The ‘Jersey Shore’ star talks about her weight struggles, claiming she used to eat just one cracker a day!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may come off as a self confident, fist-pumping party girl on Jersey Shore, but the reality star battled an eating disorder throughout her teen years! Snooki opened up to OK! saying she used to eat nothing but salad and crackers during her high school years, weighing as little as 80 pounds! When that didn’t work, Snooki’s disorder became even more severe as she began binging and purging!

Snooki says her weight issues began her junior year in high school when she became intimidated by the younger and thinner girls on the cheerleading squad. She soon got herself down to a size 0 but after meeting with her doctor and learning she could die from the disease she turned her life around. “I love my life,” says the reality star. “I had just gotten too out of control.”

These days Snooki admits it is hard to eat healthy being on the road so much, but she tries to get to the gym when she can and hopes to be rocking a two piece by next summer!

I suffered with Anorexia when i was just 12 years old. I thought as myself as an ugly fat cow that needed to lose weight. Now I am a Sophomore and looking back; my life changed 100%
