Water retention can be simply defined as swelling in the body’s tissues, caused by fluid collecting there instead of returning to the blood circulation. This problem has many different causes.
If you have a problem such as swollen legs, premenstrual water retention, puffy ankles, feet, hands or face, you will find explanations here. You will also find out when it is necessary to take water pills (diuretics) or whether these pills will do more harm than good for your particular type of water retention, even if they are natural supplements.
If you have a particular question you would like answered, you can always leave a comment in the boxes provided, and Linda will try to answer when she has time.

Personal help is also available in the form of online consultations, but if you have little money to spare Linda recommends that you first follow the advice in her books. The Waterfall Diet book is very comprehensive, and can be purchased from Amazon websites, but if you prefer something shorter and more succinct, you can download Linda’s E-guide straight away, entitled Low Carb Dieting and the Waterfall Diet. This E-guide was written for people wanting to lose both body fat and water retention in the form of water weight, but you do not have to restrict yourself to low-carb foods.
