If you eat smaller portions of healthy foods, and more often, you will certainly see results. If you change your view on eating in general it will be easier, and something you can stick with after you reach your goal, making it more likely to keep the weight off.
The other problem with a diet program is that, once you've achieved your goal or you've fallen off the wagon, there's nothing stopping you from going right back to the habits that lead to the weight gain in the first place. Thus begins the yo-yo phenomenon.
