It's a pretty awesome scale (we still use it to this day!)

You can get it through Amazon:

Using Amazon's Smile program (the link above is tied to it), if you choose Diabetes Hands Foundation, DHF still gets a percentage of the sales proceeds.

Wow!!! Thank you Manny! Beats the tabulating/subtracting in your head! I love that it includes nutritional factors! How much does it retail for??

Hi folks, the link Manny gave for the promotion is no longer active, but I checked the Eatsmart website and the scale is currently on sale for $69.95, $20 off

No worries! Glad the video helped.

oh Manny, thank you, thank you! I got this scale about a month ago, Denise was talking about it. I think the directions are not so great that come with it. The example in the book for Calculate mode shows how to determine Calories. I could care less about calories, I am only interested in carbs. Your video explained it all! You made my day!

I'm sorry I bought it before the promotion.
