Healthy weight loss: The absolute best way to lose weight is and always will be lifestyle choices, diet and exercise. You should: 1) track what you eat, try to calculate how many calories you eat per day and slowly try to decrease that number 2) start a manageable, consistent workout regiment (working out 30 -45 min/day for 4 days) 3) make sure you are managing your stress 4) plenty of sleep - 7 to 8 hours.

Any of them: All weight loss diets will work due to calorie and carbohydrate reduction. The problem with sustained weight loss is you need to have adequate vitamin/mineral supplementation, exercise, acid free intake (no sodas and other things). 2 quarts daily of high quality water. Some people need to have their metabolism checked and may need special help to speed it up.

None: There is no fast weight loss since you have to burn off 3500 calories that you don't eat in order to lose one pound. A good diet is one you can follow the rest of your life. Eat healthy, avoid fatty junk food, eat three meals a day without snacks, restrict portion size, eat a balanced diet, exercise. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. Learn to eat right, not diet.

Lifestyle: Study after study shows that short-term diets are not effective in maintaining weight loss. What you need is lifestyle changes and eat in a healthy way from now on. Fewer carbohydrates and fats along with increased reliance on vegetables will be very helpful. Activity is also important so a regular exercise program is recommended. Make healthy lifestyle changes and avoid the yo-yo dieting.

DASH: Weight loss by diet is mostly related to calorie balance, i.e. Intake vs. Consumption. To lose weight, intake has to be less than consumption. Dash (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) diet with lower calorie levels could lead to weight loss, especially if done with increased physical activity.
