A lot of diet journals are plain and boring, which makes it hard to get excited about journaling. The Diet Doodle Diary is different! It takes the same idea behind any other diet and fitness journal and makes it fun and interesting.
It’s a log book but it’s more casual than a lot of other kinds of diet and log books out there. There is room to list everything you ate that day but you’re not expected to log things like grams of fat or carbs. It’s perfect for someone who wants to keep track but not be overly obsessive. If you’re into mindful eating rather than calorie counting this is perfect for making sure you’re not going overboard.
A lot of diet journals are intimidating, especially if you’re new to journaling. When they look so in-depth and hardcore it can feel overwhelming. I love that this journal has the everyday dieter in mind instead of only hardcore fitness fanatics.
This Doodle Diary is also filled with tips from dieters just like us. They’re all real tips from real people and are a great help along the way.
The best part of this book is that each day you have a page for something fun. There’ll be funny anecdotes, tips, motivational quotes or an activity. You’ll get prompts to write and doodle.
If you’re worried about your privacy and don’t want other people to know what the book is you can reverse the book cover so it just looks like a pretty journal. I love that for taking it to work with me where I have to worry about nosey co-workers snooping in my business.
Books like this are only effective if you use them so being able to take it with you wherever you go is a must. The Diet Doodle Diary is small and portable enough to toss in your backpack, purse, or gym back so it’s easy to bring it with you and chart your meals throughout the day without the book weighing you down.
If you want a journal where you can track every little bit of info on what you’re eating and how many calories you’re burning then this isn’t the journal for you, but if you’re looking for a fun way to be more mindful of the way you eat and develop healthy habits that last for life, the Diet Doodle Diary is awesome.
