    who has a food scale


    Any opinions on which one is best? I'm in need of one rather quickly. I'll order online if I have to but I'd rather be able to grab one from a store.

    thanks

    I got a Salter 1450 Nutritional Computer thing myself. It is a lot more expensive than something that just weighs, but it also computes all the nutritional data, plus you can keep two profiles for running info throughout the day. I got mine for about $100, but it is seriously kickass. 1000 pre-programmed foods, with the ability to add another 100 unique ones, and the ability to sum up a meal (on anabolic diet, shakes sometimes have 5 ingredients, so it's nice to have one output of kCals/CHO/PRO/FAT instead of a list.

    Got that, and a logbook, and for the first time in my life I'm actually eating the right sized portions, lol.

    I like the log book approach myself. Make it really easy to see trends of weight gain/loss with which meals I had the day before.

    I can do all that on fit day. Nice and easy to access, and make entries.

    Keeping records is def. a plus in tracking progress though.

    Can you add your own nutritional info to fitday or is it all preprogrammed for foods? As you know the same foods differ in value between manufacturers.

    Add another happy customer of affordable scales... I have not a single complaint with the 5 dollar scale I use daily.

    Wal-mart or Target would typically be your best bet, but in the event that neither are local, I would assume that most supermarkets keep some in stock. If your in a pinch, then go with the $5 scales... you can always upgrade later for further precision.

    ya, you can add custom foods, or edit the foods they have in there to reflect a different brands macros, etc.

    I bought the cheapest one at Wal-Mart. Then it broke so I bought the next most expensive one and it broke. Then I bought the digital one. I've had it for 2 years. Works great.
