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.

5I 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.

4Want to feel great, look good 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.

4Physicians.....please take notes...
By A customer
At the age of 46,I found myself approximately 25 pounds heavier than I had been all my adult life, even with a healthy lifestyle and diet. The only explanation was that the weight gain must be genetic. In a photograph at my niece's wedding, I became aware of the fluid retention in my face. It was obvious. I have two cousins in my generation with kidney transplants so I am very careful to note any change in kidney function. I research the matter from time to time and found "The Waterfall Diet" on the internet. I purchased the book and after following the recommended foods for one month, I lost 8 pounds and have managed to loose more with regular maintenance. It was also quite entertaining to gain understanding of differences in terminiolgy and foods from one country to another. I highly recommend this book as a gift for every woman over age 30.
