I bought one of those cheap little food scales at WalMart for $3.99. It seems pretty accurate.

I weigh my food as well. I also eat the same thing everyday so I kind of know the amounts by heart now. Like Hansel I use one of the cheap scales that can be purchased at Wal-Mart.

I have been weighing my food for years. I use a Tanita digital diet/kitchen scale like the type at http://balance.balances.com/scales/194 . Like bradley, I also have memorized the quantities that I eat. I have found these devices to be very helpful for cooking/taste purposes as well. It is easy to reproduce successful meals, especially when the cooking is done with a microwave.

I measure/weigh everything I eat now, seeing the best results ever since!

When I'm trying to cut down to less than 10% body fat I do, however, if I'm not dieting or not trying to get lower then 10% body fat then I don't..

I measure (when i'm cutting), never weighed my food though.

I have been weighing and measuring my food for a month now and have seen more results in a month than I have in a long time. I highly recommend.

I need to do this, going to Walmart to find a scale

I was eating 12 and 14oz steaks before I started weighing everything, pissed away alot of Calories and money not weighing.

I always wondered how the hell you're supposed to figure out how many grams a piece of chicken is.

Hmm...so, gotta buy a scale huh? Well, at this point, I don't really care what I eat (trying to bulk) so I'll get to that when I cut.
