Muscle tone: I think what you may be asking is what's the best way to lose weight and improve muscle tone. If that is the case, please focus on getting regular exercise to include cardio, stretching and resistance exercises. Healthy diet to avoid processed foods and getting healthy servings of fresh fruits and vegetables daily.
