In real life, Parks and Rec star Chris Pratt is someone who would make Ron Swanson extremely proud. While many Hollywood stars embarked on plant-based, vegan diets, Pratt is taking a decidedly different approach when it comes to his health. The actor is embarking on a new diet which he’s dubbed “The Game Plan,” where he basically only eats meat that he—or someone he personally knows—has killed. Think of it as a next-level version of the Paleo diet.

According to Chris Pratt’s Instagram,

I’m going to start a diet I called “The Game Plan” where basically I only eat wild game for a year. “The Game Plan,” get it? Cause GAME? I mean I’ll also eat veggies and fruit and other stuff too. But for one year I want to eat only the meats that were caught or killed by me or my friends. Total free range organic wild game! The game plan. Join me.

I mean I’m gonna still eat eggs and probably chicken and probably steak I mean I gotta have steak and oysters and definitely bacon. But other than that. And the occasional burger for a cheat meal. But other than that only wild game. The game plan. I should mention I will also have sushi because I have to have sushi because it’s so good. And pepperoni. But that’s not a meat technically, right? But other than that all wild game. And pepperchinis! (That’s not how you spell that) Exclusively wild game. It will be tough. But it’s worth the sacrifice. I will be eating turkey for Thanksgiving. Probably fried. That’s the best. And also ham. For Easter we make lamb. That’s great. Ill have to have lamb that day. So… “The Game Plan” Who’s with me!?

Chris Pratt isn’t hoping to go on this diet alone. In his Instagram post he hopes to rally some followers onto the hunting diet. Hopefully we’ll see Nick Offerman take a stab at this, seeing as it’s essentially Ron Swanson’s character embodied in one diet.


If Pratt is thinking of taking this diet to the next level, he should really consider talking to the guy whose been thriving on meals consisting solely of raw meat. It apparently does wonders for his health.
