Post Malone has opened up about his weight loss and how it all began with him wanting to be healthier now that he's a dad.

Fans of Post Malone will already know that the artist has gone through a lot of life changes in recent years. In May 2022, the 28-year-old revealed that his longterm girlfriend was pregnant with their first child. The following month, he confirmed that he is now engaged and he and his fiancée are parents to a baby girl. Post is currently keeping their identities private.

Now, Post has discussed how he lost almost 60 pounds on a podcast with Joe Rogan and what he cut from his diet to do it.

Discussing his weight lost with Joe Rogan, Post said: "I was like 240. Now, I'm like 185." He then explained that he stopped drinking soda and the weight started to fall off of him. Post explained: "Soda is so bad. It’s so good but so bad. [But if] I've had a great show, and you know what, I’m feeling a little bit naughty. I’m gonna have myself a Coke on ice."

When Post originally started losing weight, fans started worrying about his health. In April, he took to Instagram to reassure his fans. He said: "I wanted to say that I’m not doing drugs. I’ve had a lot of people ask me about my weight loss and, I’d suppose, performance on stage. I’m having a lot of fun performing and have never felt healthier."

Post wrote that he changed his habits for the sake of his daughter: "I guess dad life kicked in and I decided to kick soda, and start eating better so I can be around for a long time for this little angel."

Post also said that he intends to give up smoking and alcohol. He added: "Next up is smokes and brews, but i like to consider myself a patient man… lol!"

When Post originally told TMZ that he was becoming a father, he said: "I'm excited for this next chapter in my life. I'm the happiest I've ever been, and for since I could remember I was sad... Time to take care of my body and my family and friends, and spread as much love as we can every day."
