Eating only wild game for an entire year can be a difficult challenge to undertake, even for diehard hunters. So it’s especially surprising to hear about a huge Hollywood actor vowing to eat only wild game for 365 days. Then again, not many Hollywood actors are like Chris Pratt. An avid hunter, Pratt is unapologetic about his love for hunting, so much so that he ate only what either he or his friends killed for an entire year – mostly.
Pratt called his diet “The Game Plan,” and besides occasionally eating eggs, steak, bacon, fish, sushi, pepperoni, turkey and lamb, he only ate wild game.
It looks like the diet was a success, because Pratt has only become a more recognizable household name in the last year. Wild game for the win!
In the end it’s not really about whether or not every single piece of food that he ingests came from a wild animal. It’s about being an advocate for hunting, and having such a well known person as Pratt as an advocate in an otherwise largely anti-hunting society like Hollywood.

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!?
