The End of Try Try Again: Overcome Your Weight Loss and Exercise Struggles for Good by Kristen Carter, MS is designed for those who are fed up with yo-yo dieting and are looking for a sustainable, long-term solution. Carter approaches the usual hang-ups from different angles, one of which focuses on mindset and incremental change harmonious with how our brain and body function. Broken down into four distinct and interconnected parts plus an appendix with additional resources, Carter brings your thoughts, your body, and your solution to the table in a straightforward and easy-to-digest format.
The first thing I thought when I picked up Kristen Carter's The End of Try Try Again was that it might provide a new nugget or two of helpful advice, but would otherwise be relegated to the stack of other diet books that may or may not be covered in dust in the back of my closet. Carter genuinely surprised me. This isn't a diet; it is a lifestyle adjustment that happens in a way that feels organic and more like a natural progression toward overcoming the struggle instead of band-aiding it. Habit changing might seem obvious but through Carter's accessible guidance on simply rethinking its advent and how those intentional small changes are practical enough to make success achievable, the landscape looks far less overwhelming and desolate. I can see this book applying to many facets of life beyond nutrition and exercise and believe other readers will feel the same.
