Brief Answer:
diet and exercise

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the query

Two most common ways are
1) Stop gaining more
2) Start reducing more

For this you have to follow 3 ways,
1. Diet - control calories, fats, fries, and oily foods.
Choose your diet wisely- reduced the amount of fat and carbohydrate in your
diet. Good amount of breakfast, more in protein and fiber content; moderate
amount of lunch and light dinner. Total calorie intake should be less than the
required
small frequent meals are ideal than 3 big meals.
select the right portion of cereal ,avoid bakery products processed foods,
sweets , carbonated drinks .Add lots of vegetables in your meals with 2
servings of fruits per Day.
2. Exercise -Practice, yoga, exercises, morning walk,and do any work in front of
you what ever it is. I recommend getting at least 30 minutes of moderately
intense exercise every day, and even more exercise for further health
benefits.Going on doing some thing.This will keep you fit and relaxed
3. Sleep- sleep for minimum time, practice late to bed and early to rise and avoid
day time sleep, even for a while.
4. Intake sufficient amount of water
5. Avoid following crash diet, and taking any slim powder and tablets.Because it causes side effects including reflex weight gain once you stopped taking it and it is not good for health
It will be a hard work but you should be determined to reduce your weight

Take care

I have already requested for a diet chart. My height is 165cms and weight is 90.
Why did you say to sleep less? Others say to sleep more if you want to reduce weight!

Brief Answer:
Minimal sleep means at least 7-8 hrs daily

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks again for writing back.
Recent studies have suggested an association between sleep duration and weight gain. Sleeping less than five hours or more than nine hours a night appears to increase the likelihood of weight gain.
One explanation might be that sleep duration affects hormones regulating hunger ghrelin and leptin which stimulates the appetite, leads to increase in intake of food and causes weight gain.
So you have to sleep 7-8 hrs daily not less than this nor more than that.
More than all these workout is very important to lose weight.
I will be sending you the diet chart shortly

Take care
Thank you
