I’ve never figured this one out – if I consume excess amount of calories but shit most of it out, has my body really consumed the amount of calories from the food I ate?
For example if I lose all of my self control and eat a large 1500 calorie pizza in one go and take a huge dump half hours later – did my body really consume 1500 calories? Or just a fraction of it?
Logically I’m leaning towards the second option but I’ve heard that humans only excrete the inedible parts of food. Also if it were true, “shit yourself thin” diets would probably be quite popular.
Advice much appreciated 😀
