The only diet that will work is the one you can live on the rest of your life. Changing behaviors and increasing exercise are the two components to successful weight loss. I am not a fan of the liquid diets for several reasons. One is there is too much chemicals in those drinks and two it is so much easier to regain the weight after you introduce food again.
Weight Watchers is about the most commonsense diet and life plan out there. It involves eating real food and eating anything you want in moderation. Nevertheless if you don't feel it works for you then try eating healthier foods with smaller portions. Incorporate a minimum of 30 minutes a day of exercise and vary it between cardio and strength training.
