From Ted, child's age 14

Hey guys. Just took custody of my brother’s now 14 year old son. Haven’t seen him in a couple of years and he’s absolutely massive. Went to the doctor for a check in and the boy is 300 pounds at 5’4. Doctor is really concerned. Didn’t realize he was that fat, but should have realized as he’s out of breath when we go for our walks. He likes to eat and is always asking for fast food, apparently my brother fed him a fast food dinner nearly every night. Anyways, I’m a bit hesitant about putting him on a diet as he’s a bit sensitive and fear that he’ll lash out and sneak behind my back. Also difficult as I’m not his father, but will be his guardian for the foreseeable future. Any thoughts?
