    i have been bodybuilding for 24 years and know from experience you cant spot reduce- your body chooses where the weight comes from (ie sit ups wont make you lose stomache fat) and the best way to tone is diet and excercise

    dieting will help you lose fat and show off the muscle which no matter how toned it is, if its covered in fat you wont see it

    however when i start losing weight i do some ab work and it does seem to 'pull in' the midsection as the muscle tightens giving the impression of a smaller waist

    good luck-1st few weeks are hard but when you start seeing results youre hooked!!

    If you want a tight stomach, or six pack abs, this does have more to do with your diet than sit ups, etc.
