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.

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.

Weight loss should be a natural consequence of healthy living. This book will help you find that.
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.
Wendy Henry has a very pleasant voice unlike most the audible books that sound computer generated.
Wendy! She's such an inspiration!
This book is very easy to listen to and very interesting! She has helped me in so many ways change my eating patterns and the way I see food in general
Highly recommended read!
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!
"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.
"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❤️💜💚💙
"Just What I Was Looking For"
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.
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.
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!
"A must read for any Binger!"
I listened to this book in one sitting; once I started, I didn't want to put it down. I am a Binger and felt that Wendy actually understood my problem intimately. Her advice was spot on and tremendously helpful. I would strongly suggest this book to any food addict who suffers from compulsive overeating. This is not a diet book or a quick fix book, but rather a specific book to give solace to those hoping to find much needed peace and healing.
The book is packed full; at great credit to the author. I was glad to have a computer close to type some much needed notes as I went through the content. I found that the advice and hints were things that I hadn't thought of before. I became motivated to implement some of the very practical suggestions immediately. In my opinion, this book is worth its weight in gold. I will be reading the book in its entirety again tomorrow and can't wait to find what I may have missed during the first sitting.
"Informative and entertaining!!"
I liked the information and the practical application. I loved the stories and appreciated the research that went into this book!!
I'm a fast reader and I like to listen to audio books a little faster than normal so I was able to listen in no time at all. Kept my interest til the end.
Can't wait to apply the principles that worked for the author.
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!
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.
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)!
It's a relatively quick listen for all of the gold it contains. Do yourself the BEST favor! Grab it!
