In brief: Weight loss is key

Any nutrition plan can be effective for weight loss if calories are reduced.
Some people do better with limiting carbs others by limiting fats. The trick is finding a plan that you can maintain for a lifetime. Healthy habits need to be learned and maintained to avoid regaining the weight you lose. Weight loss is the key to diabetes and PCOS prevention. Don't get discouraged! It takes time.
