Guys, I need help
After I was done reading the sticky a few months ago , I decided it's time to say goodbye to my fat body and change my life.
The first thing I did was go to a nutritionist whom ordered me a blood test, the tests and physical discovered that I have fatty tissue in a chamber of my heart and that I have extrasystolic arrhythmia,during the treadmill test, they quickly stopped me when I started running slowly and the doctors started panicking (my heart beats are irregular, and some beats are more powerfull or less powerfull, which leads to my body and brain being oxygen starved from time to time,It's not a fatal condition, it may make me faint , worst case scenario, the fat in my heart can cause heart attack from what I understand)
Being greatly discouraged by this, since my father and grandfather died of heart diseases, I wavered for a while between staying a fat fuck or taking a risk and getting a "man's body" which I deserve.
After a month, during which I cut soda and fried food from my diet, I decided to finally start weightlifting, cardio and the Dukan diet.
I quit the Dukan diet after 1 month , because I was simply starving everyday and I literally got sick of chicken.
The gym part is going good, for the past 2 months I have been going 5 days a week and have been adding more weights as intended.I also have been doing 30 minutes of cardio a day, either running or walking at high incline at a brisk pace.
But here's where I need your help:
I have dropped , from 91 kgs to 86 kgs in the first month, then I have stopped at 86 kgs.I am sure this is because I stopped the diet.The other problem is that I am not a native english speaking guy, and I do not know the weightlifting terminology used in the guides, so I only had to go by hear-say and listening to the gym employees which don't really seem too hyped to help me out.

Lardass here, but working on it. Quick run down before my question.
I used to weigh 14ST/88KG two and a half year's ago. Through various weak reasons I ballooned to weigh 23ST/146KG and im finally stopping being a pussy bitch and doing something about it.
I've started riding 5 miles to my new job (A much more active one than the one I did sitting down) and i've cut down my calorie intake from the 4000-6000 calories I was eating to 2000 or under depending on meals.
After a month of this im down to 21ST/133KG so thats nearly 2ST/12KG in a month, and it makes sense when you work out the calories etc. I also haven't been hungry because im eating filling foods.
I only find that at times, I struggle mentally and want that comfort of food because I get down or whatever negative emotion I feel (We're human, it happens. Im not depressed) My question is what can I do to combat that feeling 'Urgh ffs give me chocolate?"
Any tips for a fat guy on his way to recovery?
Pic related, the kind of body i'd like to have in about 3 years.

5"11', 171lbs here, around 15% bf (not me in pic)
I am cutting right now and doing around 3x5 reps to maintain strength, but I would soon like to start bulking and I was wondering if the routine below would be good for that. If not, what could I change? I thought of ABCxABCx but my daily schedule is quite busy, is there another routine I could be doing instead of this one (something like ABxABxABx push/pull)? Goal is aesthetics
Incline DB Press 3x5
DB Flies 3x5
Tricep Rope Extensions 3x6-7
Some abs work, 3x12 sets
Lat Pulldowns Wide Grip 3x5
Rowing, narrow grip 3x5
Lat Pulldowns Narrow Grip 3x5
Dumbbell Curls 3x6-7
DB Shoulderpress 3x5
Lateral Raises 3x7
Front Raises 3x7
Reverse Flies 3x6-7
Leg Press 3x5
Leg Extensions 3x5
I neglected my leg workout and didn't do squats because I was worried about my form. But I will add them asap
Abs work, 3x12
