What can I do for overfeeding?

My roommate has been "helping" to feed my Betta without telling me, now he has some bad overfeeding problems. His stomach appears swollen, and the area near his tail, which looks like his intestines, also appears swollen, and the food in there is causing him to start listing. He doesn't look in too good shape, so I re-arranged some of his plants, so that he can lay near the surface without his whole body rotating on him. What can I do for him?

1) Fast the betta.
2) Tell your roommate (Nicely!)
3) Hide the fish food.

It might also help you get your point across if you inform him that a betta's stomach is approximately the size of his eye.

Thanks. I talked to my roommate, and stashed the food already.

I wish there is something more I can do for him, he looks so uncomfortable :(

At least he isn't stressed out about it though.
