I have been journaling my food for the past 7 years. In that time I have used 3 different brands of journal. I found that they all had great features but none had everything I would want in a journal.

Now that I have used The Ultimate Diet Log for almost 2 months, I can say that it has a lot of the features I love. It also has features that I have not used before (though I may eventually try them), such as an indication of hunger or fullness at each meal and an indication of how you are doing with your goals on a daily basis.

If, like me, you are used a journal that allows you to record data for a year, you should know that this is only a 26-week journal. It is as thick as (and perhaps even thicker than) the 52-week journals I've used, but it begins with 83 pages of text on how to use the log and how to focus on priority areas in your goals.

I've uploaded photos of actual log pages so you can see what each page includes. Each day is split into segments for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner. Each page has a (too small for me) box to record exercise and a daily wrap up. My favorite feature of the daily wrap up is "Success of the Day." I often use this space to give myself kudos when I made a meal at home when I really wanted to call for pizza or go out to eat, or when I have made a baby step toward a new habit. Most pages also include a food, nutrition or fitness tip or fact.

At the end of each week, there is a whole page for weekly wrap-up. This is a great place to reflect on your week and note what went well and what didn't, what insights you gained as a result, and how you plan to do it next week. Love this!

I am now in week 7 of using this journal and it has been a helpful handy tool. For a few weeks before that, I had been tracking my food intake online, but it was cumbersome to look up each food in the database, sift through the (sometimes irrelavant) results, each time I had a quick snack. I much prefer to quickly jot it down the old-fashioned way, on paper.
One of the neat features is that each day's log has 2 columns for tracking "areas of focus." You decide which things are important for you to track: is it overall calorie intake, or fiber, or fat, or servings of fruits and veggies? And there is a helpful section at the front of the journal to help in your initial assessment to set personal goals and areas of focus. I flipped through a number of journals on the shelf at Borders before selecting this one, and I am very happy with my choice.

I really do believe keeping a log helps you while dieting, but I've tried three or four other logs over the years, and I always quit after a couple weeks. Tracking all the info gets so tedious! But this log's five-day inventory has helped me figure out just what areas I need to focus on so I'm not wasting my time counting calories or fat grams or other things that just aren't relevant to the way I eat and my problem areas (I admit it: sugar intake and too much snacking since I'm home all day with the fridge). Plus, the log has just made me feel a lot less overwhelmed. Instead of completely overhauling my eating, I'm just focusing on a couple things. It's also helped me identify issues that I wasn't aware of -- fiber intake, for example. The layout is great -- really easy to use. And every page has a factoid that's always either entertaining or informative. A month into it, I feel like I've finally found the right fit with this diet log -- and my clothes are fitting a lot better, too!

In a market that is saturated with diet tips, tricks and journals The Ultimate Diet Log stands out. It is is easy to keep track of, fun to write in and easy to read.

I purchased UDL after flipping through each diet journal Barnes and Noble offered in the store. The UDL was the only one with flexibility in meal times, an exercise log and tons of pertinent information.

The Ultimate Diet Log is a good, standard, entry log for keeping track of what you eat daily. Ultimate? No, but it is practical. While I didn't want a pocket journal for food intake, I did want something easy to use and portable too. The journal's wire-bound spine caught on clothes and was cumbersome to keep up with. A plastic comb-style would probably be better since there are so many pages. Mine was ready for the trash by the time I got to the end of the journal. It does have wonderful research facts about food and the layout is straight-forward and clear. I was able to lose weight and see where I needed to improve in eating and workouts.

An item is only effective when used, and this log is the first one that I've filled out completely! It's small enough to sit unobtrusively on the counter. Lays flat because of the wire binding. There is an end of week report that you can fill out and it's very helpful in helping me understand what went well, what I can improve, and helps me to reset my goals for the next week. There is enough room to log what is eaten, and there are two columns to let you choose two daily focuses, like: carbs, calories, fullness, or whatever you want. I like that there is some blank space at the top and bottom of each page so I can write "water" and put checks for how many glasses I drink, at the bottom I write other no-calorie beverages that I drink as well, like diet pop, flavored water, and the like, so I can quickly see how much liquid I'm getting in each day. The reason I do this is so I can save the lines on the main page for the actual food I eat, if I had to write what I drank on it too, there wouldn't be room, at least for me because I drink a LOT. There are sections for breakfast, snacks, lunch, snacks, & dinner. There is a place for what time you're eating, and how hungry you are. It is so well-designed.

The thing that is so GREAT about this food log is that it is very user-friendly, and you can personalize it any way you want to. Mine is almost filled, and so I'll order another one soon. I've lost 35 pounds using it these last six months and it has helped to keep me focused on my daily and future weight-loss goals. I've looked at all the diet logs, and even made a few of my own, but I prefer to use this one. I highly recommend it!
