In today's video I will be talking to you about my favorite scale that I like to usefor weighing my food.
Welcome back to Shape It Up.
My name is Nicole and I am going to tell you about a scale that I use for weighing my food.
I don't think that you should have to weigh your food for the rest of your life and thatis definitely not my plan, and I hope it's not yours either, but weighing your food isa very good way to understand exactly what you are eating currently and what you needto do to get you to the results that you want to get to.
I also think it is a good way, especially if you really don't know what amount of foodyou are eating, it's good to get it in check (a reality check) check out and see exactlyhow much food you are actually eating or on the opposite end, a lot of people may notbe eating enough food.
I’m going to show you my favorite scale.
This is my favorite scale.
It is the OXO company.
My sister actually gave this to me as a gift and it was a very nice gift.
What I like about it is that it's not very big.
You can pull it out so when you have a plate or a larger item that you are going to puton top of it and it gives you space so you can actually read the display.
For instance, turn it on and there will be a countdown: three two one, and then you canadjust it to kilograms or you can adjust it to pounds.
Because I just picked it up it's not zeroing out but you can just hit zero and then itwill zero out to pounds.
If I wanted to weigh this avocado, I just put it on there and this avocado weighs almostnine ounces and for grams, you can switch it over and it's 246 grams.
If I were to put a plate on here, you can't see the scale anymore so it is nice that itjust pulls out and then you can adjust your plate on top of it and zero it out.
When I get ready to load my food on, I put my plate on and then I would put my avocadoon there and then you can just keep loading up the plate with different food items andyou can add up your food as you go.
You can just wash the top so it's easy to keep clean.
There are batteries that you need to replace every now and then but other than that (AAAbatteries) it is the perfect little scale.
The OXO scale - You can find it at Target, you can find it at Kohl's and I've seen iton Amazon.
It is by a company called Good Grips and you may have seen their other products as well.
I really like this scale because it has been very helpful for me as far as food logging.
If you have a scale that you like or if you have a product that you would like me to testout and give you my opinion on, feel free to comment below and let me know what youwould like to see.
Thank you so much for watching and if you like this video give it a thumbs up.
I will see you in the next Shape It Up video and remember to Get Fit, Be Fierce and HaveNo Limits.
