During an appearance on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast earlier this month, Malone disclosed that he now weighs 185 pounds. He shared he had previously weighed 240 pounds, but after eliminating soda from his diet, he shed 55 pounds.

"Soda's so bad. It’s so bad, but it's so good," Malone admitted to Rogan.

"[If] I had a great show, and you know what, I’m feeling a little bit naughty, I’m going to have myself a Coke on ice," he said of occasionally splurging.

Malone, 28, also attributed more recent lifestyle changes to becoming a father.

"I guess having a baby really put a lot into perspective, and it’s really slowed me down a lot, like party-wise, you know, going out and being crazy," he told host Zane Lowe on his Apple Music show.
