“I played my whole career at 295 (pounds). I’m trying to get down to 250-260. My goal is to lose two pounds a week, but maintain my muscle mass,” Jason added.

“And I try to watch my carbs, my proteins and my fats.”

Schwarzenegger suggested that Kelce should “slowly decrease body fat” while “increasing muscle mass.”

“Jason does a lot of things, uh, what is it, are you vegan?” said the 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs star.
