If you eat quite a view beets, your urine it will have a red, dark orange color, especially if you are drinking beet juice, your urine will get very red/dark orange, in some cases brownish in color. The intensity of color, of course, is due to your water intact, other foods/liquids like coffee, carrots etc..
The color change lasts about a day or two, depending on your water intake and the amount of beets you ate. If it is much longer after you had beets I would go to your doctor.
Oh, I love beets, and a lot of carrots can also cause a similar effect.
