Snooki of the Jersey Shore Goes on the Cookie Diet and Gives Up Binge Drinking

Are You More Likely to Try a Fad Diet or Give Up Drinking to Lose Weight?

The petite Snooki has put on some pounds, and told Us Weekly, "I used to be fit. Now I look at myself, and I'm like, 'What the hell happened?'" To battle the bulge, she's taking a two-pronged approach: Snooki is following Dr. Siegal's cookie diet and is giving up binge drinking. The four-foot-nine Jersey Shore star is limiting her food to one meal a day plus six protein-fortified, appetite-suppressing cookies — which doesn't sound like the healthiest way to shed weight to me. On the healthier side of things, Snooki also said, "If I go out I am going to have a drink, but I am not going to have 10 drinks like I usually would."

There are many ways to approach weight loss, but as you know, I'm not a fan of fad diets and believe that slow and steady lifestyle changes are the way to go. I do applaud Snooki for cutting down on the drinking; not only are alcoholic beverages full of empty calories, drinking more than one drink a day is not good for a woman's health.

I'm curious about you all, which of these techniques is more your style?

I know fad diets are not the way to go, and I normally don't do them... but I would rather not give up alcohol. I can cut down, but if we're talking totally giving up alcohol, no ma'am. =D

Major brands always give out their popular brand samples (in a way it is similar to coupons) I alway use qualityhealth to get mine http://bit.ly/bhhLUy enjoy your free samples

Any time my jeans start getting tight I just scale back to 1600 calories a day; That's tough for me, but it always works. As for drinking...Mormon. Need I type more?

I suppose if I binge-drank like Snooki does, giving it up would probably make me lose weight, but I only drink about 60-100 calories' worth of booze a day and I probably wouldn't give it up because it relaxes me. I'd be more likely to just cut a few treats out of my diet. Snooki's "cookie diet" sounds incredibly stupid to me, but whatever...I'm pretty sure she's not extremely concerned about her health.

I chose everything in moderation. BTW, I know the Jersey Shore is annoying, but I love Snooki. She is so clueless and cute. There's something so wide eyed about her that my boyfriend and I can't help but go "Awww, poor Snooki" when she gets into her shananigans on the show.

Can we please stop hearing about the Jersey Shore people? Please? I'm so over them. But related to the actual question, I've recently given up soda to one every ten days. I don't drink alcohol enough (once a month, maybe?) to have that make a difference.

I chose "everything in moderation," but if I had to choose one, I would obviously give up drinking (although, when I was in college, I may have chosen otherwise).

I have given up drinking to lose weight. Calories are not my main reason... I get hangovers very easily and it keeps me from sticking to my workout routine.

I chose "Give Up Drinking"... even though I don't drink, but it my life I suppose it would mean "Give up cookies" or something like that.... haha

How did the Jersey Shore become so friggin popular? I still don't get it. And I have given up drinking in order to lose weight and it helped. Now that I am at the weight I want to be, I drink in moderation and its only wine or vodka with club, no sugary drinks unless I make them at home the way I like them with as little sugar as possible.
