Speed of digestion?

i've been 'experimenting' with energy gels--
unfortunately, for me, it's a lot like an
alcoholic 'experimenting' with bourbon flavors...

what i'm wondering is how often a person
really needs to consume certain sugars while
riding.

i've read that some 'complex carbohydrates' take
up to 1.5-3 hours to digest, but in practice, it seems
like in about half an hour and i'm 'needing' another??

how can this be? What i'm afraid of is overeating
more than i need, since i'm also tying to burn fat.
