How do you FEEL?: You don't digest all the stuff that you eat. Some of it's not digestable. And transit times vary for no reason. Why are you even looking, Steve? If you feel well, are maintaining your musculature, and can keep up in the sports for which you train, you owe it to yourself and others to stop focusing on this stuff. Seek a relationship with a patient physician in real life, and think positive.
