Ok... so how long should it take to properly digest food?

I had an indian takeaway tonight and about an hour later some...ahem...fairly loose bowel functions:blush:

ew, I know. Does this mean i havent properly absorbed the food? Just wanna know if i should feel guilty about the calories or not :P

    I find that if I have a pasta dish with a grated cheese topping, the whole thing will exit me within half an hour, like as if the meal never gets processed. When I asked the question on TheSite a couple of months back, it was suggested that it could be an allergy. The thing it, it never started happening until about a year ago, then like the flick of a light switch...

    Sorry I couldn't answer more relevant, but just to throw an alergy idea to you as a suggestion.

    We'll see what other posters say :-)

    Food associated illness is also a possibility.

    I hear that happening a lot. I don't know why the boyfriend and his friends like to talk about bowel movements but having dinner go right through you doesn't seem all that uncommon as I've heard a million conversations about it. Especially if it was greasy or spicy for some reason.
