Are Potatoes The Next Best Diet Food?

'Clerks' director and star Kevin Smith has made some significant diet changes after his massive heart attack, and somehow potatoes are centrally involved in this new meal plan.On his podcast 'Hollywood Babble-On,' Smith shared that he's been following a diet from Penn Jillette's book called 'Presto!: How I Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear.' Yes, that's Penn from Penn & Teller.

In this diet, the book states that you eat potatoes for 2 weeks, and then incorporate salads and veggies - while skipping on fruit and nuts for over 3 months. He also noted that with the urgent call for him to lose 50 lbs from his doctor, he has also removed animal related products from his diet.

Quoted by E! he said, "My kid is thrilled because she’s a vegan, 'She’s like, 'Welcome home brother." He notes that he didn't choose that for any personal philosophy, but it's more of a necessity standpoint.

For those who know of Kevin Smith and his looks throughout the years, it's hard to deny that Silent Bob is looking pretty thin. If there is ever a 'Clerks 3' or some 'Jay and Silent Bob' cameo, he will probably have to write in his healthy lifestyle, along with being off the "Jamaican Lambs Wool" as Jay says in 'Clerks 2.'

My new jersey commemorating my life & death battle with arch nemesis, The Widow-Maker! This open-heart crest, drawn by @supergirlcw storyboard artist @jeremysimser, was a gift from sweet storyteller @etcarrasco and the @supergirlwriters in the show's writing room. The card read "A crest to commemorate your big win against the deadliest of foes, the wrathful Widow-Maker. We could've made you the man with the Kryptonite heart, but this wasn't your Kryptonite. We could've given you an Arc Reactor, but that's the competition. And anyway, the best part about you is your heart's always your own. Wear it on your sleeve, or in this case, smack dab in the center of your jersey. - The Supergirl Writers" Thank you, my Super wordsmiths! I believe, in this jersey, a man can fly! #KevinSmith #supergirl #supergirlwriters
