First steps: download Fitness Pal app. Buy a digital food scale. And if you can, buy a big water bottle and a Fitbit.

More detailed version:

  • download My Fitness Pal. Log everything you eat, even the bites and licks of things. Use measuring cups and spoons and a food scale like this cheap one from amazon. Look at the side of the box of whatever your eating and try to eat the suggested serving size. Portion control, which was my biggest downfall before I started measuring! And literally log everything, I was making my children peanut butter sandwiches and licked the leftovers off the knife and decided to log it ... 70 calories! Anything that you put in your mouth, log. Follow the calories Fitness Pal gives you to eat. Allow yourself a cheat meal once a week. Notice how I said cheat meal, not day. This was my downfall in the beginning, I would have a day of high calories then spend 3 days getting back on track, which ended up slowing my overall loss. With this said, if you are on track but get a bag of chips from the gas station and eat it, your day isn't ruined. Just start eating good immediately. Don't let one item of food dictate that your day is "ruined".

  • only liquids I drink are water, and sometimes milk. This was hard, I was a Pepsi freak. But when you are counting calories, all those wasted calories on Pepsi that I could of had food instead made it easier to just drink water. Try to drink 2L a day. It's hard, but soon it gets easier. Buy a big water bottle and visually seeing the water get down helps. Set goals for your water consumption like by noon to have half the bottle empty.

  • for exercise, start slow. Walk down the block and back. Then make it 2 blocks. Then 3. Increase gradually over many weeks. You need to take care of your joints. Lots of people suggest swimming but if you're not comfortable with a pool, just walk the block. You don't need to be a gym rat. I do not go to the gym. I just go for half an hour walks. I found buying a FitBit really helped me get to 10,000 steps a day. In the beginning it was so surprising to see how I was hardly getting any steps! It's almost like a game to hit the 10k steps. I still have many days I don't, but now I am getting closer!

    Just remember this is a 1lbs journey at a time. I would get discouraged easily because it felt like the finish line was so far away. But as the weeks pass, it gets easier and easier and the lbs loss add up and before you know it you will have lost a substantial amount of weight! You CAN do this, and you will!

Any cheap kitchen scale will work for smaller items, I would get one that's actually useful for you other than just for gear (baking, coffee, etc).

Here are two decent scales that I would grab (I have the hook scale, and a different kitchen scale):

u/rharmelink · 10 pointsr/keto

My cues for eating are definitely less pronounced. But not stopping -- whatever is put in front of me, I could probably eat it all. Even at Thanksgivings, my stomach would be stuffed and bloated, but my mind would still tell me I was hungry.

The Amazon kitchen scale I bought is a very useful tool. It keeps me from getting my portion sizes too large. And it's a much easier way to put together a recipe -- just add ingredients by grams instead of measuring each with teaspoons, tablespoons, measuring cups, etc.

I live in a retirement community and get breakfast plus one other meal. Everything is brought home instead of eaten in the dining room, because I often need to rinse off meats and measure out servings. For example, at breakfast, I always get an "everything" omelet. It can weigh between 6 and 20 ounces. The bigger ones get cut in half (or I'd eat all of it one sitting). :)

When I have my Halo Top ice cream, I dish it into a four ounce serving cup. When I'm done with it, I'm not looking for more. But if I were eating it out of the pint-size container, that would be my serving size. Doesn't keep me from using my finger to get every drop of ice cream out of that four ounce cup.

As Clint Eastwood's Harry Callahan said, "A man's got to know his limitations".

I was just not able to manage them well before Keto.

u/24_7lit · 8 pointsr/gainit

alright duder im about to change your life rn.

first off- dont worry about BMI. BMI is BS. Lebron james has an overweight - obese BMI at 6'8 250lbs and he probably hast the most elite human body on earth.

second - look at the bright side. you have done this before. that weight will come back twice as fast.

another bright side - you are probably lean as fuck. you will pack on muscle so much easier than other people.

another bright side - youre only 19!!! You know what i would give to be a teenager again and get those teen gains??

lastly - make this protein shake twice a day -

8 oz milk (1% is 100 calories whole is 150 calories)

1 scoop protein powder (MP brand is 100 calories, O.N. brand is 120 calories)

1 tbsp olive oil (120 calories and you can not taste it at all in the shake)

32g peanut butter (190 calories) (weigh one spoon, get the tare (zero out the scale with the spoon on it) put 32 grams of P.B. on it (30-34 is OKAY) then use another spoon to get the PB off)

this shake is 500+ calories and tastes great. only about 10oz of thick shake so you can put it down easy. pretty cheap as well. and if you want more calories you can buy whole milk or add more PB or olive oil

buy this food scale start tracking calories. Im guessing you already know how to do this though...

u/Groty · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Great suggestions here, but I feel like one thing is missing.

Learn portion control! Use an app like MyFitnessPal Calorie Counter(Free Version). If you can swing it, get a scale. Amazon Basics $11.99

This will definitely help both your budgeting and your waistline. :) It has done that for me!

And practice boning a chicken, it saves a lot of money and it's lean protein. Use the bones for stock to make sauces, gravy, and soups.

u/themadscribe · 5 pointsr/Ultralight

There was a BPL thread on this topic a few days ago.




u/robdob · 5 pointsr/fatlogic

You don't have to spend that much for good coffee.

You can get a pour over dripper for $12 on Amazon

100 filters for $6

Electric kettle for $12

Manual coffee grinder for $10

Digital scale for $10

That's $50 for gear, (you can probably pick up some of that even cheaper if you look around) and then you can spend what you want on beans. I'm really into Stumptown coffee right now, which is $18 for 12oz. but you can definitely go a little cheaper or a lot more expensive depending on your tastes.

You can spend as much as you want making coffee, but I haven't noticed a discernible difference between coffee from that setup and coffee from a $500ish setup. A large part of what makes a cup of pour over good is the skill level of the person pouring it, and there's no reason to spend more than $75-$100 on gear until you reach a point where you know for sure your bottleneck is your equipment. I've been making my own coffee this way (as well as french press and espresso) for a few years and I still don't feel like I need to upgrade.

EDIT: Ignore the scale I linked, refer to /u/throwswithfats comment below instead.

u/spackattak · 4 pointsr/keto

Maybe I'm the weirdo, but if Amazon sells something I loathe purchasing it anywhere else.

This scale is 11.99 with free prime shipping, so it is 1 dollar more expensive (if you include shipping) than the scale you posted, and I know Amazon will take back the scale for any reason whatsoever if I asked em' to.

u/dontakelife4granted · 3 pointsr/keto

Macros should be measured by grams. That means a scale. I found one on Amazon for $10 ---->
It would be worth saving up the $10 because without it you are only guessing. It might work, but it will probably leave you more frustrated than anything else when you hit stalls. Good luck to you! EDIT: What about hitting up a few thrift stores? Maybe, just maybe, they'll have a scale there with your name on it. :)

u/supersciteach · 3 pointsr/weddingplanning

Most of our gifts were replacements or upgrades of things we already owned. A really cheap and awesome gift we got was this stainless steel scraper, which makes it so much easier to transfer food from a cutting board to a pot/pan. We also got a matching set of this luggage belt with a TSA lock--I actually gifted one to my husband years ago, but we used this as an opportunity to replace his now worn-down belt. We also replaced our kitchen scale with this Amazon Basics one, which works really well. Another Amazon Basics item we received was this paper shredder, which is a kickass workhorse of a machine.
One of the first gifts we got was a Corelle dish set that I LOVE--it's so much lighter and more durable than the stoneware set we were using. We also replaced our silverware set with an Oneida set that we both picked out, which was a very sweet and meaningful experience. We already have a nice Oneida silverware set, but it belonged to my husband's late mother, and he wanted to retire it so it wouldn't take any more wear & tear.
Those are all gifts that were my hands-down favorite things we received. We were also able to buy two expensive items off our registry thanks to Amazon's completion discount. We purchased a Sonos soundbar and a Miele vacuum that were absolutely worth every penny we spent on them!

Buy one! They're so affordable, especially on sites like Amazon:

u/fluffstermcmuffin · 3 pointsr/loseit

I have the Amazon Basics scale. It's been very reliable, and costs $9.99. It comes with a battery which has been running without issues for almost a year. Seems like an obvious choice.

u/gungadin · 3 pointsr/loseit

Do whatever works for you. One tip is that a digital food scale will radically change your calorie counting experience (for the better). I weigh nearly everything instead of measuring it. Easier, faster, and nearly always more accurate than measuring. Here's a popular scale for $10:

u/SideburnsOfDoom · 3 pointsr/Breadit

> you measure your water in grams?

Yep, why wouldn't you? Kitchen scales are accurate and cheap - they start at $10

For some ingredients (e.g. flour) weight is just more consistent than volume, and for some (e.g. honey or oil) pouring by weight into the mixing bowl is a lot less hassle and gunk than filling a measuring jug and then pouring that out.

u/sporkinatorus · 2 pointsr/myog

Grab a kitchen scale, perfect for this kind of stuff and its good to have a kitchen scale anyway.

Amazon has a cheapie that the reviews say is decent enough here

u/pidgeycandies · 2 pointsr/keto

Luckily we can have heavy whipping cream, and that creaminess is really wonderful in coffee. Assuming you have the calories for it.

There's other alternatives to sweets too, besides just using splenda there is also a brand called Walden Farms that makes very low/no calories, carbs, or sugar products. They have a marshmallow fluff and a caramel, it wouldn't suprise me if they have something chocolatey as well. I find them at Sprouts.

I do have a food scale! This one.

u/fernly · 2 pointsr/soylent

The bottled product was called 2.0 when first released but with the advent of the various flavors, they seem to have dropped the numerical label on it. The powder is v1.8; in a recent AMA, they pretty strongly hinted a v1.9 was in the works, probably with added flavors.

The front of the bag makes clear that 1 bag == 2000cal. The back label spells out the nutrition details for a "meal" of 400cal == 87g.

For prep, simplest is to mix one bag in the official 2L pitcher, put in the fridge overnight, drink as required. You probably don't want all 2000cal in one day (if you are having breakfast elsewhere) so there would be some left over. Just pour it into a blender bottle and refrigerate. It keeps for several days.

Or if you want to mix a specific number of calories (e.g. 1300) then all you need is an inexpensive digital scale (similar available at walmart, target, etc). Put the pitcher with some water on the scale, zero it, then scoop in exactly how many grams you need for however many calories you want available for the next day.

u/HermionesBook · 2 pointsr/loseit

not a dumb question at all, i didn't even know it was a thing until i found this sub. this is a food scale:

you use it to measure your food so that you can input it into MFP to count calories. lets say the packaging says 1 serving size of strawberries is 30 calories and next to that it says (100g). you put a bowl on the food scale, press a "TARE" function which takes away the weight of the bowl, and you put enough strawberries on the scale so that it reaches 100g. you just got the serving size. we recommend weighing raw meat as well, like raw chicken, before cooking it. the packaging may say 4oz is 140 calories, but when you weigh one of the chicken breasts the actual chicken breast ends up being actually 8oz so you're eating double and probably ruining your deficit. cooked chicken also weighs differently than raw chicken so it can change the calorie count if you're weighing the cooked chicken and not using the right MFP entries for it.

it's helpful because of how accurate it is. a lot of people weigh with measuring cups and spoons. these are wildly inaccurate because they're all made differently. a lot of people that come here with "why am i not losing weight?" posts usually aren't using a food scale. it takes a lot of the guessing work out of counting calories.

hopefully that helps. if you have any more questions feel free to ask! :) /r/loseit is really big on using food scales. i bought mine just to measure cheese every now and then and now i use it for everything that i eat.

u/dante437 · 2 pointsr/loseit

I bought an Amazon Kitchen Scale and it's been a true lifesaver. For $10, you can't beat it. I use it for everything from portioning meats to weighing my Cheerios in the morning.

u/BurningMyFat · 2 pointsr/loseit

Yes, didn't realize how much I was overeating until I got one. I bought this one at Amazon for $9.99 and it switches between ounces, grams which is helpful with MFP.

u/VastInquiry · 2 pointsr/snakes

I got this one for my snakes, it's good because if you put the bin on top of it before you turn it on, it'll start at 0 grams. I just have a small tub I use when I take them to the vet so I use that to put on the scale.

u/SBboundBRONCOS · 1 pointr/Cooking

ive been using the amazon basics one for over a year and its held up well and is like $10 or something. If you decide on a different one make sure the buttons or touch pads arent built into the actual scale, it is nothing but a headache trying to tare it and the touch buttons usually suck.

u/Ruzihm · 1 pointr/teamreindeer

this one works for me.

u/fastertoday · 1 pointr/soylent

As others have said, the bag is still 2000 calories so if you mix an entire bag at a time, nothing has changed.

if you mix it as individual meals (which is what I do) and if you are anal about exact measurements, then get a scale. I own amazon's store-brand scale and it works great for measuring single servings. Its about $10.

u/Sonicjosh · 1 pointr/Cooking

I got this Amazon Basics one a while back and it's done great for me.

Before this I had one where the buttons were just spots you touched on the weigh surface, sometimes pressing them would cause the whole scale to lift up, you also had to flip it over switch between oz and g, I hated it, it eventually died as I was about to give it away. Unless you needs something super precise I don't see why the amazon basics one wouldn't do well, I use it for measuring coffee and for baking.

u/apachexmd · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

I have my spool sitting on a 5 dollar lazy Susan which is on top of a 10 dollar digital scale.

Works good except you just have to lift the spool off the scale for a second to tare it.

u/wezzz · 1 pointr/ketogains
  1. Calculate your macros + TDEE
  2. Eat your macros (per day)
  3. If still unsure, buy a food scale for like $10

Download Myfitnesspal, buy a food scale, COUNT YOUR CALORIES - literally cannot stress this enough.

Losing weight is incredibly simple - you just have to eat fewer calories than your body uses, and it will make up for the deficit by burning fat. It takes discipline to do this, but it's not conceptually difficult. You don't have to workout if you don't want to, just eat less. Good luck.

Edit: Also, don't tell people IRL that you're losing weight. Don't give yourself any satisfaction of telling them - that can trick your mind into thinking you're doing better than you are. Let the results speak for themselves.

u/FunkeeSapien · 0 pointsr/keto

Hey, I made this calculator and am sorry to hear you aren't making the progress you'd like to see. It can be extremely frustrating trying to find the motivation when you aren't seeing the results.

Setting activity at sedentary will definitely work since it won't take your exercise calories into account however keep in mind you will be at a greater deficit than normal.

Instead what I would suggest is to take a closer look at the foods you are eating since most people never bother checking how many calories are in the foods they eat. Generally people don't need to do this but if you are stalling it's pretty helpful.

I did a quick mockup of the foods you listed and granted I don't have exact amounts but from those items and average portions I'm already getting higher numbers. Take a look here.

Looks like the optional protein shakes could be putting you over (assuming you use milk not water). Also, if you are adding any amount of oil/butter to your cooking that counts too!

So here's what I would do. If you haven't already then get everything down in a spreadsheet, copy calories off your food labels, and measure out all your portions using a food scale.

You don't have to do this forever but until you figure out which foods are holding you back you should keep at it. Good luck!

u/dopnyc · 0 pointsr/Pizza

> I don't actually have a kitchen scale

There's your problem. You absolutely cannot eyeball ingredients when you're making pizza. If you're going to have any kind of hope in making a consistent dough, you're going to need a scale.

I took a look at Amazon, and this one looks pretty solid:

It's kind of nice to have a detachable readout for working with wide bowls and pans, but, for the price, this is a winner, imo.

There's also this one on ebay:

It's shipped directly from China, which is probably a slight gamble, but the Amazon scales are all Chinese made as well.

This all being said, even with a scale, the recipe you're using has too much water- and way too little salt. Salt helps gluten develop, so the extremely low level of salt takes an already droopy dough and makes it even droopier.

Either fix the recipe (by adding less water and more salt) or use a better one. Also, the flour you're using isn't ideal. I think pillsbury is less expensive than King Arthur's bread flour, and also possibly a bit easier to find, but KABF has more protein and is better for pizza.
