How to help son (14) lose weight safely

18 years ago

My son is about 5' 8" and weighs 185 lbs. He is slightly depressed about his weight and this breaks my heart. His activity level is medium-low. He loves to sit at the computer and/or tv. Some of the things we are doing are: We have cut way back on fast food, we have less sugary, fattening foods in the house and more fruits, whole grains, etc. and we do some family activities that require physical activity on weekends. I don't know how to diet and my weight is average; I have been doing some exercises in the hopes of good modeling. We have some exercise equipment in the house that he uses occasionally. My hubby did Weight Watchers with great success and is thinking about joining again with our son. I was wondering if Atkins would work but I don't know anything about it. Any help? THANKS!
