyria, a rare inherited red blood cell disorder
  • Green or blue: urinary tract infection may cause green urine if caused by pseudomonas bacteria; familial hypercalcaemia, a rare genetic condition, can cause blue urine
  • Brown or dark brown: blood in the urine (see below), a liver or kidney disorder
  • If the urine appears cloudy or murky, it may be a sign of a urinary tract infection or kidney stones.

For ladies: If you take Azo for UTI relief it WILL make your pee a reddish orange. Don't freak out, it will stop in a day. If it lasts longer you should see a doctor.

This is what rhabdo pee looks like. It has nothing to do with hydration and everything to do with working out to the extreme. Boxers get the same. If you bust your ass in the gym there's a high likelihood your pee will be discolored but not necessarily due to dehydration.
