What is TB12-Aligned Nutrition?

The truth is, most of us don’t know where our food even comes from.

It’s estimated that the average American meal travels about 1,500 miles to get from farm to plate. This means farmers use preservatives and additives to keep food looking and smelling fresh by the time it gets to you. However, it’s not always as fresh as it seems.

It doesn’t matter how much you exercise — if you’re not providing your body with the right nutrients, you’ll never reach your peak performance. Think of food as your fuel.

The principles behind Tom Brady’s eating habits are simple: eat a nutrient-rich diet consisting of mostly plant-based foods. There’s no single answer to “what does Tom Brady eat?” The TB12™ nutrition recommendation focuses on local, organic, and plant-based food. “You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian,” says Tom. “A healthy diet is a balanced one.”

TB12 emphasizes the benefits of plant-based and local food. A balanced diet with an abundance of fruits and vegetables is key to success. Don’t think of a TB12-aligned diet as strict, though. Too much of a bad thing is bad for you, but too much of a good thing isn’t that good, either. Moderation is essential.

Changing a nutritional regimen isn’t easy — it’s as hard as your workouts can be, and that’s okay. Give yourself time to adjust and build new habits. It’s a step by step process. To make things a little easier for you, we offer healthy and delicious nutrition products.
