Publisher's Summary

Peter Walsh, the best-selling author of It's All Too Much, believes that the secret to successfully losing weight is to forget about calorie counting and weekly weigh-ins. Instead, you need 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. The same is true for losing weight: It's not about the pounds, it's about living the life you deserve in the body you want.

Using his expert techniques, honed from years as a clutter expert and organizational consultant, Peter demonstrates how the clutter in your home is directly related to the clutter on your body, and how clutter negatively affects your ability to lead a full and healthy life. This plan shows you how to clean up not just the spaces where you eat, but the routines around them, from planning meals and shopping to dinnertime rituals.

Peter knows all the pitfalls, and in Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? he gives you the tools (and courage) you need to get over all your excuses, face the issues, and create the healthy life and body you have always imagined for yourself.

worth the listen

the single best concept that was presented in this book was respect. If you don't respect the object enough to care and use it why is it in your house. Also the idea of clutter stressing you and causing you self comfort with food was something I hadnt thought about. and makes a lot of sense. I enjoyed the book and the authors voice is easy to listen to. He does a great job of reading his book.

GREAT BOOK WITH A VERY SILLY TITLE!

So ignore the title! The book is about clutter in your house and your life and in the food you eat. Actually I have not finished listening to this one. I know about food clutter and am down 29 pounds on Nutri-System, so for the moment all my junk food proclivities are in check. After listening a bit, I realized I need to get "It's All Too Much" so I got that and listened to it and was immediately motivated to get rid of a lot of stuff. Peter asks questions that make a person say, Let it go! Yes, it all goes! Some of his other readers report losing weight while they were de-cluttering their homes! I had thought my French knitting books from the 70's were part of me. No. And the church organ music starting in the 50's and continuing into Spain and Germany. No. Not me anymore. I will not play for another wedding or church service! I will not be crocheting a bikini or knitting any baby clothes. Whee! Peter makes these decisions easy and leaves his clients and readers free to let in new kinds of life. Thanks, Peter!

Fat is Clutter

If you could sum up Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? in three words, what would they be?

It's all perspective

Have you listened to any of Peter Walsh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I will listen to others.

Any additional comments?

Realizing that an out of control environment plays havoc with your weight makes sense and is a great concept to work to control. I enjoyed this listen very much and am listening to it again.

A cluttered and dull narration

This audio book is a perfect example of when the author should not narrate his own audio book. Walsh's dull narration has very little inflection and no enthusiasm for the topic. If you manage to get beyond this, the points of the book could have been made in less than an hour - your cluttered environment contributes to excess pounds. His recommendations are nothing that haven't been in other books on clearing clutter and losing weight. The world didn't need another book on the topic. I had to chuckle to myself when, after he has gone on and on about getting rid of the stuff in your house, he recommends you go buy one of his other books! Note that he doesn't recommend that you go to the library and check it out. Save your money, save your time. Clean your house; you'll lose weight - that's all this book says.
