Thanks for posting your query.
Double chin develops due to generalised weight gain.
It can be controlled by having regular exercise of at least 30 minutes per day, avoiding fast & heavy food.
Take lots of seasonal fruits & salad XXXXXXX in vitamins & minerals.
Some people want to take medications to reduce weight but that is not an ideal way.
I hope you will follow all these points so that your weight can be maintained.
I will be available for your further queries.

Welcome back.
According to your height your ideal weight should be 72-73 kg.
Now according to your weight & height your BMI( Body mass index) is 26 that is in overweight category.
So reduce your weight by doing regular exercise & avoiding heavy & fast food.
I hope your query has been answered.
