Gifts For The New Year: Eat Smart Digital Scale Giveaway!

If losing weight and getting healthy was part of your New Year’s Resolution, then having the right tools only makes sense in achieving those goals.  The EatSmart Digital Bathroom Scale is the ideal way to keep track of your weight scaleloss this year.  It’s easy to use and a great accessory for any home.

I haven’t weighed myself in quite a while ,but had a general idea as to what to expect so I  was excited to see how close or off the scale actually was.   I was excited and skeptical all at the same time.  I figured I’ve gone this long without knowing so why take the chance of once again obsessing over how much I weigh.    But then again, I really wanted to know.

It was simple!   All I did was give it a tap with my foot, stepped on and got a very  accurate readout.  I say accurate because I knew the ball park range I was looking for and it nailed it!  So… don’t go thinking for a second your eye’s are playing tricks on you and you’re not seeing clearly.  This thing is accurate and the LCD is just large enough at 3.5″ with a blue backlit that makes it easy to read.  You can also weigh yourself in the dark, just in case this feature would be a deciding factor in you choosing a scale.

A little more about the Eat Smart Digital Scale:

The EatSmartDigital scale is engineered to the highest precision standards. Four EatSmart precision sensors ensure that you will get an accurate measurement every time.  The slim design of the scale will fit perfectly in any surrounding, and large non-slip platform safely allows weights up to 330 lbs.

    Eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full. If I deprive myself of foods I want, I end up pigging out way more in the long run.

    Wait until you’re hungry to eat. You are hungry when your stomach growls.

  46. Lori says:

    I have found that eating a low fat yogart in the morning will get you going and you are not so hungry right at lunch time so you can eat a lighter lunch and not feel so bogged down, therefore eating better and less!!

  47. Jill L says:

    Exercise. The more I exercise, the less I feel like eating junk and undoing the hard work I’ve done.

  48. Sandra K321 says:

    I have a “snack” mid morning with eat or coffee (no sugar) and then a mid-afternoon “snack” instead of lunch. That way I’m not starving by noon (and when I’m starving I eat more than I should) and the snacks are actually healthy foods, not snacks.

  49. Deb Anderson says:

    My tip is no carbs after dark. None. Not even popcorn with a movie. Carbs after dark don’t get burned off and go straight to fat storage.

    When you eat out, put one-half (at least) of your entree into a doggie bag right away

  96. Barbara says:

    My best tip is to learn how to make low cal veggie soup. I just made some with carrots, green beans and baby corn that is 25 calories per cup. Then freeze it in individual servings that you can take out and heat in the microwave while you’re waiting for dinner, wanting a snack, or as a light lunch with a few whole wheat crackers.

  131. Dottie {Mahon} says:

    Because I worry about getting enough vitamins, I have found that Kale is tasty eaten raw/fresh. Besides, even steaming removes some nutrients ~ I think. And, it fills me just like apples or carrots !

  132. Dottie {Mahon} says:

    I like to keep up my energy. And stay hydrated. 4C makes “Totally Light 2 Go” Energy Rush with Taurine in several great flavors, & it’s sugar free. Between it & Kale, I figure to lose between 6 – 10 lbs. before summer clothes are needed :)

    2) Drink lots of water.

    3) Vitamins, vitamins, vitamins.

    4) Don’t eat within a few hours of bedtime.

    5) When I feel myself getting addicted to sugar products and fast food (major addictions of mine), I go on liquid meals (Slimfast, carnation instant breakfast, fruit and protein powder smoothies, veggie soups, etc) for a few days. It helps break the cravings for me.

    I lost 42 lbs a while ago and managed to keep it off for 2 years by making sure that I exercise and eat in moderation. I never cut out entire food groups because I don’t believe it’s a realistic or healthy way to live and lose weight so I eat everything in moderation and track my calories.

    I’ve lost 9 lbs. in the past 2 weeks by doing the following, and I am not starving!
    Chocolate was my trigger food, so I don’t have it in the house anymore, I’ve always drank a lot of water and continue to do so. I eat nothing after 8pm and eat breakfast daily. Yogurt is great to eat because it helps you to lose belly fat..make sure it’s a nonfat yogurt. Fresh fruit is my late morning and afternoon snack. Don’t drink your calories. Fruit juice of sugar laden, as are many other drinks. If you haven’t already, switch to skim milk. These tips should help out a lot. I’m thrilled with my weight loss.

  193. I’ve been staying on track by using the treadmill as early in the day as possible. I’m too tired in the morning to think of good excuses not to exercise.

  205. Drink plenty of water, keep portion sizes reasonable, and I’ve also heard that drinking a glass of milk every day will help your body metabolize faster.

    Switch to smaller plates! This really helped me lose weight without even thinking about it. I never realized how many more calories I was consuming because I felt I had to clean my plate. I put less portions on my smaller plates and never go back for seconds because I am truely full. That and lots of water!

  207. Emily says:

    Finding a means of exercising that I enjoy made all the difference to me. And once I found one and enjoyed the feeling of being active, I came around to other forms of fitness that I used to *hate* (running, yoga, cardio machines, etc.)

    when I shop and feel like i need to buy junk food, i put the food in my cart so I get the thrill of putting it in my basket, then I shop for nutritious healthy food and by comparison, the healthy food looks so much better! it reminds me that my body is worth eating right! I then have no problem putting the junk food back!

  219. Protiens in the morning with breakfast or for a mid-morning snack will keep you fuller longer. A spoonful of Peanut Butter and Eggs are two great choices

    For me, the best thing I can do to curb my appetite and avoid overeating is to stay as hydrated as possible, drinking as much water and tea as possible between meals to keep my stomach full, and about an hour before dinner, eating a slice of bread with olive oil to “pre-fill” my stomach so I get fuller a lot faster. So far so good!

  278. Misty says:

    my tip would be “out of site out of mind”
    in other words, put the junk food in the cubord, or in another room. keep fresh fruit on the counter or table.
