My Trusty Food Scale


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I bought an electric food scale with a good sized removable surface that is easy to wash. The scale stays on the kitchen counter, Instead of estimating I weigh my portions. This has really helped with eating the right serving size and getting an immediate visual of how much common foods weigh. Now when I eat out I have that image in my head and it keeps me on target.

    I really need to invest in one of these. I've been wanting to for years. Because I always overeat whenever something (like a bag of chips) says "Serving Size: 1 oz or About 15 chips"

If it says "about," what do they expect you to do? Aim low? Ha!
