from eating to pooping: fifteen minutes
I occasionally find that, after ingesting food from certain local restaurants, I very quickly experience abdominal disruptions and have to rush the toilet ASAP. There I will jettison, in 2-3 blasts, vast quantities of burning brown liquid from my rectum. The timing of which has been as short as fifteen minutes after eating.
Is this a reaction to the food? Should I continue to eat? Is it possible that the food could have passed all the way through my guts in such a short period of time?
Thanks for the question.
I would be very doubtful that the food actually made it all the way through in fifteen minutes, unless the restaurant in question was White Castle. I swear, those things are excreted immediately upon swallowing. You might as well just take them from the bag and throw them straight in the toilet.
My guess is that it is some reaction to the food, or the spices, or something.
The only way to really tell is by keeping track of where you eat when this happens, what you eat, how it is prepared, who served it, what time of day it is, the atmospheric pressure, and the phase of the moon. This kind of record keeping will require a large notebook to be carried with you everywhere you go. A PDA could also be used, I suppose.
Good luck with your investigation, and let us know what happens if you ever figure it out.

Got a question for her?
