What kind of scale is ideal to measure the stuff you guys eat? I saw a scale that can weigh food in 2gram intervals (2gram accuracy) would that be good enough, or do I need one that is more precise than that?

What do you guys use? :) Digital or analog scale?

The one that you mentioned above would be fine IMO. I use an analog scale and it suits my needs fine, and also much easier on the wallet.

i bought a food scale for maybe $7 -- neither digital or analog ... just a plain plastic scale with 1 gram increments.

2 gram increment is fine. especially with food like steak where you use over 100 grams so you are going to be less then 2% off the weight.

What kind of store would you buy a food scale at?

I just bought one at Meijers. Any superstore will have them. Mine was 7 bucks - just a plastic one with a needle scale. I am going to get a digital one soon... they are about 30 bucks but it will work better for what I need. I weigh food in tupperware containers (I cook one day for most of the weeks meals)
