How do fats affect digestion?

ANSWER

Fats tend to stay in your system the longest, making them harder to digest. You may have even noticed a feeling of fullness or burning after a rich meal.

Limit fatty foods such as chips, burgers, and greasy foods. Instead, eat lean meat and fish. Also, try to grill your meals more often than you fry them.
