While exercise will improve your overall health and work on your weight, it by itself is not a BG reduction tool.

Not sure I agree with this, at least on a daily basis. If I eat a light supper, walk a little, read a little, go to bed, then my blood sugar will be OK in the morning. If I eat a light supper then do a couple of hours of fairly heavy labor, then go to bed, I will wake up trembling and confused at 3 or 4 am with a bs reading of 40-50. I've learned that, at least for me, I must have a snack of 200 or so calories before I go to bed if I've done heavy yard work.
