Yes, I use a digital scale. In practice though, I find packaging for even fresh meat etc from the supermarket tends to have to have the calories per ounce or per 4 ounces or whatever on it, so I go by that x my scale results. I also primarily use frozen vegetables because I am hyper-vigilant about waste and not being locked in to using up fresh vegetables that I have within a certain amount of time. Frozen vegetable packages tend to have the calories per cup, so I go by that. For everything else (fruit, when I do have fresh vegetables, or other items without packaging), I tend to use fatsecret.com, just integrated with the rest of my tracking. If it's something I'm iffy about, sometimes I will compare the googled results from myfitnesspal, caloriecount.about.com, etc.
