About Nutritional Scales
When you're serious about your diet, how much you eat is just as important as what you eat, and that's where nutritional scales come into play. Depending on the model, you can often enter the food to be weighed, weigh it, and get a reading on how many calories you are consuming if you eat that much of it. Nutritional scales have other dietary uses besides counting calories, too. If you want to be sure to eat the right amount of a source of vitamins, minerals, or protein, knowing how much of it you have is important. Some models, like the Taylor Glass Nutritional Scale, take the guesswork out of it by giving you the value of nutrients for foods in its database. Nutritional scales are frequently sold on eBay, often in brand new condition. Whether you're trying to eat well for good health, maximize your protein intake, or lose a few kilos, a nutritional scale can help you get enough of what you want to eat, and not too much of what you don't.
