here is a link to the salter scales.....thye weight in grams and ounzes and are very accurate and don't cost an arm and a leg either....hope this helps

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Wow, thank you for the link to that blog. VERY informative. I agree with her. Having a scale that weighs in grams will be so helpful.

Hiya, I live in Ireland, and I too bought a Salter scale; reliable and not very expensive.

I read somewhere that the nutritional facts on many food items are off, leading people to take in up to several hundred calories a day more than they intend. I am looking for a simple scale that calculates in grams so I can see just how far off these nutritional facts are.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a digital scale for food? I would like one that does grams, ounces, etc. and that is easy to clean, preferrably with both battery and plug in capability.
