Serious Q: When you eat and get diarrhea...

how many of the calories do you add to your diary? I mean, if you ate the Waffle House Special and it passd through you in 15 minutes, there's no way you absorbed all of the calories. Furthermore, if you fight it and hold it in, are any calories absorbed through your colon? Is there possibly an equation one can use? Like TotalCalories x (time digested in minutes / (4x60) ) = NetCalories ?

    All of them. Doesn't matter how they came out.....or when.
  • Don't eat the Waffle House Special.

    Serious? Log the calories. I wouldn't count 'holding in ****' as a valid exercise.....

  • no matter what you eat it takes hours to go through your system, you're just passing stool that is foods youve eaten previously, hope this helps!

    Interesting question I have no idea. But waffle house is definatly note the place to eat if you are trying to lose weight. Not that I don't love Waffle House. I am originally form Atlanta. I guess I can only suggest trying to google it.

    I would be more concerned with the symptom and less concerned about the calorie count. Could be something like a response to dairy allergies causing stomach distress.
  • I went through a phase of getting diarrhea from junk foods. I just didn't log the day and spent the next day eating crackers, plain chicken and drinking sports drinks

    I've seriously wondered this same thing. I DO record it, but I've considered not doing so. This doesn't happen to me like it used to though. I guess eating healthier and getting enough fiber has made a difference.

    Count the food anyway, but don't count whatever water you drank toward your eight glasses. So in conclusion, drink more water today and avoid Waffle House from now on!

    When you eat, it is digested in your stomach before it passes through approx. 25 feet of intestines. There is no way something you ate will pass through your body in 15 min. You're disposing of food that you ate previously, not the food you just ate 15 min ago.

    but why add calories if my body didn't asborb them? It's like fiber, it has calories, but since your body doesn't absorb it they put 0 cals on the label.

    ...and if you have to make a run for the loo, don't forget to log the sprint in your exercise diary.

    You may be a personal trainer, but apparently you don't train colons. If I eat Chinese Buffet and 15minutes later I see peking duck in the toilet, it obviously passed through.
