Absolutely: However, you may want to consider increasing your protein, as this is a requirement to build healthy muscle and improve overall tone.

Sure.: Moderately sized portions along with cardiovascular exercise and light weight training will help you tone. Keep the protein intake up (1 gram per pound of body weight) will help you build lean muscle.

Also any form of yoga is fantastic for toning. You are using your entire body isometrically to counterbalance, and it produces great results immediately!
