I want to totallllllllllllly firm up my stomach, chest, thighs, and butt.

The gym I go to has just about evvvvvvery piece of equipment you could think of.
My goal is to have all of that accomplished by the time school gets out.

So finally, my questions are:
1) Which types of equipment should I use to accomplish that? (treadmills, bicycle machine, etc??)
2) What foods should I consume to help my weight/inches loss? What should I stay away from?

Thank you in advance.
