Also, I don't know what kind of yogurt you ate, but your dinner, while large, still sounds relatively low in carbs. Depending on how much fat was in it, you might still go up later.
I considered fat factor at first but then discounted it thinking there couldn't be that much fat, but then again, there is no way to know the exact ingredients a restaurant uses.
Yes my dinner was low carb. Given I was starting the meal with a high level I went easy on the carbs.
At first I thought my dinner actually caused my glucose to go down, but I'll just assume it was timing/coincidence and blame it on the long period of time for my system to absorb the lunch carbs.
Thanks for the info.
