Are you using an actual kitchen scale to measure your food? Just confirming.
You have been going a month?
How much have you lost?
For weight loss 100% is calorie deficit.
80% of emphasis for that deficit is diet.
The most effective forms of complementary exercise is resistance + cardio. They do different things.
For the cardio side its quite good to vary rower, bike, whatever try and keep variety. You either need to put in the time or focus a bit on intensity.
Its a balance between time put in or whether you wnat to take less time by doing higher intensity, but it can take longer to recover from.
The more importnat thing is consistence and that means a consistent deficit.
Weights help you to retain muscle. You want to keep all your muscle.
Cardio help your cardio caculat system Herat and lungs. So breathing, endurance and overall welbeing. It burns calories, But you have to do an awful lot of exercise to burn a significnat amount of calories. Your 5k run might burn 400-500 cals and thats before you eat anything back.

No you should still lift, lifting helps you retain muscle in a caloric deficit, if you diet without lifting you will just end up as a smaller skinnyfat version of yourself.
