It’s hard to believe that fit mom and Dancing With the Stars contestant Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is the same woman who was once falling-down drunk on MTV’s Jersey Shore.
The former party girl opened up to Life & Style about her weight loss. The key to losing a third of her body weight? Giving up the empty calories in alcohol. “I don’t drink anymore.”
The slimmed-down celeb told the mag she began strength training five times a week for an hour and a half with trainer Anthony Michael, adding cardio on her own by running or taking spin classes at Flywheel or SoulCycle.

“I used to hate going to the gym, but now I love it,” she admits. “I lift very heavy weights, and I’m strong!”
DWTS is helping to keep her fit as well. “It's helping to keep my legs and everything else toned. Dancing is an amazing workout! I’m a size 0 and damn proud of it!”
There’s no calling Snooki a “meatball” now!
Catch the reality star waltzing away on DWTS every Monday on ABC at 8 p.m. ET and when Snooki & JWOWW premieres Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
