The yummy mummy has co-authored a book on her post-pregnancy weight loss and more. She launched it in Mumbai with Shobhaa De and co-author Madhuri Banerjee.

If you're a certain age, there is no way you wouldn't have had a poster of Karisma Kapoor on your bedroom wall.

The actress who took break from movies after getting married and becoming a mother launched her book, My Yummy Mummy Guide, at Hamley's toy store in Mumbai.

Kapoor is a mother of two and credits yoga for getting back into shape.

At the launch, a fairly short affair, Karisma Kapoor spoke about not killing yourself to get back into shape but rather eat in moderation.

"Don't overdo it," she said. "I love to eat too but I do it in moderation."

Responding to a question, Kapoor admitted that there can be undue pressure on a young mother to get back into shape.

"You've just created a miracle (and you are expected to look good)," she said adding "Any woman will take about eight to nine months to lose her pregnancy weight."
