Dilute juice, +fiber: Drinking juice beverages (with or without fiber) can help with weight loss only if they don't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day. For example, mixing water with powdered fiber to make a drink will cause a person to feel fuller and have less appetite (can be helpful). However, mixing fiber with undiluted juice will give a person lots of sugar calories along with fiber (won't help!).

None: Make sure you exercise at least 30 minutes a day, don't skip meals, avoid soda, juice, dairy, alcohol and fried foods. Eat a healthy well balanced diet! also water, organic vegetable broth, green leafy vegetables, natural pickles, apples are great to fill you up so you dont feel hungry and they are very low in calories.

Track calories: The best way to stay focused and on track is to count and record your daily caloric intake. There are many phone apps and computer programs that will help you do this (ex, choosemyplate.Gov). You should find out the healthy caloric intake for your current and desired bmi and then make an effort to use your calories wisely (mostly fruits and vegetables, reduce fats, sugars, junk).

No: But it will lighten your wallet. To lose weight you need to achieve negative caloric balance, i.e., burn more calories than you take in. Reduce your intake, and exercise (easier said than done).

Nutrition & Support: A healthy weight loss program will provide balanced nutrition along with support to keep you on program. You need to learn lifestyle changes that promote a healthy weight for a life time. The right program will help you gain health, not just lose weight. Eating small meals 6 times a day, low in fat, sugar and white starches, gradual exercise and plenty of water are key components.

Liquid plus support: A short term liquid meal-replacement diet, like medifast is a good way to "kickstart" your weight loss. It is critical that you include support with education about proper eating long-term. It is important to include some regular exercise. The support you get in programs like weight watchers is also helpful. Your physician can check on medical issues that might be holding you back.
