FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

A Scale With Weight Loss Advice: Taylor 7209 Glass Digital Cal Max Scale

This is a good looking and reasonably priced scale.  The neutral aspect of it's design allows it to be used with practically any decor.  I am glad it does not have a voice function.  It weighs about a pound heavier than our current Taylor digital scale.   That is weighing people not the weight of the scale.   The BMI feature is interesting.  Body Mass Index is one popular method of identifying obesity.  You input your height, weight and activity level.   This is supposed to identify your BMI.   It than ascribes calories to maintain the current weight.  Oddly it suggested a weight somewhat heavier than my current Taylor scale but assigned me considerably more calories to maintain about 1.5 pounds more than the older scale.  I don't intend to increase my calorie intake despite being given a get out of jail free card by the scale software.  The concept seems good and anything that helps reduce caloric intake should be encouraged.  In my case, common sense will overrule technology and I will NOT start eating more. BTW the photo makes the deck of the scale look white, it is clear.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
