how much food can the stomach hold

Report as

Most references agree that the stomach of an adult can hold 2-4 liters of food when fully distended. This amount is fifty times more than the stomach's volume when empty. See the comparison from various sources here: http://hypertextbook.com/facts/2000/JonathanCheng.shtml
