Yes, it does. Obesity is commonly associated with PCOS.
As for a diet for losing weight, I suggest reading the book Food Rules
by Michael Pollan. I found it very helpful and it's an easy read. It doesn't outline any specific DIET, per se, but shows you how to make eating a healthy activity by outlining how much you should be eating, as well as how to make decisions on what to eat and what not to eat.
