From Publishers Weekly
"Organizational consultant" and bestselling author Walsh (It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff) brings his less-is-more philosophy to weight loss in a guide that, ironically, proves bloated with unnecessary anecdotes and repetition. Most of Walsh's tried-and-true advice boils down to simple thoughtfulness, embodied in familiar exercises such as re-organizing your kitchen and pantry, making realistic meal plans you can stick to and "being present in the moment" while eating. Frequently admitting that he's no nutritionist, Walsh succeeds more as a cheerleader and coach; the book is overstuffed with anecdotes and accolades from fans who ostensibly encouraged Walsh to bring his clutter-cutting approach to the waistbands of America. Would-be dieters looking for a place to start will likely benefit from Walsh's straightforward style and the many worksheets and quizzes included, but those serious about making long-lasting dietary and lifestyle changes would probably be better served by an author with some degree of expertise in health and nutrition.
