Insulin response from brie?

The best thing about eating this way is my stable blood sugar. I'd been humming along, staying stable, eating the same thing for about 10 days. Then Tuesday I had a blood sugar reaction. It came out of nowhere, it seemed. The two things I had done differently: I didn't eat my 1/2 cup of sour cream because I'm trying to decrease calories. (However, I did eat 1/2 cup HWC, CO, butter, salad dressing, over the course of the day. Definitely not a low-fat day, though lower than my previous days). And I added 1 oz of triple cream brie, which is a food I haven't had very often but seemed to fit the macros here.

I did work the brie into my plan, staying in my protein and carb allowances. Any guesses which change caused my problem? I remember Unna saying there were only very specific cheese she could have, but I don't remember which ones. I'm just starting to wonder if I'm more sensitive to cheese than I realized.

I appreciate any thoughts and experiences you all have had!

My guess would be HWC. Milk is said to be insulinogenic and I don't think that is solely because of the lactose in it.

insulin response is based on a lot of things besides what you eat. for example, when you start getting sick, your blood sugar tends to rise. I would never assume it was anything in particular you ate unless the pattern repeated at least three times.
Often I don't come back to read threads where I've posted. If you want me to see something, please send me a private message. Thanks!
