is it true that the higher your diet is in fibre the less protien your body will absorb?

thanks for answering

someone told me that protien was absorbed in the small intestine. so by eating more fibre your body doesn't get enough time to absorb all of the protien, as the fibre limits the time protien spends in the small intestine.

personally my diet is pretty high in fibre so this lead me to be a bit concerned

i've learned that there is alot of myth out there mixed in with the facts so sometimes its hard to desern who's blowing wind up your but and whos not. i guess u gotta take everything with a grain of salt.

thanks again
