Digital kitchen scale recommendations [R]

I've just done a deep dive into Amazon reviews and have had to back away. I'm hoping some of you here can help me with a few recommendations.

I have kitchen scales but they're the old fashioned kind with weights (yes, really) and are both a pain and kind of not fit for purpose for the amount of weighing I need to do to track food correctly. So I'm looking for a digital scale.

What I definitely want:

  • the ability to zero out so I don't have to remember to weigh bowls and plates and things
  • a reasonably small profile because I have a small kitchen and counter space is at a premium.
  • reasonably accurate even for tiny amounts

What would be nice:

  • batteries that can be changed without a screwdriver.
  • easy to read numbers because my eyes are old
  • if it's less than $50
  • if it comes in orange (just kidding)

I really like this scale I got at Amazon: Joseph Joseph 40071 TriScale Compact Folding Digital Kitchen Food Scale, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0091QO41U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_yZ82DbNHXF8W9

It zeros, you can change the measurements (grams, ounces, etc) and for me, the best is that it folds up. So I can keep it in a drawer and it takes up very little space.

Fatlogic in real life getting you down?

Is your family telling you you're looking too thin?

Are people at work bringing you donuts?

Did your beer drinking neighbor pat his belly and tell you "It's all muscle?"

If you hear one more thing about starvation mode will you scream?

Let it all out. We understand.

Did you get a portable one too? Like that one.

quote from Kate Moss; "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."

I like the quote, but I'm slightly wondering if she is talking about the 20-25 BMI range when talking about skinny?

Losing weight will literally kill her, so let’s embrase being 300 lbs! [R]

I have considered getting myself a portable food scale in the past, but there weren't any good options available at the time.

The idea is also to simply bake a flat-er or smaller cake.

we only eat out so it's harder to count I make sure to stay away from fried food

Hone your guesstimation sense and log everything. (A little over-estimation of food-calories at places might not hurt.)

To increase accuracy you could even take a scale with you.

Need an 'outside the box' idea for a Portable, yet Accurate weighing device. (Food scale alternative) [R]

Alright, so for a school project I am working on something that helps people track their food and calories in the most convenient way possible yet keep it most accurate (in terms of weight.)

The most common and agreed upon solution for getting weight is to have a food scale with you. The problem with it is that it's still a bulky item. Not something most people would prefer carrying around with themselves.

I am trying to figure out the most portable yet accurate and therefore most convenient alternative devices to be able to weigh items.

As of right now I have only been able to come up with something like the 'Apple Force Touch Trackpad' since it has the same technology used in scales, measuring strain to determine force.

Plus it's portable a.f.

Does anyone have any other ideas of something that can be used for the same purpose?

TL;DR - What besides an actual food scale can be used to accurately measure weight SOMEHOW, while being extremely portable and convenient?

Advice for a college student? [R]

So I’m going to study abroad at the US. Previously, I went through trial & error to reach where I am. I’ve been battling skinnyfat syndrome and am currently eating at about my maintenance which is around 2100 calories. Still making some decent gains, even if slightly. All is well I’d say as I cook my own food and am planning on going to a small deficit; also taking up a sport as a good hobby and activity.

However, the US college requires that I buy a meal plan as they have no kitchens available. This KINDA puts a dent in things since it’ll make it harder for me to track my calories. I do plan on measuring my weight often, though, as well as see if my clothes fit different. I just wanted to know if there were any tips I could get? Whether it was about how to measure the food, what to steer towards or away from, etc etc. Even things not food related. Much help would be appreciated!

Portable food scales are rather inexpensive. You can also go to Goodwill or some thrift shops to look for a mini fridge (or buy one a new one at walmart for ~$100). Depending on the school, they will allow you certain small appliances, and you can keep yogurt, cottage cheese, and any food you sneak out of the dining hall in a mini fridge. Also, move off campus as soon as you can lol I hated meal plans when I was in college. They are such a stupid waste of money. Best of luck.

How do measure how much you eat? [R]

I've been unsuccessful in losing weight for years mainly due to the fact that I can not properly document my calories consumed. I see often in guides where people say "oh just use my fitness app, write down everytheing etc." but don't talk about how to measure the amount of food you eat. Stuff like eating whole fruits such as apples and oranges are easy to track (just write 1) as well as prepackaged foods but what measuring how much rice , veggies and other misc items I eat that do not come in standardized containers.

My job has a lot of free food out in the open ranging from containers of peanuts, pretzels, jelly beans and such and when I go and try to log those In I get super confused as it asks for oz and serving sides and I just shrug my shoulders. How many oz is 3 gummy bears, or 4 chocolate pretzels? How about a handful of mixed nuts? Then there's eating out, how can I measure what two spoonfuls of rice are or 4 pieces of carrots and a 3 bites of a fish fillet? I don't exactly carry around a scale with me at all times so I can't exactly measure out the oz right there. What about drinks? I got a lot of non standardized glasses and I just fill them halfway when I drink milk and such so I have no idea how many oz Ive consumed

My house cooks food in bulk and I can't section off little daily means and instead pull from a giant plate of food to warm up. It's hard for me to weigh how much broccoli, sweet potatoes and chicken breasts I ate when its already prechopped and ready for me to heat it up.

I feel like I'm missing some key knowledge here and find it difficult to find guides for it as it always looks to me the guides are written for people with a level of base knowledge and understanding that far exceeds my own. Help in there area will be so greatful

You could give something like this a try, although I can't personally vouch for its accuracy or usability: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0091QO41U/. If you fold it up, people probably wouldn't even know it's a scale.

This might sound weird, but if you eat out a lot and want to keep an accurate log of your intake, having meals at fast food places might work for you. They tend to have comprehensive nutritional information either right on the menu (which is required by law at least in the US and Canada) or you can look it up on their web site. You might not be able to weigh the food yourself, but you can at least trust that the big chains have done their due diligence to comply with the law.

That's it, I'm buying a second kitchen scale to keep at work! [R]

Every Friday, my office workplace provides breakfast for us. Once and a while, we get fresh-made doughnuts from a local bakery. These doughnuts are delicious and MASSIVE. In the past, I'd usually have about 3 of these huge doughnuts throughout the day.

I've been buckling down on tracking again, so I decided to bring my kitchen scale to work today so I could get a proper calorie count for these doughnuts.

I weighed my normal favourite - the apple fritter - and it came up as 230g on my scale. I compared that weight to the Tim Hortons and Starbucks apple fritter entries on MFP and guess what.

One doughnut is between 730-800 calories!!!

I was blowing up to 2400 calories on doughnuts in one day! Plus my other normal meals! And my TDEE is only 1700!

Yikes.

So this morning I cut myself half an apple fritter and logged my 360 calorie indulgence.

I'm totally going to buy myself a second scale to keep at my desk.

Totally agree with this comment, your physical (and mental!) health is worth it! I'm a diabetic and this scale often comes up in our circle for restaurant outings (asking for an extra plate and moving carbs/food onto it)

I graduated last year, but I was in school while I was losing the bulk of my weight (F/22/5'6" SW: 172, GW: 120, CW: 107) and eating at the dining halls all the time. I got one of these scales and just weighed my food as I walked down the salad bar. It's subtle and small, and sometimes I went on off hours so that I could do it without others noticing. But then I kind of decided not to care if people noticed, and used it all the time.

I'd go back to my table with my friends and log it all in. No shame in this!!

Anybody know where to get this weird Ozeri food scale? [R]

I found this scale on the Ozeri website and it looks fucking sweet. Reverse image search only finds them on that site. I'm guessing it hasn't been released yet or something, but I want one.

Realistically I'll probably just get this one

It looks like it was made by the German design house Pro-Idee, but it looks like they aren't selling it anymore. This article (from 2009) has a link to the product page, but it seems to be dead.

But I did find another one that has a similar design, and gets decent reviews: Amazon link

i recently got a food scale and i already LOVE it because of the peace of mind it gives me. no more trying to estimate the amount of food or calories i've consumed in a day. i'm a pretty small person (5'2") and never realized how easy it is for me to eat much more than i really need every day. i'm still learning and it's a journey, but the past ~2 weeks i've felt leaner and like i have more energy.

however, i'm a college student and having meals with others can draw unwanted attention to my "diet." i've been taking my food scale to the dining hall with me--when i'm eating by myself it's very inconspicuous and i count without judgment. but is it just a bad idea to pull out a food scale when catching meals with friends?

today was the first time it happened, and my friend inquired as to if i was on a diet (i just said not a diet, but trying to 'maintain' even though i do want to lose a few lbs) and she proceeds to respond that i don't need to count vegetables or most fruits, i shouldn't be counting calories, i really only need to keep track of carbs if that is the case, etc. i know that, but like i said, it gives me peace of mind, and just because i am little doesn't mean i shouldn't keep track of what's going in vs. out. i expect in the future as well, i will run into similar situations. i don't want to appear obsessive with my diet, but counting is a new habit i feel helps me be healthier, worry less, and it is also something i enjoy.

i'm sure many of you have been in similar situations--people trying to tell you that what you are doing is unnecessary because you are small people, or just baffled you would go to such extents. so do you avoid counting calories around others and just estimate, or do it without shame? is there anything in particular you say that seems to be effective?

I know it does sound excessive to bring the scale with you but at one point when I was in college I felt the exact same way. I wish I would have had one to bring with me, or even measuring cups. My suggestion, besides learning to visualize how much is a cup/half cup etc, is to get a more discrete scale. Something like this. Then when your by yourself you can measure how much your school's plates and bowls weigh to be able to deduct that from the total in the future. I know it might not help if your trying to measure each ingredient on it's own and you've already made yourself a mixed plate, but say you get a bowl of broccoli or a plate full of chicken, it could be helpful.

Keeping it health, but not losing weight. [R]

This is the one I have. Folds up so I can stick it in a bag and carry with me. It will also zero out with a plate or anything else on it.
