What kind of scale should you get?
Kitchen -- The best scale to measure your meats is a digital postal scale. If that cannot be had (you can order one here), then a digital kitchen scale is fine. This is MOST important to get accurate reading on your meats.
Weight -- The best scale to weigh yourself is a digital scale that measures in .2 increments.
Is it mandatory? Not really. Just highly advisable, especially for Phase 3.
If you do not have a digital scale but rather the ones that have the hand held devices, then it is inaccurate, measuring up one leg and down the other. (Kind of fun to watch it move though). Even then, unless it is one of those expensive ones - it is still not really accurate.
Of course, the only way to get a really accurate measurement of your body fat is to do one of those tests in the water which is extremely expensive and not necessary.
Either of these scales are available for under $30 each. You can even find them at the grocery store.
