This is a good attitude to have. Gotta eat healthy, but even that should be in moderation. I once overheard a really fit guy at the gym say, "Life is too short to not have a piece of pie once in a while." Those are words to live by.

A comedian who I can't remember once said this: "Jack Lalanne was a fitness and health guru. He exercised with weights daily, swam daily, watched his diet like a hawk, all for over 80 years. And he still died."

That's not the point though. There's a decent chance you might live about as long as someone who didn't take care of themselves or eat right, and just got lucky, but your last 10-15 years will be leaps and bounds more enjoyable and graceful than theirs 100% of the time.

Yea, there is a big difference between being in pain everyday and being mobile and mostly healthy. It's definitely not just about how long you live overall.

Nail on the head.

"We all die eventually! You should love yourself more instead of putting yourself through that"

Is one of the most ignorant things people say to me. I do love myself, that's why I'll never stop exercising and eating right. I want to be able to get through my day without taking painkillers and I want to chase my kids around and wrestle with them.

Not only the last 10-15 years though, you will enjoy the rest of your life more as well. Yes there is pleasure in eating cake but there is also pleasure in feeling lighter, having more energy, being generally healthier etc.

I'm decently fit and really it's not all that difficult to accommodate "unhealthy" food once in a while this is especially true if you're not super concerned about being near "stage ready" body fat levels year round. For me at 5'11" 205lbs and lifting heavy a few times a week I maintain around 2800 calories which leaves me a lot of wiggle room for the occasional donuts or pie or whatever. If I were sedentary or a smaller person it becomes increasingly more difficult to find those "extra" calories

people take things out of context all the time. I just read his comment...As a fair skinned irish person myself, the reason we can't get tan is because our skin flakes/peels off constantly rotating back to the pasty white. All he was saying is he hydrates more so after being in the sun he builds up a tolerance it all just doesn't flake off.

I don't even like Brady I am a Giants fan but I always see this type of shit on Reddit.

New York Yankees
26 points · 3 months ago

It's even more odd because drinking water does have an effect on reducing sunburns. Sunburns cause vasodilation, which drinking additional water can make up for. He never says "water prevents sunburns," he's only saying that drinking water helps him reduce his sunburns.

Google Alex Guerrero Tom Brady.

Honestly, Brady was a fairly normal guy before he met Gisele and before he got into this pseudoscience shit because he can't give up football.

There's an NFL Films video about the Tuck Rule Game where he's interviewed maybe a few months after it happened. He's wearing a Guinness t-shirt and a backwards Giants hat. Compare that to the Tom Brady you see today.

edit: here's the video. Fackin' Touchdown Tommy wearing a flat cap and a leather jacket like he's going to audition for Boondock Saints 2: The Boondockining and then the Guinness t-shirt and that unmistakeable orange and black batterman a few seconds later. He had a real New Era 59/50 fetish for years, he was always wearing them. Even when that might be a bad idea.

Kiddo was straight out of central casting for "Irish-American Frat Boy" and now he's extolling the virtues of water for sunburns.

Montreal Expos
201 points · 4 months ago

Gisele had nothing to do with it. Alex Guerrero was Willie McGinest's personal trainer, and in 2004, Brady was complaining to McGinest about how he was never healthy in training camp, so McGinest told him he needed to hook up with Guerrero.

Also, Boondock Saints 2 was subtitled "All Saints Day."

San Francisco Giants
96 points · 4 months ago

Gisele certainly was involved with the fashion choices.

Also, I can't believe you felt the need to correct me over the name of the Boondock Saints sequel.

Montreal Expos
55 points · 4 months ago

He was already starting to dress up because of Moynihan, but yeah, Gisele upped his wardrobe game substantially. That's a benign thing, though... the woo shit is far more troubling.

As far as the Boondock Saints go, I honestly wasn't sure that you knew there was a second Boondock Saints. It sucked, by the way.

In general the focusing on flexibility over muscle mass and looking after his diet works, I think the specifics about the water intake and nightshades and stuff is mumbo jumbo.

fyi there's legit science to the water sunburn thing.

Water helps keep your skin hydrated which makes you less prone to getting sunburns but also improves the healing process in the event of getting one.

It doesn't "prevent" sunburns but proper hydration does make your skin a bit more resistant to it.

TLDR: Dry skin, easier to burn. Smooth skin, harder to burn.

He literally does not ever once say you should not use sun screen. He simply is saying hydration helps skin condition, and for those of us who are white and easily burnt this DOES help maintain a base later of tanned skin, which in fact does help prevent sun burns.

I wish people wouldn’t fall so hard for celebrity and recognizable names, because that’s literally the only thing the Brady diet has going for it. Everyone who knows about diets and workouts will tell you his system is basically nonsense and you can get a better plan anywhere that you don’t have to pay Tom Brady for.

It’s pretty clear the whole things a money-making scheme when you go on the website to see what it says and it keeps aggressively telling you that you need to hire a “TB12 certified personal trainer” or you’re not doing it right.

Good luck convincing a Dominican to go on a diet

Studies show that occasional refeed days(cheat days) have almost no impact on the success of body fat loss and as such should be implemented in order to improve quality of life and the longevity of a healthy diet.

Relevant study: role of leptin https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9024254 Shows refeeding and fasting effect on plasma leptin levels.
