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.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
