Snooki Opens Up on Anorexia Battle

by at . Comments

Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has no trouble eating nowadays. If there are pickles around late night, watch out! But just a few years ago, she was anorexic.

She actually battled both anorexia and bulimia as she tried to maintain a small size for the cheerleading squad. This was serious stuff and extremely unhealthy for her.

Anorexic Snooki

“It started when I was a junior [in high school],” Snooki explains to OK! Magazine. “The reason I did it is because I was very self-consicous about cheerleading."

Insecure Snooki says it happened because "There were these little freshman girls ... I was scared that these little freshman girls were going to take my spot.”

“I just started eating salads and salads,” she tells OK!. “But then I got to a point where I was just eating a cracker a day. And I was down to just 80 pounds.”

Fortunately, she's turned things around since then. As for her obsessions with tanning booths, daytime drunkenness and promiscuity, we've got work to do.

She is such a fake. She turned everything around by stuffing her face with Mcdonalds and KFC probably.
