How can you make your cat lose weight?

My cat used to be an outdoor cat but we move to a bigger neighborhood about 9 months ago and we have been keeping him indoors now. He was always a big cat but now he has gotten very fat. We tried to feed him diet cat food but he refused to eat it. We feed him twice a day, about 3/4-1 cup per feeding. Is this too much or does he just no get as much exercise now indoors?

There are special weight control cat foods on the market today like these foods- http://www.petsmart.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=2768975&f=Taxonomy%2FPET%2F2768975&f=PAD%2FpsNotAvailInUS%2FNo&lmdn=Health+Consideration&f=PAD%2FHealth+Consideration%2FWeight+Control&fbc=1&fbn=Health+Consideration%7CWeight+Control&fbx=0. A simple switch in your cat's diet can have a big effect on his weight and help him lose and maintain a healthy weight. To get him to eat weight control food you can mix in his old food with the weight control food and gradually mix in less until you don't have to mix in any of his old food at all.
