Diet and physical exercise to lose weight are general recommendations in cases of PCOS where, additionally, the woman is overweight. If you are already on your weight, you do not need to start a weight loss diet plan. In fact, losing weight can even worsen the situation.
I have PCOS but my body mass index is normal, should I lose weight to improve my insulin levels?
