What if we told you the last time Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady missed a game due to sickness or injury was over 12 years ago. You’d probably give us some serious side-eye right? After all, he’s a professional athlete… it’s literally his job to push his body to its limits.

Well, true as that may be, it’s also not surprising given the guy is a BIG believer in maintaining healthy habits – especially during the coronavirus crisis. Just check out his latest post on IG stories…

“Stay Strong ???????? NO FEAR” he captioned it, adding “Keep It Simple!”

Here’s the list in full:

  1. Keep a Positive TB12 Mindset
  2. Stay Hydrated
  3. Eat Your Vegetables
  4. Consume Vitamin D
  5. Consume Essential Fatty Acids
  6. Skip Added Sugar
  7. Move for 30-60 Minutes Each Day
  8. Get Extra Vitamin C
  9. Get Zinc
  10. Eat Lots of Protein
  11. SLEEP!
  12. Get Probiotics into Your Diet

Worth noting: he also avoids white sugar, white flour, MSG and dairy. Oh, and caffeine, fungus and some veggies too.

“[Tom] doesn’t eat nightshades, because they’re not anti-inflammatory. So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms or eggplants,” Brady’s personal chef Allen Campbell told Boston.com. “Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month.”

“[I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it.”

Now THAT’S dedication to the cause.
