Food scale?

Apologies if this has been well covered in other threads, but I didn't see it. I would like to pick up a food scale. Can anyone please give me a tip on where to look? Only thing that came to mind was restaurant supply stores. But, I am not sure I need a fancy machine like seen in deli counters in grocery stores...unless they are cheaper than I imagine.

Re: Food scale?

I bought one at Wal-Mart, but it was defective.

I ended up getting one off Amazon.com. It doesn't have a bowl, but you put your own empty bowl on the scale before you turn it on and it will zero out the bowl weight.

Re: Food scale?

I had one from years ago. I think it is a CUisinart--electronic style. Its really a little round disk with digital readout. Try Walmart, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond!

Re: Food scale?

Just got a cheapie at the local supermarket. Weighed my chicken for my normal afternoon meal of chicken, beans, fruit and almonds. I was shorting myself on my protein by at least an ounce all this time. I was wondering what has been going on with my weight loss. I am down to 165 (6'1") and I don't think I should be. At least my metcon and strength seem to be doing ok. Hopefully this will help! Thanks again for the tip, even if it should have been obvious to me all along!
