ask your doctor about metformin (see if you are insulin resistant). portion control and drinking water. limit the sugar and salt intake.

I don't know if you are on metformin or not.. but with pcos it is best to do a low carb diet. Although I don't have pcos, I am insulin resistant (one of the things that causes pcos) and I take metformin. I stick to a low carb diet of 45 grams of carbs for 3 meals and 15 grams of carbs per snack (3 of those per day). I eat every 3-4 hours alternating meal/snack.

At a restaurant split your meal and eat only half meal and take the rest home if the quality is more

My mom has PCOS and she's lost a lot of weight here lately. She isn't on a specific diet really, she's just eating way smaller portions and doing about an hour or more of exercising a day (she likes to dance for exercise). And she doesn't eat any junk food or anything sweet. I'm doing the same thing as her and it's really helped me out, I've lost almost 30 pounds. So I would just try that if I were you, once you start eating a lot less you eventually get used to it. Just don't get discouraged fast, because there are times when it really just sucks and you can't lose anything. Edit:@Your ex-boyfriend: Shut up. I mean, really.
