I think it's related to bowel transit time. I don't remember the actual term but I know it was something other than dumping, haha. I think it's just part of colitis, sometimes I would have to go to the bathroom before even finishing a meal! Salads are the worst, when I'm really flaring and I eat one, I'll go to the bathroom very soon after and already have lettuce in there.... Fun
Food stays in the stomach 2 - 4 hours....then it has to go through the small intestines and then the colon. Not a soon after you eat proposition to dump food from the stomach directly into the toilet. Impossible.
Fast transit time (for food eaten to be digested and out the chute) is about 6 hours - 8 hours. Normal is about 8 - 24 hours...etc Slow is up to 72 or more hours.
It all depends on where the problem lies in the digestive tract.
The mouth and anus aren't connected directly. What you see in the toilet being the same as what you're eating is what you probably ate yesterday.
