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.
“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.
