Kevin Smith, the filmmaker/actor behind such movies as “Chasing Amy, “Clerks,” and “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back,” has dropped 50 pounds since starting the Atkins diet last April.

bq. “It’s psychosomatic,” he says as he wolfs down eggs and sausage at the Magnificent Mile’s Oak Tree restaurant. “You simply can’t eat that much meat, cheese and eggs and not get sick of it. In the beginning you’re like, ‘Great, I can eat all the meat, cheese and eggs I want.’ But then you’re like, ‘If I eat another egg or piece of cheese, I’m going to throw up.’ Therefore, you tend to not eat nearly as much.”
