A kitchen scale is the best way to control portion size when you’re trying to shed a few pounds, but the Salter Nutri-Weigh & Go scale goes one step further for those who are seriously counting their calories. Besides the mass, the scale will also calculate the nutritional values of the food based on its weight including calories, protein, carbohydrates, total sugars, total fat, saturated fat, fibre, sodium, cholesterol, net carbohydrates, G.I value and percentage of calories from fat.
It has a database of over 1400 foods and a ‘word prompt’ feature for quickly finding the item you’re weighing. It will also keep track of your daily food intake for up to 7 days and has all the features you’d find in a regular food scale including aquatronic liquid measurement, add and weigh, metric/imperial conversion and auto or manual shut off.
It’s available from Scalesexpress.com for about $77.
