Kevin Smith Looking Svelte

Director and hockey jersey connoisseur Kevin Smith recently posed with his daughter after losing 85 pounds since Obama took office. It's unclear if this was a contributing factor.

Smith was inspired to lose the weight after he was kicked off a Southwest flight in 2010 for being too fat, which is definitely a wake up call. 

He doesn't credit a special diet or exercise routine. He just stopped drinking Big Gulps and stands up a lot, which should sound doable even to the chronically lazy:

"I learned how to lose weight while making a movie. The secret is to not eat sugar and stand all day. I never sit behind the monitor. I'm always moving now. I've been wearing a Jawbone bracelet and using the UP app to count my daily steps and every day this week, I've averaged 12,000. That's close to walking 5 miles a day."

There aren't a lot of free lunches in nature. Just on film sets. If you're trying to lose weight get off the couch and stop brushing your teeth with Fanta. Failing that you'll have to fly private.
