In an interview with the Insider, Snooki reveals that has she struggled with an eating disorder in the past.
"In high school, I really wouldn't eat. I would only have lunch, and I would only have salads. It got so crazy that I would only eat a cracker or a cucumber a day and I would feel full. I would go into the nurse's office every day and I would weigh myself. When she [the nurse] realized that I hit eighty pounds, she was like, this isn't good. My parents told me, you need to eat, this is very dangerous. So I gained my weight back to like 98 where I always was."
Her parents were extremely helpful when she was battling her food issues, but they are not pleased about her newfound fame.
"My mom is pretty upset about what she sees obviously as well my dad. I did warn them that a couple nights I got out of hand," said Snook. Then, added, "You probably would never guess that I used to go to church every week growing up and I was actually an altar girl."
She's just full of surprises! We just hope she makes her parents proud and puts some $$$$$ away!
That way, she can fist pump into retirement!
