HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 26, 2012) - A new book challenges popular conceptions about healthy eating and nutrition for adults suffering from diabetes and heart disease. After more than a decade studying patients and researching the role of nutrition in diabetes and heart disease, Dr. Kota J. Reddy has created a healthy eating guide titled "Eat This, Lose That."

The book is intended for the general public, as well as practitioners and health professionals. It can be purchased on Amazon.com and ReddyBread.com.

"'Eat This, Lose That' is a testament to my patients' successes from diet modification," said Dr. Reddy. "The solution to weight loss and heart health does not depend on diet alone, but I believe it starts there."

This healthy eating book spans 250 pages and outlines what should and should not be eaten in order to lose weight, reduce cholesterol and control blood sugar levels. Dr. Reddy coined "the three S's" to make it clear what readers should avoid altogether, but also provides alternative food choices.

"It's not that people don't want to eat better or live healthier," Dr. Reddy said. "It's that people need to have the tools that make it easy. 'Eat This, Lose That' is that tool."

Dr. Reddy and his team have given copies of the book to several patients and colleagues to ensure the tips for healthy eating are easily understood by the layperson. The reviews have been positive.

"Dr. Reddy presents complex nutrition facts in ways which are interesting and easily understood, and he demonstrates convincingly that through proper diet one can have a powerful influence on the debilitating diseases of diabetes, hypertension, obesity and heart disease," said Dr. Rodney Paige, Former U.S. Secretary of Education and Former Superintendent of HISD.

"Eat This, Lose That" complements many aspects of Dr. Reddy's Houston cardiology practice, which includes the sale of Reddy Bread. Reddy Bread (tortillas, roti, flat bread and pita bread) is made from primarily soy and flax, which makes the bread gluten-free and low in carbohydrates.
