A while back I ordered something from Amazon, which I nearly forgot about. But, it arrived a few days ago!
It is a “Nutrition Scale” from a company called “Greater Goods”. I had seen an advertisement for the scale a while back, and since my wife is in the States right now I asked her to order one for me.
Basically, you use this scale to weigh the food that you are going to eat. There is a booklet that has hundreds (thousands?) of foods listed in it, which you get a code number from the book and enter that into the scale, and an entire nutritional chart comes up for you to tell you what the makeup of the food is. If you have a food that is not listed in the booklet, you can enter the nutritional information into the scale for future recall (and calculation of the data based on the weight of the food you will eat).
Have a look at the scale:
I have tried it out, and it is really cool for the food scale to calculate all of the macros (Fat%, Protein%, and Carbohydrate%) for me, based on the weight of the food, and what the food is.
After getting the scale, though, I realized.. “what am I going to measure?” I mean, I am mostly fasting right now, so I don’t get a chance to use the food scale very much at this point.
But, that is OK, I will be eating regularly in no time (I hope), and the scale will be really useful so that I can track my macros.
In the testing that I have done, the scale seems to work great!
I find that having cool little gadgets like this keep me interested in moving forward. It keeps things fun and interesting.
The scale is only $39.99 on Amazon, and I found that a small investment in a tool that I think will be useful to me.
