I recommend this scale for housewives like me and those who are working with their weight. We are not experts who have a thorough grasp of nutrional values of any foodstuff. But we do care about the nutrition and our health then we need EatSmart to tell us how much Calcium in a glass of milk or how much Calories in a tomato...It's user-friendly, simply put any kind of food on the scale and type in its code and the values instantly show up from Fiber, Vitamin K, Total Fat to Calories, Cholesterol, Calcium (and some other kinds). There are values of up to 1000 foods in the database but I wish there were more codes for recipe ingredients like honey or sugar and beverages as well. The memory function is convenient when combining multiple ingredients so you can get the information of the entire meal. It doesn't take up much space in the counter and has a contemporary design. This will be a great help in managing diabetes I think.
