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!

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.

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!

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.

A must read for the food addict

It seemed as if she were telling my story about food and weight obsession, which is relieving to know that she was able to overcome it. I appreciate the balance of humor and scientific studies; which are presented in a relatable manner. Wendy also alleviates the shame regarding "lack of will power" by explaining how that "muscle" is exhausted. I will recommend to any of my friends who suffer with binge eating.

I needed this help years ago!! I'm grateful to have it now!

I was able to actually hear Wendy speak. I was so excited to find the help I've been looking for for years. She addresses how to use mind over emotion and puts in into a Scenario I understand. I will be on her website and follow her suggestions starting today! Thank you Wendy.

Just What I Was Looking For

Where does W.A.I.T.loss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very good book! Straight to the point. Not too long, not too short. She makes the process seem very doable and everything is soo well explained in an easy going manner. Finally someone who has the guts to mention that she couldn't find any evidence to prove why we should drink gallons of water everyday! I'm alway bugged by this...I agree, we should make a water effort every day, but the amount we're told to drink baffles me. Also, I love exercise but I agree that it hasn't worked for me either killing myself in the gym.
I just wanted to be more relaxed around food and out of the three books I've read on this subject, this has maybe the more relaxed approach.
I can't see me doing her clicker trick, but I've taken everything else on board that she's advised.

What other book might you compare W.A.I.T.loss to and why?

In this category I've already read Never Binge Again and Brain over Binge. I would rate Brain over Binge my favorite and this a very close second.

What about Wendy Hendry’s performance did you like?

Super easy to listen to the author as a narrator. She should be paid to read books because many other titles I've downloaded are terrible to listen to because of the narrators!

THE BEST DIET BOOK SO FAR

I finally found a diet book that has not been padded with pages (or listening time) of scientific information that is incomprehensible unless you have a degree in medicine. This is a wonderful book in that the ideas are clear and the narrator is the author, which means she is quite passionate about helping others. I have read many books on health and eating and the info is often repeated and sometimes conflicting. WAITloss is clear, simple and easy. I will be reading it again as it is quite short in comparison to others book of this type. Thanks you Wendy!!!!!!!!!!!!
