    How long after a meal until it is conisdered a "empty stomach"

    When it comes to taking supplements that are reccomended to be taken on an empty stomach. After a medium sized meal, somewhere around 500 or 600 calories, how long would one have to wait until their stomach would be considered "empty" and you could get the best possible absorption from supplements?

    According to controlled labs rep (because their products have to be taken on empty stomachs), at least 30 minutes.

    correct, 30-45 minutes on average, but it depends what you eat. some things move through the digestive tract faster than others.

    For a meal that size, 45 mintues seems very ideal. Then go to the gym 45 mintues later for a KICK @$$ w/O!!!!

    A meal of eggs will digest faster then a meal of hubba bubba gum. Eating and "average" meal I would guess 36min.

    Do you have to feel empty? I will eat about 2 hours before my workout and take my sups/multis 30min before workout yet I still feel full... Do i need to try and take a dump before hand?

    depends on how long you sit down after your meal for, roughly about 30-45 mins, perferable 45-60min. also dont drink alot of water with your meal, this will only dilute the stomache acids & take longer for digestion

    like everyone said, it takes around 45 minutes or so before your stomach should be fairly empty. however, for me at least, supps that must be taken on an empty stomach work best when taken 1.5 hours after a meal

    I always though it took 1-2 hours for food to digest. I could eat a normal sized lunch at 12pm and still feel full at 1:30-2:00pm. I guess the fullness factor doesnt really mean food hasnt been digested?

    This is great. Now I can actually have some energy in the gym with a pre workout shake 45-60 min prior! I used to waite 1.5 hours after eating then just get jacked to **** on stims.
