For many professional athletes, retirement is more than stepping off the field. It’s a lifestyle transformation. Jason Kelce’s retirement is no exception.

Jason Kelce officially announced his retirement this past week during an emotion-charged press conference. It wasn’t just the hometown fanbase that found themselves grappling with a wave of emotions; football fans across the nation mourned the end of his storied career (including me!).

While Kelce is stepping away from the football field, his podcast, New Heights, will continue to keep fans updated on his life. And in this week’s latest episode, Kelce disclosed his game plan for post-retirement life.

True to his no-nonsense approach on the field, Kelce has a clear strategy for his health. Rather than adopting radical diet shifts, he’s opting for a more balanced philosophy.

“I personally don’t subscribe to doing extreme diets,” he said in Episode 80 of his New Heights podcast. “I downloaded MyFitnessPal and just started tracking calories. I feel like as long as I maintain my protein intake — so I keep my muscle — and just limit the calories, you’ll start to lose weight. So that’s the plan.”

Determined to slim down to 250 lbs from his last recorded weight of 285 lbs, this former star is committed to taking the same disciplined approach to his health as he did during his playing days. And we love to hear it.
