Default Buddy won't eat his Evo.. aaargh!

so based on the good reviews I've read, I got a huge bag of this Innova Evo stuff and threw all my Pedigree stuff where it belonged - in the trash.

Buddy's kind of used to canned food and people food (I'm know, I'm bad) so he hasn't been eating the evo much at all. If I put some in my hand, he'll eat a few handfuls and then stop (which is ok, because he's only 25lbs). I've only had him for 2 months, but before that, he spent the first year or so of his life with people that ONLY FED HIM table scraps.

I've tried added a bit of warm water to the evo to liven it up - at first he ate it, but after that he started turning up his nose to it (it's pretty annoying! He'd sniff loudly, lift his nose in the air and walk away)..

so I've tried starving him.. No treats, no human food, just water. Then I'd put out the evo for 15 minute intervals. He still refuses to eat! It's been two days and it's turning into a battle of wills! I know he's not sick because he tried stealing human food off the dinner table last night.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Do I need to try something different or is he about to crack? Any tips on permanently weaning him off of people food?

Ive also considered mixing it with a quality canned food - can anyone recommend one that is of the same quality as the Evo?
