Lipids can move dramatically in 30 days. Most particles circulate for only a couple of days.
Your body will take years to remodel though, and slight changes will continue for a long, long time.

Nah. nutin to worry about.
What you are doing is the most
important thing you can do, I so happy for you. I have noticed beans tend to show up more in a 2 hour postprandial while things like orange juice peak at 45 minutes.
If you add a bunch of fat to the meal (NOT RECOMMENDED!) then the peak will be lower but it won't come down as quickly. (AUC is about the same).
I am transitioning to a higher carb diet so I've been adding carbohydrate back into the menu. This morning I added (to my breakfast salad) 110 grams of black beans and I drank 100 grams of fresh squeezed orange juice. 1 hr pp=101 and 2 hr pp=105 - YAY! I'll double the orange juice tomorrow...
