LeBron James’ diet sounds like it’s the opposite of Tom Brady’s: ’He has the worst (expletive) diet ever,’ ex – MassLive.com

The dietary choices of both Tom Brady and LeBron James are apparently the stuff of legend — just for the opposite reasons.

On Thursday, The Athletic published an oral history of tall tales concerning James. The 35-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star has been a paragon of longevity of excellence in the NBA, just like Brady is in the NFL.

For the 42-year-old New England Patriots quarterback, it’s common knowledge that longevity is attributed to his strict, unconventional approach to nutrition. Brady is crazy strict about what he eats.

James? Not so much.

Tristan Thompson, James’ former teammate with the Cleveland Cavaliers, told The Athletic that man who led the Cavs to their first title “has the worst (expletive) diet ever.”

“Ask him what he eats for breakfast,” Thompson said to The Athletic. “He has like five french toast, drowns it in syrup with strawberries and bananas. Then he has like a four-egg omelette and then he goes and just (expletive) dunks on somebody. It doesn’t make sense.”

That breakfast is a nightmare for Brady’s TB12 training regimen. It’s loaded with white flour and processed sugars. But what really seals it as an anti-Brady diet is the fact that Thompson specifically mentions strawberries.

While not nutritionally excluded from Brady’s heavily plant-based diet, strawberries are famous for being the bane of the long-time for the quarterback — solely because of the taste.

During an appearance on NPR in 2018, Brady said that he thinks strawberries taste like “s—.”

Strawberries aside, Brady is a proponent of plant-based food, consistent hydration and avoiding processed procucts. James, on the other hand, seems to have a bit of a sweet tooth.

“He eats desserts with every meal,” Thompson told The Athletic. “He’ll come with his one-week diet, vegan crap, but he literally eats like it doesn’t make sense. He’s really a specimen. He eats like (expletive). I remember one year I tried to eat like he ate and it just didn’t work out. I started gaining weight and said, ‘(expletive) this.’ I mean it works for him. He loves sweets. He loves sweets. He eats desserts and French toast. It’s crazy how his body just burns it.”

Brady has seven years on James. But when the quarterback was 35, he’d already been a long proponent of maintaining a strict diet. James, on the other hand, seems to have the metabolism to skirt past any nutritional problems.
