There are lots of ways to lose weight, but it's important to do it in a healthy way. Quick weight loss tricks might work, but in the end he could gain it back and actually put himself at risk. Doctors, nutritionists and personal trainers are all great resources to go to. They can personally evaluate his health, body fat, etc. (the weight isn't important, the body composition is). A few things to do if that is not an option for him. Weight Watchers (sounds lame, a bunch of my fit and overweight friends have done this, it's a great program and affordable), cutting down on fats, sugars, carbs is also good. Focus on lean proteins and vegetables. Portion control is also key. An app on smart phones that is free and a great resource is MyFitnessPal. Personally, when I start putting on weight I just focus on portion control. I tend to either lose weight and then gain it back or even gain weight if I'm too strict and I won't allow myself any bad foods. So I give myself a freebie everyday, but I really portion control it. I try to fill up on fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and stay hydrated. If I still want something bad, just a little is okay.
He needs to cut out junk food from his diet, or have very minimal, eat lots of fruits and vegetable, portion control (meaning smaller portions, but enough to fill him up), and exercise. Now, walking every night after dinner can help a lot, especially if he's consistent. This is all very easy. The hardest thing is getting started and getting in the swing of things. After that, it's easy.

Healthy eating and exercise is the only real way. Don't believe those ads or whatever you;ll see, It will take a while yes, but ease into it. Remember to eat a big breakfast, medium sized lunch, and a smaller dinner. Stop late night snacking. Try drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before each meal, and remember to DRINK a lot of water. Eliminate temptations from the house and don't give up. If will be hard, yes, but it is totally worth it Remember it is a life style, not a diet. He will need to continue these habits after too and try keeping the weight off, but by the time he reaches his goal he will probably be in the go with things. Good luck!
