In much the same way that a cluttered home can stop you from living your best life, it can also sabotage your best efforts at controlling your weight. Most people who diet don't just go on one diet and succeed; they go on three or five or ten. And for most people, the diets fail because most diets are only about losing weight - they don't drill down into why you are carrying that weight around and why you want to lose it. In his years as a professional organiser, Walsh found time and again that people hid their real problems behind their "stuff." Peter believes that the secret to understanding how you got here and how to fix it all starts with one simple question: "Are you living the life you imagined?" This is not a diet, it's a complete life overhaul: The key to Peter's success is his ability to unlock people's psychological reasons for doing things and help them want to change. He brings that expertise to this book by showing how the obsession to accumulate and hoard does not just stop at possessions but is also how we approach and consume food.
He shows with simple steps how to clear out the clutter in your life so you can clear out the clutter in your kitchen, on your plate and in your body. In his classic straightforward style he will show readers how to stop the mindless accumulation once and for all so that they lose the weight and live the life they imagine.
