I’m so confused!

So I’ve been all over the place with my diet but really trying hard to find not only something “that works” to help me drop a significant amount of weight but something that will be healthy and not leave me with any bad health side effects.
About 5 years ago after my youngest child started school, I joined a gym and started a 500 calorie (per day) diet. Needless to say, I dropped weight pretty quickly (50lbs in about 1 1/2 months) but, it didn’t stay off. Shortly after dropping the weight I returned to work. Long hours and too many fast food lunches and picking up dinner on the way home instead of cooking on the lighter side... I gained it all back... plus 30 :( TERRIBLE I know. Ive spent the past 6 months trying to get my health in check and lose the weight more gradually trying portion control and keto. But, true to my inconsistent self, it has been a bit of a roller coaster. Down 20 up 10 down 5... you get the point. And while I haven’t been diagnosed by a Dr., yesterday I tested by blood and my sugar was 287, I’m pretty sure that means I’m diabetic. Today it read 245. I’m going to try to get this down as low as possible cutting all sugars and seeing what results I get in a week, hopefully it’s nothing permanent. I’m having a hard time figuring out what to eat though. Lean protein and veggies have been my go to but I’m always hungry! I know keto is a high fat diet but I worry about the effects it might have on my heart. Isn’t it pretty much just the Atkins? And didn’t the founder of Atkins have a heart attack? I’m gonna have to research that again. And what about the paleo? Is that a good one? And is Herbalife really just a scam? Seems like a lot of people get great results using Herbalife. I even tried convincing myself that everything is okay in moderation, but’s hi am I kidding? I’m more of an “all or nothing” kinda gal. Ugh! I’m so confused! Okay, okay... one day at a time.
