Is there any way he would take walk, hike, bike or something with you? so that when he is stressed he can do this, instead of eat. It may help him to talk as well and get things out. It maybe hard to have him join you at the gym, but just a walk is a good start.
For me I found i love kickboxing type workouts cause I can really get into the punches when I am upset. And I feel so much better afterwards.
What about replacing some of the junk food with other foods?
Replace some potato chips with popchips, or indiana popcorns popcorn chips - lower calories.
I found that the Dannon Oikos caffe latte flavor tastes just like an expresso cheesecake (Great for a dessert).
make some healthier muffins (carrot or pumpkin muffins, blueberry, bran....)
at least he would have some other alterntives to junk.
