In brief: Sorry, but no...

Vitamin d will not help weight loss.
Dark skin = ? African ancestry = genetic tendency to be heavier = more "efficient" & needing less calories. Best way to lose weight = permanently eat a little less, exercise a little more, make good food choices (read food labels). Eat high protein foods first, eat slowly (1 min between bites), & keep a "food journal"; try www.Myfitnesspal.Com. Good luck!
