There are plenty of reasons for many to dislike New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Atlanta Falcons fans have a new reason after last weekend.
Now it seems that some in the media are scrutinizing Brady and his diet which according to Sports Illustrated is “80 percent alkaline and 20 percent acidic,” and noted that this combination helped to “maintain balance and harmony through [his] metabolic system.”
Brady doesn’t touch white sugar, white flour, or nightshade vegetables — which means no tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, and even some berries.

Two things I thought about when I read this:
- Can't argue with the fact that at 39 years old, he is at the top of his game, when most aren't. Is it just his diet? Maybe not, but I don't believe that most football players are doing what Tom is doing either on or off the field.
- When will more realize we are what we eat? Another quote from the article “I don’t believe you could be a 39-year-old quarterback in the NFL and eat cheese burgers every day.”
