Transit Time

I found this diagram when I Googled "Standard American Diet." I like it, not so much for its message (many things affect colon transit time besides fiber) but that it shows how the human body requires several days to have its way with the food we eat.

If you want to check your transit time, eat beets! But seriously, people like to eat all sorts of supplements to help digestion, when a little fiber might work wonders.
