Sugar is your worst enemy and it is in everything. Try removing sugar and processed food from your diet. Eliminate grains, high-sugar fruits like banana, watermelon and mango and all processed sugar and see how you feel.
The easiest way to lose excess fat is to eat lower calorie foods that are high in nutrients. When you eat foods that are high in nutrients/fibers, then your hunger tends to decrease, as well as your cravings for "bad foods"
Fat does not make us fat. Ditch the low-fat options which are loaded with sugar to replace fat. Fat makes us full and provides satiety which helps manage cravings. Try adding some good quality fat to every meal, just don’t over do it- for example a good serving size is 1/2-1 avocado, 10-12 nuts or 1 Tbsp of coconut or olive oil.
Raw greens and vegetables have the fewest calories per bite of any food. Fruits are the second lowest, and they give satiation because they raise blood sugar and reduce appetite.
Weight gain can be a response to a food you are sensitive to. It is worth having a food sensitivity test to check if something healthy could be holding your body back.
Eating high-water content foods will also help you loose weight, because these foods are lower in calories and high in energy density. By including plenty of fruits and vegetables and whole grains in your diet, you can feel full on fewer calories.
If you are trying to lose weight and are finding it just wont shift it is worth easing your adrenals (stress hormones) especially if the weight is centred around your middle. Once you deal with underlying issues weight loss happens much quicker and actually stays off.
