In honor of Jersey Shore returning this week, we’re taking a look at the workouts and diets of the “guidos” and “guidettes.”
Today we’re examining Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. At 4 feet 9 inches, Snooki is looking great this season (but, alas, without her trademark poof). To get ready for Miami, Snooki tried the Cookie Diet on which she lost ten pounds to get her down to a healthy 100 pounds for the four-foot-nine celebrity. On this diet (created by Dr. Siegal), she ate one meal and six cookies throughout the day. (Each cookie has about 90 calories and 5 grams of protein.) She has even cut back on her alcohol intake to cut back on even more extra calories.
In addition, Snooki’s been hitting the Miami gyms with JWoww and Sammi Sweetheart. So what else does Snooki include in her workout? Snooki likes pole dancing. Pole dance workouts are becoming increasingly popular with celebrities, like Eva Longoria, Carmen Electra, and Kendra Wilkinson and the rest of the Girls Next Door (Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt). “It’s just another fun way to exercise and get out of the gym and off the treadmill,” says Bridget.
We give Snooki a lot of credit as she has overcome an eating disorder (anorexia) as a teenager. “In high school, I really wouldn’t eat…,” Snooki revealed. “I would only have lunch, and I would only have salads.” Until a school nurse discovered her “diet,” Snooki was consuming a single cracker or cucumber per day. She was down to only 80 pounds! With the support of her parents, she was able to get back to a healthy weight. Hopefully, the pressures of being a celebrity doesn’t send her back to this bad habit.
All things considered, out of a possible 5 Fist Pumps, we’re going to give Snooki’s current workout and diet: 3 Fist Pumps! Keep up the good work, Snooki!
