  4. Doubles up as an alarm clock:  You can set up a motivating song or music as your wake up call along with a reminder to keep on track and what your target goal is.
  5. Fitness apps:  Download fitness apps which come with preprogrammed schedules for weight loss. By following the instructions on a regular basis you will benefit manifold.
  6. Talk to a loved one: Research shows that when you talk to a loved one when the binging alarm sounds, you will give up on the unwanted calories as you will be satiated with the reassurance from the loved one.
  7. Apps for stress relief:  It is believed that stress also leads to weight gain. By downloading an app to relieve stress or for meditation you will be able to bring your stress levels down.
