I'm on the same journey and the thing that seems to work the best (so far!) is really eliminating the white 'stuff' - pasta/bread/rice/potatoes/sugar/fructose.

I'm trying to get most of my fats from mono (avocado/olives/olive oil) or poly unsaturates
I'm getting most of my protein from fish, nuts (almonds/walnuts), seeds, eggs or cheese
I'm getting most of my deliberate carbs from broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, "light" whole wheat bread

I'm drinking green tea instead of coffee or black tea

I'm limiting fruits to 1-2 servings a day - raspberries, blackberries or strawberries

I'm also drinking 2 tsp of lemon or lime juice in a 16 oz glass of water with each meal and at bedtime.

I'm also making sure I get at leat 25mg of fiber each day and supplementally, I'm taking Omega 3 (fish oil) capsuls and a multi-vitamin each day.

This is my 'starting' point.. I'll be making more changes as time goes on!

Ok, so I have been testing all over the place--140s in the morning, 170-185 after breakfast, 166 after lunch, and 150s in the evening. Today, I did my test 2 hrs after lunch and it was 120!! This was DEFINATELY the lowest it's ever been. I had a pasta dish for lunch and was not overly hungry then or now. I was just wondering how to get it down to 120s or below on a consistant basis. Also, which fruits are safe for diabetics to eat? I noticed that strawberries (I only eat 4 or 5 at a time) are very low in carbs--is that the type of thing I am looking for? Sorry--very confused!!
