Diets never work, the reason for this being the simple fact that every person's weight is determined by a "settling point". Your metabolic rate changes when there is a lack of food beyond a certain weight, increasing your hunger while simultaneously decreasing your metabolism in order to maximize caloric intake. Diets merely decrease the amount of food you take in the short run of things.
Defined as a "settling" point for a reason, your metabolism will eventually adjust to a new body weight under prolonged duration at said body weight, but this usually requires an extended period of time at a newly maintained body weight. Until that point, it's very easy to put weight back on because of your decreased metabolic rate and increased hunger, even more so if you're not overweight to begin with.
Thusly, the easiest way to lose weight isn't to decrease the amount of food that your body takes in but rather increase the rate at which your body utilizes the energy. A simple workout regime increases your metabolism while keeping you in perfect physical health.
Having actually been significantly overweight as a child and losing 60lbs in the course of two years (and keeping it off, despite a 10 lb relapse back in 2009) without the use of a diet, I can verify that lifestyle changes are more successful than short-term changes in eating trends.
However, because you're at such a young age, any sort of diet is HIGHLY discouraged simply because you're not fully grown yet and the nutrients in your daily food consumption are very important to your biological development.

Thank you, AP Psych, for teaching me all this.

Haha. Thank you. :)
You should be fine going to the gym even twice a week. Just remember not to overwork yourself.
