Your BMI is 21 kg/m2 which comes under normal category so keep doing exercise to maintain this weight.

Also include more fiber like whole pulses, grains, more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drink 10-12 glasses of water in a day. Avoid carbonated beverages and drinks, all type of junk and fried food items , processed and frozen food items.

Hope it will help .
