    I think the key to anything like this is balancing a good diet with a good exercise routine. I'd probably do research on the internet about healthy balanced diets as there's such a big list of good things to eat. The usual things are chicken, fish, vegatables, fruits, pulses, brown/wholemeal rice/pasta etc. Cut out large quantities of booze, moderate your intake of junk, cut out sugary crap drinks and switch to water/squash. My phrase that i live to is everything in moderation. If you start watching your diet and also introduce exercise. The best sort of exercise to introduce will be CV stuff e.g. jogging, cycling but best of all swimming. Swimming will help tone all over. Also you'll need to start doing some weight sessions as well if you want tone to your muscles. Take it steady though if you don't do exercise usually.
    Just bear in mind that rome wasn't built in a day so 6 weeks of training isn't enough to be getting a six pack but if you're sensible you could lose the bloat round the stomach area and maybe drop a little weight.
    But i will state the above is just a personal opinion following how i train and eat. If you are worried or need proper advice ask your doc or your local trainer at the gym because i don't know your medical history/your size/fitness levels etc. so i'm just giving a general feedback :)
