Thanks for the great article! :) Report
My hubby just bought me my first digital food scale. I really like the upgrade from my old "postal" style scale. Report
Using a scale makes sense and has been recommended for decades, Report
Yes we use a scale all the time. It has helped me to know what a portion size looks like when we are out and do not have a way to weigh. Report

I put my plastic container on the scale before I zero it. It is easier than doing the math. Report
Thanks. I wasn't sure if I should weigh food before or after cooking. This cleared it up. Need to be using my digital scale more. Report
The scale keeps me accountable to myself and committed to my goals. Report
The Food Scale is the Nuclear Weapon of Weigh Loss, First time I used one I found out that my 28 gram serving of Potato Chips was actually 112 grams, Report
I have the nutri-trak mini digital and like it because it gives me weight, calories, proteins, carbs, fats, sugar and sodium numbers. One drawback is that you have to look up the food you're weighing and enter a number in order to get the measurements. It's programmable, though, so if you don't find your food in the pre-programmed list, you can add it. One handy thing is you can set a container on the scale and weigh it, then zero it out and add your food to the container and you get only the weight of your food. A good scale is a necessity in my kitchen! Report

My scale is the tool I use most in the kitchen. And you don't have to figure out the difference in the weight of a container or cup, empty or when filled. Place the container on the scale, and "zero" it out before adding the food. The weight will reflect only the food. A scale is always more accurate than a spoon or cup measure, which is why it's recommended in baking. Report

My food stale is easily one of the #1 tools in my successful weight loss journey. Moderation and portion control has created a lifestyle I can use to live, not just to lose. Report
I use a food scale for almost everything, and I weigh and record in grams rather than ounces because it’s more specific. I keep scratch paper on the counter and jot down all the weights while I’m preparing the meal, then While it’s cooking or after I’ve eaten I enter it into the food tracker. Very helpful when making recipes as well. Report
