I love Dave Tate's basic weight loss plan, as outline here:
21 Days to Effortless Fat Loss
The best part, in my opinion, is the simplicity and the refusal to answer questions until people have done the first part. If you can't step up for 21 days and do the simple things, why worry about the details?
The video at the bottom is horrifyingly accurate. That's really the reaction you often get when you tell people how to lose weight - an immediate argument and counters to what worked. You get something like this:
Other Person: "You're so trim. What's a good way for me to lose some weight?"
Peter: "Try this one tip to start: Don't drink your calories, go for no-calorie drinks instead."
Other Person: "But aren't juices healthy? I'll just cut out some fatty foods and eat less breakfast."
Peter: " . . . "
