Do pushups every day. They're great exercises, easy, and you can do them almost anywhere. Just get as many done as you can. Do cardio to burn the fat, and pushups to build up a bit of upper body mass. There are various positions that will help all different muscle groups in your arms, shoulders, chest, and core.

And use the pullup bars outside most HDBs. If you can even do one, just go as high as you can and hold it as long as you can.
Thanks, yeah, I realize how useful push ups are and have started doing them, although just 12 a day in 1 go. I also do leg lifts.
I just did some googling on my calorie intake and I am actually not a big eater, on the contrary I eat lot less than others and being a vegetarian and dont eat enough pulses, veggies or fruits. I realize that my diet may actually be giving me lesser calories than the actual 2000 calorie requirement and even those calories are predominantly from rice(carbs).
My daily routine is very sedentary. I think my body has gotten used to the low quality calorie intake and sedentary lifestyle and still stores away fat.
Atleast now I know where the problem is. Its not over eating. Its just eating right, which is easier to do than to reduce your eating if you are overeating. I have already started excercizing and eating right, so just need to kind of be consistent with it.
Thanks everyone for you advise and support.
