A cell phone.
Sometimes other people such as friends or relatives could just tell them they are adding weight.

Again, control the amount of carbohydrate intake, and other fatty foods in other not to exceed the normal amount of fat the body requires.

Manage your sleeping hours
Sleeping outside the normal hour is an indirect way of adding weight. The general sleeping hours can last for 8 hours for adults at night. For children, it could last more than that depending on age. Sometimes people take a siesta during the day, but it is regarded mainly for little children and pregnant women.
The siesta is usually a nap taken mostly at midday, which may not take more than one hour. Sleeping can enhance your weight gain especially during the day when you need to be at the workplace.
Therefore, to lose weight on a faster basis, take the normal sleeping hour during the night and avoid siesta during the day. The simple formula is to sleep less often, relax more rather than sleep. You can get yourself busy with something useful during those hours of your usual midday sleep.

Not all exercise can enhance weight loss; there are some special workouts needful for you to lose weight. These include jogging, swimming, walking, cycling, and jumping. Performing these exercise on daily basis enhance the speedy loss of weight. Scheduling an hour or two, regular training can enhance a positive result, either in the morning or in the late evening when the sunsets.
Engage in domestic activities
Not every domestic assignment can improve weight loss. Some domestic chores can enhance an individual to burn fat such as manual gardening, laundry, cleaning up the house, and tidying the surroundings on daily basis. Other chores that can make you breathe heavily and sweat out are another example. Although when you perform domestic chores occasionally you might not get the desired result until you make it a daily habit.
Eat balanced diet
Most of the foods we eat on daily basis contain carbohydrates; with a little amount of protein and other nutrients. That is the most reason why we need to maintain a balanced diet, which contains all the classes of food. The significant aspect is to take these complete nutrients in the required quantity and at the necessary time.

Avoid one sitting position
Sitting in one position for a longer period can increase weight rather than reduce it. Many people who engage in office work activities are usually prone to this condition. Sitting on your workstation for relatively 8 to 9 hours without trying to walk around can make your body system stuffy and chubby. Sometimes when you have fewer tasks to attend to, you start feeling sleepy. It is best to move around once every one hour to avoid weight gain. If possible, walk out of your work environment just for 10 or 20 minutes then back again, this helps a lot
Do more walking than riding
Sometimes, or occasionally it is essential to avoid your car or decide not to commune with your workplace. You can decide to go to the grocery store or any place at all on foot. Take a walking workout and give your body the stretch it needs, rather than always on a ride with your car. Take these exercises twice a week it can help you lose weight and stay flexible. Once you can do a long or short distance walk that makes you sweat it is enough to reduce fat.
