Confused With Current Diet

Hi guys, I’m 20 this year weighing in 70kg w/ 16.6% bf. I was previously 86kg (abt 3 yrs ago) but dieted down to 65kg using a fruit diet method (b4 i read up on bodybuilding). I’ve been working out for half a year now, however, I can’t seem to get my BF any lower.

I also cant put on any significant muscle mass! Practically my Bf stays at the same level. I try to don’t eat processed carbs including white rice and eat only fruits n vege for carbs. I’m not sure if my calories are too low or too high. Can anyone give some advice?
