Luke Combs knows he’s a big guy, and he talked about how being overweight has been a problem for most of his life in a new interview.
Luke said, “I’m wearing a 3X T-shirt. I wouldn’t advise it. It was always something that’s bugged me, especially when you’re younger; you’re like, ‘Man, I just got a horrible genetic dice roll on this thing.’ You start to realize that almost even more when you’re older.”
He added, “Not that I don’t pig out, because I do pig out. I’m not trying to say it’s not my fault because it is in a lot of ways. But also, I got to this point where I’m like, ‘Man, I’d really love to trim down,’ and it’s so hard for me to do that.”
Combs has always stayed away from drugs, but for him, food is his addiction. He offered, “Food is the only drug that you are addicted to that you have to have to live. I don’t need to have a cigarette to be alive, but I need food to be alive.”
Now that Luke is a father of new baby Tex, who came on father’s Day (6/19), he says his son is already inspiring him to change his habits. “Having a kid has really messed my head up on this thing in the best way. I want to be around. I’m fine right now; my cholesterol and my blood pressure and stuff, it’s fine because I’m a younger guy, but by the time I’m 45, it’s not going to be because of the shape that I’m in.”
