Jersey Shore reality Star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi looks amazing after dropping 50 pounds in six months. The former hard drinking party girl has become the model of sobriety and health since becoming a mom in 2012.
Snooki recently opened up about how she achieved her amazing lifestyle turn-around. “I basically just got my ass to the gym and ate healthy.It’s a simple formula but one that has paid off handsomely for the Jersey Shore reality star. The biggest turn-around, however, came with he decision to stop drinking.The key to losing the weight was giving up the empty calories that are in all those alcoholic beverages. They really add up and in one night you can end up consuming up to 2,000 calories in just tasty drinks. Not to mention, after drinking with your girls all you want to do is go home and eat tons of junk food! So if you give up the alcohol you’ll begin to see changes immediately!!!”
However, Snooki’s been reminiscing about being thinner. She’s been posting throwback Instagram pictures, writing: “Throw back to that time I was shredded” on a picture of her in animal print leggings while showing off her toned arms. But Snooki is working hard to stay in shape. She’s been posting videos of herself working with her personal trainer.
So what are Snooki’s diet and fitness secrets? After giving birth to Lorenzo in 2012, she lost 42 pounds in six months by eating 13,000 calories per day and working out four days per week for 45 minutes with Anthony Michael. She also went through a dramatic weight loss when she gave birth to Giovanna in 2014. Snooki started working with Anthony Michael to get down to 107 pounds. She started by walking then went onto weight training, cardio and plyometrics. She also went on Anthony Michael’s diet.
Snooki also revealed she takes her kids out to get exercise, works out with friends and her sister-in-law, and even has a gym in her house in case she can’t make it to the gym. Snooki also sticks to a healthy diet. She doesn’t eat carbs and eats pre-packaged meals with lean protein and vegetables.“Even though I want to be healthy for myself and it feels great to be healthy, I mainly want to do it for my kids,” she told People. “I just really want to be a fit mom. I want to be able to keep up with them, run after them.”
