Star: ‘Snooki is 80 lbs, only consumes lettuce, egg whites, booze and laxatives’

snooks1 - Star: 'Snooki is 80 lbs, only consumes lettuce, egg whites, booze and laxatives'

The full story from Star Magazine:

Ever since Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi became a mom last August, she’s been shedding elements of her “Jersey Shore” persona, including her partying habit. But those close to her say that she may have shed a little too much lately: The 4’9″ former “meatball” has lost more than 42 lbs., attributing it to exercise — while friends claim she’s just plain starving herself. “All she eats is lettuce and egg whites,” says a source. “most of her calories come from booze, and she uses laxatives too. It’s scary. She looks emaciated, and everyone is worried sick.”

Snooki has been trying to hide her unhealthy behavior, but at a March 16 event in New York City that she attended with BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley, her pals saw the evidence firsthand. “We all watched as Snooki refused the bread and then pretended to eat salad,” says an insider. “JWoww said to her, ‘Honey, you need to start eating something; this is ridiculous,’ but Snooki just gave her a blank stare. All she did was drink wine.”

Even Pauly D expressed concern at a recent event in Las Vegas over his former costar’s dramatically thinner figure, which she has been flaunting nonstop on twitter. While on the show, he recalls, “Snooki told us all how she had battled an eating disorder in high school. We knew after that we were never allowed to talk about her weight.

Snooki’s past struggles with food may be all the more reason to suspect that he’s in trouble, according to New York psychiatrist Dr. Wendy Wolfson, who specializes in eating disorders. “Because she’s admitted to having a disorder when she was young, I’d be concerned by her rapid weight loss,” Dr. Wolfson says. “There’s a high likelihood of relapse under stress, and having a child can cause that kind of stress.”

Weight-loss expert Alicia Hunter agrees. “Snooki looks to weight between 80 lbs. and 84 lbs.,” she says. “Even at her size, this is extremely low. It’s obvious from her pointy chin and jutting collarbone that the last thing she should do is try to lose any more weight!”

A step back in time – Snooki back in 2011:

Yeah I mean again, whoever this person is, I don’t watch tv, I think she is reality person, whoever she is, weight loss is not going to save her. Her hair is virgin, but too long and stringy that long length always looks outdated on women…..her face is negligible, she has no muscle definition and is still not very lean…….she is not blessed w/ a decent height….I think she might be trying to compensate for being average, by losing weight, like a lot of average women will do, they might get implants, or bleach hair, anything to get attention b/c… Read more »

And yes Joy agree 100% . I feel really bad for snooki, She looks very frail, it would be awful to be a s—ty celeb/famous.

true…i think she looks good like this but she could maintain it w/o the boooooooooooze. wtf, booze and laxatives?
beer makes you poo but it’s because of what’s made of, not the alcohol. alcohol does the opposite so yep, wine is bad. drink 0 alcohol beer and stick to the lettuce, egg whites and fruits and vegs overall and add some fibers.

“” I think there may be a reason that I can’t upload a pic/open account…keeps me out of ‘fights’?” … How are those logic skills treating you?

No virgin hair here! She’s dyed it a few times.. and I guess she’s always wearing extensions (from what I’ve seen on TV)

80 pounds ins’t underweight for her height…shes friggin 4’9″…i’m 5’4″ and around 110, so by these standards im more underweight than her…please.

Ela
Guest

Lol! 4’9” and 80 pounds IS underweight with a BMI of 17 and you are at a healthy weight at 5’4” and 110 pounds with a BMI of 19.

lillaliket
Guest
lillaliket

I’m not that great with inches and lbs but wouldn’t that give her a BMI of just under 18 and you just under 19? not that it matters.. just wondering if I calculated correctly? and I think the main issue isn’t what she weighs, but the supposedly unhealthy ways she is losing it.

MissMarilyn
Member
MissMarilyn

Snookie is 17.3

mary is 18.9

also i think mary might be using the 5 pounds for every inch rule, right? that actually is not accurate.

mary
Guest
mary

Yes, i was using the 5 lb per inch rule, i suppose not the most accurate…just what i have always went by (what my doctors have told me) but everyones frame is different…i guess what i was trying to say is she doesnt LOOK underweight in the above pics, but if she is in fact eating that little clearly its not natural or healthy for her

serena
Guest
serena

The 5 lbs per inch rule is bs; for example 5 ft 100 lbs is a completely different bmi than 5’5 125 lbs – BMI is flawed too but better than using 5 lbs/inch. Anyway I agree with you she does not look underweight, I am guessing she is 90 lbs which is ok for her height, she is so petite.

mary
Guest
mary

@serena, true i have never went by bmi cause I am big boned…i think bf% is the most accurate and important indicator of health…as far as bmi goes, someone like serena williams would be considered way overweight, but in reality she is in fantastic shape with a great body fat ratio. i guess there is no “one size fits all” approach to health and fitness, as everyones body is made differently

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

Yeah, it won’t be as much as 5lb per inch when dealing with such low weights/BMI’s. Maybe 4lb per inch, which doesn’t sound like much difference, but it means 5ft4, 110lb is more comparable to 4ft9 and 82lb rather than, say, 75lb. I don’t think Snookie looks borderline underweight because she has big b❆❆bs and a small frame/low muscle mass. I, too, would have guessed 90lb.

MissMarilyn
Member
MissMarilyn
5 pounds per inch = not at all reliable BMI = meh. its ok. the really only reason why BMI is really really bad is when you’re dealing with athletes, because muscle weighs WAY more than fat does! otherwise its generally ok… except there are always a few exceptions (ie not everyone under 18 is unhealthy and neither is everyone over 25) I agree that body fat percentage is one of the best indicators but its also harder to measure unless you have one of the actual machines that do it. it also kind of depends on what you’re trying… Read more »

Bmi is flawed too and there was even an article about it how tall peoples bmis are lower than it says and short people have higher bmis than calculated. It may be decent for judging if someone is obese, but ive noticed 5 ft women with say a 19 bmi look larger than a 6ft woman with the same bmi.

serena
Guest
serena
@Candy that is because the shorter you are, the more vertically compressed your body is, making you appear less lean (each additional pound shows up more on a short frame). BMI is flawed and works better as a guideline than rigidly applied. It’s better to measure body fat % and of course blood/urine sample tests which say a lot about your health. Even without a doctor I think you can tell a lot about your health just from your level of cardio fitness or strength (believe it or not a lot of adults, even of healthy weight, can’t even jog… Read more »

Hi– just because you think your problem is bigger than hers doesn’t mean hers isn’t a problem. If you think you’re underweight, I encourage you to work on your health, but don’t bring down another person who is sick.

mary
Guest
mary

i dont think i am underweight by any means, can you read? that is MY POINT, i was comparing her weight to mine and by inches and weight we are comparable and in a healthy range. where do you get from my comment that I think i have a problem? look up sarcasm in the dictionary.

HB
Guest

No need to get aggressive, Mary. And… “by these standards im more underweight than her”

HB
Guest

And the point really was that someone else’s problems aren’t based on you.

mary
Guest
mary

you are right, i apologize for being snippy my first comment was just sarcastic, meaning i dont think snookie is any more underweight than i am. i just get defensive when people say i am underweight, its a sore topic bc i used to be 160+ pounds and lost a ton (in a healthy way over a year!) and bc i am big boned, i have protruding hips, collar bones, etc and so many people tell me i am too thin but im not…im actually 8 week preggers now and healthy enough to carry a child so…

HB

I understand. Congratulations– 50 lbs in a huge loss, and having a baby I’m sure is going to be beautiful! I think we just had a misunderstanding, I’m sorry if it sounded like I was calling you out.

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

@ HB

That’s because BMI uses the square of the height rather than the cube of the height. However, there is a good reason for this. Tall people’s frames are not just perfectly scaled up versions of shorter people’s frames. Taller people, generally speaking, have narrower frames in relation to their height than shorter people’s.

Does she drink too much? probably. Does she restrict her calories? probably. However, this article is clearly an exaggeration. She’s been getting *a lot* of positive attention since losing weight, so it wouldn’t surprise me at all if she’s been restricting to maintain, or even lose more weight, but there is no way for us to tell if she has an ED – especially not based on this story!

So glad im not the only one who thinks so. I always roll my eyes in my mind whenever i see that statement.

My friends 4.10,38-40 kgs and she does not look underweight at all. She has a petite curvy figure. And she eats well, I guess you cant always rely on numericals to dictate your health.

Alicia better check herself. Snooks and I the same height, and when I weighed that, my arms were serious sticks. 80 was the weight she said she got down to in high school. It doesn’t look like this by any stretch of the imagination, even taking into account frame size.

Really? I dunno. I’m 5’2 and a pear so in my case it’s true i’d have to get pretty darn thin to have thin legs but I have a lot of friends who are more sort of straight shaped and some of them have absolutely tiny legs like they are around 45kg, look pretty thin to me

anushka

Im a 5ft pear,45 kgs. And i guess it’s just my observation then, longer legs to me look slimmer. Does this make sense?

serena
Guest

Star Magazine is crap and I wish Ver.sus would stop featuring their quotes because they only spread vile gossip. Yes Snooki has lost weight but she’s not 80 lbs, that’s underweight even for a 4’8″ girl. Snooki is probably closer to 90 lbs at this point, she does not look too thin. She is from Chile and women of that region are often built like this, super petite and small all over.

Marie

TSAC

She looks so much better skinnier! I’m 4’11 and know what it’s like to have EVERY extra pound be seen. Hopefully she’s keeping the weight off in a healthy way, but honestly I would love to be at her weight. (I have a small frame and 85 lbs at my height, despite the low BMI, wouldn’t be unhealthy for me; I’m asian and my aunts/relatives are all that size).

TSAC
Guest

BTW, she’s NOT 80 lbs. No way in hell. With her build, probably 90 ish.

Angie

She looks a lot better now whatever she’s doing. It would suck to be that short – you can’t get away with eating junk food because it will show the next day!

Candy M.
Guest
Candy M.

If she’s only consuming egg whites and lettuce that can’t add up to more than 200 hundred calories a day. I don’t know if this true but thats amazingly unhealthy. She doesn’t look lean despite a lower weight meaning she’s lost muscle. Judge by body fat percent more than weight. Being 30 percent body and “skinny” is much worse to me than being heavier. Think Lindsay Lohan- skinny fat.

Veronique

Veronique

It’s hard to say if she looks underweight or not, she’s got those gigantic fake b❆❆bs which makes it difficult to judge her frame, but her waist looks teeny and she’s got that bobblehead thing going on…she looks better than she did…

solaxia
Guest
solaxia

I think she looks great at this weight! I just hope it is a healthy weight loss and I really hope that the diet posted is not her real diet! I like her with less makeup too. I don’t think she should lose much more though…She has slim arms, a flat tummy and nice legs…though she’s always had pretty nice legs no matter what size imo. In the way that they were solid (mine would be full of cellulite at her highest weight), and they were quite shapely and nicely shaped.

Candy M.
Guest
Candy M.

Im 6’1 and 135 lbs giving me a higher bmi than her yet she looks bigger. EIther this magazine is lying ( surprise surprise) or bmi is very messes up.

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

That’s because in terms of proportions alone, she’d have to be around 64lb with a completely identical frame for her height to look exactly the same as you! However, when people get taller, their frames tend to get more long than wide and so BMI accounts for this. Hence, 82lb at 4ft9 is comparable to 135lb at 6ft1 (using BMI), although you would look more narrow in relation to the length. That said, she does look heavier than 80lb, even for her height, but I think that’s because of her body type, especially the huge b~~~~!

serena
Guest
serena

I agree with almost everything you said but Snooki is not 80 lbs, more like 90 lbs which would give Candy the lower BMI. People underestimate how much short women weigh because as you decrease height, each pound counts more and more – In other words 5 lbs makes a bigger difference at 4’9″ than it would at 5’5″. This is why it’s more noticeable when short women gain OR lose weight.

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

Oh, I agree she looks more than 80lb and may well be 90lb. But I’d say that a lot of the time people overestimate the weight of shorter woman, not underestimate, because they are comparing their taller selves and find it hard to comprehend that someone who looks bigger than them for the height could potentially weigh less than them.

Sophie
Guest
Sophie

What I don’t get about BMI is that when I compare mine with supermodels like the VS models who it is often said online their BMI’s are around 17, i’d have to weigh like 43kg (Im short) to I spose look as slim. But what? I think I’d look pretty terrible at that weight as I have a medium frame. It confuses me how they can look healthy though?

kateuk
Guest
kateuk

Sophie, I believe a lot of the VS models have very small frames for their height. It’s like they have the same build as a much shorter woman, yet they are significantly taller. So with only the increase in height but not build, their BMI’s will be lower.

serena
Guest
serena

Plus some of weights listed on the model agency sites are wrong. Adriana Lima is often listed at 120 lbs but her fitness trainer stated she is 135 lbs. That’s a healthy BMI of 19.4. The super thin catwalk models are of course underweight.

Mew
Guest

I wouldn’t be surprised if she had a relapse and that was pretty much all she ate. Some eating disordered ppl who gain weight and “get better” have still that tiny voice in their heads telling them they should lose weight. She’s been on this diet and that diet and been almost more famous about her diets than her reality show or horrible style. And now she “finally made it” and got thin. For an eating disordered person that’s all that matters.

If that’s her diet, she really should get help. There’s a baby to think about now.

as someone who has mostly recovered from her ED I can tell you that recovery is very very very difficult and sometimes the little voice can pop up into your head when you least expect it. i am afraid of what pregnancy will be like for me because i am afraid of that voice coming back since i know that even if my body weight stays the same I will not be able to tell because the scale will tell me otherwise. im afraid of not being able to differentiate between my weight and the baby’s weight and freaking out… Read more »

80-84 is reasonable for someone under 5ft… though with her past struggle with an eating disorder there is a fine line between losing some weight and getting in shape and going overboard/getting carried away without realizing. So I hope she has a good grasp of things this time around.
