Welcome to Health Care Magic family.

Having weight of 100 kg is above normal range and requires about 20-25 kg weight reduction.

To reduce weight keep in mind that there should be more calorie expenditure than calorie intake.

Means, to get reduction of weight, go for more calorie expenditure than calorie intake.
As you are not able to reduce weight despite doing regular exercise, it is due to not having negative calorie balance.

In first place, increase exercise. As you are young, please go for strenuous exercise like heavy running, jogging and push ups, where there will be more calorie expenditure. Do at least 30-40 minutes/day 6-7 days in week.

At the same time keep strict diet control, so that there is less calorie intake.

This will lead to negative calorie balance resulting in weight loss.

Avoid butter, ghee, cheese, pannier, sweets and puddings.

Avoid taking more tea, coffee, cold drinks which give extra calories, hurdling loosing of weight.

Avoid sedentary life style.

Rule out Thyroid hormone imbalance and Diabetes which can cause increasing of weight.

I hope, I answered your query to your satisfaction.

If you have further query, please ask. I will be happy to answer it.

Take care.
