Losing weight: Vitamins would be the last thing to worry about when changing your diet and exercise and lifestyle to lose weight. In fact i know of no good physician that would even recommend vitamins as weight loss tools.

Weight loss: Recommend that calories burned exceed calories in. Drinking at least 8 8 ounce glasses per day is important for both hydration and weight control. Try to get in whole foods (fiber) as well as 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Physical activity is essential. At least 8 hours of sleep per night helps. Aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity at least 5 days per week
