What changes to my urine can I expect? How do you get rid of ketones in your urine?

Ketosis will probably change your urine: it can develop a filmy consistency and potent smell, this is normal. However, if your urine is darker than usual, drink more water with electrolytes to ensure you are well hydrated. A light straw color indicates adequate hydration. But, some supplements also impact the color of urine, for example vitamin B supplements can make it quite a bright orange color!

When you are in ketosis, or taking exogenous ketones, any excess is removed via your urine. The ketones are not turned back into fat and if you make too much, or take too many ketone supplements they simply get excreted when you pee.
