Fruit diet for Teenagers
10Avoid fast food and junk food (French fries, pizza, etc.) It's only okay once in a while, but if you keep buying junk food, learn to overcome it
11Eat only until you are satisfied. Do not over stuff yourself. If you are given a ton of food on your plate, don't feel obligated to eat it all.
12Try to avoid stress or learn to deal with it. Stress will cause pig-outs.
13Try to replace things you usually eat with something healthier. If you're reaching for a handful of chips, force yourself to stop, and go grab an apple instead. (Note: this can be easier said than done.)
14Avoid large quantities of sugar. Avoid eating chocolate and crisps first thing in the morning. This can make you lose your concentration and you won't be able to concentrate at school. And you may get headaches.
15Every time you go to put something in your body, ask yourself: "Is this going to improve my health, or harm it?" If the answer is the second one, you know what to do.
16You should also ask yourself WHY you are eating something before you eat it. If the answer isn't "It's time for lunch/dinner/breakfast and I'm hungry, " PUT IT BACK.
17If you have a very sugary diet, you may get a Sugar Withdrawal Headache. These are tough to deal with and hurt a lot, so if you can't just ignore it, keep a single Hershey bar (or other candy bar) in your locker a week. Eat a single square when you get a headache and it'll help. Make sure it doesn't melt, or you'll end up tricking yourself into eating more than one "square" (melted lump). Remember to change it out about once a week, or it'll get moldy and make you sick. Even if there's some left.

Ask him to take a walk or a bike ride, it can be a 20 minute break, daily. That's enough to get him fresh air and maintain general health.
Posture may be suffering because of the computer setup. Check the chair height, chair back, keyboard at the right height - make it easy for him to sit up right, or at least not impossible to sit up right.
Make sure he is getting vegetables, fruit and protein. And get vitamin supplements. I get the colorful ones with shapes: silly but the teenagers laugh and take them instead of forgetting. High school gives out a lot of candy here, so it is hard to control the percent of sugar in the diet: thus supplements
