Portion control & EatSmart Food Scales – Review & Giveaway

My apologies for not getting this posted sooner – craziness has been afoot!  BUT!  The Winner is…

Portion control has always been an issue for me.  I love food… LOVE it…. but for so many years, I lived to eat… instead of eating to live.

but this past year, I’ve been really struggling to retrain my body to learn what portions are needed to fuel myself without overindulging.  Overindulging in even the healthiest of foods leaves me feeling full and bloated and does nothing to assist with my weight loss efforts.

Something that has helped more than anything is my EatSmart Precision Pro Kitchen Scale. This scale is small enough to sit on my kitchen counter without being in the way and accurate enough that I feel confident using it to measure out proper portions.

It sounds a little controlling though, doesn’t it?  measuring everything… weighing everything… For those who haven’t followed on my journey, you need to understand that I started in a very lost place.  I had no idea how to eat right… what to fuel my body with… I didn’t exercise… I had honestly forgotten what hungry was like.  Seriously.  In the beginning of my journey towards living a healthier life, I was told to “eat when I was hungry and stop when I was full”

While a great idea…

And something I truly believe in…

That meant nothing to me.

I had skipped so many meals that my body never knew when it was going to eat again.  When I did eat, it was usually empty calories and junk food and I would stop long after being full.  It was far from healthy.

Once I started using a scale, I was able to retrain my body to remember what my body needs as fuel.  To feed it healthier, more nutrient dense foods. and the EatSmart Kitchen scale took all the work and worry out of it.  I’ve never looked back.

The scale itself is easy to use.  Turn the scale on, place your plate or bowl on the platform and zero it out before measuring your serving size or ingredients.  That simple.

Clean up is a breeze as well.  Plus, the modern design fits in with almost any kitchen decor.
