Amcells 500 pound capacity scale
± 0.10 lb for 500 model
± 0.05 lb for 250 model

A high quality scale that is both accurate and consistent is a long-term investment that make sense:

I have been using the AmCells scales for about 8 years now, and am completely satisfied with their consistency and accuracy and durability and usability. While not cheap, they are outstanding investments.

A quality scale lasts forever, and has no ambiguity as to the actual readout. I prefer a digital scale— the number is displayed with no possible confusion.

Weight loss chart trend

This graph shows how I track weight fluid loss overnight. Only a scale with 0.1 pound accuracy is very useful for such things.

Normal variation is 4.0 pounds for a 175 pound male (your author). Going to be dehydrated results in less variation; eating late with fluids results in more.
