    The good news is that you don't need fancy foods or supplements.

    In principle, you could eat what you are eating now, just less of it and you would lose weight.

    But if you are eating a lot of highly processed foods, this might make it rather hard to stick to. So it is better to choose unprocessed and low calorie dense foods. Meat, eggs, salad vegetables, fibrous vegetables like broccoli etc. No need to visit hippy shops and pay through the nose. Even a bag of frozen mixed vegetables is better than choosing a donut.

    If you can get meat at least once a day then you won't need any supplements at all - doesn't have to be expensive stuff. You could make casseroles from chuck steak or make chilli or curry (don't choose creamy sauces - tomato based versions are better).

    Everything SP said above I will second.

    I dont know what "fancy foods" are, unless you're talking about fine dining. In which case thats the opposite of what you want since fine dining foods are typically very rich with butter/sauces and thus high in calories as well.

    What you need is primarily a diet of whole, minimally processed foods and to stay away from factory produced highly processed foods like boxed cereals, chips, cookies, pastries, soda (zero calorie is fine), etc.

    Supplements don't help you lose weight, so there's no issue there.

    You need more activity as well, walking, jogging, cycling, hiking, swimming, etc are all things you can do to help burn more calories and most of those do not require a gym.

    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    I can imagine how hard it is when it comes about self-love. Personally I don't like seeing my body but I have found an amazing experience when I saw my kids playing with their kids yoga mat which leaded me to do yoga with them. After I did yoga, I am starting accept my body and it makes me mindful when it comes about food as well.
