The past few months I have spent a lot of time researching how to have a healthy relationship with food. I learned that counting calories, portion control, and even weighing out food portions can be very beneficial when trying to re-train your mind for healthier eating habits. So naturally, when I received the Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale from EatSmart Products for review, I was thrilled. This is JUST what I needed to give me a more realistic way to take control of my eating habits. As a matter of fact, I now have more control over my food than it ever had over me! Learning what proper portions look like is a bit of a wake up call. Most of the time, what we eat is NOT truly one serving. Take cheese, for example: One serving of cheese is about the size of a 9V battery. Chicken and meats? The size of a deck of playing cards. Pasta? The size of a baseball. To the eye, these are not "normal" portions, but trust me, they are proper portions.
With my Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale and the companion book, "Calorie Factors", I am making smarter eating decisions every single day. I can fully take control over what I am putting into my body, and this helps keep those pesky pounds at bay. This scale is pretty darn amazing, if you ask me, and has acted as a lifeline for me as I continue to re-train my brain (and my eyeballs) on how to eat to maintain a healthy weight.
Here are some of the awesome features of the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale:
- Compact Design and Easy Two-Button Operation
- Tare Feature; Subtract the weight of any plate or container
- 4 Measurement Modes: Grams / Ounces / Kilograms / Pounds
- Max Weight: 11 pounds / 5 kilograms
- Graduation: .05 oz / 1 gram
- 3 minute Auto-Turnoff
- Includes 2 AAA batteries
This scale is lightweight, compact, and very easy to use. You can even switch between standard US measurements and the metric system! I just stick with ounces, since I am an American and this is what makes sense to me. You just place the food on the scale itself or in a dish and you can easily and accurately weigh out your perfect servings. The scale is also very easy to clean and disinfect. I just wipe mine off with a disinfecting wipe and I'm good to go!
Take a look! Here I have weighed out .7 oz of sharp white cheddar. Cheese is one of my guilty pleasures, and with this scale, I am able to keep my portion sizes under control:
