Jason Kelce revealed he has some lofty weight-loss goals after retiring from the NFL earlier this year.

During an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday’s episode of the “New Heights” podcast, the former Philadelphia Eagles center, 36, detailed his plan to shed almost 50 pounds.

“I’m in the process right now, I’m retired,” he told the former Governor of California.

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

“And I’m trying to monitor my carbs, my proteins and my fats.”

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

Elsewhere in the episode, Travis Kelce revealed his big brother had been trying his hand at veganism.

“Jason does a lot of erm, what is it, you’re vegan?” the Kansas City Chiefs star, 34, said.

“Jason’s real vegan. I always was out on vegan. I tried it one week and couldn’t do it. I needed way more protein than beans.”

“I look forward to getting skinny. But I’m gonna slim down … this last week I got down to like 285,” he said during a March episode of the brothers’ podcast.

“There’s different ways to do this. I personally don’t subscribe to doing extreme diets like going all the way vegan or all the way carnivore or keto. F–k no, I’m not doing that.”

Travis, for his part, also addressed his weight during the episode, after fans joked that he had a “dad bod” while on vacation with girlfriend Taylor Swift.

“It’s March!” the athlete quipped, suggesting that he’s been more lenient with his diet and exercise routine after winning his third Super Bowl in March.

The tight end has certainly been making the most of the off-season, jetting to Australia, Singapore and the Bahamas with his pop star girlfriend.
