Tom Brady’s Career

Drafted from Michigan by the New England Patriots in the 6th round (pick 199), Tom Brady began his NFL career. He was initially a backup to Drew Bledsoe but when Bledsoe was injured in 2001, Tom took over as starter. It was a job he would never give back.

Brady went on to lead his team to a Superbowl in three of the first four seasons as a starter. An absolute fire beginning to a career for the future hall of famer. He then went on to win three more championships in the last six seasons in New England.

Now, as the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady instantly makes them a Superbowl contender.

Tom Brady Nutrition

Brady’s diet consists of the following:

  • Organically grown fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts
  • Grass-fed lean meats, and wild-caught fish.

80% of the diet is fruits, vegetables, and whole grains while the other 20% is meat and fish.

Whole grains and vegetables

He avoids sugars, artificial sweeteners, trans fat, caffeine, gluten, and most oils. Brady also does not drink alcohol when abiding by this diet. Instead, he strives to drink half his bodyweight in pounds in terms of ounces of water per day.

Another part of the Tom Brady nutrition plan is the combination and timing of meals. He doesn’t eat any other foods with fruit, and he won’t eat high-protein foods combined with carb-rich foods. With the increased monotony of food types, this diet can be a good way to monitor or even lose weight.

Tom Brady Workout

Per Brady’s fitness guru, Alex Guerrero, Tom doesn’t follow the usual protocol for his workouts during the NFL season. Brady does a full body workout using resistance bands to work at the “speed of sport” instead of lifting weights.
