How long does it take to digest?

If I ate a hamburger with french fries and a cold drink (soda) to drink, How long would it take before I see it I don't necessarily look at my poop unless something doesn't seem

But seriously how long before I poopit out? I know too much info.

I just don't seem I go as often as I should :(

  • LOL!! You do need to get out more. I guess it depends on your system. I have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and it could be minutes or hours.

  • Try using Fiber Sure (from the Metamucil people)--I have IBS, and have had chronic constipation my whole life (as a teen, I went 1x a week!! There was a lot of straining, but no pain or blood or anything. If I went 2x, that was a miracle!!)!! It really helps. I like it the best out of all the fiber concoctions out there on the market now--I use the powder--Generally, it stirs quite well, and if not, it tastes sweet, almost like cotton candy or sugar, so it's just an extra little treat!! Good Luck and msg. me, if you want. :)
