While a food scale will cost about $15 to 20; you can use regular measuring cups and spoons for most things. These would only cost a few dollars at most. In the food tracker many foods have an option of listing as: 1 cup 1/2 cup (.5 cup) 1/4 cup (.25 cup) 1/3 cup (.33 cup) and by teaspoons and tablespoons.
And your goal is to be eating within your SP calorie range; not below. Going too low in calorie intake---is not better.
