Digital scales are a must have
I just got a digital scale for weighing food. I really like it. It replaces an ancient, mechanical one (plus or minus about 1/2 pound). The first time I used it, it saved me 200 calories. Instead of weighing a potato, I would have just entered "one potato" into my food log. That would have been off by 50%.
Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
