Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is losing weight - with cookies.
The "Jersey Shore" star told Access Hollywood on Wednesday that she's already lost 5 pounds with Dr. Seigal's Cookie Diet, and hopes to lose 5-10 more.
"I actually noticed that celebrities were taking Dr. Seigal's Cookie Diet and I thought, 'This has got to work,'" she said.
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 eat six cookies a day and then I have like chicken for dinner, or fish," Snooki explained. "Something healthy."
She added that she's turned her mom onto the diet trend as well.
"She lost at least 10 pounds. So I helped my mom out," Snooki said.
With the second season of "Jersey Shore" returning to MTV on July 29, the star wants to look good when she hits the beach - or when she's meeting Jennifer Aniston or heading to the CMT Awards, as she did last week.
"I am a closet country fan. I love Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Josh Turner. Everybody there was so sweet. Legit, the best award show I've ever been to," Snooki said, adding of her superstar meeting, "Jennifer Aniston is the sweetest person ever."
