Sponsor Spotlight: EatSmart Precision Pro Kitchen Scale

In today's world portion control is a top priority to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. The only problem is "What is a portion?" If you have ever looked at the serving size of packaged food it usually tells you in grams or gives you an about this many pieces. I don't want to know "About how much I am eating". I want to know exactly how much a serving is. This measurement is not easy to figure out using your normal kitchen tools. In comes the EatSmart Precision Pro Kitchen Scale to help you easily figure out how much you should be eating.

At first thought I was intimidated by kitchen scales but they are simple to use to figure out your portions. The first step is to turn it on. The scale measures in grams, kilograms, ounces, and pounds.  Choose the measurement you need.  Then place your bowl or plate on top.  You will then hit the Tare button so you do not calculate the weight of your bowl or plate. Next place your food in the bowl just until it reads the right weight for a serving. 

If you are unsure of how many calories are in a piece of fruit then all you need to do is take a look at the Calorie Factors Book that comes with the scale. Here you can find almost any type of food that does not come with a nutrition label. The book gives you a simple formula to figure out the calorie count of the food.

This scale can be used to weigh a variety of things including postage. It can weigh up to 11 pounds.The scale is also compact which makes it easy to take with you if needed.
