Okay listen. Having a 'set' food diet sucks. So don't program in your head and have to keep track and torture yourself with foods around you by just eating that. You can eat a wide variety of foods but just eat them in small portions and make sure not to eat junk food. so just keep a wide variety of foods such as FRUITS, VEGETABLES, WHITE MEATS [eggs, fish, chicken], BEANS and POTATOES and such, all natural, healthy foods. Think of it this way, "the food with the least ingredients in it is usually the healthiest for you!!!!" A very important rule.

As for the exercising, do not eat within 2 hours of exercising before or after. In order to lose fat you already have do AT LEAST 30 minutes of cardio a day, maybe twice a day. Cardio may fall under the categories or fast paced workouts such as POWER WALKING, SWIMMING, RUNNING, BIKING and such. Cardio takes off pounds from all over your body. Once you have a limited amount of body FAT thats when you can start shaping up muscles. So once you think you are nice and fit, for exercising, still do your 30 minutes of cardio FIRST before your workout workout, and then do exercising pertaining to specific parts of your body. You can NOT target weight LOSS to any part of your body, it takes it from all over needed places. But you CAN tone up muscles in specific parts of your body. Example, doing sit-ups with a 'fat' stomach will only push the bulge out more because you are toning the muscles 'underneath' and need to get rid of the stomach fat in order for your muscles to show. So this is the time you do that, so sit-ups for the stomach, look up "oblique workouts" online to get the sides of your stomach in order for it to look sculpted. Do butt and thigh workouts and some arm workouts.. just make sure you get all over your body toned up.
