The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Weight tools for food

    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.

    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)
    the only things holding you back are the limitations in your mind, not your body.
