Surely there's implications with slowness of healing? Bones get brittle when you age and take 3 times the time to heal.

Jeannegibbs is correct, it is not easy. First you have to convince him that the good idea was all his and give him credit for it. I made the mistake of putting Lite Salt at dad's dinner plate and he growled "What the H*ll is this? If I wanted this I would have asked for it." My father was a bourbon and soda man.
So one week at dinner we offered him a bloody mary. BINGO! it was made with V8, fresh lemon juice and a tall stalk of celery. He even ate the celery. I guess sometimes you have to think outside the box.

I am a stubborn 70 YO. Good luck trying to get me to change my diet! Here is what it would take:

1) Conclusive evidence that the changes you are proposing would actually benefit me, and in what way. Articles from qualified experts would help. Rants and woo-hoo from zealots would not.

2) Information on ways to change my poor diet without costing a fortune in money or time.

3) Recipes and ideas that taste good.

4) Respect. If you treat me like a child, don't bother to even show up.

5) Small steps. Don't expect a total makeover at once. If together we can improve one aspect of my diet, consider that success.

Remember, helping a little ol' lady across the street is only a good deed if the little ol' lady actually wanted to cross the street.

First convince me that this would be a good thing.
