In brief: Weight loss

Yes. Weight gain is totally due to the number of calories you eat.
Calorie intake can be reduced either by cutting down the total number of calories consumed or by exercising to work off the calories. If you cut your total calories in half you will lose a lot of weight (but one large meal a day diets are difficult to stay with); if you exercise, you will lose even more.
