In brief: Lifestyle changes

Weight is often a severe social challenge at this age.
The basics are best - balanced diet, exercise, water not soda. If you have a strong family history of obesity and Type II diabetes ask your MD to perform a lipoprotein particle subset test to check his insulin resistance score. If elevated, early treatment with Metformin can help correct this metabolic problem. https://kurbo.com/
