I'm wondering about other's experiences with various foods and digestion times. I noticed eggs don't last long, but if I have Sashimi * I am stuffed all day. I don't experience this with steak at the same quantity.

I am curious to other peoples experiences with food digestion times.

* When we have Sashimi, we go to town.

This is a puzzler. Fish is supposed to be fast digesting (30 minutes), and beef very slow (3-4 hours).

How much sashimi did you eat? The body can only digest protein at a certain rate, about 8-10 grams per hour, and fish is very high in protein.

Raw food is digested slower than cooked food. That may explain the sashimi effect you're experiencing.
