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 ; )

Answer:

thanks, i was just hoping that i was waiting long enough for my creatine not to be wasted and get mixed up with the food.

Answer:

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?

Pork - 4 1/2 to 5 hours 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)?

Answer:

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

Answer:

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)? 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"

Answer:

true, i just didnt know if there was some kind of standard amount of time. and obviously there is if someone found a chart.

Answer:

Digestion Time Of Various Foods
... 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.)


Answer:

As has been pointed out- gastic emptying does not equal "digestion". Keep that in mind.
