See below.: I find that following a low-glycemic load diet (eating foods that do not rapidly raise blood sugar), doing 30 to 45 minutes of interval training twice a week and resistance training to tone muscles. The diet will help to not gain more fat and promote burning the fat you have. The interval training will increase your fat burning for hours after you've stopped and toned muscles burn more calories/hr.

1-2 pounds a week: Your intake should be reduced by approximately 500 -1000 calories a day so that you can safely lose 1-2 pounds a week. Exercise and be active most days of the week for at least 30 minutes a day, even if it is split up into three 10 minute intervals. This will increase your metabolism and help you lose weight as well.
