If you can't cure it with squats and fish oil, you can't cure it with anything.
Tracking calories is the way to go. Use one of those crappy calculators online to find out your TDEE (how much you burn daily = BMR + thermic effect of food + calories burned from exercise + calories burned from doing things like walking, cooking, washing), eat 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight, 0.5g of fat per pound of bodyweight, fill the gap with carbs, eat a minimum of 20g of fiber a day, eat your fruits and veggies to get your micronutrients and then just monitor your weight.
As you monitor your weight see if you gain weight or lose weight and see the rate at which this is happening. If you gain weight, reduce calories by 500, if you maintain reduce by 200-300, if you lose too much increase by 100-150 and if you lose 1-2 pounds per week it's perfect, stay where you are!
At the same time the first 2 to 4 weeks are the most confusing weeks. You will probably lose a lot of weight at the beginning = water weight then it may stop then your body will "notice" that you're in fat burning mode and will start to lose the fat.
It's all science and trial and error at the same time.
And don't forget to squat!
Hope this helps!
P.S. These are my opinions.
