I’m always trying to control the number of calories I consume each day, no matter if I want to maintain or lose weigh. I need to know how much I’m eating, because I’m a gourmand and some times I overeat.
There are many good calorie databases on line, but the problem is that there are too many steps to take before you actually know how much you’re eating:
- Weight each ingredient
- Log in to a database to check the calories for your ingredients
- Sum up the nutritional information
- Keep a (written) track of everything you eat.
I recently came across Kitrics Digital Nutrition Scale that could make things a little bit easier. Both a scale and a calculator, it calculates portion weight, and displays all the information in the way you’re used to seeing it on food packaging labels.
Kitrics Nutrition Scale features
- A scale and a calculator – all in one
- Calculates portion weight
- Displays the information in the standard food packaging labels format
- Breakdown of calories, calories from fat, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, sugars, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium
- Contains a list of nearly 1000 common foods
- Displays the nutritional information for the weighed item
- 99 customizable food entries
- Calculates the total of your daily nutritional intake
- Weighs in grams and ounces
- Maximum weight: 72 oz/2 kg
- High precision: +/- .05 oz/1 g
Bottom line: I think you’ll find this diet gadget a very useful item in your kitchen. A real eye opener on how many calorie you have been eating.
