    I have salter digital scales which are brilliant. They measure in either grams or ounces and you can just put a plate or bowl on top of them (they are flat) and zero the scale so you can see what you are weighing iyswim!

    Well, I don't as the bars are higher in carbs and IF I have a dinner too I'm worried I'll be thrown out of ketosis. So if I were you I'd just stick to the dinner OR the bar.... not both.

    If you like herbs and spices, these are fine to use on ss+ (my CDC confirmed this yesterday....) just to make the chicken or fish less bland.... :)

    I just got some from ebay for £9.99 free postage. The website address for them direct (which are the same price) is www.xs-stock.co.uk
    [​IMG]

    I ordered before 12 on one day and they were with me next day - pretty good!!

    Think you just put items direct on top or in a bowl (zeroing it before you start putting things in) and away you go - weighs in individual grams and oz's

    Hope this helps

    Yeah, I know how you feel. before I went on my hols I was advised by everyone to start eating as my BMI was near enough 25 etc. but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I was terrified in case I put weight on before the holiday. I ate when I was away, no problem coz I accepted I would put weight on, but I know the feeling of being frightened to eat. I think we all feel that at some point and it is one of the things we need to overcome. Good luck, I am sure you will be ok.
