Once the glucose has reached your blood, the question changes to "how long will blood glucose stay high?". A sort of corollary to that question is how high was your blood glucose before you ate.
What I'm suggesting is that the instant breakfast may have had a lot more effect on your afternoon blood glucose than the Lean Cuisin meal. There are two ways I can think of to help you decide if that is true. One is to pay attention to labels. Do you know how many carbs were in the instant breakfast and the milk you added to it? Do you know how many carbs were in the Lean Cuisine meal?
The other way is to test both before and after a meal, to see how the food in just that one meal affects your blood sugar. All we know is that your started the day at 152 and added about 39g of carbs with the instant breakfast. Your blood glucose may have already been pretty high before your started lunch.

I can't figure out why my levels were high the day after I ate the wrong stuff. On most days it runs between 120 - 140 fasting and/or 2 hours after meals. My 'normal' fasting level is about 130.
If it was the ice cream, why was it only 120 two hours later. I just seem to have these unexplained highs that I can't link to the food I have eaten.

I must have done something right though because my A1c did drop from 6.7 to 6.2 in the first three months.

Go to YouTube look up Simply Raw: Reversing diabetes in 30 days. I did this for one week and my blood sugar dropped from 179 down to 106 in 3 days. This was an experiment on myself. I do weight lifting and cadio, but I have not been consistant. It's not the easiest diet because you have to give up dairy, alcohol, and nicotine. Choose life! :-)
