No matter the age it sounds like he needs some education about the whole way foods affect the body. It's something I never was taught in school & it should be or by the parents! I feel bad for chubby kids that end up picked on in school for it. It's not their fault that their parents never taught them about carbs...sad really! So sounds like lack of parenting & teaching if he's not old enough to know. Oh, and you should've kicked his ass out from in front of the Xbox & made him go play outside long before it had to come this plan he's on now!
Op, i was a pretty fat kid and my parents wanted me to lose weight badly. Nothing they did worked because i didnt care about my weight. When i finally gave a damn, i started to lose weight, and now, im living a healthy lifestyle. Moral of the story: OP, it sucks that ur kid is fat, but unless HE wants that to change, nothing u say or do will work. Youve got to get him to want to change himself.

I think you need to tell him not too be so fucking stupid. And that if he doesn't stick to his diet he's likely to rat himself into in early grave. He sounds like tough love is the answer.
well yes and no. its more likely that he will have a premature death with that kind of excessive eating but there are cases that have people over 90 that are over 300 ponds. I would tell him that its his life and he's going to be dealing with his weight problem, but if he sit there and tell you (and mean it) that he is fine with having a fat body then let him have it. best of luck op :)
Explain to him from a caring perspective that this type of thinking is exactly what got him into this flabby mass of a body. Proceed to toss a celery stock into his gravitational pull and hope it makes its way into his pie-hole.
