“I wish someone had given me such a book when I gave birth to my first child in New York, 11 years ago.” explains Christine Amour-Levar.  “This book is really a summary of all my research and experience along the years, as well as a collection of physical and mental tools that helped me get my body, and more importantly my groove back, after four pregnancies.”  As Christine describes it, being Mummylicious means being the best and most attractive you can possibly be as a woman and as a mother.

A woman who is Mummylicious oozes confidence and femininity and does not represent the more conventional image we have of frumpy motherhood. She has committed to taking care of herself, body and mind, and will always try to look and be her very best. She is first and foremost a woman – not just a mother.

“Mummyliciousness is about embracing motherhood and addressing your physical, mental and emotional needs as a woman, while finding your own distinct brand of beauty and brains” declares Chistine Amour-Levar.  “But being Mummylicious doesn’t mean that you spend hours in front of the mirror or at the gym while you neglect to care for your children at home. Your family and your children are your top priority, but you nurture them without losing your sense of self, or giving up on your figure and on your looks.”

The book also comes with...

A Weight-Loss Contract with Yourself, a Progressive Measurement Table for your figure, 25 MUMMYLICIOUS Recipes and is filled with interesting facts and ideas, as well as inspiring quotes from the likes of Miss Piggy, Oscar Wilde and Sir Winston Churchill no less!  A much awaited book about motherhood and feminine empowerment.
