Tom Brady's Diet Proves He's a Vegetable-Powered Football Robot
Aside from being rich, handsome, and married to a super model, Tom Brady's best known for
drinking the blood of innocents to sate his Devil master being a God to Boston sports fans. He's easy to hate. But to maintain his Adonis shrine (re: his body), the New England Patriots quarterback goes to great lengths -- starting with his diet. And no, he doesn't actually eat children for breakfast. We think.
In an interview with Boston.com, Brady's personal chef, Allen Campbell, delves into the nutritious foods he feeds to the 4-time Super Bowl winner, his wife, Giselle Bundchen, and their kids. While nothing about the cuisine comes off as particularly shocking, the list of foods Brady doesn't eat is more fascinating than the foods he does eat. For instance, Campbell believes in a mostly plant-based diet, bolstered by whole grains and lean meats. Which makes sense, if you've read enough literature on nutrition.
But the chef's replies to several questions revealed foods Brady and family don't eat. That list includes:
- White sugar
- White flour
- Olive oil-fried foods
- Canola oil
- Iodized salt
- Tomatoes (~once a month)
- Most fruits
- The New York Giants defense
Decidedly absent from Brady's diet: apples. Because he went 0-2 against the Giants in the Super Bowl.
