Cut out the processed sugary boxed crap he gets. Get his behind moving.

Healthy whole foods and exercise. It's not a huge mystery.

Diet and exercise. Make sure you have healthy balanced meals available and the he is outside, either doing a sport or even just kicking a ball around.
Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains and get rid of the sugary snacks so he's not tempted.
