In brief: It depends

Most people are able to lose weight with any kind of diet as long as they eat fewer calories than normal.
Maintaining the weight loss is the really hard part. So if you're going to use a weight management clinic look for a program that helps you keep the weight off once you've lost it. It's very easy to go back to the way you used to eat and you'll need to make permanent changes in your diet.
