Digestion times.....

Starch is digested quickly-usually within 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Protein takes a bit longer-anywhere from 1½ to 6 hours to digest
Fat takes much longer. Only about 10 grams of fat can be processed by the digestive tract per hour, so high fat foods or meals can take many hours to digest.
