Jumping on the "scale" train.

I have a cookbook/textbook called "The Food Lab" by J. Kenji Lopez. In it he has several people measure out flour by volume in order to make a pizza. None of them were the same by weight and there was some serious differences between them.

Baking relies a lot on proportions for ingredients and a scale is important to make the right measurements.

I have This one and it works great for measuring baking ingredients because of the bowl. But most will work as long as it measures in 1 gram increments.

Lesson here -- find the PERFECT spot to put your scale and DON'T move it. I was so frustrated with the $20 Walmart scales that I bought a Withings scale (totally a splurge, my husband thinks it's ridiculous but indulges me). Anyway, by the reviews I thought I'd be golden and get to avoid the all of the cheaper scale issues....

Nope. I moved the damn thing from the bedroom to bathroom and it weighed me TEN! pounds heavier. I had been weighing myself daily and losing quickly on whole30 so it was irksome to lose all of my weight loss badges.

I concur that you should get good tools. A tape measure is cheap, amazon has good food scales. I bought this one to replace a previous flat one I had: I like the bowl feature and it looks nice on the countertop. Weighing my food I feel is more accurate than most measuring. Logging on MFP has really helped me learn calorie counts. For instance a bun is around 120cals and the same as a lower cal turkey burger.. so I could have a turkey burger with bun or have 2 turkey burgers with lettuce. I go for lettuce wraps.

Essentially a quick release plate head will let you put more weight towards the front to offset the fact that the plate is built with more weight in the back. I use this on my plate.

I actually have a etekcity electronic food scale that ironically doubles as a scale for my camera equipment.

I bought this one a couple of weeks ago and so far have really been liking it. And I love that it already has a bowl with it!

You're very welcome.

I'll throw in something I made last night - a giant pot of soup. I was short on parsley so you might want to increase that if you make it. This is what I put in it, not including water. That'll give you four huge bowls that are mostly food, not broth. (Noodles are added at the very end. If you want more carbs in there, feel free to replace with spaghetti. It'll have more calories but still be low-cal.) Here's the basic nutrition info. One bowl (a quarter of that recipe) is 152 calories and gave me 40% of my daily nutrients! If you don't have a food scale, I highly recommend one. I have this one. You can plug recipes into cronometer. I just jot down my ingredients and their weight in grams when I'm prepping and I plug them in while the food is cooking.

Also, if you end up cutting carbs out (edit: what I mean is reducing carbs) with the calorie reduction, you can just reduce your bolus doses. This goes much more smoothly with a CGM and if you account for some wiggle room for when you need to bring up lows.

Best wishes to you!

I use this one for two years now. Works fine.

Food scale. My husband, who lost 80 lbs. a few years ago, swears by the food scale. When he moved in with me, we didn't have room in the kitchen for a food scale, so he got rid of it. Well, now we live in a place with tons of counter space, so he asked for a food scale for Christmas so he could break down the proteins we buy at Costco into equal parcels. I got him [this one]

It is GREAT! I weigh pretty much anything that doesn't have a scannable bar code (man, I love the bar code feature of LoseIt) or doesn't break serving sizes into discrete pieces. For instance, we had steaks last night, and I knew exactly how many ounces mine was. When I slice cheese off a block, I weigh it in ounces (or grams, if I'm feeling fancy). I've used the food scale long enough now that I can kind of eyeball certain common foods and know about how much equals an ounce, but unless I'm in a huge hurry, I usually still weigh it because I'm neurotic enough to want precision as much as possible.

When I'm eating out, I either try to eat at places that have nutritional info on their websites so I can have a fairly accurate measure of calories, or I eyeball it. Eyeballing it is easier now that I have a decent picture of what 2 oz. of cheese looks like or how big a 4 oz. portion of chicken is, thanks to the food scale.

It also gets easier once you've established some routine foods. I know that the egg I have for breakfast is going to be about 100 calories because I eat eggs a lot. I know that tuna salad for lunch (1/2 can water-packed tuna, 1 T olive oil mayo, 5 slices of spicy/sweet pickles - it's the same every time) is going to be 208 calories because I have that several times a week. The more standard a food is in your diet, and the better you're able to visualize how much food equals x number of ounces, the easier it is.

It's hard to get used to at first. I still don't trust myself to tare and add another ingredient to the scale so I mis en place everything in separate dishes like on cooking shows (which is a good idea anyhow).

What I've done is look at conversion charts and start by using imperial measurements as a scoop. So 250g is basically a heaping cup, etc. Now the metric is associated with a measurement I already can picture so it's quicker to get to the right amount by weighing.

It will also help if you get a scale that has a fairly large base. Ours came with a bowl and I really like it for medium amounts but it will also lift off and then you can tare out little ramekins or a large bowl on the remaining flat surface. We just got this one and so far it's worked great, especially considering the affordable price.

Edit: corrected conversion

I have an Etekcity and it’s great because it’s not flat. The weight is on the front so I can pretty much read it no matter how big the item I’m weighing. I had a flat one before this one and I hated it. Anything I put on it seemed to cover the readout.
