His unhealthy eating habit was the major factor in his obesity. 'I just stopped eating all the time, I'd have a handful of food, and it'd go to my mouth,' he said. 'I was just eating all the time. I was just eating alcoholically. In the old days, I would take three months out, lose 60 or 70 pounds, and then reward myself with a six-pack of bud or whatever and just go back to my old habits.'
