He needs to have a balanced diet. Go by the glycemic index, if the carbohydrate content is more in any food then avoid it or have it in minimal amounts. Otherwise follow the normal guidelines of  Low Fat, Low Sugar, Low Salt, Plenty of Fruit and Vegetables, and Plenty of Complex Carbohydrates. Also he needs to follow exercise program and sugar monitoring.

If it has 5 carbs or less it is considered a free food. Carbs turn into sugar. Smaller meals more often will keep a more steady sugar level. No sweets. Peanut butter can cure the sweet craving. But be careful it raises sugar levels fast so only a little.
