Director Kevin Smith credited a sugar-free diet for his 85-pound weight loss and improved health.
Smith, who has struggled with weight his entire life, said his weight loss secrets were a sugar-free diet and lots of walking, Examiner reported.
Smith credited the documentary Fed Up for motivating him to cut sugar out of his diet.
“Awesome documentary, an anti-sugar documentary that completely changed my perception,” said Kevin. “When I stopped drinking [sugary] sodas and juice, the pounds just started flying off.”
Smith, 44, tweeted a stunning before-and-after photo of himself posing alongside daughter Harley Quinn Smith. The dramatic photo showcased Kevin’s jaw-dropping 85-pound weight loss (see below).
“Left: me and my kid in 2008. Right: 2 weeks ago, 85 pounds later,” Kevin tweeted.
In 2010, Smith made headlines after being kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for being “too fat to fly.” A furious Kevin launched an epic Twitter feud with the airline, saying he did fit in the plane seat.
“Dude, I know I’m fat,” Smith said. “I fit perfectly in the seat. I am not fat enough to eject off a Southwest flight.”
Kevin said he vented publicly despite the embarrassment it caused him because he wanted Southwest Airlines to change the way it deals with overweight passengers. Southwest later apologized to Kevin for kicking him off the flight and offered him a refund.
Smith is a prolific actor, writer and producer, as well as the director of “Clerks,” “Mallrats”, “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.”
In 2011, Kevin Smith directed and starred in a documentary chronicling his weight loss struggles called Too Fat For 40.
