Dear I think you already what are, your problem areas.Please avoid the food that you are taking written above.Take more of fruits and vegetables,occasionally relaxation is fine but for daily use you should avoid things which are rich in fats,like parathas,sweet,ready made snacks etc.Regular physical activity minimum 30 minutes in a day for six days in a week is must,start gradually and reach this level.bye take care.
