Snooki says her dramatic weight loss was not the result of any unnatural products or practices, and that she's a lot healthier since she's shed 50 pounds.
"People are jerks," the 25-year-old says. "I don't look emaciated. I look healthy! My arms still jiggle when I wave! I'm 4-foot-9, which is the size of a third-grader."
"Weighing 96 pounds is normal for me!"
Snooki, who admitted weighing in at 146 pounds during her early Jersey Shore days, credits her slimmed-down figure to intense workouts at the gym.
