Why wouldn't a food scale be useful? I'd think it would be the most useful in helping you if you don't know what an appropriate portion size is, more than anything.

You can eat what want just try to hit your MFP goal so if you weigh what you eat you know exactly how much calories your eating.
Raw chicken weighs more than cooked chicken btw.
