Growth at 14

Hi I am a 14 year old who is 5 feet 8 inches. My dad is 6 foot 3 and my mum is 5 foot 4. If I sleep 8+ hrs and eat good nutrition is there a good chance I will grow. The only thing is I am obese for my age so I am trying to go on a calorie maintenance of -300-500 calories.As long as I eat well protein veg etc is there still a good chance I’ll grow.

Mate you're 14. I'm assuming you're a guy - in which case you've got another couple of years before you stop growing. 5'8 is a fairly respectable height anyway - there are plenty of guys ik your height who have no trouble getting girls
I’d be more concerned about the daily calories than the height tbh.
