Is today’s competition prize the most exciting competition prize ever? No. But is weight loss exciting? Also no. (Sorry!)
Today’s competition prize is a set of digital kitchen scales from scale masters Salter to help you keep on top of your portion sizes. Weight loss is so much easier when you’ve got scales in the kitchen as well as the bathroom as you’re not going to know the true extent of your calorie intake until you’re measuring what you’re eating – guessing just doesn’t cut it, no matter how good you think you are at eyeballing your 50g of oats* in the morning.
*In a recent experiment, 100% of people thought 120g of porridge oats was actually 50g when eyeballing a portion. Ok, so that experiment featured just one participant (me), but still. 120g of porridge oats is 435 calories, vs 181 calories for my intended portion of 50g. So you can see how easy it is to consume way more than you intended without your trusty kitchen scales.
