Summary

Summary

A houseful of clutter may not be the only reason people pack on extra pounds, but research proves that it plays a big role. A recent study showed that people with super-cluttered homes were 77 percent more likely to be overweight or obese! Why? Author Peter Walsh thinks it's because people can't make their best choices-their healthiest choices-in a cluttered, messy, disorganized home.

In Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight , organizing guru Walsh comes to the rescue with a simple 6-week plan to help readers:

- Clear their homes of excess "stuff" as they discover their vision for their personal space
- Clear their bodies of excess pounds as they follow a healthy, super-simple eating and exercise plan
- Clear their minds and spirits of the excess weight of too many possessions

All the pieces are connected-and Walsh weaves them together for a 6-week program that leads readers step-by-step through decluttering their homes, their bodies, and their lives. Rodale took the program for a test-drive with two dozen volunteers who followed his plan. All reported great results-from significant weight loss to calmer minds and more organized, happier, and more efficient lives.

With a room-by room organizing guide, plus super-simple recipes and an easy exercise plan, Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight is the only book to help readers clear the clutter while they zap the pounds all at the same time.
