Chris Pratt plans to eat a whole lot of meat this year.
The 36-year-old actor is only going to feast on the meat of animals he catches and kills this year.
“I’m going to start a diet I called ‘The Game Plan’ where basically I only eat wild game for a year,” the avid hunter wrote on Instagram. “‘The Game Plan,’ get it? Cause GAME?”
Pratt, who famously slimmed way down to play Star-Lord in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” announced his carnivorous plan in a long and winding 345-word comment, accompanying a picture of him, large knife in hand, cutting up deer meat and vacuum sealing it for storage.
But the former “Parks & Rec” star won’t only be eating meat, assuring fans he plans to still eat a well-balanced diet.
“I mean I’ll also eat veggies and fruit and other stuff too,” he continued. “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.”
Actually, the further one delves into the comment, the clearer it becomes that Pratt isn’t that strict about “The Game Plan,” as he also gives himself an opening to “cheat” with things like burgers, sushi and pepperoni.
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. 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!?
