If you have ever wondered what it takes to have a body like a supermodel (apart from amazing genes to start off with) then now you are in luck because the personal chef for Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady has revealed just what these two eat on a daily basis to look so good.
While we all love to hear about a celebrity diet, it turns out that there is not a lot of fun in the Bündchen and Brady kitchen with many foods being off the menu permanently and the couple following a very restricted diet which is made up of around 80 percent vegetables.
Personal chef to Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, Allen Campbell, told Boston.com all about what the couple were eating each day.
He said: “Eighty percent of what they eat is vegetables. [I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it. And whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans. The other 20 percent is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken. As for fish, I mostly cook wild salmon.”
This sort of diet is actually very popular with many people, especially those that advocate a low carbohydrate lifestyle and eating non- processed, clean foods.
While we ow know what the couple are allowed to eat, the personal chef went on to list the foods they would not ever be eating: “No white sugar. No white flour. No MSG. I’ll use raw olive oil, but I never cook with olive oil. I only cook with coconut oil. Fats like canola oil turn into trans fats. … I use Himalayan pink salt as the sodium. I never use iodized salt.”
The list of restricted foods continued: “[Tom] doesn’t eat nightshades, because they’re not anti-inflammatory. So no tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants. Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but just maybe once a month. I’m very cautious about tomatoes. They cause inflammation.”
And there was more for the “no” list to come: “No coffee. No caffeine. No fungus. No dairy. The kids eat fruit. Tom, not so much. He will eat bananas in a smoothie. But otherwise, he prefers not to eat fruits,” added to this is the fact that the family also try to keep gluten free – which doesn’t really leave much else left to enjoy?
Adopting a healthy eating plan is a great way to promote weight loss, however an exceptionally restricted diet is very difficult to maintain, even with a personal chef and for continued success, a more varied diet should be considered.
