From the Author
A Breakthrough for People Who Find it Hard to Lose Weight.
The Waterfall Diet begins with the seemingly outrageous statement that you can literally urinate away pounds of your excess body weight. By drinking less? No. By finding out whether you suffer from hidden fluid retention and then using this diet to control it. Fluid retention looks like fat and makes you overweight, but you can't lose it by eating less. This is why so many people eat next to nothing yet still cannot reach their target weight. There are at least seven different causes of fluid retention. To get rid of it, you have to know which type of fluid retention you have, so that you can avoid the foods which are making it worse, or eat the foods which will make it better. The book contains questionnaires to help you every step of the way, and the diet itself is in three parts. Only the first part (which lasts 2 months) is difficult, but since it is not a low-calorie diet, you may even find it easier than what you are used to. Many people do. If your problem is fluid retention, it really is possible to urinate away up to 14 pounds of your body weight in one week. This is a genuine claim based on scientific research which has been collected by the author by trawling through hundreds of scientific papers.

I would advise every woman to read this book!
By A customer
I loved this book from beginning to end. It explains how sometimes being overwight doesn't necessarily mean having too much fat, but fluid retention could be one of the causes. If you are one of those people that is always on a diet and performing lots of execercise and still find it hard to shed those extra pounds, you will find this book extremely helpful. Some bits are quite scientific but still easy to read and well explained. The book initially helps you to find out if fluid retention could be your problem, what are the reasons that causes it and how to fix the problem. The book offers a diet program, easy to follow with easy and delicious recepies. I tried the program and followed the advices and it works! To help speed up the proccess of fluid elimination try some diuretic herbal teas as well.

Want to feel great, look good ..............read it!
By A customer
This book is crammed with usefull information, hints and is one you will refer to again and again. I have tried this diet and after a week not only have I lost 8 pounds I feel great, I have more energy and my skin is clearing up. Even if you have no weight to lose or no desire to shed some pounds I would recommend this book. It thought me to think about what I eat not just from a calorie perspective. The only criticism I would have is there is a lot of serious medical type information which takes a bit of reading to comprehend.

the waterfall diet
over half the book was all techical data and case studies to prove the waterfall diet would work.although it was very indepth and written in reasonable laymen terms it was hard going.
the actual diet section is quite short and the recipe section even shorter.
the title is very misleading because it implies that it is only a 14 day diet - its more like a six month diet that is very restrictive in the first 4-12 weeks.
the author continually points out that it is a health diet, not a weight loss diet and wile i am not doubting that the diet will work i have found it impossible so far to stick to for more than a couple of days which just isn't long enough to see any results.
also it is a very expensive diet to follow as you need a good quality juicer and the foods that you are allowed to eat are very expensive.
it would have been better if at the end of each chapter you had to remove something from your diet - that way it would not be quite such a shock to the system or the brain when you actually emark on the diet! mind you if the author gave the reader an insight early on that it would be such a restrictive and expensive diet they would throw it down after the first few chapters!
on the whole, so far, i would not reccommend the diet - but thats not to say that if i stuck to it ridgidly that it wouln't work.
