A scale that does justice to food

Regulate diet by weighing options first.

HealthTools

Next to dentists, scales are our worst enemies. Not the fish or music variety, but the kind that unfairly make us cut back on our sensible daily diet of Domino's and Krispy Kremes. Worse yet, they're getting more powerful all the time.

But most of them do their work after the fact, happy to just mock us without helping. What we really need is some intervention--such as a scale for the food, before we eat it. The EatSmart Nutritional Scale, for instance, "serves as a food guidance system to regulate calories, nutrients and portion size appropriate." Or, as Medgadget puts it, you can become "your own chow master."

Consider it a way to regulate your diet by literally weighing your options first. Because iit's definitely a better alternative to HAL or cat food .
