Snooki is currently sporting a much slimmer now than the one fans witnessed in the heyday of Jersey Shore. Following Lorenzo’s birth, the reality star went on a healthy campaign that included breastfeeding and frequent sweat sessions. But she insists that, despite losing around fifty pounds, she is definitely not, as critics allege, too skinny.
Has Snooki lost too much weight? That’s what some naysayers are currently claiming. After all, the celeb has lost a ton of weight since her partying days of Jersey Shore. And if she’s like your average Dancing With The Stars contestant, she’ll likely lose a few more pounds within the next few weeks.
But Snooki says that, while the number on the scale (96!) may seem small, it’s actually perfectly healthy for someone so short. She recently told Matt Lauer, ”I’m 4-foot-9, which is the size of a third-grader, so weighing 96 pounds is normal for me.” And she has a point — according to the National Institute of Health, Snooki has a perfectly healthy BMI of 20.6.
So, how did Snooki go from overweight party animal to health nut? The pint-sized star attributes her lifestyle changes to a desire to set a better example for her son. And breastfeeding certainly proved helpful in the weight loss effort. “The first 20 [pounds] came [off] from just breastfeeding, so that was awesome! But then I had to wait until I could work out, which was six weeks, and then I just went straight to the gym.”
Once given the go-ahead for working out, Snooki relied on a trainer to get her in shape. She says she’s still working out on a regular basis, as she fears she’ll gain weight if she abandons her exercise routine.
