My Kitchen FOOD SCALE!!! WEIGH & MEASURE it is!!!!

I decided when I began this journey that I MUST be firm with myself & weigh & measure EVERY tiny morsel From experience I've discovered that I cannot get healthy based on what value I THINK a food has! I am religiously using the SP food calculator. As a result, I have NOT gone over my calories once!

    My food scale is a GREAT tool! It now sits right next to my bullet blender as a tool that gets used every single day.

    I agree all the way with you on this. I get teases by the family, because I will pull the scale out for everything along with the measuring cups and spoons.

    I agree! I took a fistful of walnuts pieces and thought I was eating 1 oz. When I weighed it, it was .5 oz. So this time, it was to my benefit to weigh. Other times I may find out I'm eating more than I thought.
