    Food spends from 30 minutes to 2 hours in the stomach, and between 2 and 6 hours in small intestine. And up to 72 hours in the large intestine. Adding up to 75 to 80 hours.

    It takes approximately 6-8 hours for swallowed food to go through your stomach and small intestine. From there, it enters the large intestine, or colon, where water and nutrients are absorbed. The remainder of the food generally spends about 24 hours in the large intestine before it is excreted. Total digestion time is usually between 24-72 depending on the individual, but it can sometimes take several days before the food is completely eliminated from the body.
