On average, how long does your body take to fully digest a meal?

Report as

From what I know it can take the human body about four to six hours to fully digest a meal. You should make sure you chew your food up good so that you do not have any digestion issues.

It depends on how much fiber you have eaten and the amount of fluids that you have taken in.

It totally depends on the meal. Fish, chicken and turkey digest much quicker than beef or pork.
