Amanda, how long has he had rapid weight gain for? When was his last growth spurt? Sometime they gain quite a bit of weight in preparation for a growth spurt in height. I guess it just depends how much he is gaining.

Also, look at his portion sizes, you may be cutting back on items but still serving large portions. Remember that even things like corn and potato are full of carbs. Look at what dairy product he is eating (and how much), and what cuts of meat. You also need to be careful about how much fruit or fruit juice he has, because these are full of sugar/carbs too.
