Keep Track of Your Diet and Exercise Goals With Fitbook

If you're serious about getting in shape and eating right, documenting your plan of action and your daily progress is a great way to meet your goals. I found an easy way to keep track of all your stats — the fitbook ($20). It's 12-week fitness journal and food diary that's 5.5 square inches, so it's small enough to tuck in your purse or gym bag. It's made of 100 percent recycled paper, and comes with a little pen to jot down your info. It has neat little charts so you can see how much you've worked out, what you've eaten, your weekly weight, and your body fat percentage.

A fit and healthy lifestyle doesn't come easy to many people. It takes discipline and a lot of planning, so using a journal like this one is a great way to set yourself up for success. Plus research shows that those who write down their goals are 75 percent more likely to achieve them.

If your goals will take more than 12 weeks to accomplish, or you have some friends who want to get on the fitbook boat, you can purchase a set of four for $75. Since we're all pinching pennies, if you don't want to splurge on a fitbook then you can download my fitness and food journals for free.

I just ordered the 4 year pack and can't wait to get started. I prefer to do the paper/pen thing rather than online. I find it works better for me and I hate to be tied to some electronic device (phone/computer) all the time. I agree $20 is more than most food & exercise journals since most run around $15.00 at B&N or $10-$12 on Amazon. But these might just be worth it. I will have to post in a few months and let you all know how they are working for me.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Not that positive responses are wrong, but that the long anon posts are fishy. Plus, usually after the posts leave the first two pages, the comments die down, not pick up. No worries, I'm sure it's a great product to those that find exercise journals useful to them! As for myself, using an application on my iPod Touch works the best for me because I'm already carrying it around in my bag, it's small enough to fit in my purse, and straps on my arm at the gym, so it's one less thing that I have to carry. If there was a fitbook application that cost $10, I would absolutely be inclined to check it out.

I'm finding the tone of the comments on this post to be really interesting. The first half of the comments were short, generally from established Sugar users and more negative (in that they questioned the cost relative to the product). Then the creator posted a nice, informative comment. Then, all of a sudden, there is an influx of "anonymous" comments about how great this product is. Methinks someone who works at Fitbook is directing commenters to this post to pump up the product!

Okay, if this was just a jounal that cost $20 I might agree with some of the others comments. But it isn't. I have been using the Fitbook since February and have to tell you that it is GREAT! In the past, I have kept track of my meals using a regular journal...and yes... that is less expensive. But for me it wasn't effective. My journals just ended up having a list of foods that I ate and a note on whether or not I worked out that day - they were spotty and honestly weren't that helpful. Since I felt like my weight was getting out of hand, I started with a personal trainer who provided the FITBOOK as part of his training packages. Not only do I track my meals, the nutritional value and cardio logs, but my trainer uses the FITBOOK to capture our workouts. It helps keep track of the weights I am using on each machine so I can duplicate those work outs on my own. Additionally, my trainer uses the book to review my eating habits and provides me feedback on ways to improve my diet. I can look back and follow my measurements and see how I am tracking toward my goals. It is something that has been incorporated into my daily life. The FITBOOK costs $20 but that is for 3 months. That is less than 25 cents per day. Much less than I would spend on a coffee or a snack. Here is another suggestion for those who like the idea of the book but don't want to spend the money, ask your trainer or the gym if they offer this included with the membership. That makes the cost free for you!

I'm a busy working mom and I LOVE my fitbook! $20 is worth it to me. I don't have time [or want to make an excel sheet]. This is much more organized and has a goal oriented/motivational format that I love. Little fit tips at the bottom are great reminders. I tried iPhone apps and ended up back with my fitbook because the actual activity of writting everything down (meals, snacks & lattés) keeps me accountable. The strength training side is well organized and I love the rating system. It's also helped me set a weekly plan with a week workout plan so there is no thoughts about "what will I do today. I now use the iPhone apps along with my fitbook when I want to track calories. But I'm sticking with writting things down! I love being able to flip back the pages and see my progress, notes and doodles.

DeviousMuse - What app do you use? I have Lose It! on my iPod Touch and I love it. I have used it daily for the past three weeks, and I credit that 75% with my losing 2lbs per week so far. I'm curious if there are better ones out there.

I'm definitely into this book. $20 isn't much if it helps you keep your goals. Sure you can make a spreadsheet, but this is so much easier.

I would love to buy this, it seems really neatly laid out and would encourage me to stick to my goals better-when I write my own diary whenever I go wrong I just rip out the pages and start again!!!So I think this was good. Shame they don't appear to deliver outside of the US:(

i think it has a lot more things to keep track of rather than writing it yourself in a blank notebook. 20 is a little much but lhj10 will knock $2 off!

I like it because it breaks everything down, but I priced it. By the time you add shipping, it is over $25. Not worth it.

I like it! I think it clearly breaks down everything you should be focusing on. Not gonna lie, I'm bummed it's 20 bucks though. I say $10 and call it a deal.
