I assume this person is one of your personal clients needing physical therapy. Nutrition assessment and counseling for diabetes/weight loss, should only come from a Registered Dietitian. In the United States, a physical therapist could face legal action for providing these services without a degree and certification/liscensing. I am not sure of the rules in your country.
You may want to suggest a referral to see a Registered Dietitian so the appropriate diet can be prescribed based on medical needs.

I am not diabetic, nor an expert, however have read repeatedly from MANY different sources that by picking up his level of physical activity, bulking up on non-starchy veggies and some fruits and cutting back on highly processed sugary / fatty foods he will do wonders for his diabetes.
