i use both. for my meats i use a scale, because my meat portion needs to be exact on my plan. for my veggies i need to eat a min. of one cup of veggies so i don't worry if i go over a cup a little as i'm allowed as many veggies as i want as long as i get in 1 cup worth. for my carbs i just measure out 1/2 cup cooked rice, 1/2 cup potatoes, oatmeal etc. works for me.
