Chris Pratt: TV goofball, blockbuster movie star, health guru?
The 36-year-old actor took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off the product of a recent deer hunt, pitching his idea for a new diet plan in the process.
“I grew up in the woods,” Pratt captioned the pic. “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.”

As the Jurassic World star packed away some “tasty meat from an awesome deer hunt in the great state of Texas,” he also had an inspired idea for a new nutrition fad.
“I'm going to start a diet I called ‘The Game Plan’ where basically I only eat wild game for a year,” he wrote. “‘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.”
Pratt’s plan, however, comes with some caveats.
“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,” he added. “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…”
Other exceptions to the diet include, pepperonis, pepperoncinis (not meat, but kind of sound like they could be), Thanksgiving turkey, ham, and lamb on Easter.
“So... ‘The Game Plan,’” he concluded. “Who's with me!?”
