When you buy food from a restaurant or supermarket, there’s a chance you’ll find that a digital scale on the shelf doesn’t work.
In fact, the scale itself is not an accurate representation of how much food you’ve actually eaten.
That’s where digital food scales come in.
Using a digital food sample, we can help you figure out how much you’re actually eating and where you’ve been eating.
You can use this information to get an idea of how many calories you’re really consuming, how many portions you’ve eaten and how much salt you’ve added to your diet.
So, if you’ve ever had a meal where you wanted to eat a few pieces of pizza, you can now use a digital sample to get a good idea of what you’re eating.
This tutorial will show you how to use a sample to estimate how much your meal was.
Determine the Sample We’ll need a sample of food.
This sample can be a piece of cheese, a piece or an entire plate.
The sample can also be a small piece of food, or an entirely different food.
A food sample comes in different sizes.
A small, plastic plate can be about the size of a credit card.
A larger plate, such as a dinner plate, can be up to three times the size.
A sample of a medium-sized piece of pizza can be as large as an entire sandwich.
Get Your Sample to Me The first thing we’ll do is find the size and shape of the sample.
Using your finger, you tap the food sample against a screen.
The screen automatically opens to display a list of sample sizes.
The next screen shows the average number of calories per serving for each sample.
Calculate Your Sample Size Using the sample size, you’ll be able to determine how much each serving of food is.
The average of the first two numbers (total calories) is your sample size.
For example, if your sample is about two cups, then the average is 2.4.
So your sample’s average is about 2.2 calories per cup.
If your sample has about four cups, the average will be 2.5 calories per cu.
In other words, the sample’s total calorie intake is 2,500 calories.
Find Your Average Calorie Intake for Your Sample The next number to calculate is your average daily calorie intake.
For the purposes of this tutorial, that’s the number of servings you’ve had each day for the past two weeks.
To calculate the average daily calories for your sample, multiply your sample average by two.
For a 20-ounce (330 grams) sample, that would be 1,400 calories.
To find your average, multiply the sample average number by two (or the sample intake number, if the sample has one).
So if your average is 1,500, you’d multiply the average by 2.1 to get 1,600 calories per day.
Calculating Your Daily Calorie Intensity for Your Meal If you’re like most people, you probably have a lot of food that’s not at the top of your plate.
To make sure you get enough calories, you should keep track of your daily energy intake.
To figure out the amount of food you eat, you divide the average of your two daily intake numbers by the average value of your intake for the day.
For instance, if for a typical week you have 2,300 calories, your average of daily intake would be 2,600.
You would divide your 2,200 daily intake by two to get 2,400.
Calculated Daily Energy Expenditure For the average meal, divide your intake of two daily values by two times the number.
For an example, to calculate the amount your average meal was, multiply two daily calories by two, or your intake by one.
For your sample meal, multiply one daily calorie by one times the sample energy intake (which you’ve calculated).
For example: If you had a 200-calorie (about 300-ounce) meal for lunch and a 200,000-cal (about 350-ounce-cal) meal in the evening, your sample intake for lunch would be 200,200,200 calories.
Your average daily energy expenditure for the lunch portion would be 150,000 calories.
Calculator For the sample meal You can also use the calculator to estimate your daily calorie expenditure.
For this example, we’re going to divide the sample daily energy consumption number by the sample consumption number.
To get your average calorie expenditure, multiply each daily intake number by one (or by the daily energy use, if there’s one).
For instance: If your average intake for your meal for a day was 600 calories, multiply 600 calories by one to get 600 calories per meal.
If you have 600 calories for a meal each day, your daily intake for that meal would be 300,600,600 kcal.
You’d multiply 300 calories by the 200,600 daily
