I don't believe you can really target an area per se. I mean you just have to reduce your body fat.
Personlly I fast every day and I am a vegetarian. I eat like a entire day of food in only 4 hours, generally in the morning, then I eat nothing until the next morning. I look and feel much better since going this route but it may not be for everybody.
With most pants, not dress pants, the size of the pants does not correlate with waist size directly. They shave a number or two off to make people feel better. So, a 36 inch waist probably correlates to a size 34 for most jeans.
