The tiny little powerhouse from Jersey Shore known as Snooki wants to lose some weight. At a petite 4’10″ tall, 110 pounds is a lot for her, stating that she used to be a fit cheerleader at 90 pounds. To drop her goal of 10 pounds, she’s going to follow the Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet.
Watch now as she talks about her unhealthy habits that helped her put on the weight, and why Dr. Siegal agrees that on someone of her size ten pounds is reasonable.

Last week we told you the dumbfounding story of Donna Simpson, who is trying very hard to become the heaviest woman in the world. Currently weighing more than 600 pounds, she consumes 12,000 calories a day to help her achieve her goal. That’s what some adults should eat in an entire week. A 2007 Guinness Book of World Records title holder for being the world’s biggest mother, Donna has the support of her boyfriend in this catastrophic endeavor.
As people near and far to this New Jersey resident reach out begging her to rethink her “project,” if you will, one weight loss professional is putting his money where her mouth is in an attempt to stop what he calls “a prolonged suicide.”
Dr. Sanford Siegal is the world-renowned weight-loss expert behind the popular Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet, a meal replacement program that provides fiber- and protein-rich cookies and shakes.

Oh, to be a celebrity who is a celebrity for the sake of being a celebrity. Kim Kardashian, who stars in the E! channel’s hit reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is well paid. Kardashian has a contract with in-stream advertising company Ad.ly to plug products, reportedly for an obscene amount of money – $10,000 per tweet!

Last October, it is alleged that Kardashian tweeted that Dr. Sanford Siegal was “falsely promoting” that she was on the Cookie Diet. “Not true! I would never do this unhealthy diet! I do QuickTrim!,” is what she allegedly posted on her Twitter page. “If this Dr. Siegal is lying about me being on this diet, what else are they lying about? Not cool!”
