Gisele Bundchen was on CBS This Morning where she revealed some interesting things about her life with husband, Tom Brady. She admitted that the the star quarterback regularly plays with brain injuries but keeps it a secret.
The supermodel told the host: ”…like he had a concussion last year. I mean he has concussions pretty much every [year] … I mean, we don’t talk about. But he does have concussions.”
In case anyone is keeping track, Brady didn’t declare any sort of head injuries last year which is a big deal because the NFL does not allow players to remain on the field if they are diagnosed with a concussion during a game. Of course, the loophole is that he can return to playing the following week if his doctor gives him the green light.
Bundchen got some push back from the host who said: ”I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through like, through that kind of aggression like, all the time–that cannot be healthy for you, right?”
Her response: ”I mean I’m planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we’re like 100, I hope.”
Hmmm meanwhile she made a point of letting the world know that the restrictive diet she makes them follow has made him feel better. As a rule, the family steers clear of white sugar, white flour, MSG, caffeine, fungus, dairy, nightshades, and most fruit.
“In my situation, we have a plant-based died and we’ve been having it for 10 years,” explained Bundchen. “Because we feel better, it is better for our health and everything we put into our body has an affect on us, has an affect on our energy and how we feel.”
The mother of two is making it clear that, while people have mocked Brady for eating whatever his wife tells him to eat, the end result has been worth it. “The thing is, he said he’s been feeling so much better,” said Bundchen. “I have to say it’s amazing, you know, the way he feels. He doesn’t feel achy. He just feels so much more energy.”
So is she basically saying that she’s responsible for his incredible five wins at the Super Bowl (including this most recent history-making comeback)? Thankfully, no. She rightfully gives credit where credit is due.
“He has to thank his commitment, his dedication to it, because he still has to want to do it, right?” she said. “In the beginning, it was a little bit different for him, but now he loves it and he wouldn’t have it any other way because he feels better.”
Let’s hope she gets as serious about the dangers associated with brain injuries as she does about avoiding white sugar.
