Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is disgusted with the cruel media fat-shaming that celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson endured during their pregnancies.

''Just look at how Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian were tracked and criticized in the media. Awful!" said Polizzi. "Worrying about weight gain made the nine months even harder. The one bright spot of pregnancy was eating whatever you wanted.''

Polizzi took aim at the media weight bullying in her book, Baby Bumps: From Party Girl to Proud Mama, where she slammed tabloids for putting unnecessary pressure on pregnant celebrities to stay skinny while pregnant and then lose all their baby weight in record time after delivery.

"So much is made in the media about celebrity pregnancy weight gain," wrote Snooki. “If you weren’t on the cover of 'In Touch' in a bikini within two months of giving birth to talk about your salsa workout, you were a fat, lazy loser. Tabloid monitoring of how fast women lose the baby weight is practically a blood sport."

Polizzi, 26, suffered from anorexia during high school and admitted she worried about pregnancy weight gain, but easily lost 50 pounds through diet and exercise. Snooki now works out every morning doing a combination of weight-training and cardio exercise.

The 4-foot-9 Snooki, who tipped the scales at 146 pounds during her pregnancy, slimmed down to 96 pounds less than a year after giving birth to son Lorenzo in August 2012. Polizzi followed a 1,200-calorie-a-day diet and drastically cut back on processed junk foods and alcohol.

Polizzi said becoming a mother inspired her to embrace a healthy, active lifestyle. "I want to set a good example for my baby, eat healthy, work out," she said. "I hardly drink anymore."
