I have a few questions regarding digestion--ok, here it goes. For instance, If one was to eat a piece of chicken, what would be the point of eating again in 3 hours if that chicken is still trying to digest? And does anyone know a rough estimate to how long a piece of chicken takes to digest? Isnt it around 6-7 hours? Also, how long does it take for egg whites to digest? Additionally, how about whey isolate--is it digested instantly or does it take a few mins? Just a few questions i had in mind. Thanks!

Well if it does take 6 hours to digest Chicken you'd still need to eat again in 3 hours .... becasue obviously the new chicken is not gonna be digested for another 6 hours.

Other things come in to play here, in terms of digestion, like Fat, carbs and fibre. Im certain that it doesn't take that long to digest although I'm not sure on the exact times.

Certain Proteins are broken down quicker then others ..... Whey being fastest ..... and Casien being one of the slowest.

Hope any of this helps.

Anyone got anything to add ?
