I needed motivation to clean up some of the clutter in my kitchen and this book was perfect! Peter Walsh gives good practical advice in a funny no-nonsense way. End result - I spent a day cleaning out the kitchen pantry and shelves, filled the recycle bin and garbage can, have another box to donate and have a much cleaner kitchen.

Not quite a diet book, but good motivation for cleaning up physical (or mental) clutter. Now if I only drop 7 pounds... ( )

I was a little skeptical when I first started listening to this audiobook, but well before the end, I was enjoying most of the advice and tips. My main gripe was that he kept referring back to things in a pdf file, quizzes to take, things like that. I listened to this in my car, so I never tried to find that pdf file at home. ( )

Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? falls into the genre of self-help books that focuses on the behaviors and habits - rather than specific foods - that lead to weight gain and what people can do to change those paradigms. The information in this book is valid. It is not new. The tone of the book came across as judgemental and negative. It focuses a lot on the "don'ts" or "can'ts". Example of statements are:

"If you can't be bothered to preserve a good table for your household, then it's very unlikely that you will bother to take good care of your body."

"You can't practice mindful eating if you're a zombie."

"If you don't respect yourself enough to create a happy space to live, then how can you treat your body with the honor and respect it deserves?" ( )

When Walsh’s original protégées cleaned their houses, they evidently lost weight. So he’s back to remind us to clean. There’s no more to it than that, and the case studies are so vague as to inspire no one.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

This is not a diet book. This is a book about your life--about creating the healthy life and body you have always imagined for yourself. Diets don't work--because they focus on what foods we should and shouldn't eat but completely ignore everything else that makes us fat. Clutter expert and organizational consultant Walsh believes that the secret to successfully losing weight is to focus on how, why, and where you eat. When it comes to clearing clutter (the fat in our homes) it isn't about the stuff itself, it's about the life you want to live. Peter helps you address how the clutter in your kitchen, your pantry, and your home is directly related to the clutter on your body and negatively affects your ability to lead a full and healthy life.--From publisher description.… (more)
