I have a 13 year old son who is ADHD, on meds for it and can be lazy as all get out. He does not have a fast metabolism and puts on weight easily. We entered his height (he's about 5'8") and his weight (173 after eating as such) in a BMI calculator and it told me that he is considered obese. He knows he needs to lose the weight, Hell I need to lose weight as well.
How can I go about (in a nice way) telling him about portions, good eating habits, fruits and veggies, water, etc. He sees his sister and younger brother eat just about anything and not put the weight on, but he eats the same stuff and the weight is put on.
