Do make sure you actually eat enough calories though. Hardly anyone seems to know this, I didn't either but I try to let many know this now, but if you don't eat enough calories your body thinks your starving it and turns everything you eat into body fat and this weighs more than eating the extra calories does so it stops you from losing weight and sometimes puts weight on instead. I know it sounds weird to eat more to lose weight but it has worked for many. Good luck with your journey.
