I Have Four Pairs of Letters

I have four pairs of letters,
Leaving two to stand alone.

When playing on your phone.

I help you get things done,
With one big caveat,
If taken to extremes,
I could make you fat.

What am I?

Efficiency. Being efficient helps you get things done, but if you’re extremely efficient with your tasks you get less exercise.
