All right y'all, I have something I need to get off of my chest: Snooki is just too skinny. But really though! She looked SMALLER than small at last night's MTV Movie Awards. After giving birth to little meatball Lorenzo, the former Jersey Shore star has lost 42 pounds the good ol' fashioned way: diet and exercise. The guidette recently flipped her lid after hearing rumors that she was anorexic. She countered them saying she eats ALL the time:
"I go to the gym five days a week and I eat healthy. I eat chicken, I eat salads, I eat vegetables ... one day a week I have my ice cream and my chips -- but the next day I go even harder at the gym."
I mean, it's good to have a healthy eating routine. It just sounds to me, though, that Snooki's pretty much trapped by hers. If ALL she's thinking about is when she can eat what, well, that doesn't sound like a fun way to live.
Being healthy is SO much more than just eating healthy. It sounds to me like Snooki is so consumed by eating healthy all of the time that she doesn't allow herself to actually live. What about the special occasions? What about the times when she just wants to have a cheeseburger? Are you telling me she just ignores ALL cravings because she wants to be "healthy"?
Plus, this whole workout thing sounds out of control! Going to the gym five days a week and making sure to go EXTRA hard the day after you have a few chips? I'm exhausted just thinking about living a life like that.
I firmly believe that a healthy lifestyle is one that doesn't limit your day-to-day. It's fine if you want to eat salads, vegetables, chicken, whatever. Heck, I love those things! But obsessing over eating them is NOT healthy. I think Snooki has come a long way and turned out to be an exceptional role model and a great mother. I just hope that all of this healthy nonsense doesn't go to her head.
Do you think Snooki is too strict with her diet?
