In brief: Eat low calorie food
Helpful weight loss foods are natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories.
Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (without salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits contain natural sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. If one craves candy, he can chew sugarless gum.

In brief: Zone diet
Teens do best on the zone diet which includes 40% complex carbohydrates 30% lean protein and 30% healthy fat.
The caloric intake depends on the height weight and age and usually they can take up to 1800 to 2000 cal since they are growing. I suggest you see with a weight loss specialist to put him on a proper diet but i've had very good success prescribing the zone diet for teenagers.
