  1. Thank you Ally, for the article. Can you recommend any good diet to tone the butt and hips area? Good article otherwise.

    • Hi Samantha, diet alone won’t tone any area. If you combine a healthy diet along with using the sites mentioned in the post to help tone the hips and butt, you should be good! With exercising and hoping to make some gains, a diet with a bit extra protein and carbs will help ensure your muscles have enough fuel to rebuild.

      Thank you,
