Kevin Smith Shares Shocking Weight Loss Photo After Heart Attack

Kevin Smith Shares Shocking Weight Loss Photo Months After Heart Attack

Kevin Smith is losing weight.

This should probably come as no surprise, given the 47-year-old writer, actor, and all-around funny guy suffered a “massive heart attack” near the end of February. For years Smith has struggled with his weight, and although he’s certainly slimmer than his fattest days a decade ago, there’s nothing like a near-death experience to push you that extra mile toward fitness.

Smith has been sharing his weight loss journey on Instagram after coming home from the hospital, and recently shared a side-by-side comparison of himself at the Zack & Miri Make A Porno premiere from a decade ago and a picture of him today.

Same dude, different day,” Smith wrote to caption his now characteristic look of shocked surprise at the camera. “Pic on the left, is from nearly 10 years ago, at Zack & Miri premiere. Pic on the right is minutes ago. I was in Manhattan yesterday - a city that’s legendary for its amazing variety of food and eating options, where you could dine out here every night your entire life and never have to eat at the same restaurant twice. It’s a land of food glorious food... but I’m on a diet.”

Smith, who went vegetarian following the heart attack, continued: “So even though they served what looked like an amazing buttercream cake at the @amc_tv event I went to last night, I didn’t indulge. And next time I gotta stare down a meal the old me would’ve inhaled, I’ll look at these two images of me out on control and me under control. It’ll help keep the cake on the plate instead of in my maw. #KevinSmith #FitterButBitter #diet.”

Smith is already down 30 pounds after starting his diet on March 8th. According to his Instagram post from earlier this month, his doctor ordered him to lose 50 pounds. To that end, he switched to a vegetarian diet and forsook all sweets and candies that would normally magically find their way into his mouth.

Or at least, that’s probably how Smith would describe it.

Keep it up, Kevin! You’re almost there!
