try putting it on for short increments of time and treating him, slowly extending the time he keeps it on but not too quick that he reacts negatively. put his collar by things he likes, such as near his food bowl while he's eating. this makes him associate the collar with good things such as his food and treats.

I'm with @timber. I just put Tessa's collar on and left it, eventually she just got used to it. Pretty simple. If you keep taking it off when he acts sad or doesn't eat, then he'll just learn if I act this way eventually the thing I don't want on me is going to come off. The collar isn't hurting him, and I doubt it's hindering his ability to eat, so put on him and leave it.
