Have you heard of the HCG diet?
It's a (doctor prescribed) hormone, most people take it under the tongue, that allows you to eat only 500 calories a day, and causes your body to use the fat as energy instead of food. The cycle is like 30 days, first two days you eat whatever you want, then by day three your hunger is gone.
I've actually seen a few people have success with this. I've not tried it myself, and can't recommend it confidently, but...maybe worth looking into?
It's mostly clinics with a doctor on staff, they write the prescription and it runs like 30 days at a time. Seems like sketchy too me, but, maybe its not - I've seen a few people drop weight on it.
Maybe worth researching.

Losing weight is easy really.
All you have to understand is calories in and calories out. Everything else is completely and totally a waste of your time.
My best advice is to get an Exerspy from a local gym. It is a small device you wear on your upper arm that tracks your calories burned for an entire day. Through a website you also plot out exactly what you eat every single day. This sounds tedious but honestly I spend less than 5 minutes a day doing it if that.
At the end of the day you know exactly what you've burned vs. what you take in.
If its a deficit you will lose weight. If it isn't you won't.
I'm 6'5 300 and struggled with my weight for forever but I've lost 2% of my body fat in 2 weeks simply because now I know EXACTLY what I'm working with.
