Diet conundrum

We have a problem in our house.  We all love food and will try many different varieties of it.  I love cooking and baking.  This week I finally got around to redoing my menus in order to make shopping easier (and thus spend less money!)  I have a whiteboard strategically placed in my kitchen; ready for the list of food items which need replacing.  I hope my menus turn out to be a careful balance between meat, fish and pulse dinners that satisfy each and every family member. 

But I digress slightly as that is not the problem.  The problem is this:  I have worked hard this year and am extremely proud of my achievement in losing weight.  This has been down to exercise and slight changes in diet.  Unfortunately, the same has happened to my husband (not the exercise but the weight loss).  Last year he was proud of his achievement to get more weight on him!  He has been told to watch his saturated fat intakes due to a slight excess of cholesterol.  So therein lies our conundrum. 

How do I get a good balanced diet which keeps me the weight I enjoy being but doesn't allow my husband to lose all his?  For those few of you that read this blog.  If you have any good healthy weight-gaining snacks that my husband can partake, please let me know.  What about exercise that he might be able to do to. Before my husband becomes a shadow.  Thanks.
