Snooki didn't always have the perfect body.
The MTV reality star opened up about her struggle with anorexia in her new book, Strong Is the New Sexy, admitting that she "starved" herself in high school and ate "just one cracker a day," dropping to 90 pounds.

"I was so weak and exhausted I could barely get through a practice," she revealed to Radar Online.
Thankfully, the former Jersey Shore star — who is mother to two children, Lorenzo, 3, and Giovanna, 1, with husband Jionni LaValle — is in much better shape these days, eating three meals a day along with snacks and focusing on remaining healthy and strong so she can care for her children.
She credits hitting the gym hard for her rapid weight loss after welcoming her daughter in 2014. "I lost most of the weight within days of giving birth, and could fit into my jeans after only two weeks," she admitted.
