Snooki's rapid post-baby weight loss

Reality TV star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has managed to lose her weight fast. How? Breastfeeding!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 24, only recently gave birth, and she looks great — as you can see in this recent instagram photo she tweeted. It seems she’s lost all the weight in, what, four weeks?

How’d she do it? “Breast feeding helped a lot,” she tweeted earlier this week. “And eating healthy/walking.”

Wow. Who would have thought the Jersey Shore/Snooki & JWOWW star would become a poster girl for breastfeeding and a healthy lifestyle? I told you she’s not as bad as she’s led us to believe….

I don’t know about you, but I GAINED weight breastfeeding. So, for those of you who are scratching your heads at the notion of losing weight fast from breastfeeding: I’m with you. My doctor even told me that some women are actually predisposed hormonally to gain weight while breastfeeding. So definitely don’t despair if the weight’s not falling off for you like it is for Snooki or any celebrity for that matter.
