He’s steering clear of all those tempting desserts.
Kevin Smith is committed to a healthy lifestyle after suffering a massive heart attack two months ago and he took to Instagram on Wednesday to document that on Wednesday.
‘Same dude, different day. Pic on the left, is from nearly 10 years ago, at Zack & Miri premiere. Pic on the right is minutes ago,’ the 47-year-old filmmaker captioned the before and after photos he shared.

‘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,’ he continued.
‘But I’m on a diet. 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 of control and me under control,’ The Clerks director wrote.
‘It’ll help keep the cake on the plate instead of in my maw. #KevinSmith #FitterButBitter #diet.’
The weight’s dropping off: The 47-year-old filmmaker shared this social media selfie on April 3 as he proudly announced, ‘Down 30 pounds today 20 more to go’
As previously reported, Kevin revealed that he nearly died on February 25 after having a heart attack backstage in the break between two comedy gigs in Glendale, Los Angeles.
It was caused by a complete blockage of his left anterior descending artery and required emergency surgery.
‘After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack,’ he tweeted at the time. ‘The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka ‘the Widow-Maker’).

‘If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!’
Kevin first showed off his weight loss last month on social media, telling his 1.2 million followers that he was down 26 pounds, thanks to the potato diet that helped magician Penn Jillette lose 100 pounds.
‘Down 26 pounds today! Started March 8th and now 4 weeks later, I’ve lost a small child worth of weight!’ Kevin wrote alongside a selfie.
At his happy place: He celebrated his new lease of life by taking wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, 46, and their daughter Harley Quinn, 18, to Disneyland, Anaheim, Ca., on March 27
‘Doc told me to lose 50 pounds and I’m now over halfway to that goal! Ironically, this heart attack was the best thing that ever happened to my health!’
He celebrated his new lease of life by taking his wife of nearly 20 years, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, 46, and their 18-year-old daughter Harley Quinn Smith to Disneyland, Anaheim, Ca., on March 27.
‘You just survived a heart attack! What do you wanna do next? ”I’m going to @disneyland!”,’ Kevin wrote in the caption .
