In brief: Breakfast

The important thing is not to skip breakfast.
Low glycemic diet is important. Omega 3 rather than omega 6, trans fats and saturated fats are important. Fruit, veggies and protein should be an important part of any meal. Also, a morning and afternoon snack with a bit less less food at your meals, ie spread the calories around can also help.

In brief: Low glycemic food

Breakfast that includes a balance of high fiber carb, some fat and protein is ideal.
There is good quality cereals that have high fiber content that can minimize rapid glucose rise. A fruit serving such as small bannana, handful of rasberries or straberries with slice of low fat cheese is good. Few pieces of almond or pecan on the cereal with make it the perfect breakfast !

In brief: Diet and exercise

Diets for pcos are controversial some people would recommend low carbs while others will say caloric restriction, most of the studies about dieting in pcos will have similar results, so i will recommend a healthy diet and exercise.
