After a @crossroadskitchen Thanksgiving with a @veggiegrill chaser dinner, drastic measures are called for. So Shecky and I spent our Black Friday morning hiking @runyoncanyon. This @ww ambassador went a little crazy with the points yesterday but I’m currently maintaining my weight at 198 pounds – which is less than I weighed when I made Clerks.

That will include a stop at Los Angeles’ Veggie Grill, where he eats almost daily, and Crossroads, an upscale eatery preferred by his vegan daughter Harley and vegetarian wife Jennifer. But don’t get Smith wrong — he’s not “that” kind of vegan.
“I’m not telling you how to live,” said Smith, an advocate for Farm Sanctuary, which is encouraging Thanksgiving celebrants to spare as many turkeys as possible Thursday. “We don’t put it in everybody’s face.”
According to the 48-year-old director, his near-death experience changed his diet, but his daughter lured him into vegan culture.
“She brings you into the vegan cult and they don’t tell you you’re going to become a spokesmodel,” Smith told the Daily News. “Then once I dropped a bunch of weight, the kid was like, ‘Now you have to bring other people into this’ and I was like, …
