Answer 1

It depends on what you have eaten. Some foods (such as food with poor nutrition - ie junk food) digest fast while others digest slowly.

On average it takes about 24 hours to digest your food completely, ready to pass out the other end. Sometimes this can extend to 30-48 hours.

Answer 2

Digestion is by no means a quick process, taking around 24-48 hours. The food spends around 30 minutes - 2 hours getting to the small intestine, 2-6 hours getting all the nutrients extracted, and the rest in the intestines.

Answer 3

It'll take about 24 hours to go through your whole body.
