Takes more than that: Best bet is nutritional weight loss diet with aerobic exercise. No vitamins will help you loose weight however while loosing a good once a day vitamin will help keep your diet balanced, better yet get a diet program that is highly nutritios and not just crash (and burn) and you shouldnt need one.

None, really.: Attaining ideal weight requires a healthy approach to everything - food, exercise, mental state; a vitamin or an herb won't do any more than a band-aid.
