NEWS GAL: Jersey Shore Snooki’s Incredible Weight Loss: Brought On By Latest Season?By Danielle Corcione | January 12, 2012 | Entertainment
If you’ve been watching Jersey Shore this season, you may have noticed that
AmericaΓÇÖs favorite ΓÇ£original meatballΓÇ¥ from the MTV show, Nicole Polizzi — best known as Snooki — dropped serious pounds last year. The 4 foot 9 reality star now weighs a mere 98 lbs. According to Snooki’s Twitter account, the secret to her new slim physique is weight-loss pill called Zantrex-3. The drug is a concoction of natural green tea, caffeine and guarana, and claims to be completely free of amphetamine.
During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Snooki claimed fitness was now a part of her life, complete with Zumba classes and a personal trainer. She cut down on liquor to achieve her goal. People magazine also quoted that her diet consisted of egg whites for breakfast and ΓÇ£chicken and salad.ΓÇ¥
Ironically enough, Snooki’s sudden desire to be super lean may have been brought on by the latest season of Jersey Shore that’s currently airing. In the Season 5 premier, which ran last Thursday, Mike ΓÇ£The SituationΓÇ¥ Sorrentino took a joke too far when Snooki asked for a roll of bread. ΓÇ£You already have enough,ΓÇ¥ was the line that sent the pint-sized reality star sobbing to the bathroom.
In the ladiesΓÇÖ room, she confessed about her battle with an eating disorder in high school. ΓÇ£I would eat a cracker and say I was full,ΓÇ¥ she said. It was an insult that drove her back into her teenage years. Perhaps, her weight-loss was not only a trick of a twice-a-day diet pill and personalized work-outs.
Snooki is signed up for another tattoo appointment, and reportedly wants to get a boob job, but that isnΓÇÖt all. While on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Show which aired Jan. 3, Snooki discussed her serious boyfriend Jionni LaVelle (pictured with her above) and teased about a $500,000 engagement ring. Snooki wants to settle down and start a family with a deadline of two years. She even supposed she would be the one to propose first!
To keep up on Snooki and her goal to maintain her new sexy frame, follow her on Twitter @snooki and watch the new season of Jersey Shore every Thursday at 10 p.m, on MTV.
