I am always looking for easy ways to keep on track with my eating.
I am always looking for easy ways to keep on track with my eating. This may be a bit neurotic, though control freaks do well at weight loss, but a food scale is a great way to keep track of what you're eating.
The Salter Nutri-Weigh Nutritional Food Scale ($99.99) is a computerized food scale that allows you to record daily food intake and set dietary goals plus review your progress. The scale analyzes the nutritional content of food by portion size by calculating calories, protein, carbohydrates, total sugars, total fat, fiber, sodium, cholesterol, net carbohydrates and the glycemic index of your food. The database stores nutritional values for over 1,440 foods and liquids and memorizes an additional 100 food/recipes of your choice. The scale has a two-user memory, plus an add and weigh feature, so you and your husband (or roomie) can track your food together. All you have to do is weigh the food. Pretty cool, eh?
