Knowledge: This is a life long issue. Learn about your diets calories. Start if you have not all ready a weekly fun exercise routine.
There is no magic here. Lots of fokes selling whatever. Study your diet first, adjust it according to what you find doable.
Physics: you have to burn more calories than you consume... To lose wt.

Depends: The answer to your question often is determined by your activities, current weight, height, and body type. I would possibly consult a personal trainer or a nutritionist who can direction and advise you. Need to keep a diary daily.
