Kevin Smith Shows His Vegan Fridge & Home Gym | Gym & Fridge | Men’s Health


– If you have no idea who
I am and anyone out there who reads Men’s Health
or watches Men’s Health has no (beep) clue who I am cause I would never be featured
in the pages of Men’s Health unless it was like an
obituary or before picture or something like that back in the past. Here’s one where I’m in
a pool with clothes on, that’s how body shamed I am. – [Interviewer] Hey
Kevin, we’re here to see your gym and fridge. (upbeat music) – Hey! Men’s Health man,
what are you doing here? At my place of all things? Man I don’t know nothing about health, but I’m gonna invite you
in, I’m gonna show you my gym and fridge man, come on in. – [Interviewer] I hear you’re a vegan now. – I am a vegan. Recently
I went vegan about 10, 11 months ago right
after a heart attack. I had a heart attack
last year in February, massive heart attack,
cause I had 100% blockage in my LAD man. That was a
widow maker heart attack. Almost died. 20% chance of
living and came through. So at that point I said, “I
don’t want to (beep) die. “I will go vegan.” So I used to be happy
and now I’m (beep) vegan. So it’s been a wondrous journey. Wound up changing my life man. Like little changes in the
kitchen changed my whole life. You wanna go see the
kitchen? Come with me. – [Interviewer] I’m thirsty,
got anything to drink in there? – I can offer you iced tea, I don’t really drink anything all that sweet anymore man. Pretty much plain stuff.
It’s all water or like, iced tea. Straight up. I don’t drink booze. I
was never a boozer, ever. I’m a stoner, I’m a greens man. So, you know, I’m a traveler of the green. Green tea. Mmm, that is completely flavorless. But that’s the thing, we’re trained, particularly as Americans,
to like enjoy everything. Everything’s supposed to
be a sumptuous banquet, and that’s not true. Anything with sugar – Yoo-hoo, Twinkies, oh lord I could mainline that stuff. – [Interviewer] What did your
fridge used to look like? – The fridge used to be
packed with a lotta milk. I drank a lot of milk back in the day. This is gonna be a little
embarrassing to admit, I drank two gallons of milk a day. Probably why I had the heart attack, I don’t know, we’ll figure
it out sooner or later. Back in the day this household was just a non-stop Thanksgiving man. Now you don’t do gravy anymore, you do like kind of plant
based mushroom gravy. Try not to think about the mushroom part. – [Interviewer] What’s
your diet mainly consist of these days? – I’m a big fan of the Beyond meat man, I live on this stuff
eat that all the time. WW doing prepared meals man. And this is easy to do cause
I’m not like a big pig. I try not to snack out, I try to stay away from sugar as much as possible, but when I do this stuff, this MadeGood stuff,
is really amazing man. And it’s also good to
take out in the world, because sometimes you travel city to city and they don’t have the vegan choices that you have here in Los Angeles, so I pack a lot of pre-pack
snacks like these man. I love these chick peas, oh my god, get between me and these chick peas find your throat get cut man. There’s obviously some Daiya, there’s a series of fake cheeses. Everyone in this house is vegan. The kid went vegan long
before anyone else did. And then when I had the heart attack, she was in the room and
the nutrionist was like, “Maybe you should think
about going plant-based,” and the kid was like, “Yes,
one of us, one of us!” So I kind of did it for her. I ate the way I wanted to for 47 years, I’mma give this vegan thing six months. I’ll do it your way for six months. It’s not even hard, I don’t miss anything. Every once in a while, we were
just at the holidays right? Holidays passed, and you’re like, “Oh man! “Egg nog, I wish I had egg nog.” Coconut egg nog. It’s
nuts, coconut milk egg nog. You can do a (beep) ton with
a coconut, who knew man. Bananas foster; coconut. Chocolate peanut butter; coconut. I know you’re looking at
me right now going like, “Silent Bob telling me how to (beep) eat?” Yes, believe it or not man. I’m not saying I’m an expert but I’ve been through some stuff and so now I can speak on the
issue of men’s health. – [Interviewer] What’s the weirdest diet you’ve ever been on? – Weirdest diet I’ve ever been on, cause I’ve been on a series of weight loss programs across my life, I took a fat blocker back in the day and I can’t remember what the name of it was, but it said it blocked 33%
of your fat intake right? So took this pill and you’re eating your normal greasy ass diet, and it’s blocking 33% of
the fat being absorbed. But instead it’s
manifesting in your body as, wait for it, trigger warning
we’re gonna talk poo, greasy, oily, (beep). So that was the most ludicrous thing I think I’ve ever done to lose weight man. Now I don’t diet at all.
Now I just eat better. So if you’re curious and you’re like, “Oh (beep), him? He lost weight? “That fat piece of
(beep) how did he do it?” That’s how I do it and I
did it with relative ease. It wasn’t hard, it wasn’t like me going, “I hate this life and everybody in it.” I was easy to be around and stuff. I was thinking about 2019,
we’re gonna go make a movie, Jay and Silent Bob movie,
so I still wanna be somewhat look like I used to. But I was thinking after that movie maybe I will go become this
guy, like jacked Kevin Smith. Would you like to see my gym? Let me show you my gym, come on. Alright so I lied, this is my home gym. I don’t have enough money
to afford a home gym, so I use the outside world man. Number one: free no gym fees. Number two: you get to
breathe that real air instead of breathing that gym air which is made up of a lot of sweat. So me and Shecky hit the hill everyday. This is the gym. – [Interviewer] What do you consider to be an intense workout? – An intense workout is
something that I would never do, because that would turn me off to the idea of health and exercise. So this is pretty much the daily intense activity that I engage in man. It’s about a mile and
change all the way up and all the way back. And then when I started losing weight then I decided to go for Runyon Canyon. That’s where all the
skinny people go hiking. – [Interviewer] Why do you
always wear hockey jerseys? – If you saw any picture of me taken for the last ten years or more, I’m probably in a hockey jersey. I lived in hockey jerseys
cause hockey jerseys is kind of like the fat guy’s muumuu. Looks really great, you can
hide your weight under it. When I lost the weight I started looking weird in hockey jerseys. There was a moment where I was like, “Oh no, what will I do?” I’ve branded myself for the
better part of a decade. I decided alright, I’m
just gonna let that go. So I defaulted to the
way that I used to dress in 1997 before I started getting heavy, and that was suit jackets and jean shorts and t-shirts and stuff. Yeah man it was weird,
it was the end of an era. The heart attack closed a lot of doors including on my haute couture. – [Interviewer] What’s
your favorite tattoo? – So I have a couple of tattoos. I’m not a very macho or butch guy by any stretch of the imagination, but I am a writer so I’ve
words all over my body. This one says IN SMOD I TRUST. SModcast is the podcast that
I’ve done for 12 years now. So I learned over the course of making that podcast to
trust my own instincts. I realized In Smod I Trust, I’m Smod so in me I trust. Over here I got my kid’s name, it says Harley’s on this arm. That’s cause on this arm
I have my wife’s name, says Jenny’s and if we ever split up I would turn that J into a D. Alright, the fitness questions! Man hit me with your fitness questions. – [Interviewer] 7 a.m.
workout or 7 p.m. workout? – 7 a.m. workout. – [Interviewer] Squats or deadlifts? – Squat believe it or not. – [Interviewer] Favorite
song on your playlist? – Favorite song to workout to is “Outstanding” by The Gap Band. – [Interviewer] Crossfit: yea or nay? – I won’t even change a
tire in real life on a car, so I’m not gonna (beep)
around with one in the gym so no crossfit for me. – [Interviewer] Pull-ups or chin-ups? – Pull-ups or chin-ups. Well,
what an interesting question. In high school I could do neither. I remember hanging there for 20 minutes one day in gym class trying to do one single pull-up and it didn’t happen. So I can’t imagine I’d be
any better at a chin-up. – [Interviewer] Dumbbells or kettlebells? – I like kettlebells, I
like pulling something with a handle. Doing this? That’s just too macho for me. – [Interviewer] Run on a
treadmill or run outside? – I think if I had to run at all it would only be when chased. – [Interviewer] Cardio or weights? – I pick cardio over weights every time. Weights feels like a workout
and I’m never trying for that. I don’t wanna feel like I’ve worked out. So I go cardio. – [Interviewer] Big legs? Big arms? – I have big legs by child birth. My mom gave me her own
childbearing hips in my DNA, so I’ve got big legs
whether I want them or not. – [Interviewer] What’s
the biggest compliment: jacked, ripped, swole, cut? – Muscle tone and or definition, that’s something I never ever expected to see on my body in this life, but I also never expected to see my high school weight again which I have. Like now I’m thinner than
I was in high school, when I graduated high school. So anything’s possible at this point. Alright, that’s it. Generally I don’t do this while talking, so I’m like out of breath and I’m gonna continue the workout cause that’s what it’s all about: health. Men’s Health particularly,
cause I’m a men’s. So thanks for hanging out, I’m gonna do this. (upbeat music)

  1. "I was consuming 3,200-4,000 extra calories everyday, I think that maybe why I had a heart attack." Yeah no shit Sherlock.

  2. Rich asshole shows how rich assholes afford to be healthy while working stiffs eat shit. Thanks Kevin for proving that from going from a fat poor guy to a rich skinny guy! AMAZING

  3. When he says 2 gallons of milk and the caption has a typo. It says “approximately 1.95 too much” when it should say “exactly 2 gallons too much”

  4. I switched to a vegan SOS diet for my health as well and I lost 25 kg (55 pounds) and am now thinner and smaller round the waist than I was when I left the equivalent of high school too. It has been a life changer even though I didn't have the heart problems or the weight of Kevin Smith – it helped me. I think the wardrobe change was the thing that I didn't think about – including shoes – my shoe size went down – I hadn't thought of having fat feet but you do store the excess fat in the feet as well.

  5. He’s talking about Alli diet pills when he talked about nasty greasy poops. I did this myself and it’s definitely nasty stuff. The good news is that it teaches you to not eat fatty foods and when you do, you lose it in your shorts😂

  6. Raw milk would be the healthiest thing he could have. All that junk in his fridge is poison. Meat is the most nutrient dense food there is.

    Because people eat like shit they blame it on the meat. Animal Fat is essential for health!!

  7. damn this dude looks like he's about to shrivel up and die that's the problem with these soyboys need a fucken steak forced under throat well look at it this way the world comes to an end we'll just eat these motherfuckers

  8. I'm sure he was joking when he said he couldn't afford a home gym. There was a LOT of processed food (all be it plant based) in that fridge. Never the less, good luck to him.

  9. Close that fridge already! I'm getting stressed out of my mind over here. My fridge starts beeping if you keep it open for too long.

  10. Oh god, that Daiya reea cheese is so nasty. He doesn't have many fresh foods, just some potatoes and grapes. I'm sure he gets everything made for him, but that processed vegan junk isn't that healthy either.

  11. That food looks gross! But I'm glad he made the life change! You have to be disciplined with what you eat! I eat meat but try to be disciplined!

  12. 20 Years Ago my Dad had a multiple Heart Attack,after having Diabetes since the Age of 40(now 70).He was always a bit chubby and ate a lot of Meat cause of the old science about Diabetes(No Carbs).My Family nearly broke together by his Desease,his Fear of Dying and other Anxieties.
    I was shocked seing this and started to run and work out,lost 30kg(to 80kg)and the Mens Health gave me a lot of upwind and Tips…but i always saw The Barbecue Challenges,and celebrating Meat?
    i was shocked again…its the Mens HEALTH,not the Playboy?!My Dad nearly died from Bad(Meat)Diet and still this Mens Health recommended it?
    Quit Meat and Dairy 10 Years Ago,i have perfect Blood and Colesterol,i am the healthiest in my whole Family…pushing 40 and i took no pills and have no desease whatsoever.
    Dont like the extreme Vegans,and they dont like me either…but the Diet is very Healthy,no doubt about that.

  13. Los angeles has worse air pollution in america. You would be better inside where the hvac will filter some of the pollution.

  14. I been there and look at levels every week. Dont know what city your in but your breathing horrible air. Some days its not even bad but Hazerdous. Which is crazy bad.. Actually worse rating

  15. So he's basically just eating right but not really working out. I've been a personal trainer for 30+ years and he's making the same mistake so many have made. His heart will remain weak (no venous return strengthening). HUGE MISTAKE not to be strength training.

  16. Yes. That's exactly how a fridge looks. Every single item facing forward to show the brand labeling and perfectly organized. It's amazing how much of a sellout Kevin Smith has become. Jay and Silent Bob Sequel sucked ass and this is why, too much fucking soy.

  17. One can only afford to be vegan if he's rich, I hate when people specifically in US buy a bunch of boxed up shit and call it a meal, like, buy stuff and prepare it yourself what the fuck, and to even think how much this fridge costs is giving ME a god damn heart attack

  18. Beyond ice cream and cheese dairy is disgusting. Can't wait to completely eliminate it again. My skin is gonna have a major glow up.

  19. Literally everything in a package in his fridge has processed oil in it. Still will get heart attacks from it.

  20. I love my WFPB diet… taste great, look great, feel great. If I survive the Coronavirus, I’ll be testing my blood lipids to see how much they’re improved
