Metabolic rates: The time it takes to metabolize junk food is the same as for other foods - most of the variation in times for digesting foods have to do with how quickly the food can be broken down, and how quickly the food moves from your stomach through your bowels.

I only go number 2 every 4 days or so. Does this allow my body to absorb more calories from the foods i eat?
No: But it does suggest that you need more fiber, fluid & physical activity to get your bowels moving a bit more frequently. With that said, as long as you're not straining to pass a bowel movement, then you're probably normal as stool frequency varies greatly. To be on the safe side, if you're also overweight, lethargic & intolerant of cold, consider asking your doc to check your thyroid function. ...Read more

If I take my Ritalin right after eating a meal (a very starchy one)will it help my body burn the calories faster or make less absorption of the carbs?

The effect on your metabolism is minor and really doesn't effect how you burn off or absorb any particular nutrient. If you decide to believe it does it may effect how you eat and then some weight change. ...Read more
