Eating smaller portions is a tricky slope to slide. You don't have to eat like a bird to eat smaller portions, remember that. An average plate size with average portions is enough as long as the meal is well balanced. Cutting out soda and other caffinated drinks, limiting snacks (you don't have to illiminate them, just eat them in moderation) can all help with your eating habits. But yes, to answer your question, eating smaller portions and working out 20-30 minutes a day can be very beneficial to losing weight.
Cardio is the best and most trusted way to lose the fat. Remember that muscle weighs more then fat and the more you work out the more muscle you build. Regardless of the workout. You lose inches before you see a physical difference on the scale and on your body. So you will lose inches on your body before you lose the lbs on the scale. Remember that.
Pilates and Yoga are great ways to reshape, tone/strengthen.
