I'd like to ask for some help from this group. My old analog spring scale is rather finicky and doesn't appear to give accurate, consistent readings and it doesn't measure body fat percentage. I did some research and several reviews have rated the "EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale" very high. I was curious if any members have this scale and recommend it or if there are other favorites that this group would recommend.

I looked at the EatSmart one myself but couldn't get it in my area. I ended up with a digital set by Tanita, which is meant to be a decent brand. Mine has readouts for body fat percentage, visceral fat, muscle mass, total body water, etc.

The home scales use bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA), which is good and all but I'm not sure the technology in home scales is that accurate. My body fat percentage swings massively from day to day, for example.

It's handy to have but I don't really put any trust in my scales read outs to be honest - I take it as a very rough guide. I'm going to be getting a DEXA scan shortly to get a better handle on my body fat percentage.

Look way at bottom of screen .. there is a "contact" link which sends them either an email or a PM. I've used that before and gotten a response.

Default to "Today" on Reports tab
I think it depends how you get to the reports screen. If you come from the Today button at the bottom of the Diary screen, it plonks you into the Pie chart for today.

Copy recipe.
Very annoying. How tough would it be to allow us to copy. I'm supposed to start from scratch to eliminate one ingredient?
