  1. Good afternoon Arunaditya,
    Welcome to Medimetry!
    First of all as per your height, your weight should be not more than 60 kg. However considering your age, I would recommend that instead of controlling your diet you perform more exercises.
    You need to perform at least 30 minutes of cardio exercises by running or jogging. You can also perform skipping rope and cycling. Along with it you can also perform strength training exercises like ab crunches and planks. These exercises will ensure that you loose fat and not muscle mass.
    Ensure that you have a good intake of proteins. You can include pulses, sprouts, fish, eggs, milk and poultry in your meals.
    Gynaecomastia is a condition where males develop breasts like females. However it is too early to say that in your case as what you are feeling is just because of the chest fats.
