Carb counting scales


(hjelsand) #1

Hi All,

Am new to Juvenation and thought I'd try you out on this one!  My daughter has been DT1 for years and we've always used the scale in the kitchen but now I hear that there are inexpensive scales out there that will also give a carb count to the apple, pear or other "items" (that you can scroll a list and just push a button!).  In your opinion, what is the best, for cost, scale out there?  Oh, and where did you find these precious gems?!

you can find different scales with databases, like this one:  http://www.warehousedeals.com/EatSmart-Digital-Nutrition-Scale-Professional-Food/M/B0013IDHTO.htm

but I find that any old scale,  along with a current edition of the "Calorie King" book is the easiest and most inclusive way of doing it.  good luck.
