This upbeat, achievable plan helps you get back into shape after pregnancy, by combining super nutrition (including meal suggestions and dietary advice) and effective short exercise routines you can do anywhere. It's the easy way for mums to become yummy mummies – reclaiming their bodies and losing their baby-weight safely and successfully.

A mother herself, Kate Cook understands the frustrations, self-doubts and lack of control felt by many mums, so the focus is on straightforward solutions for real lifestyles. The plan is wrapped around a humorous 'chic-lit' style narrative for an immediate connection with the reader, but is easy to dip into, with clever tips, meal plans and easy exercises. Kate offers sound advice not only on nutrition and exercise, but on how to find the time, energy and motivation to get going and keep going. There are quotes from real mums throughout, to reinforce the life-coaching elements, helping you to save time and stay sane and focused.
