As most of us are on our second, third or fourth cup of coffee of the day, Tom Brady is on cup number zero — of his life.
The Patriots quarterback, whose personal chef recently dished on the super strict (caffeine-free) diet that he and supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen adhere to, revealed on The Dennis and Callahan Show on Monday morning that he’s a total coffee virgin.
“I never had any coffee or anything like that. I just never tried it,” he said. The will power of this man!
He did, however, admit to some human flaws: “Probably burgers or ice cream,” Brady said of his food weaknesses. We also have photographic evidence that he can make some mean pancakes (though technically they were qualified as “#healthypancakes”).
Other than caffeine, the forbidden foods on the couple’s regular diet include white sugar, white flour, MSG, caffeine, fungus, dairy, and nightshades (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and mushrooms). Brady has also railed against products like Coca-Cola and Frosted Flakes in the past, calling them “poison.”
Are you part of the 99.9% of the world that’s not on the Brady-Bündchen diet? Lucky you: We’ve got some delicious recipes to try (alongside a strong cup of joe).
