Reviews for Calorie Counter Journal For Dummies:
"As a registered dietitian, I know numerous studies have found that journaling is a key to successful weight loss and maintenance. For those who have trouble getting started, this book may be just the key. A compact, soft-cover, spiral-bound book, it can easily fit into a purse, tote or briefcase so it's always handy to jot down everything you eat or drink. Introductory information in the first 64 pages explains how to calculate calorie needs, determine serving sizes, develop diet goals and use the journal. The remaining 190 pages provide a day/page to record meals and snacks, check off fluid and fruit/vegetable intake and log exercise. It's simple and easy to use and sure to make you more aware of what you are eating so you can take of unwanted pounds." Neva Cochran
"It is well documented that people who keep track of what they eat and drink are more successful at weight loss than those who do not. Sometimes it is hard just getting started. In the The Calorie Counter Journal for Dummies®, Rust and Raffetto present changing habits as a motivating journey to a healthier lifestyle for the average person as well as for the athlete who wants to improve their competitive edge. The section on goals determines where you are in terms of behavior change, visualizing what you want to achieve, setting SMART goals, and not just focusing on the scale as a measure of success. The journal itself has 24 weeks which allows you to easily stay focused and reflect upon your progress. Rosanne and Meri have successfully "made everything easier" as their cover says."
Marianne Schneider, RD, MS, LDN
"I have been looking for just this type of journal. I'm an active and fit person but find that I needed a simple, convenient way to put all of my goals and history together. This fits the bill perfectly and will have a place in my briefcase. Although I'm sure it will be a handy tool for anyone that wants to use the power of putting something down on paper to reinforce their goals and actions, it seems like a perfect tool for the amateur athlete hoping to advance their exercise efforts and support their weight targets." ~Bikerider

"I bought this handy little reference before my husband and I made a trip across country. We're normally health nuts, but on the road it becomes very difficult. The Calorie Counter For Dummies definitely helped us navigate the healthiest choices at the fast food and restaurant stops on our journey. It was fantastic to be able to make informed decisions about what to order at places you don't correlate with eating healthy..." Cali, Manchester, ME
