Your cat may require a true restricted diet control...and I really recommend this because of the increased chance of diabetes.
Take time to stop by your vet office...and ask them about true veterinary restricted calorie diets. They programs where you "weigh in" the cat and start the program. There are a variety of different brands...so don't give up if he is too picky. PLUS they come in canned foods too!
