When starting a diet routine, its important to count calories, at least for a while until you get use to portion size. A scale is the best way to keep track of your food and calorie intake. I got my scale years ago and love it. It is simple to use and you can track ounces or grams. It's a great use for making up my lunch portions for the work week. I measure my turkey, carrots, chips, fruit etc, for the week, then put them in baggies and put them in the closet or fridge so all I have to do is grab a bag in the morning and go. Then I write on the bag how much is in it, so I can keep track of my calorie intake each day on my Spark People phone app.
You can find many scales at Bed Bath and Beyond (Use your discount coupon you can find online or in the mail!) or Walmart, which may be less expensive and is where I found mine.
