Ron Swanson Approves Of Chris Pratt’s New ‘The Game Plan’ Diet

Nick Offerman loves his meat tornadoes, but Chris Pratt is the Parks and Recreation cast member with the greatest affection for hunting. He told GQ that “anytime I kill something, before I eat it, I like to say a quick prayer, just ‘cause we did waste this guy,” which is a very Andy Dwyer way of putting it. And in a separate interview, Pratt, who has hunted everything from squirrels to coyotes, said he has a “great deal of respect for the animals that I kill, and I feel remorse and all of the emotions that come with it.”

The Jurassic World star’s sort-of resolution for 2016 is a new diet (most people like to get in better shape for the new year; he already did that). It’s called “The Game Plan,” and it involves only eating meats “that were caught or killed by me or my friends.” There are a few caveats:

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!? (Via Instagram)


Pratt can sell the meat he doesn’t eat to Low-Cal Calzone Zone.

Here I am vacuum packing some deer meat in the kitchen. I grew up in the woods. Not literally. I mean, we had a house. I wasn't raised by coyotes. But I spent a lot of time in the woods. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors with my friends and family is how I spent my free time as a young'n. That part of me will never change. I mean. I'm assuming. I don't know. Maybe it will. It hasn't yet. Maybe one day I'll wake up and be like, "I'm only gonna eat veggies for the rest of my life." If I do that's cool. It's a free country. Anyways. I just filled the freezer with a bunch of tasty meat from an awesome deer hunt in the great state of Texas. Oh! I should tell you: 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.

So… "The Game Plan" Who's with me!?
