Ate cooked butternut squash & cooked carrots. 4.5 hrs later had bowel movement & saw it in my stool. Does it make sense that it passed thru so quickly?
Bowel transit time:
Normally takes ~ 2.5 -5 hours in the stomach and 2.5-5 in the intestines, then 12 + in the colon. But if you have only a diet of vegetables and drink water/coffee which is a cathartic, it is possible to get more rapid transit time, as by 4-5 hours there is food in colon. Alternatively could be from yesterday.
