Anyway, this book has both, and it is very user friendly. There is very little filler like other journals have, like "How did you feel today?" or huge diagrams that mean nothing - like the weird pyramid that takes up a whole page every day in the Mayo Clinic Diet journal.
The only reason that I gave this item four stars instead of five, is that I wish there was a weekly meal planner page every 7 days, like the Mayo Clinic Diet journal. In most ways, this journal is better, but being able to plot out my meals for the week ahead of time really keeps me on track.
I also wish there was a weight tracker graph, but there are enough blank pages that I just drew one myself.
But, I guess I should elaborate more. The book itself is wonderful, it had enough room to write down what you need to. The layout is appropriate and offers a lot of space to write, and as someone who is very particular when it comes to tracking, this book exceeded my expectations. The tough exterior is also appropriate in terms of durability, as again, I like to keep things neat and looking tidy (so no wrinkled pages, bent covers, etc). We have the spiral bound option and found that this was also durable and posed no problems as sometimes spiral notebooks can (spiral coming unbound, sticking out, etc).
However, we are a society that is based on technology. We have our smart phones at our fingertips and a wide variety of apps to do whatever it is that needs to be done, tracked, or monitored. As I mentioned above, our desire to write things down and the excitement surrounding it was short lived. We thought that the ability to write things down was going to make us more accountable, forcing us to pay attention to what we were eating, but the opposite actually occurred. Sometimes we would hold off until the end of the day to write down our food intake and our exercises. With a family of 6 (at that time), sometimes there just wasn't time for that and we skipped our tracking entirely.
If you are dedicated to writing things down, and I mean truly dedicated to this cause, then this journal may be for you.Read more ›
It also has a little blurb about realistic goal setting and helps you re-assess your goals throughout the process.
Just writing down what I'm eating and seeing how the calories add up compared to my ideal daily intake (regardless of the book itself) is really helpful in making me more accountable for the little things that I would, normally, let slide. The book just helps because you can have it all bound together and it has some quick reference sections.
In all, I recommend it. You could do the exact same thing on a pad of paper but this just helps keep everything more organized and adds some ease.
