Kevin Smith is going to have to change the name of his superhero podcast, “Fatman on Batman”. Why you ask? Well guys, because he’s not the Fat Man anymore, folks! He’s going to have to find a character to discuss whose name rhymes with “Thin Man” because only six months after his heart attack, Kevin Smith lost a ridiculous 51 pounds and the photos he’s posted to Twitter and Instagram are absolutely stunning.
6 months ago yesterday, I had a heart attack. The Doctor told me to lose 50 pounds, but I have a problem doing what I’m told. So I lost 51 pounds instead. Read about it here: https://t.co/4qDos9qgJx pic.twitter.com/oLEkNdVJov

Kevin Smith posted a Tweet concerning the event, saying that he was told to lose 50 pounds by his doctor a week after his heart attack… but the rascal hates following rules, so he lost 51 pounds. Smirk! The director of everything from Clerks II to Clerks then posted an inspiring Instagram, showing his weight loss, and ascribing his stunning body change to Weight Watchers and, of course, the inspiration and support of his fans, who by telling him he was starting to look better, dropping from 256 pounds to 205, adding:
” This is the lightest I’ve been since high school! My hope now is I can slowly lose another 10 with #weightwatchers and get down to my birth weight of 195! But for now, I’m ecstatic to have reached this chunky milestone!”
Kevin Smith also attributes his daughter Harley’s influence on his new diet, and talks about how it’s now a mostly plant based one, which is hard for him because he “hates vegetables”, saying:
“I also wanna thank my kid @harleyquinnsmith – the little vegan astronaut who explored this meatless/milkless galaxy ahead of me, leading by example. Since I never wanted to see the inside of a hospital ever again, I simply copied the Kid. So this wasn’t a diet: these results came from a total lifestyle change of eating solely plant-based foods (which is tough because I hate vegetables).”
We want to congratulate Kevin Smith on his weight loss, and remember, if the director of “Yoga Hosers” can do it… maybe… you ga hosers can do it too! Be inspired by Smith! Thin Man on Lin Man(uel Miranda). That’s right, now that he’s thin, he might have to start talking about Lin Manuel Miranda now!
