Snooki Shows Off Weight Loss, Slams Reports Claiming She's Using Laxatives & Starving Herself (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Snooki recently made headlines boasting her 42-pound weight loss after giving birth last August, and now she's slamming reports that she's been using dangerous means to lose the weight.

The 25-year-old reality star, who showed off her newly slim figure in a black minidress at an event last week, has Star magazine claiming she looks "emaciated," and their sources allege that "all she eats is lettuce and egg whites."

"Most of her calories come from booze, and she uses laxatives too. It’s scary. She looks emaciated, and everyone is worried sick," the source told the tabloid

While Snooki has spoken about how she battled anorexia as a teenager, she's insisting she lost the weight in a healthy way this time. On April 10, she slammed Star's report on Twitter, first making fun of the allegations, tweeting:

And later she defended herself again:

Last month, the former "Jersey Shore" star appeared on "The Dr. Oz Show," where she discussed her weight loss:

"I don't consider myself to be, like, a 'celebrity mom.' I don't even consider myself famous. I just think I'm well known. And I'm very relatable, I feel. And I'm just a normal girl doing normal things," she explained. "If I can lose 42 pounds after giving birth six months [ago], I mean, anybody could do it. You just need the dedication, and you need to want to have your body back."
