In brief: First...

You should be high wiasted and carry weight on the middle for optimal results.
Initially keep carb intake below 40g per day. You should become ketogenic. You will notice once weight loss occurs, your lipids will improve almost immediately! it is not a diet: it is a lifestyle! it prevents metabolic syndrome or corrects it, if strictly adhered to.
