Is it possible to digest all your food at the same time?

It depend on the amount of food. If you simply swallow, lets say, a small strawberry, without chewing, and call that all your food, then yes, the entire strawberry would be digested at the same rate. However, if you were eating, lets say, a peice of chicken, and you were taking the time to chew and swallow each bite, then each of these swallows would be slightly off. For example, when you are chewing one peice, another might be in your esophagous, or in your stomach.

Now a whole school would be able to do so in minutes.
