If you click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' you will obtain a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet. Use this as a GUIDELINE to reduce the amount of fatty food he eats, but allow him to eat as much of the permitted foods as he needs to prevent getting hungry. Experts the world over agree that children and young teenagers should not go on strict diets (so moderate fat reduction is all that is required) and should rather get rid of their excess weight by doing exercise. So encourage his sporting activities and let him attend a good gym if possible to increase the amount of energy he expends. I like your relaxed approach.
