easywaterret_coverThe Easy Water Retention Diet

  • Provides a simple explanation of the different types of water retention and why water pills can be harmful for some types.
  • A one-week diet program which works to relieve water retention in up to 70 per cent of those with idiopathic edema (the most common type of water retention).


“I began Linda Lazarides’ water retention diet plan in earnest beginning of August, 2009. It is towards the end of September now and I have literally peed out almost 20 pounds worth of water weight. I lost 10 pounds in the first 3 weeks. I hope to drop another 5-10 pounds. I am fairly sure all my excess weight was water retention as I have always been a healthy eater. I don’t feel deprived by this diet. I eat plenty of foods and don’t get hungry.”

The Gourmet Nutritional Therapy Cookbook is all about helping people get over their health problems, including water retention. Naturopathic doctors estimate that one third of all ailments would disappear if people ate nothing but recipes from this book, not only because they are loaded with delicious superfoods, but because they eliminate the foods that most often cause symptoms. The great news is that the recipes are delicious too.

All recipes are free of wheat, dairy products, eggs, yeast, sugar and red meat. Most are also gluten-free and vegetarian.


“This is more than a recipe book! Once I started reading I could not put it down as the penny dropped that taking control of my spiralling health issues didn’t have to resort to pills. A week in I have learnt how to make non challenging delicious meals with the knowledge of what effect these foods are having on my body. I work full time, I feed a family and I am on a budget. This week I have learnt how to plan, have meals ready quickly and I think I may have saved money considering there is still a great deal of this weeks shop in the freezer! The big bonus has been time, happy kids (age 8 and 11) and I feel different, positive and healthier than I have in a long time.” (Amazon UK Customer)
