The ‘Jersey Shore’ star once famous for falling down drunk, has totally transformed her life since giving birth to a baby boy in August 2012. We’re gonna need to figure out a new nickname — ‘Meatball’ isn’t cutting it anymore! Keep reading to find out how she did it.
Who would have guessed that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi could be so dedicated and stick to such a demanding workout regimen!
But that’s what she’s done in the six months since giving birth to her son Lorenzo LaValle. By devoting herself to a strict fours-day-a-week program, Snooki has managed to lose 42 pounds! “I lost it for me,” she tells Us Weekly, “but I also wanted Jionni know I can be hot as a mom.”
Snooki Loses 42 Pounds — How She Did It
The first pounds were the easiest to shed, according to Snooki: “I lost the first 20 in two months, just from breast-feeding.” The next 22 were not as easy.
Snooki made sure to get to the gym four days a week with her trainer Anthony Michael, to work on strength-training and cardio. The team did plyometric work like jumping on and off elevated boxes, followed by 20 to 30 minutes of inclined walking on a treadmill.
Snooki also did added cardio twice a week with Zumba or kickboxing.
Snooki Goes On A Healthy Diet
But her workout schedule wasn’t the only thing she had to change — she also altered her diet! “When I started working with Anthony, he put me on his Express Home Meals.” The meal plan included dishes like lettuce-wrapped burgers and chicken with strawberries. Snooki makes sure to stay under 1,300 calories per day.
Her secret? “I eat through the day so I don’t get hungry.”
The 4’9″ Jersey Shore star now weighs in at a lean 102 pounds, and though she says she feels great, she also says the hard work isn’t over: “I still have the mommy pooch to get rid of, and I want my upper legs to be more toned. And my boobs are messed up. In a bra, they look good. But when I take it off, they’re all flappy.”
Well, we hope she can get all that sorted out! But if she was determined enough to shed her boozing lifestyle and become a mother and get fit, then we think she can do anything!
