Snooki is definitely well-fed these days, but back in high school it was another story. In a new interview with Ok! magazine, Snooks opens up about her battle with anorexia.
She details when it began, and how she started skipping meals. “It started when I was a junior,” Snooki explains. “The reason I did it is because I was very self-consicous about cheerleading.”
There were these little freshman girls, and I was scared that these little freshman girls were going to take my spot.”
Only standing 4’9”, we can imagine it’s easy for Snooki to put on weight. So that’s why she started watching what she was eating. “I just started eating salads and salads,” she says.
But it started getting worse after that. She recalls, “Then I got to a point where I was just eating a cracker a day.”
“And I was down to 80 pounds. I almost died.”
That’s pretty scary, even on a girl as short as she is. She may not be a perfect weight now, but she’s obviously a lot healthier now than she was with an eating disorder. Keep eating those fried pickles, girl!
