Snooki Cookie Diet

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — the resident pint-sized spitfire raising cain on MTV’s hit reality series Jersey Shore — is shedding the pounds with the help of cookies.

Snooks has lost five pounds since adopting Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet earlier this month — and she hopes to lose up to 10 more. The diet – which cuts out breakfast and lunch in favor of the doctor’s specially baked cookies — cuts calories down to 1,000-1,200 a day.

“I actually noticed that celebrities were taking Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet and I thought, ‘This has got to work,'” the well-gelled guidette explains. “I eat six cookies a day and then I have like chicken for dinner, or fish. Something healthy.”

Do we smell an endorsement deal in someone’s future?
