    how long does oatmeal take to digest??

    for breakfast everyday i have a cup of oats and 1 or 2 scoops whey protein. after that i usually wait 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hour to take my green bulge and caffeine and head to the gym. my question is am i waiting too long?? i know that these supps need to be taken on an empty stomach but i have no idea what that exactly means. does anyone know if 45 mins or maybe 1 hour is plenty of time?? someone help. i dont want to wait too long and lose some extra energy that i might get from the food. thanks.

    There's no way you're going to figure out how long your meal takes to digest and there's not going to be a study on this subject to give you an answer aside from Whey's digestion timeframe. However your timing seems appropriate. Don't worry your not going to hinder your gains because you haven't digested all of your oatmeal ; )

    Are those the times to enter your intestines? Or are those really times to complete digestion? I find that hard to believe. Are they standard amounts because the more you eat the longer it takes to empty your stomach?

    Or are those time to get absorbed once they are in the intestines?

    Is this the time it takes to leave the stomach? In which case, wouldn't all that depend on the meals composition (ie. fat/fiber content)?
    The only time you'll ever see 'success' before 'work' is in the dictionary

    i think u may wait a lil too long.. after i have my oatmeal w/ blueberries and cinnamon and a protein shake i hit the gym about a half hour later.. it really makes no difference to you.. if you want to wait that long or not.. it depends on how well ur genes digest what you eat.. sure oatmeal may take about 90 minutes to digest, but the whey shake and the amino acids are prob fully through ur body already as its digested in nearly 45 minutes or so..

    its no big deal ur just giving ur body a rest before the gym.. u have no worries

    I would guess so. Plus I read the stomach only 'feeds' the intestines the amount they can handle at one time. So if you eat a huge meal it takes longer to empty from the stomach. which makes sense to me. I definitely feel fuller for longer with a 'large' meal of the same composition as a smaller one.

    There must be tonnes of info on the net about this though.

    asking a question like that is like asking "how long does it take to run a mile", "how much does a person weigh"

    If you review the source of this information - http://www.angelfire.com/ny2/bass/sequential.html - a sequential eating advocate's site - you'll have a "better understanding" of the numbers ...

    This was left out of the original quote...

    (Editor's notes:
    Note1: raw animal proteins have much faster digestion times than the above times for cooked/heated animal proteins.
    Note2: The digestion times given are under an ideal situation of eating only one food, chewing well, and having efficient digestion, as is the case e.g. after a fast. They are digestion times for optimally healthy persons, with good eating habits. The digestion times are to a large part derived from Dr. Gian-Cursio's and Dr. Bass' practices.
    Digestion times are much longer on a conventional diet, and for persons with non-optimized digestive systems, or persons lacking in energy, and for meals with many ingredients put together haphazardly = not in the optimum sequential order.)

    As has been pointed out- gastic emptying does not equal "digestion". Keep that in mind.
    No sir, I don't like it.

    Good question - The guy below that put the digest time for different foods, etc. gives a good idea of what to do. These guys that say to push it are flat wrong. If the blood is in your stomach digesting, what are you making your heart do to get enough blood to stretch the muscle fibers. Stay with your gut and keep asking good question and don't mess with the hype of how everything is ok as long as your mind is disengaged.

    What? Blood in the stomach digesting? What is the answer to your own question: What is he making his heart do? Blood stretches muscle fibers?

    hey this is great, are you just writing this from experience or is there any online sources you can find some rates of digestion for foods, because I was wondering about the digestion of oats, you say it takes 90 minutes is that per cup? does the amount matter or is it always 90 minutes?

    You obviously failed to read the entire thread, especially posts #11 & 12.

    I read all the posts and no where does it say the quantity of food that is digesting, like 90 minutes for oats? how much oats digests in 90 minutes, a cup, two cups? just seeing if anybody knew.

    What a waste of time on a 2007 thread, yet still, someone above keeps saying its 8 years old and you guys still reply back to the thread and ask OP questions!!! stop bumping old threads please.

    I can verify that 90 minutes for oats is correct. I have an ileostomy (no large intestine/colon) so I know for sure. (I get all nutrients since the large guy only (re)absorbs water and digests only coarse fiber nutrition-wise (2 kcal / gram) but don't maintain foods or non-clear fluids which all evacuate in full volume telling me exactly digestion times). Nice huh? #Science.
    The oats might stay longer in the small intestine but the energy (cals) is absorbed by 90 minutes. I know this because of evacuation starting after pretty much 90 minutes when no lipase or protease-requiring foods are eating/drank prior to that.
    If you want me to test a food for you just pm or email to ileonurus@gmail.com.
    Cheers.
