Tom Brady says he's never taken a sip of coffee ... not even Dunkin'
'I never had any coffee or anything like that,' Brady said. 'I just never tried it.'
Bill Belichick hasn't been to the grocery store in a couple years. Tom Brady doesn't eat dairy, caffeine, gluten, fruit (for the most part), mushrooms, peppers, white flour, white sugar -- the list goes on and on. What is it with the Patriots and their food habits?
The most recent development: Brady's chef wasn't lying when he said Brady doesn't consume caffeine. Because, according to Tom Brady, Tom Brady has never tried coffee in his life -- like not even a sip!
"I never had any coffee or anything like that," Brady told WEEI. "I just never tried it."
As Boston Magazine pointed out, there's some irony here, as Brady's been partly responsible for some of the coffee New Englanders have drank this year. Back in September, Dunkin' Donuts announced that they'd give away free coffee whenever the Patriots win. Well, thanks to Brady's league-leading 36 touchdowns, the Patriots won 12 games and Dunkin' Donuts gave away plenty of free coffee -- a reward Brady obviously didn't take advantage of.
In all seriousness, Brady's strict diet probably shouldn't be mocked. After all, he's 38 years old and is still operating at an optimal level. There's no way to know if his diet is playing a significant role in his longevity, but there's no doubt that Brady's remained incredibly healthy throughout his career, playing in all 16 games of every season since 2009.
