"This book is full of heartfelt, life-changing, and life-saving information that should be read and embraced in every African-American home. I salute and celebrate Lottie Perkins for enlightening and bringing our people to a place of higher understanding that we should not "EAT TO DIE"  - rather "EAT TO LIVE."

Listen to Dr. Lottie's  personal message about what inspired her  to  write a transformational book that urges African-Americans to change their attitudes about health.


Eating to Die:

Changing African American Attitudes About Health
