Publisher's Summary

Have you ever "felt fat"? Do you beat yourself up when one bite of cookie dough turns into eating the whole batch? Have you dieted yourself into a larger dress size? Are you frustrated because hours of exercise have produced zero results?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Studies show that 75% of women suffer from some type of eating disorder. Whether it's bingeing, bulimia, or another addiction, the good news is there is hope.

W.A.I.T.loss: The Keys to Food Freedom and Winning the Battle of the Binge is about Wendy Hendry's journey to recovery from 35 years of binge eating and food addiction. Like many others stuck in their own cerebral food prison, Wendy dieted and binged her way into obesity.

Learning the keys to physical and mindful health that she shares in her book, Wendy was able to heal her body as well as free her mind. Now a certified Health Coach and Fitness Trainer, Wendy's W.A.I.T. (What Am I Thinking?) and Click approach to recovery has helped hundreds of others find that same freedom.

Most diets teach how to lose weight, but only through changing daily habits can weight loss be maintained. Weight loss should be a natural consequence of healthy living. This book will help you find that.

W.A.I.T.loss: The Keys to Finding Food Freedom and Winning the Battle of the Binge is the perfect combination of storytelling, common sense, humor and scientific proof that recovery is possible.

If you need help with bingeing, food addiction, chronic dieting or just simple weight loss, don't W.A.I.T. any longer!

    WHAT IT'S ABOUT
    W.A.I.T.loss: The Keys to Finding Food Freedom and Winning the Battle of the Binge is about Wendy Hendry’s journey to recovery from 35 years of dieting and bingeing. Like many others stuck in their own cerebral food prison, Wendy dieted and binged her way into obesity.

    MY TAKE
    I listened to the audiobook which Hendry narrated. She did a fabulous job. I'll probably listen to this again.

    The book follows her journey to overcome her tendency to binge eat. As someone who's been dieting for nearly half a century, I was sympathetic to many of the things she's dealt with. She shared what she's learned through experience and study (citing reliable sources).

    I like her philosophy and the relative ease of the plan she uses. Like her, I'm really busy. I don't have a lot of time for complicated processes. If it's too difficult, it ain't happening. I'm looking forward to giving this a try.

    "Thank-you Wendy Hendry!"

    I learned so many things from this book. How to be mindful, how to understand the brat and the PFC, how to understand action - habits - and addictions. I've listened to the book three times and learned something new each time. This book makes sense and is thoroughly enjoyable. I'm forever grateful. Thank-you Wendy Hendry❤️💜💚💙

    Story
    "relevant and attainable"

    Everything in this book relates to my life. The details may be different, but the experiences are the same. Wendy has lived it, therefore she understands the daily struggles with self-worth, motivation, frustration, weight loss, and overall self improvement. She offers incredible insight and examples that are real and relatable. She offers strategies that target specific brain based reactions to overcome our physical, mental, and emotional habits. She does not claim to have a "cure all," but she shares her knowledge, experiences, and strategies that helped her gain her self esteem and health. As a teacher and coach I have studied how the brain learns, but for some reason I have never applied that knowledge to self improvement and health habits. It makes perfect sense that retraining your brain concerning health habits would require the same mental processes as learning a new skill or gaining knowledge. Incredible concept. Thanks Wendy for sharing your failures and successes.

    Wendy Henry has a very pleasant voice unlike most the audible books that sound computer generated.

    "insightful"

    Wendy Hendry takes you through a very personal journey of mindfulness and success! Exercise is not top dog to figuring out your body chemical reaction to body changes - it's your ability to understand your brain!

    "Real, without victim hood , inspirational"

    I really appreciate the authors total transparency! I really enjoyed her her humor and yet serious top that can plague so many, Even if it's not with food . This subject of the 2 part brain should be taught at school and at home as it affects all of us at our very natures with the thousands of decisions we make everyday! Thanks Wendy!

    "GAME changer."
    What made the experience of listening to W.A.I.T.loss the most enjoyable?

    Hendry's narrative voice makes it feel like she's sitting on the couch next to me. I loved how accessible she made this concept!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of W.A.I.T.loss?

    Her explanation of the difference between a habit and addiction, and what those differences look like in the brain, was so insightful, fascinating, and USEFUL! But the real gift, here, is that she doesn't just explain what's happening. She gives us the TOOLS to CHANGE it! This was a game changer for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I originally picked up Hendry's book to understand binge eating for the benefit of a couple of my clients. I wanted to know what they were dealing with. I had no idea that I was dealing with most of the same tendencies this book addresses. I went in hoping to help a client - and came out having helped myself in a very real, very immediate way. Now I am asking ALL of my clients to read this book! Their reactions have been the same - this book is a game changer in the field of understanding our relationships to food (and other addictions/habits)!


    Any additional comments?

    It's a relatively quick listen for all of the gold it contains. Do yourself the BEST favor! Grab it!

    "Her Story is Pretty Much My Story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I have a lot of friends who struggle with their relationship to food!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I related with her life and story on so many ways.


    What about Wendy Hendry’s performance did you like?

    She's real:)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I was so excited to listen to this book on Audible! I clove held wait to listen every day to hear what Wendy had to say to me! I TOTALLY connected to her on so many levels and was grateful she took the time to articulate her experiences with food, do the research behind her eating habits, and then shared with me! She helped me understand what's going on I. My brain and empowered me to strengthen my brain "muscle." While waiting for my clicker, I found myself giving me "fake clicks"....and it worked! So excited to have my "real" clicker now start seeing the numbers. Thank you for your insights Wendy! I got this!
