My numbers are always highest after lunch and dinner. Quick solution? I exercise after each meal and before I test. Lately, my numbers have been below 100 for the after lunch and dinner testing!! And that's after one hour!!
Awesome. And that's eating 40-60 carbs per meal.
Just thought I'd share that awesome result with you guys. It really really really helps.
UPDATE: Well, it turns out when my numbers are that low, my ketones shoot up. Crap. I need to find a balance. My ketones were the highest they've ever been this morning (40/Moderate).

Yeah exercise, even just a little walking drastically reduced my numbers during my last pregnancy. Unfortunately I honestly don't have a way to exercise during the day with my job but I'm trying to figure out a way because it really does make a huge difference.
My nutritionist put it this way... when you eat your body does make insulin but the muscles will not let it in. She said "insulin knocks but the muscles won't open the door!" So when you excercise it makes the muscles open up and let the insulin in, thus lowering your blood sugar levels. That helped it make sense to me
I just had to add these numbers: I haven't gone over 100 once today, and for dinner I had tuna noodle casserole, bread and butter, and an orange. Altogether, over 80 grams of carbs. Previously, my glucose numbers would be over 175 from that. Tonight? No joke: 94.
