Post Malone, the renowned artist, and performer, has recently undergone a significant weight loss transformation, shedding nearly 60 pounds. While he’s discussed his weight loss journey in the past, Post Malone provided further insights into his diet during a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show.
Host Howard Stern commended Post Malone for his impressive weight loss, achieved through conventional methods rather than weight loss drugs. Post Malone, born Austin Richard Post, attributed his transformation to a sensible diet that featured an unexpected “secret ingredient” – hot sauce.
He shared his journey, stating, “The first step was, I remember I went on tour, and I was like, you know what? I’m gonna eat grilled chicken, I’m gonna eat carrots, and I’m gonna have a little bit of white rice every night, with Buffalo sauce.” He continued, “Or not Buffalo sauce—hot sauce has no calories in it. I was blown away! I was like wait, what the heck is actually going on? Hot sauce has no calories in it, this is amazing! I get it!”
Post Malone went on to explain that during his tours, he made a conscious effort to eliminate fried and greasy foods, as they were often the only options available late at night after a show. “And so I was like, okay, let’s just try to do this,” he added. “And I lost 20 pounds doing that, and I was like, let’s keep going, let’s keep building, and we just kept pushing forward.”
This is not the first time Post Malone has shared his weight loss journey with the public. In August, during a conversation with Joe Rogan, he revealed his transition from 240 pounds to around 185 pounds by cutting back on soda. He also addressed the topic on Instagram in April, expressing his dedication to a healthier lifestyle for the sake of his baby daughter, who was born the previous year.
“I’m having a lot of fun performing and have never felt healthier,” he shared at the time. “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. Next up is smokes and brews, but I like to consider myself a patient man.”
While Post Malone may still be working on some aspects of his health journey, as seen in the Howard Stern clip, his remarkable weight loss transformation serves as an inspiring example of making positive lifestyle changes. Progress, after all, is progress.
