I'm a gymnast, so i have a lot of muscle, but also fat and need to know how to lose the fat quickly and from the right places.
I hate my legs, inner thighs especially, and my tummy, but i have literally no bum and don't want to lose any more fat from there, HELP!!

I know many will say that you can't 'spot' reduce but there are many studies showing that processed foods, especially sugars, are what holds the weight in the belly section and other fatty areas.

Try eliminating processed foods, especially the whites, (sugar, flour and starch) and adding in veggies and 'real' foods with good nutritional value.

tweeking your diet as well as doing the exercises mentioned above could be all that you need to reach your goal.

good luck
If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!

If you're an athlete, it's really important to make sure you get enough protein. If you don't, you will lose muscle and your performance will suffer.

I couldn't agree with you more mummydee. I also pack weight in my midsection and judging by history with carbs (the bad ones at that), I believe that cutting them is the only way to go for me.
