Not trying to be all doom and gloom here but go out and get yourself a meter. First of all, it will help you track what is what with the foods you eat. For example, I can eat potatoes, my father-in-law couldn't. Corn flakes are like candy to my blood sugar. I wouldn't know which foods did what without my meter.
You can buy a Prestige IQ meter with 300 test strips for about $100 online. That's about the cost of five Friday night pizzas. It could help you save your eyesight, kidneys and feet. Sometimes, at the drugstore a meter will have a rebate making it free if you buy a few boxes of test strips, but the companies that do that usually have the very expensive replacement test strips.
My point is this. Your doctor doesn't own your numbers, you do. How can you take responsibility for your food plan if you don't know how it's working? I'd get a meter. If your doctor objects, I'd find a new doctor. Just my 2¢.
