Product Review & Giveaway: Perfect Portions Scale

0013

A few weeks ago I received this beautiful gadget and excitedly opened it. Let me share my findings with you!

The Perfect Portions Scale is a special food scale that helps you to accurately keep track of your nutritional & calorie intake. It’s a food scale + nutrition facts. Here’s how it works:

0042

Find your food’s number in the index.

0052

Enter the food code and place the item on the scale.

0062

And there you have a complete nutritional analysis: calories, carbs, fiber, etc. How cool is that?

014

You can also see the % Daily Value.

0072

Let’s try something a bit more complicated: Bread with butter. Enter the food code & weigh the item.

0101

Hit save.

0091

Press the zero button, spread your bread with butter, enter the food code for butter, weigh again and hit save.

0081

Now, hit the total button.

012

And there you have it: an analysis of both your bread & butter. In this way you can calculate your entire meal.

013

You can also easily enter up to 99 custom foods.

0032

Final analysis:

Pros:

Sleek, elegant design.

Simple, easy navigation.

Ability to enter custom foods.

Ability to calculate an entire meal.

Helps to keep track of your actual calorie & nutritional intake.

Cons:

The only thing I dislike about this scale is that you must look up each food item in the food code book. However, it is very easy to locate and enter the code, so it really isn’t a problem.

  1. My food weakness are these things called Hob-Nobs. My husband and I discovered them while on vacation in Ireland. Now, the real problem is, we’ve found them again over here in the states. It was one thing when they were overseas, but now they are available all the time!

    Those delicious, oatmeal, chocolately bits of goodness get me every time!

  2. How cool! I hoped over from Natasha’s blog and landed here in time to enter the giveaway. Even better I’m going to cross my fingers and hold off ordering my new kitchen scale. πŸ™‚

    My weakness is anything that’s just come out from the oven. I have no patience. Of course after my first initial WARM piece I now have to try it again at room temp. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. My weekness – homemade baking. Chocolate Fudge Cake (Grandma’s recipe) would have to be one thing I cannot say no to … and chocolate caramel square …. and raspberry slice (my Mum’s recipe!) … and lolly slice … mmm πŸ™‚

    Love the gadget! How cool.

  4. I’d have to say peanut butter. I like creamy peanut butter on a spoon…that’s pretty easy to have “just one more” of πŸ™‚

  5. I have so many food weaknesses!!! I guess ice cream is my #1 weakness – I love it and would eat it everyday if I didn’t have to watch my cholesterol, calories, etc.

  6. ANY good tasting food is my weakness, but I would have to say I’m more prone to overeating when it comes to cookies, especially warm from the oven.

  7. I try very hard to eat clean and healthy. If I can’t make it we usually don’t eat it. Therefore my weekness is all that I deny myself. Packaged candy, chips, hot dogs…
    Every so often I do allow myself to have some but truth be told I do go a little overboard on these occasions. Boy, is it ever tasty but never makes me feel as completely satisfied as homemade.

  8. My food weakness is definitely ice cream – my favorite is the lemon haagen-dasz five, delicious!!!

    This is a great giveaway for a diabetic!

  9. My weakness is ALL sweets but I’m getting better about it. I won’t go for an oreo or animal cookie- I want fresh warm brownies from the oven, or home-baked oatmeal raisin cookies. It’s all about the trade-offs though. Skip the bread with dinner and allow myself the treat afterwards…and don’t waste the calories on sweets that aren’t worth it.

  10. When I really want to indulge I like something that involves nuts and caramel. My absolute favorite is a shortbread cookie base with nuts and a caramel topping!
