I know that there are a million "diets" out there. I've always been on the pudgy side, but I haven't ever tried any of the diets since most of them seem like I'd have to give up a lot of the things I love. This summer I decided to try something else, counting calories. I'm happy to report that it's actually working very well for me. Instead of giving up things I love, I'm simply more aware of what I'm eating and I just have less.
As I started keeping track of my food intake, I would spend a lot of time trying to be as accurate as possible. Reading food labels and researching calories on the Internet was taking a lot of time after every meal. While I think it was worth it, I really wanted a more efficient way of tracking my food. So, I started looking at food scales. I have now been using the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Scale for the last several weeks and I couldn't be happier with it.
Instead of spending so much time trying to accurately use measuring cups or spoons and looking up foods online, I simply record the weight of my food and use the included guide to calculate the calories. It now only takes me a few minutes to record my food after a meal and I'm more confident that the calories I record are more accurate.
The scale is very easy to use. There's a button that resets the scale, allowing multiple ingredients or items to be easily weighed. Then, there's a button that changes the units. I like to keep mine in grams, but you can use oz, lbs, and kg also. It weighs up to 11 lbs, which is great when using the scale for full recipes.
I know there are a lot of scales out there, but I highly recommend this one for ease of use and accuracy. I now consider it the most useful tool I have for my diet.
