Correct for the protein conversion to glucose. About 10% of fat converts to 
glucose, so fat effects on glucose will be minimal. The issue is that fat 
binds up the glucose and slows down glucose absorption, which will eventually 
be absorbed into the blood, about 3 to 6 hours later, depending on how much 
fat and how much protein is in the meal.
