Is a plant based diet or a vegetarian diet best for someone who has type 2 diabetes or prediabetes?

Im wanting to lse weight and i need to how to get stared. What would be the best way to  do it being that im prediabetic on over weight?

Prediabetic: I have never been comfortable with that term. Either you have diabetes or you don't. If you are overweight you need to go on a diet. The internet is full of information.
