This will be the third food scale that I have. The first one that we bought years and years ago wasn’t digital. You can’t really see the exact measurement other than the line going on the number like the old scales that you would stand on. I prefer digital, it’s easier.
The second food scale that we have was actually given to me by a former friend. I don’t know what’s wrong with the scale, but you put batteries in, weigh something, put it away for a while, maybe a couple of hours or a couple of days? I don’t know. Anyway, the next time you go to weigh something, the batteries are dead. So that’s why I bought a new scale from Amazon for $15.
I like that the scale plugs into the wall and it only took 90 minutes to charge. I’ve been using it all day to weigh not only what I’ve been eating but also what I’ve been drinking. I am keeping track of all of my food on the Atkins app, and I want to make sure that I’m putting in the correct measurements of weight, because I want to know exactly how many calories I’m eating. I’ve been guessing all this time and apparently I was way off.
I mentioned that I was not only keeping track of what I’m eating, but also what I’m drinking. This thing has different units of measurements for food and drink. So like if you’re measuring how much water you’re drinking or how much creamer you’re adding to your coffee etc. It has grams, lbs and ounces, fluid ounces and milliliters. On the back you can switch between unit measurement preferences but I like that I can choose on the device itself.
Oh, this scale also came with a dough scraper, which I kind of get, I guess if you’re making bread, but I’m not going to, but you never know, I might decide to lol. Although I don’t think so because that has too many carbs.
So on Amazon, this is called NUTRI FIT rechargeable food scale. The title is actually longer than that, but you get the idea. The image at the top is a link to the listing on Amazon.
