You can't target fat loss. So forget every marketing gimmick out there that told you that you could if you follow their meal plan, buy their diet book or used their exercise equipment.
Fat loss occurs all over the body when you create a calorie deficit from your maintenance needs. ie: eat less and move more.
Where it comes off most/least is determined by genetics and your natural body shape. If you're a pear shape, fat will hold on for dear life in your lower body. If you're an apple shape, fat will hold onto dear life in your midsections.
I'm 110 lbs, I workout 6-7 days a week (both cardio and strength training), I eat clean and healthy and I still have a flabby, pot belly left over that I never had before I gained weight.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
