Naturopathy & Yoga Specialist Dr. Sneha's  Response
Hello Suresh,

Your ideal weight should be around 80 to 85 Kilos.
Calorie consumption for your build should be around 2000 to 2200 cals.
Slowly you should try to reduce it by 1500 cals in span of say 6 months.
Also you should get into vigorous activities such as cardio, dynamic yoga or jog-walking etc.
Through exercise you should burn 300 cals a day. (4-5 times/week)

You could also use a tailor made Diet-Chart to achieve your weight loss.
