The Hawaii-born star professed: 'You need to eat big and lift big. But I prefer to eat as much lean meat and green veg as possible and save the calories for Guinness. It keeps you sane.
'I love carbs but denial is good training for the mind. After finishing a one-month cleanse, I had a giant bowl of pasta and I swear to Christ it was like I was on heroin.'
Revealing his guilty pleasures, Jason added: 'I love cigars and booze. If you’re going to pound the beers you’ve got to suck it up. It [the treadmill] gets you going, man. Then you can have that beer.'

He recalled: 'I wanted Conan to be like a big cat. I wanted to be strong but agile. They hunt and they eat. That’s why they’re big.
'I’m not a big fan of just doing weights. Anything more physical is infinitely better.'
The father-of-two, who is married to Lisa Bonet, continued: 'Whether that’s working on my house or hitting at the holes in my driveway with a pick.'

Reliving what it was like to go up against the legend that is Stallone, Jason confessed he was a little apprehensive when they filmed their final fight scene.
He said: 'At the end of Bullet to the Head I had to swing this wooden axe at top speed right at Stallone and you don’t really want to clip him. He’s got these slabs of meat for fists.'
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Sarah Shahi and Sung Kang also have lead parts in the blockbuster.
