Trying to reduce your weight while your body is still growing would be potentially disastrous. Concentrate on eating a healthy diet with as few processed foods as possible.

Instead increase your power to weight ratio by becoming stronger. Do this by doing hill repeats - eg climb for 5 minutes, glide back down, repeat 3-5 more times. Don't do this more than two days in a row and be careful not to up intensity too fast - if you get muscle soreness a day after exercising you're pushing too hard. But gradually increase the intensity, so that you're going faster and up steeper hills. After training like this for a couple of days, allow yourself a rest day off the bike or riding slowly on the flat - if you don't have these recovery days, you won't benefit. Try to fit in a couple of days a week of training like this - three would be even better - and you will get much, much faster on hills and in sprints.

+1, with strength training and taking the advice offered above about training rides.

You're at an age where a lot of guys are naturally really skinny due to recent rapid growth. Don't worry about being skinny... I've been around 48kg at 160cm most of my life (I'm 55) without ill effects from it. Looks like 48kg would be 7 stones plus a small rock.
