View Full Version : how long should digestion take?
08-17-2007, 06:22 PM
Right now I'm at 4 hrs from ingestion to expulsion. After my 30+ day fast I was down to 3hrs.
Is this good? Bad?
Should it be more? less?
or does it matter at all.

It really varies for everyone. I have gastroparesis. That's damage to the vagus nerve to the stomach. So for me, food can sit there for a few days before it's digested. That's bad.

So I drank a cup of beet juice at 9am on Sunday. It began to make it's way out by 11:30 am! I was astonished!

I'd say each BODY is different. Don't worry 'bout it!

I poo all the time (not diahrrea, normal) so I'm not sure how long it's taking for stuff to clear out of me, as I can't identify any differences......but yeah I'd assume <12 hours for me.

i dont think there is much of a difference between 3-4 hrs. generally the quicker digestion, the better in my experience as long as it isn't too too quick. i personally feel best if i go twice a day but im not up to that level yet on a regular basis. i usually go every day but occasionally skip a day or two. im working on tweaking my diet to make myself more regular.
but yeah, you sound fine to me.
