How Long Does It Take For Food To Digest And "Make Way" For The Next Meal?


The question may sound awkward and perhaps funny too. I am concerned about how long you need to wait after a meal to start on the next one. The general impression is that feeling hungry is a good indicator that it is time for your next meal. All the answers available online to the question of how long it takes for food to digest, hover around the 75-hour range. This creates the awareness that we eat a meal before the previous meal has completed the digestion process. If you are an expert in this field I would be much obliged if you care to discuss. Many thanks.

    Thanks Doctor, grazing is a great idea but that way the system does not get much of a rest right? Thanks for your opinion. :)

    Yeah, they say drinking too much water with a meal messes up the digestive process. Thank you for your very interesting response. :)

    I am inclined to think that your "poo" is from a meal eaten a day or so previous. It does not happen that fast.
