I have the same problem with my two boys. My nephew is a stick but out eats all of us. When he first came to live with us he used to eat tons of chips and garbage food and he wasn't active. He was actually obese. In the last year in half I cut out most of the garbage and he plays school sports. He has a hard time keeping the weight on. He has gotten so skinny. My son has my genes and is on the heavier side. While he isn't crazy about healthy food he doesn't over eat and even limits the amount of food he eats.
The boys get 2/% milk, I get skim
The boys get some snacky type crackers and stuff in their lunch, 2 sandwhiches, carrots and a fruit. I get a salad, with a lean meat, a little shredded cheese, and fat free dressing.
The boys come home and I will have a high carb meal (spaghetti, or something with rice or potatoes) I usually have a high protein meal. They do chores, school work and then head back to practice.
They boys get a second dinner, a smaller one. Bigger than a snack, but smaller than a meal when they get back from practice.
I know I don't burn calories like a teenage boy. So I eat differently.
