Tips for helping a friend make the connection and become vegan

I have been trying to find ways to help my best friend convert to veganism for different reasons. She has been dealing with significant weight gain so it has taken a toll on her self esteem. I told her about RT4 and how you can lose weight effortlessly by eating HCLF vegan foods without having to restrict calories so that appealed to her. I figured that since she didn't have the research and facts to allow her to understand why this was the best lifestyle- not only for health but for the sake of the animals and the planet- I thought that showing her a few videos about the meat and dairy industry might help her make the connection.

First, I had her watch Earthlings, The Best Speech by Gary Yourofsky and a few other videos. Next, I explained the types of meals she can eat and the basics of RT4. She tried it out for about a week but then went back to her SAD diet. It's really frustrating for me because I made the switch immediately after watching Earthlings and never looked back, so I don't understand how a person can watch something like that and continue to eat meat and dairy. I really want to help her because I know that this lifestyle will help her health, weight loss and benefit the animals but I feel like I'm being too pushy cause I bring this conversation up almost every time I see her or talk to her.

She's a bit lazy about preparing her own meals and there's usually some sort of meat/fish meal already prepared by her mom so I can see why it would be convenient for her just to stick to her old ways. She also eats out a lot with her bf on date nights and usually goes for sushi (even though I showed her a video on the dangers of eating fish she still continues to eat it).

Any tips on how I can help her make the connection? I'm not really sure what else I can do.

Here is the reality. Most ppl would rather be fat sick n dead than change. Your best friend happens to be like most ppl. My best friend happens to be like most ppl. Now we can either be upset by this or accept it and focus on helping those we can help. Which is the better use of our energy? To do the right thing must do all we can. No more no less. Every minute we waste on those who don't want to be helped is a minute less time spent helping those who do.
