See bloodsugar101.com for details on how to use test strips efficiently. You need to do this at home on your own, The fasting test at the doctor's office won't give you the info you need.
Another option is to look into the Failsafe diet, but using the meter could help you figure out the problematic foods more quickly.

However, as was mentioned, blood sugar changes are also a possibility.
Another thing I know can cause drowsiness/fatigue after eating is poor digestion. There may be something in your diet which doesn't agree with you, or that you are having trouble digesting. You may benefit from a digestive enzyme supplement too.

Run to Walmart after you eat and test your blood pressure. Certain foods made it worse. - Dairy, carbs, and starchy food did me in. I'm not real familiar with the South Beach Diet, but doesn't it allow complex carbs like brown rice and beans? Both are high in starch - very hard to digest for some of us with celiac. It all kinda depends on how much damage has been done to the microvilli and enzyme production.
Hope this helps you figure out what's happening and you find an answer. You will get better!

Following the SCD diet after gluten free didn't solve symptoms. Much better and getting back my life!

I'm on the SCD now (and a lot of vitamin supplements), which seems to have helped deal with the rest of my fatigue. But even before then, it was evident to me that frequent light meals consisting of vegetables with a little fish/meat/complex starches made me much less tired than any major meals. And sugar has in fact been a killer for me all my life, as is of course all gluten products
If you're building up a lot of toxins that could also be an explanation.
Hope you figure out what it is.

I am also going to look into the blood sugar. I eat a TON of sweets and carbs...so that definitly might be a suspect!
