    ALL diets with the goal of weight loss are accomplished via calorie deficit.

    A "calorie deficit" simply means consuming fewer calories than your body uses (flip side, a "calorie surplus" would be the opposite, eating more calories than you burn, thus gaining weight).

    The deficit can be created by decreasing input (eg, consuming fewer calories), increasing output (eg, upping your physical activity), or some combination of the two.

    Have a look at the Maintaining Weight and Success Story forums if you are looking for inspiration.

    Dieting styles to achieve a sustainable calorie deficit are hugely variable but for weight loss it's the calorie deficit that works, the stye of eating just makes the process easier or harder on a personal basis.

    Anyone who lost weight did so by the calorie deficit diet - which is any way of eating which creates a calorie deficit.

    Lots of recomendations - read through the stickied threads to find them.
