The Best Nutrition Scales

Close control of body composition requires portion control, which means kitchen scales are a necessity for any physique enthusiast. Even if you’re extremely metabolically and athletically gifted, the only way to get close to optimum results is to quantify your portions.

I’ve used many scales over the years. Most were cheap and merely did the job. I finally invested a bit more in these, and it was one of the best purchases I ever made.

Atkins Endulge Peanut Caramel Bar Review

But I saw this Atkins Endulge Peanut Caramel Bar in the bargain bin for 39p down from £1.50, and figured it would be hard to go wrong for that price. Not to mention the idea of a good-sized peanut caramel treat for 136 Calories is pretty enticing.
