Calorie Counting Scale
 
Just startin to think ahead to when I'll be cutting in January. I think I'm gonna go hardcore this year and get one of those scales that knows the caloric value of all the foods. Where do I get one of these? Anyone used one? Reccomendations?

There is a couple on ebay I saw but I thought I'd ask here first. Lots of pps here that seem to know what they're talkin about.

Thanks for you time,

IronWorker

Once the one I have now craps out on me, I'm probably gonna pick up this one.

I've only seen it at Fry's Electronics. But then again, I don't look at stuff like that at other stores :biglaugh:

If you do a Google search for "Weigh Of Life 3084 Digital Food Scale" you'll come up with a few more places where you can find it.

Why not try something like fitday?

Thanks IK, I knew you'd probably know where to get one.

Slayer, I'm not following. Sorry. lol

Fitday is a free online tool you can use to calculate exactly how many calories you consume on a daily basis and you get a nutrient breakdown. Measurements are not as accurate but pretty damn close.



It is also available as a application.

I second fitday.com. You input your foods - portions, cooking style, etc. - and it gives you cal/macro totals for your day. Then input your activities and it gives you total cal output for the day. I use it meticulously for wrestling, it's good stuff.

I prefer http://www.nutritiondata.com/ over fitday. Much easier to use (ie, less time consuming) and better accuracy with portion amounts.

Well those are pretty sweet tools as well...however, seeing as I really don't have any way of accurately measuring anything here now I think the scale would be the best way to do it. Besides, it'd be neat to play around with. lol

That's my whole reasoning behind wanting to get that scale I posted the link to :biglaugh: I already know all the macros for weights. I just think it'd be fun to play with all the buttons and settings :D
