How quickly can one get diarrhea after eating?

My spouse says that if I have diarrhea, I should try to recall what I ate the day before.  I think one can get diarrhea the same day, within hours or even minutes after eating something that doesn't agree with me.  Thank you!

Hi And yes its all done to what we eat, and the way it affects our stomach, if what you eat was a very hot chilli or curry, this could go straight through you, if your stomach cant stand it, why other things may take longer.

Good Luck
