    Red face Does your body poop out excess calories and fat from a huge meal? (srs) (4k reps)

    How much fat does your body store from a meal and how much do you shyt out?

    Does it hold onto as much fat/cals as possible and then excrete the rest, or does it hold on to all of it and poop out the waste from previous meals?

    Basically, if you eat a whole pizza, does your body hold onto 99% of it, or 75% and poop our 25%.

    Surely there is no way your body could absorb the whole pizza... or can it?

    Your body only has 30-60 minutes to digest your meal. Nowhere within the 20 feet of intestine that it travels before being excreted does further digestion/absorption occur.

    You may not utilize all the calories, but I would assume that you would get most from it. Now if you were to overload on say 10k calories, I would say your less likely to absorb all the calories from 1) the sheer volume of it and 2) body's reaction to such an increase (especially if you've been sitting at a continuous calorie intake for long periods of time). Honestly not sure on the efficiency of one large overloaded meal - now excess calories over time is an obvious answer, one meal, I'm not certain

    So all these years of evolution, and humans eating ****loads at once because they couldn't store it, doesn't work?



    If you eat lots, it will take a long time to digest.

    haven't found a study on this yet but there is an amount of energy that is in feces obviously. some places in the world use animal dung for fuel (burn feces instead of wood).

    think about it like this tho: our body is an amazing machines built for survival. it will get as much as it can from every food source and try to store it for fat because it helps us prepare for times of starvation. completely absorbing one meal full of fat can take around 10 hours, so if you eat a huge meal it's more likely that your body will just take its time and absorb as much as possible.

    lol never been there.


    so basically, if you eat a pizza every day for a year, your body will get used to it and store the whole pizza

    and if you eat clean all year and have one pizza one day, your body will flush it out

    am i right?

    Your body isn't 100% efficient, and it certainly doesn't "poop out what you don't need." As was mentioned, your food spends a certain amount of time in your small intestine. Once it's past that, nothing else is getting digested. Fecal matter is mainly undigested food(fiber, fat, protein) and bacteria. Your body naturally tries to take up as many nutrients as possible, but it's really a race against the clock as far as how much it can get during the time that it's in the small bowels.

    Utter rubbish ^. Have you heard of the ileum and duodenum?

    OP this may interest you -

    "Normally, feces are made up of 75 percent water and 25 percent solid matter. About 30 percent of the solid matter consists of dead bacteria; about 30 percent consists of indigestible food matter such as cellulose; 10 to 20 percent is cholesterol and other fats; 10 to 20 percent is inorganic substances such as calcium phosphate and iron phosphate; and 2 to 3 percent is protein."

    our bodies are super efficient on absorbing energy. I would say 98% the thermic effect of food would burn more calories than what you would poop.

    Um ALL absorption of nutrients occurs in the small intestine. And digestion occurs in the mouth, stomach, and duodenum(as well as some later downstream).

    food stays in your stomach for 2-5 hours . . .

    Food stays in your small intestin for another 3-7 hours . . .

    http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/dig...system/an00896

    I dont believe it stays in your system for 24-72 hours. because after eating chipotle or blueberries or corn i can tell when i pass it, and it is usually within 24 hours. But, it all depends on how much you eat.

    I'm on rc guys so pm me tomorrow if you want reps

    so basically what we learned here, is that your body will just take longer to digest a huge meal, and get the most of of it as possible.

    take your poop, dry it out. and then burn it. See how much heat is released.

    Often wondered this exact question.

    I suspect that in addition to what's been said already, the amount of calories that are actually absorbed would also have to do with what you ate; i.e., the percentage you retain of a protein shake is probably higher than a steak.

    Wouldn't work...considering much of what is in there is fiber(undigestable and doesn't count towards calories) and bacteria(which will artificially raise the caloric count).

    I always worried about this, therefore I poop in a small container and eat it during the day.

Honestly not sure on the efficiency of one large overloaded meal - now excess calories over time is an obvious answer, one meal, I'm not certain
    I thought you were being sarcastic at first. Have you taken a bio class? It's one of the first things we learned this year, and this is what happens:
    Your mouth mechanically digests food. It goes down to your stomach where pepsinogen breaks down protein and amino acids for absorption and turns your food into acid chyme. Juices from your gallbladder and pancreas are released to neutralize the low pH and as it goes down your intestines, everything left is absorbed. Fat turns into globules and enters your lymphatic system with amino acids and carbs being absorbed into your entire body. The rest of the acid chyme like fiber and cellulose and some vitamins go into your colon where bacteria digest some of the things you can't and release vitamins, and then the rest is your feces which you **** out. That's an oversimplified version but eh.

    Right Im not sure if this sounds retarded but it sound okay in my head...



    How does bulking/cutting work then if you only digest a certain amount because surely it wouldn't make a difference if you took more or less calories because it can only digest so much of it?



    And if It takes 10 hours to digest a big meal then what happens when you eat like 2 big meals a day + other food which is 24+ hours worth of digesting then you eat the next day the same and you never manage to stop digesting. would it just keep stacking the digestion times then in theory you'd never stop digesting even if you stopped eating after a few weeks of big meals?

    it is in the small intestines that MOST of the nutrients and macros is absorbed. Dont know where you read your chit but food can stay up to 2-3 hours in your stomach especially if you ate red meat. Food is broken down in the mouth and stomach, it gets absorbed in the intestines. Only certain nutrients get absorbed in the stomach such as fructose and certain minerals and vitamins. Protein and fats gets absorbed exclusively in the intestines.
