Default Big cat, bad health

Well I'll say it straight out. My cat is 17 pounds. Waaaay overweight. I really don't know what to do. I have 3 cats and I feed them 3 times a day. Morning, afternoon, night. Basically breakfast, lunch, dinner. Now I know my cat might be stealing food from the other cats. I tried separating the food and feed them in different places but it doesn't work. I tried exercising him but after 3 minutes he isn't into it as much as the first 30 seconds. I still don't know what to do and I'm afraid he might get something like diabetes. Can you please help me.

Well I will take your advice on bringing him to a vet. Now there is a problem though. He doesn't really eat dry food. In fact if you gave him a cup he would only eat maybe less than half. He really only eats wet food which isn't the best for a cat all the time. I looked at the bag for how much I should put for his weight. It said about 1 cup. I cleaned the bowl, took the cup and poured 1 cup from a measuring cup. Put the bowl down and all he does is stare at it and rub against me. So I'm going to take him to a vet soon. If he's hungry I guess he'll eat it. Thanks for the help. Oh and that thing about taking it away. What about wet food. Not saying I feed them that every time but only the times I do. How will I take that away? It might become old before the next time I give them it. Or it won't be enough.
