[IP] Sloooow digestion: YMMV or something else?

Hi all,

It's come to my attention that not everyone has to do a dual wave (combo) 
bolus for 2 meals of the day. I do a normal or super bolus for breakfast, 
then a 50/50 split for lunch and dinner (over 2 hours for lunch, 3 for 
dinner). I eat a normal to slightly higher amount of fat - mostly "good" fat 
like flax. So I don't think that it's the fat. This happened to me on shots, 
too, and I would go low at 1 hour, because I didn't have the option of the 
dual wave.

I'm not too active after dinner, but I am plenty active before and after 
lunch, so it's not that. And it's consistent - no spikes way later, 
generally, unless I eat more fat than usual and don't adjust accordingly.

Is speed of digestion a YMMV thing? Anyone else weird like me? I'm not 
worried, really, merely curious.
