I have lost a fair bit of weight without having to go on a strict diet. I think it really is about portion control. My rule is to eat small portions but many meals and not to stuff yourself so that you feel sluggish and horrible that you don't feel like moving out of your chair.
Having a healthy diet enriched with protein and minerals, not ignoring carbs, eating big breakfasts, snacking on veggies, yoghurt and nuts throughout the day and eating dinners by 10pm and undertaking regular exercise are key to weight loss. I speak from personal experience.
Firstly, before engaging in a "plan of attack" so to speak, you need to be clear on the reasons as to why you want to lose weight in the first place. Getting married? Work requirements? Self esteem? Summer/bikini bod?

Then set some smart goals. Be specific. Be clear on how many kilos you want to lose, and ask yourself why you want to lose those kilos, and go from there.
Portion Control is probably the main thing. Loads of information on the Internet about Portion Control.
I did without B/Fast for 11 months....never seeing any difference!
Then I started this week to have a slice of wholemeal bread in the morning, and a drink.
Now the weight is coming off ....and! it is True, B/fast starts up the body to burn the calories during the day!
I feel wonderful..... next week more will have come off.
Have a light lunch....and a light dinner, DO NOT eat after 6 pm.

Exercise regularly, watch your portion control, don't skip meals and don't eat too much fast food. It's all pretty straightforward really, though easier said than done. Don't crash diet, it's really bad for you.
Keep it simple and sustainable.
Have attainable goals and don't cut out any food groups.
Portion or calorie controlled with regular exercise is enjoyable than stressful and contributes to a healthy lifestyle change.
Most importantly you need to be ready for this change.
