I am looking for some tips to lose fat: workouts, diets, etc.
My workouts consist of 30 minutes of cardio, usually on the eliptical on a cardio or weight loss setting so there's higher resistance. Then I do some strength training exercises, like medicine ball squats, I'll use dumbbells to do shoulder press but I'm looking for help to target my midsection.
Weight loss is a simple matter of eating fewer calories per day than you burn. Fat loss involves controlling what kinds of calories you eat and working hard to maintain muscle mass. You should be doing more strength training than cardio if you want to lose fat.
Cardio is a great way to burn a lot of calories in one session, but strength training is a great way to increase your metabolism (the number of calories your body burns when doing nothing). If you stick with cardio only or a greater ratio of cardio then your body will break down muscle that it perceives that it doesn't need. To stop muscle loss when losing weight you should work your muscles...a lot.
If your only concern is fat loss and not weight loss, then try increasing your protein intake and reducing your carbohydrates. Also, do some heavy weight training 3-4 times per week but make sure you give yourself rest days in between.
As for targeting your midsection for fat loss, you can't. It's impossible to spot reduce fat, your body will lose fat all around. Keep at it and you will see the results you want in the areas you want.
Good luck, and lift heavy!
I always tell my clients to consume 300 to 500 calories less then their daily maintenance calorie intake to lose weight and vice versa to gain weight. Cardio is very important for weight loss as is strength endurance and resistance training. Combine both types of trainings, eat clean under a small caloric deficit and you should see fat melt off. (Not literally ;-) Spot reduction is very difficult to control as your body decides where to burn the fat first. But be consistent and your work will pay off...
