You can stop wondering why you have not succeeded at trying to lose weight and exercise more.  We are surrounded by the wrong messages and are led down a path to alleged solutions that are not sustainable.

Why would you continue to follow a program that asks you to white-knuckle your way through it in the hopes that you will start to like your new habits and behaviors? 

The End of Try Try Again Action Workbook turns that approach on its head and spells out a different approach to diet and exercise that will stay with you forever.  This approach follows on from the basic principles laid out in Kristen’s book, The End of Try Try Again.  Both books are based on body/brain science and her extensive experience working with clients.  

The Action Workbook is just that.  It provides a clear, concise, progressive action plan that empowers you to make specific small changes over time.  Using her expert guidance, you chose each change for yourself.  The end result is a series of changes that will finally get you to the diet and exercise goals that may eluded you in the past. 


Are you sick and tired of trying to lose weight and exercise more? Do you wonder why you haven’t been able to reach your goals, or do you even blame yourself for that? 

The End of Try Try Again Action Workbook is the companion book to The End of Try Try Again.  Both books are for anyone who has tried repeatedly to lose weight and exercise more, only to fall back to old ways.  Both books provide you the right tools to make meaningful changes that will lead to reaching your goals of losing weight and exercising more. 

The End of Try Try Again provides the awareness of where we can go wrong and then leads the way to a new approach.  The End of Try Try Again Action Workbook follows on from there and gives you a step-by-step way to implement that new approach. 

Often we are surrounded by the wrong messages and are led down a path to alleged solutions that are not sustainable.  The End of Try Try Again and the Action Workbook call those out and replaces those messages with research-based actions that are sustainable.

Making big changes to how we eat and exercise is complex!  There are no easy answers!  But, the Action Workbook breaks the process down into an easy-to-follow, logical progression of small bites that lead to real change. It provides you with the guidance you need to make a series of meaningful and sustainable choices that will bring real success. 

The Action Workbook throws out the old message of needing to call up a great deal of motivation before taking on a new diet or exercise program.  When a change feels daunting, or not very appealing, where is the incentive to keep going with it? 

The Action Workbook provides a step-by-step guide to switching your approach to your weight loss and exercise goals. You end up celebrating each change as a win, feeling the results, and staying motivated to continue.  By the way, each new action you choose comes from you!  The Action Workbook gives you the tools, and then lets you select the changes that fit into your life.  After all, no one knows you and what your life is like better than you! 

This workbook walks you through a process of habit and behavior change, and perhaps more importantly, shows you how to evaluate what has been holding you back in the past so that you can move forward in a different way. 

The Action Workbook uses a thoroughly researched and tested approach that is not just another shot in the dark!  It is not based on another “diet” or a set of advice, but rather sets you up to take the right actions, in the right order, and with the right approach to finally get you to your weight loss and exercise goals.  In the end, you become a healthier version of yourself…for good.
