EatSmart Precicion Pro Food Scale Review and Giveaway


Do you know someone who is trying a new diet, trying to watch their weight, or just trying to eat healthier and live a healthier lifestyle?  If so, the EatSmart is a great place to go to find a practical gift that they can use for years to come!

EatSmart specializes in scales- both kitchen and bathroom scales.

Their bathroom scales include the EatSmart Digital Bathroom Scale, EatSmart Precision Premium Bathroom Scale, and the EatSmart Precision Plus Premium Bathroom Scale.  These three scales are used to measure body weight so you can better track weight loss or gain, depending on your needs.

EcoSmart's line of kitchen scales include the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale, EatSmart Nutrition Scale (which calculate calories, carbs, fiber, sodium, fats, vitamin k and six other nutrients from packaged foods and 999 whole foods!!!), and the EatSmart Precision Retro Mechanical Kitchen Scale.  These scales are used in the kitchen to measure and control food portions.

I had the opportunity to review the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Scale for you for this holiday season. I am not really on a diet, per se,  however I have recently decided that I want to start watching what I eat a little more, adjust my diet to include less eating out, and eat more fruits and veggies.  In order to eat healthier I have also cut down on the meats and cheeses that I eat.  I started using the scale to record and control the amount of meat I eat in one day.  I created a limit for myself and once I reach that limit I don't allow myself to eat more meat.

I've been trying out this method for the past week and a half and I have to say, I'm enjoying it!  It's not just knowing what I eat that is making me feel better, but being able to understand how certain foods affect my body.

I will admit that I was blessed with my Dad's metabolism.  At 6'3 he weighs about 160 pounds max.  Tall and skinny... that's him, that's my brother, and thank goodness that is me, too!  At 5'7 I have weighed between 115-120 my whole adult life.  However, after my injury in February of 2009, I have been a lot less active and have gained a bit of weight and now weigh in close to 130 (128 right now, to be exact!).  While this isn't horrible I've begun to realize that I can't rely on my metabolism to keep my weight steady.  And since exercise is limited for me for the rest of my life I now have to carefully control what I eat and how I eat it in order to maintain a healthy weight for myself.  Being able to control serving sizes and keeping track of ounces has helped me a lot in just this past week and a half and my EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Scale has been a huge help with that!

But in true me-fashion, I can't use a product like this for just one use!  I've mentioned in the past that I have pet rats and part of being a responsible pet owner is to be able to track your pets weight gain and diet.  I have been using the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Scale to keep track of my rats' weights.  Once every 3 days I weigh them to make sure they are gaining or maintaining their weights and are at healthy weights.  It's been great knowing these details more, no more worrying that my babies aren't gaining weight as they should or worrying that they are sick because they appear to be losing weight.  I know this isn't the intended use of the scale, but with good cleaning between uses I have been able to fully utilize my scale!

An EatSmart Bathroom or Kitchen Scale would make a great gift for someone on your list who is health conscious or who controls their food intake for health or medical reasons.  And, since scales like these have many uses, it would also make a great gift for a small animal breeder or owner!  :)

What I Love: I love the simplicity of the scale.  I was able to just remove it from the box and start using it.  The EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale is also the most economical of the EatSmart like of digital scales.  I found it would be affordable for even the most frugal food junkie!  The scale is also available in 5 colors so you can match it to the rest of your kitchen appliances.  Finally, it's available from Amazon.com!  So just use your Swagbucks gift cards to save even more!

What I Don't Love:  I can't tell from the website if the scale is available in brick and mortar shops in addition to Amazon.com.
