Help me prove that anything but raw fruits vegetables nuts and seeds. Is not healthy and the damage it will cause.
I need facts on dairy, eggs, meat, and grains
and cooked food in general, also I need proof that you don't need a lot of protein, to build muscle. I need proof that "older people" can build muscle and get cut on a HCRV diet
I'm trying to convince family members...
Don't bother trying to convince anyone. They see it as a challenge to their beliefs, which is most insulting to their intelligence. Eat what you believe to be beneficial to you and you will be the shining example of health and that will speak volumes more than any argument would.

Of course we focus on fruit, lettuce greens, and some nuts. For anyone wanting a quick intro:

dr greger provides the actual scientific studies done on this.
The best way to convince people (and I tried it with success in my life on different matters than diet) is to have them believe that the original idea comes from them. I you try to impose *your* idea/position, they will always resist and find futile arguments, and when you smash every of their arguments with irrefutable proof, they will just refuse to talk about it anymore. People don't like to be "defeated/humiliated". People are curious and like to discover things "by themselves".
So make it so that that person you're trying to convince, discovers the dangers of bad diet or the benefits of fruits by herself. Be subtle :-p For example a few hours after she had a meal with chicken, make a small remark about how she looks tired. Or after she had fruit, tell her how she looks happier or her skin looks better ("oh, did you change something to your make-up ?"), or anything positive. After a few of these compliments, something will click in her mind... Then if you forget a book by her place about healthy diet and "by chance" she finds it, she may start reading it; or you could send her an email with a link about something interesting to read, and then send another email pretending it was a mistake, you meant to send it to someone else... Out of curiosity there is a great probability she will follow the link.
very well observed gousti !
