It varies, so I don't know if I can vote. I'll have to think about it. The rule seems to be if we're at a restaurant, then I need to poop whenever we're in the middle of our trip home. I hate that.

I'm with Daph. There is no rule for me but I've had some very close calls coming back from restaurants. It's been a topic before on these pages . . . damn chefs only care about flavor and mouth feel and not at all about transit time through your poor gut. Bastards . . .

with me its first thing in the morning and then again maybe later that night. Something I dont understand here and maybe we can open this up for debate. I want to know IF a person has miles of intestines then how can they say that food runs right through me? Now I would have to say that if you had a previous meal perhaps the meal you are currently eating causes rapid mass peristalsis causing the previous meal to run through you. But with all that intestinal tract I would think it would be impossible for food to do this yet people say it all the time. Its quite vexing.

Thunderous, I have a confession to make regarding that. At the little store in our community, someone sells these black sesame seed chunk snacks. They're so healthy and totally yummy. And they "announce" when they're "done", if you get my drift. Some days I eat a bunch of them to see how long food does take to make the round trip from one end to the other. It doesn't take that long sometimes. From lunch to late evening.

What I think happens with this topic is the new meal forces the old meal out. At any one time, a healthy intestinal tract would have 2 meals in it easily - the one you ate a while ago, and the one that's just made its appearance. With luck, this is the way it is. Luck and fiber.

Given that my intestines are just a cruel joke, first thing I do before I eat is to locate the nearest facility for the imminent carnage. Sometimes even thinking about eating makes my brown eye blink.

In most cases I have to crap about one hour after I eat. Some days it comes in the morning about an hour after I eat breakfast. I hate using the toilets at school so early in the morning because they smell from others doing what I'm doing. Also, many of the girls don't flush and that's gross. On days when I don't crap in the morning, it comes at the end of 5th hour--about an hour after my lunch. I hate sitting on the toilets then because they tend to be dirtier than earlier in the day. Some of the seats have droppings of pee on them and I don't particularly like shitting in a toilet bowl that has a Doctor Pepper can floating in it or a tampon or two competing for floating space. And I can just hear the next user bitch me out for not flushing. Last Saturday night my boyfriend and I went to dinner and a movie. Both of us had to crap about an hour after our dinner. He complained about long lines and dirty toilets at the theatre. He said he hated sitting down in public toilets. What's weekly for him is a daily requirement for me and it's almost timed to the hour.

I actually know the answer to this question because I eat an unusually large meal every Friday night for Shabbat. Basically, it's a three-course meal served up by the Chabad House on my campus, and you know how students are. We take advantage of free food, so I eat the three-course meal and then generally take a crap when I get home afterward. This weekly satisfying crap is one of the many benefits of participating in religious activities.

I'd have to say my guts are pretty regular with evacuation procedures. Every morning I poop. It takes a little longer to get the job done these days with lil' shitwit #2 rapidly growing in size and slowing down the poop chute's speed limit. But that's still not always the case. I ate too much Taco Bell on Friday at work, then I had to shit like mad the next morning. I'd already done the deed at home, then as we turned a corner in the car Saturday morning my guts shifted enough to announce I needed to shit ASAP. I blew up the bathroom at Dunkin Donuts with very quick, hot shit (at first). Then the slow moving logs made their way out. People kept knocking on the door and telling me to hurry up. That's probably the most shameful I can be. Otherwise I don't care. Shit stinks, get over it.

Mr shitwit on the other hand seems to be able to eat 2 BigMacs and then shit immediately afterwards. It must be pushing out the previous meal. Otherwise it seems that the turd wouldn't have time to form into a turd and it would just come out looking like a chewed up BigMac, right? Hmmmmm. I'll ponder that thought while I try to do my taxes today.

I think that eating often stimulates the bowels to move. To make room, or because we have trained ourselves to shit after we eat because of the mutual proximity of eating and shitting facilities. There's no way one could shit out what they eat in less than five or six hours, simply because of the distance it has to travel.

I never did get eating dinner before a movie. While the movie times make it easier to go out before, there are also earlier showings. It always seemed easier to go out to the movie first, then go out to dinner. This way, you have something to talk about, too, while eating. Some of my dates had been boring, and it would have been nice to have the movie first for conversation afterwards.

And, of course, this way you don't have to take a dump in the middle of a show that you most likely paid at least 7 bucks to see.

For me, the amout of food I eat makes no difference on pooping time. I can eat as much as I want, and I still find myself in the bathroom at 7:30am, every morning.

The only exception is, if I fry in olive oil, have broccoli, and drink apricot juice, all in one sitting. Then I find myself shitting my brains out within three hours.

I would say about 9 hours, since I generally poop in the morning, after I wake up. I sometimes have a secondary shit after the first few sips of coffee. That brew really cuts the cake.

My timing has nothing to do with meals per se. Only has to do with the total amount of fiber and water I've consumed during the day. If I've had about 30 gm. of fiber and a generous amount of water in a day, I't's going to be turd time after the second or third cup of coffee the next day. I have no idea what would happen if I didn't have the coffee. I'm addicted to the stuff, but maybe I should try to go cold turkey just one day to see what would happen.

So a buddy of mine went running yesterday and swears that two corn dogs he ate an hour before caused him to have to crap every 10 feet(obvious exageration). I don't think the two corn dogs have anything to do with his crapping spell but he insists that it does. Does anyone out there really know the answer to this question?

We have been debating it for 2 and a half hours and thank god for PoopReport.com cause now we can finally get some anwsers and some closer in our lives!

I agree with those who've said it already, there's too much intestine to traverse to crap what you just ate...it has to be the previous meal...if not something before that. What I want to know is if there's anybody out there that has to go back to the can three times? I take my time, figure I'm finished and five minutes later I'm back...and then, I repeat the ritual - what's up with that? And boy, talk about some close calls through the years.

For myself I voted "irrelevant." I have a sort of schedule, and eating a big meal very rarely changes it. Last night I had a huge meal at a Mexican restaurant; no poop afterward, as I expected. This morning, as usual, after being up maybe half an hour, I got the urge, went in, and had a normal, if quite large, bowel movement. Unless I'm sick, that's the routine (with perhaps an additional b.m. later in the day), big meal or no.
That being said, I know it's not that way for everyone. A co-worker I knew some years ago took a trip to Mexico and returned with Montezuma's Revenge. She was miserable for a couple of weeks, and she said that, if she at something, it came through virtually unchanged literally five minutes later. She proved it one day by trying a bit of lunch, excusing herself before finishing it, and saying as she returned, "I saw it all again. Unbelievable." She survived all that, but was living proof that transit time can be extremely brief if you get certain types of diarrhea.

Yesterday we went to a town about an hour away, just to look around. We walked a bit, windowshopped, then went to a favorite restaurant. Lunch was big: a 2/3 plate beef liver with onions, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, roll, and big rice pudding for dessert--all large portions, all delicious, all gone. We looked in at a couple more shops, and I began to feel The Feeling. We stopped to gas up the car (I let off some of my own), and the feeling intensified; but I decided not to go in there to poop. The urgency grew slowly all the way home, and when we got there I went straight to the bathroom. Surprisingly stubborn at first, the resulting b.m. proved to be my most satisfying in a long time: thick, fairly firm (unusually so for me right now), and c. 10" long. Worth the hour-and-a-half wait after that big lunch, which I know was responsible for moving it down the pipe. An unusual experience for me.

Good thread!

I'm not sure, but I think I have IBS or at least a spastic colon. Usually, I'm almost guaranteed to need to have a shit within an hour of eating. Although as others have said, it also depends on *what* I eat. For some reason, bacon sets me off very fast.

The Thunderous Crapper asked about how those miles of intestine would respond so quickly. My guess is that (at least in my case) as soon as I eat and food enters the alimentary canal, it sets off spasms that work their way down to the bottom end of things and then bang, the cramps start and the deed needs to be done.

Speaking of which, I just got up a little whil ago and a load is waiting for delivery. Have a great day ya shitters! :-)

I cant vote in this poll as no option applies. Forgetting my IBS's influence for a moment, regardless of the size of the meal, it is 95% of the time, 4 hours till the long drop, after the meal. Reconsidering the IBS, if someone puts the shits up me, then it could be within 10 mins.

Years ago when I had pancreatitis, the meal came out just the way I chewed it mixed with soft brown pooh. I could see everything I ate approximately 2 hrs later at the bottom of the toilet. Seeing my food mixed with feces caused me to loose my appetite and develop anorexia. It lasted about 18 mo. Now I can't answer the poll because a months worth of meals won't produce a bowel movement.

I wish I could relate to all of you but I seriously hardly ever take a poop. It takes pills to even make it happen. I have been this way my entire life and nowat 44 I really am sick of it. Any suggestions?

Back to the main thread here: Last night we went out to eat in order to evade all the election callers; we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant and had an excellent supper (Small Chimichanga for me). We also had a coupon for Barnes and Noble, so after supper we got in the car to go there, maybe a 10-15 minute drive. On the way I felt my rectum fill; once there, I went to their very nice bathroom and had a most satisfying movement, which I have no doubt was directly stimulated by that nice large Mexican meal. Yee hah.

70% of the time after i eat i get the urgent need to run to the bathroom . Here is my delima , in two days i have a dinner date with a nice young lady i am interested in. Its our first date and we are going to a steak house. Now as of wednesday night i am writing this the date is friday. Any good sugestions how i can save myself the embarassment of the emergency poop? my plan now is to eat a large meal thursday afternoon and light dinner , maybe soup - then friday morning drink alot of coffee - that usally does a good job of cleaning me out. then eat nothing for the rest of my day untill the date. i'm already facing bad vibes , the last date i went on i went to the same place and then next door for drinks . Thank god i ran into some friends who entertained my date while i found the bathroom at the other end of the bar ! i have a phobia of using public restrooms to make things even worse. any suggestions will be greatly appriciated. kudo's to the makers of this site - i couldnt belive it when i did a search and actually found osmeplace to ask questions lol

Be prepared simply to excuse yourself during the meal or before you leave the restaurant; it's nothing gross or unusual. I should think the girl would admire your courage rather than being offended. If the urge waits till later, just obey it then. How much worse (than excusing yourself) would an accident be?

I just love how people have such a hard time believing that food can be pooped out so fast. My mom got down to 80 pounds and she's six feet tall, due to crohn's disease, where her food flew right through her and she absorbed no nutrients. I have a similar problem. I only eat once a day and I poop right after, and I rarely poop at any other time during the day. And I don't eat at the same time everyday. So go figure. I think my belly just bypassing my intestines and goin straight to the colon.

I am lucky enough to have bowels that abhor retention. I seldom bake my loaves for very long and I empty my arse whenever I feel the pressure. As such, when I have a meal, whatever’s in my pipework will get expelled soon after to make room for it. I usually belch, then within 5 to 15 minutes or so I feel the tugging. So if I’m in a restaurant for example, when my companions are sipping coffee or liqueurs and contemplating cigars (not that they’re a regular occurrence since the smoking ban), I usually round off the dinner in the lavatory, crimping one off. After all, the last thing a chap needs when he’s on his way home, leaking port and brandy, is to be caught short. That would involve stopping to find a suitable public convenience, or if one cannot be found it means holding oneself, squeezing one’s buttocks together as if trying to crack a walnut, developing abdominal pain, walking as if one’s knee joints have been reversed, and ultimately, it affects the moisture level of the subsequent stool, which makes it less satisfying and more messy to pass (a million wiper, as you Septics call it).

I'm not sure how it happens, but I have tested the times when I poop with specific foods--generally corn or something I don't often eat--and I can and DO crap out the same meal generally half an hour to an hour after eating.

Of course, this depends on the type of meal. Things like jerky or peanuts usually pass through normally, but many foods literally seem to pass right through, leaving me constantly hungry and apparently nutrient-deprived.

Of course, the plus side is that I can eat as much as I want...have to really...just to maintain a constant body weight.

Yesterday morning I had an unusually large and satisfying b.m., so I did not expect to have another one that day. However, we had a late but huge lunch at our minister's house honoring his son's graduation, and I was eating more or less constantly from about 2:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon. We left within an hour after that, had a 40-minute drive home, and stopped for a brief shopping errand on the way. We were home before 5, and I promptly started farting, with some frequency and a lot of racket, but no smell. I was very tired, so I took a nap; up by a bit after 6, still farting. I went outside to do some yard work on a lovely day, and the exercise released some more gas, and obviously something else--I definitely had to poop. So in I went, sat, and let out a nice urgent foot-long turd and a shorter one. This was about 6:20, so it was not quite 3 hours after I had finished that very large lunch. A most excellent poop.

This evening we had another large meal at our minister's house; I had to poop once during the meal (between main course and dessert), and then again after we got home, maybe an hour later. Since I had already had 3 b.m.'s earlier in the day, that made five for today! All decently healthy, most pretty good sized. Most unusual.

I think the key word in the poll question was "Unusually".
After an ordinary-sized meal, I might shit an hour or so later, and it might be an ordinary amount. Now, heres the thing with me- if I have an unusually large meal, the brewing time seems the same, but the uncomfortable feeling of having over-eaten lasts for ages. Even after a good movement, the feeling of fullness lingers on. This feeling is higher in the guts than down around the bowel area.
As the horse in the Ren & Stimpy cartoon says- "No, sir, I don't like it".

Many years ago I had a stomach ulcer that would give a nasty hollow feeling before I ate and would sometimes hurt (ache) for a while after I ate also; most pronounced in spring and fall. As I remember it, if I had a bowel movement, I got temporary relief from the pain, but the ache would return. MMC, check for ulcer.

I may be an unusual person because I normally poop only once a day, early in the morning, and do so regardless of the size meals I consume. If I had an unusually large meal the day before I will have an unusually large poop but it will exit my body on schedule.

AC: By "big meal" I assume you mean unusually large, as in the question above. My thought is that an unusually large shipment down your gullet sends unusually fast peristaltic waves down your intestines, thus stimulating your bowels. I'd say, after a big meal, the walk is fine; but make sure you walk where a toilet is available quickly. Of course, there's always Depends . . . But I digress. Plan ahea

Last night we went out for Chinese: large meal, including brown rather than white rice. I had already pooped twice, so I was sort of surprised when I had to do it again--my third b.m. of the day, a hard, lumpy stool of 3 loud plunks, less than an hour after eating. I think the large meal propelled that one out before it would normally have come.

This morning came the direct result of the brown rice meal: as best I could measure it (toilet paper sheet 4" across), about a 20" curling and folding turd that I drove out in a single impulse, plus some softer stuff on top, including a length of green onion quite visible. A satisfying movement; great way to start the day.
