EntertainmentJay and Silent Bob's Kevin Smith Feels ’Wonderful' After 58-Lb. Weight Loss
Kevin Smith Shares His Shocking 10-Year Weight Loss Transformation -- Pics
The actor and comedian showcased his drastic transformation in a before and after photo.
“I started at 256, and I’m 198. So what is that, 58 at this point?” the WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) ambassador, 48, shares exclusively with Us Weekly. “I honestly never thought I’d get to even 200, so getting under it is crazy town.”
The director, who announced that he had dropped 51 pounds in August, said that while he feels “wonderful,” shedding the pounds was more about health than appearances. “I just want to stress to those out there who care, it was never about dropping the weight. I wasn’t sitting there like ‘I wanna look good!'” he told Us. “It was about ‘Get this out of your system.’”
Confederate 'Silent Sam' monument's pedestal removed from UNC campus
Remnants of the monument were removed Tuesday, but the controversy over "Silent Sam" was far from over. The statue itself, constructed in 1913 in homage to "the sons of the university who entered the war of 1861-65 in answer to the call of their country," was toppled in August by protesting students. A pedestal and plaque remained in place and the statue in storage while school officials debated the memorial's fate. School Chancellor Carol Folt on Monday ordered the removal of the pedestal and announced her resignation, effective at the end of the academic year.
The filmmaker’s biggest wakeup call came after he nearly died after a comedy show in February 2018. “After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack,” he captioned a Twitter photo of himself in a hospital bed on February 26. “The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka ‘the Widow-Maker’),” he wrote. “If I hadn’t canceled show 2 go to the hospital, I would’ve died. But for now, I’m still above ground!”
Smith discussed his methods for getting in shape and lowering his cholesterol with Us. “You know, the secret’s [really] simple. Eat green and it just falls off,” he quips. “Like, the thing is for me … it’s the culture of eating. … We’re trained to believe that we have to eat three meals a day and stuff. And that’s just blatantly not true. And in terms of what a meal is, it changes all the time based on what we’re sold from the outside world like the food pyramid which changes periodically.”
Smith-Pelly starts in return to Chicago after racist taunts
Washington forward Devante Smith-Pelly got the start in his first game in Chicago since the black forward heard chants of "basketball, basketball, basketball" while he was sitting in the penalty box during the third period of a 7-1 loss last February. The fans were promptly ejected, and then banned from Chicago's home games. "For me it was really something that was important to do," Reirden said. "What happened with him last year in this building and where we are today in our world.
He continued: “You have to change your way of thinking about food. I used to eat to entertain, eat to reward. … I work hard all day or as hard as I work, do a lot of things and at the end of the night, hit the bed with a bunch of food and watch a movie. And for two hours, feed … and that’s late at night. It’s not like, then I got up and went running. I was sedentary and food was a reward. It made me feel happy, that was my entertainment.”
Now, the “Jay & Silent Bob Get Old” podcaster is more disciplined with his meals. Despite his disdain of greens (“I f–king hate vegetables”), he has found a way to make veganism work for him. “Look, eating is just what you do to live, that’s it,” he says. “You’ve just got to find a path that you can stay on. Like as long as you’re not eating meat or animal food products it’s all good. I eat a lot of beans, and beans are all free on that program, so that’s been easy and amazing.”

Silent Sam's fate is put on hold again. Committee has more time to decide about monument..
RALEIGH, N.C. - The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will have until at least late May to decide what should be done with the damaged Silent Sam statue, under an extension granted by the university system's Board of Governors. The Daily Tar Heel was the first to report the extension, which it said was announced at a meeting Monday of the UNC-Chapel Hill Faculty Executive Committee. UNC spokesman Josh Ellis confirmed the deadline extension in a phone conversation Tuesday. Ellis said Board of Governors Chairman Harry Smith sent an email to members of a committee working on the statue plan to tell them of the extension.
