Nick Offerman has a fall diet that would pretty much make any meat lover jealous and horrify any nutritionist.

"If you want a salad with your brats, here are some Wisconsin cheese curds," Nick said on "The Tonight Show."

"You may have heard of the turduken," Nick said.

"Oh, is that it?" Jimmy asked.

"Yeah, it's a chicken carcass inserted into a duck carcass, which is then shoved inside of a turkey," Nick said.  

But maybe Nick's body can take the punishment after all those years of playing the protein-loving Ron Swanson on "Parks and Recreation." 

"You know what, I think I will have that third steak after all," Nick's character said on "Parks and Recreation."
