Of course you’re sceptical. Why wouldn’t you be? Everyone else keeps saying that water weight doesn’t stay off, that you can’t lose weight that quickly, that it’s not healthy and so on.
So what are my credentials? Well, first of all, I’ve written several books on dieting, and they’ve been published by major international publishing houses, including HarperCollins and LittleBrown. After I submitted the manuscript for my Nutritional Health Bible in 1997, the editor at HarperCollins said “Linda, no-one knows more about this stuff than you do…” I can’t think of any better compliment than that. In 1999 my third book the Waterfall Diet became an instant best-seller in the UK.
I trained as a naturopathic nutritionist, and this has been my profession for 19 years. I very quickly developed my own methods and my results were so impressive that I was hired by the British National Health Service to work in a GP (family doctor) practice in London in 1991. All the doctor’s cases of overweight, IBS, fatigue, arthritis, skin problems, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and recurrent headaches, were referred to me.
Then in 1997 I founded the British Association for Nutritional Therapy and Applied Nutrition. My first book Principles of Nutritional Therapy, inspired hundreds of people to train as nutritional therapists. There was so much demand that in the late 1990′s, with my assistance, the University of Westminster in London set up a new degree course for people to study this important subject.
For me it’s a matter of personal pride not to churn out the same stuff as other writers. Yes, I could have written a whole book repeating what everyone else says: “Water retention comes from eating too much salt. Here’s a salt-free diet for you, and by the way don’t forget to drink water and ask your doctor for some diuretics.” You’ve already read all that stuff, and you know it’s not enough. You’ve also read other tips and snippets, but have probably ended up more confused than ever.
I’d rather help people than just make money. It’s very, very easy to make money by telling people what they already know. In fact if you’ve already heard it somewhere else you’re more likely to trust it. Does that ring a bell?
The Story of the Waterfall Diet
The diet comes from research which I painstakingly extracted from medical journals – research carried out by scientists all over the world. Some of it was buried in obscure publications and needed someone to join up all the dots and turn it into a practical formula.
It took me a year to compile all this information and create a diet formula that I thought would work. Then another year to test the diet on people. Then another year to write and publish a book about how and why the diet works.
It’s not hard to lose water weight temporarily – the challenge is to stop it coming back. That is what the Waterfall Diet is all about.
You’re welcome to go on being sceptical, but one thing I will say. If you’re determined to lose your water retention, you won’t find so much information to help you anywhere else. Please feel free to check out the reviews for the Waterfall Diet book on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. And don’t forget there’s also an E-guide available to download.
I’d love to get your feedback in the comment box.
