'Jersey Shore' Star Snooki’s Secret Diet Weapon: Cookies!

Since Jersey Shore made a huge splash on MTV, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has gained instant fame and a legion of fans that have embraced her signature pouf as much as her feisty personality. But the one thing that’s changed in her life which Snooki isn’t happy about? She’s packed on a few pounds. “When I was at the shore I didn’t eat the right things, I drank a lot,” Snooki told PEOPLE at the Shrine Lounge and Nightclub at the MGM Grand Foxwoods. “I was definitely out of shape.” Now focused on “getting in shape again” and dropping one dress size, the spunky 4’9″ star has started on the Cookie Diet—a weight loss program that consists of eating six cookies a day made with natural hunger-suppressing ingredients such as oats and a healthy dinner. “Instead of having steak for meals, I just have a salad,” says Snooki, 22, who also goes to a cheerleading gym and hits the treadmill several times a week. And for those nights she still wants to go out and have a good time?  “If you want to go out,” Snooki suggests, “just drink a light drink.” (Her personal fave: The bubble gum cocktail) Despite her new focus on her figure, the Marlboro, N.Y. native is determined to remain healthy in Hollywood. “I know I’m in the limelight but I’m not going to be one of those girls who is a stick like everyone else,” says Snooki, who recently revealed she suffered from an eating disorder in high school. “I’m not copying anybody else. I’m just being myself and I’m happy.” –reporting by Diane Herbst

The cookie diet is an excellent choice! I actually know several people as well as myself that have lost a lot of weight on the program. It’s also super healthy and you don’t need to worry about getting all your proteins and nutrients because they r all in the cookies! Go Snookie, you can do it!!

This is the easiest diet I have been on. These cookies control your hunger so you eat less calories. I now lost my weight and maintain it by eating a cookie or two a day. This helps take my hunger away and I eat less calories. I thank Dr. Siegal everyday for inventing this no brainer diet. I look at this not as a diet but as a cookie that controls my hunger. I’ve tried every diet and this is the only one I have been sucessful on. Thanks again.

Hey there, terribly helpful blog with excellent articles.Will bookmark it.I think when you go on a diet plan with meals you like then you’ll succeed as well as lose many kilos.The thing is that, if you do not like vegetables just discover a diet program with your much-loved meals.By doing this you’ll reduce substantial pounds.What do you think?

It’s hard to lose weight and keep it off. Good that she works on it and is honest about her past.

Oats and salad are good. Hope she sticks with it!

Funny! The spunky 4 foot 9 inch star has started on the Cookie Diet—a weight loss program that consists of eating six cookies a day made with natural hunger-suppressing ingredients such as oats and a healthy dinner. Instead of having steak for meals.

Snooki has a lot of talent and is obviously working hard to keep her figure. I admire her spunk.
