EatSmart - Holiday Gift Guide Review and Giveaway


I posted the other day about seeing myself in a picture and not even recognizing that it was me. I did so well with losing weight during the summer and keeping it off, but have gained a few pounds back since camping season's been over. I'm not proud of letting myself go again but am determined to get back on track.


EatSmart helps people keep track of calories and weight management with their digital scales. The EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale, which I received, serves as a food guidance system to regulate calories, nutrients, and portion size appropriate for your lifestyle.

After seeing the photo of myself (thanks hubby for the wakeup call) I decided not to wait until making a New Year's resolution to lose weight and keep it off. I decided the time is now. I've been using the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale regularly and it keeps me motivated.

The scale is just the right size and doesn't take up much counter space. Keeping it out in the open is a reminder of food portion and control. With the four measurement modes, I am able to weigh my food and see how much is the right recommended amount. The scale takes regular batteries and gives a digital display of measurement. It surprisingly, for such a compact scale, weighs food and other items up to 11 pounds. The red color of the scale matches my kitchen decor, which is an unnecessary but sweet bonus. Included with the scale is a Calorie-Factor Food Booklet that helps with portion control and calorie counting. I've found that some foods I regularly eat are not the best choices and there are alternatives. I am in the right frame of mind to lose weight and keep it off. This digital scale has been a helpful tool, and I plan on continuing to use it.

In addition to using the scale for food measurement, I've been using it to weigh packages that need to be mailed. I have a few that need sent off and I've found that the scale gives me an accurate reading of how much the package weighs so I can estimate how much postate will be needed.



Features of the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale

1. EatSmart Precision Pro Sensor Technology
2. Compact Design and easy two-button operation
3. Tare Feature; Subtract the weight of any plate or container
4. 4 measurement modes: grams / ounces / kilograms / pounds
5. Max weight 11 pounds / 5 kilograms
6. Auto-Calibration; 3 minute Auto-Turnoff
7. Economically priced
8. FREE Calorie Factors book - Perfect for calorie counting and portion control
