this is a pretty wide ranging request!

Check out Cooking Light magazine.  They have good lowfat versions of dishes and give nutritional data for all of the recipes.

I'm gonna take a stab in the dark here- does your brother drink soda?  Alot? If he weaned himself to diet (start out half regular half diet) soda I bet he would lose weight.  This is a total assumption though.  If he is the sort to drink only soda as his fluid for the day, that would be an easy fix.

to go with the soda comment, also cutting down on sweets helps.  since i got my braces on and stopped eatting candy and really gooey stuff, my mom is worried i've been losing weight.  other things is portion sizes, as well as alcohol consumption.
also just the types of the foods he is eating, leaner meats are better.  i'm not sure of recipes but googling it would be simple.

stirfry, steam or bake food (don't cover it in oil to bake it), rather than frying...
just a general tip.

if he really likes baked sweets try to look into vegan versions of everything (vegweb.com is a good site). a lot of times the fats in recipes are replaced with mashed bananas, apple sauce, and egg replacers (there's a recipe there for egg replacer too). it wont taste the same as regular versions but it might help him during sugar cravings. and basically get him to eat more vegetables and legumes and less fried and fatty foods. for example, a vegetarian chili is a lot lighter than a meat-packed chili and actually slightly easier to prepare.

tell him to have fresh fruit and sliced veggies in his bag at all times. this way if he gets hungry he'll be less likely to get a junk snack. i like to also carry a little serving of LIGHT bbq sauce to dip my veggies in. low-fat pop corn with toppings is also a good snack and is a LOT better than chips or doritos.

do you guys go out to restaurants a lot? if so tell him to ask the waiters to put sauces on the side (so he can control the amount) to leave out the butter on the veggies, to steam instead of stir fry veggies, broil instead of saute meats, etc. he can also ask them to take the bread basket away.

i also like to drink a tall glass of water before i eat when i can feel ill eat more than i should. it fills you up a bit before you even start to eat so there's less space for food in your stomach. i dont know if doctors would think this is a good idea but it works for me.

also... i dont know if he eats breakfast but he should! lunch should be his bigger meal rather than dinner. he should also try not to eat too much for 2-3hrs before bedtime.

ok so you asked for recipes but i didnt give you any. i hope this helps anyway.

i like www.allrecipes.com -- on there, you can choose what type of dishes you're looking for, such as vegetarian, low-fat, low-carb, as well as what type of meal. then, the individual recipes get rated by users, so if people haven't had a lot of success with a particular recipe, it's pretty easy to tell. also easy to tell if they liked something. there are also some comments in there, to let you know what went right/wrong. i didn't trust the ratings at first, but my experience roughly copied other users, so it works. LOADS of recipes.
and i personally love meringue cookies. buy them in the grocery. come in many flavors. no fat and like 10 calories a piece for the small ones. (there are larger ones, so check the label) i eat them for a chocolate fix.
hope that helps...
