Gisele's Chef Reveals What The Supermodel's Family Will (and Will Not) Eat

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her husband, professional NFL player Tom Brady, stick to a very strict diet.

The personal chef for Gisele and Tom, Allen Campbell, revealed to website Boston.com what the stars will and will not eat.

Among the list of banned items is:

  • White sugar
  • White flour
  • MSG
  • Olive oil (however, raw olive oil - whatever that is - is okay)
  • Canola oil
  • Iodised salt (Only Himalayan pink salt is permitted)
  • Caffeine
  • Fungi
  • Dairy

Tom in particular appears to be the fusspot of the family.

He won't eat capsicum, mushrooms or eggplants, and will only eat tomatoes "maybe once a month" because "they cause inflammation."

Tom also doesn't eat fruit very often, except for "bananas in a smoothie".

Having said that, the majority of the Bundchen-Brady diet is plant based.

"So, 80 percent of what they eat is vegetables," Chef Campbell confirmed.

"[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."

While Campbell said he cooks for Gisele and Tom's kids - Benjamin, 6, and Vivian, 3 -  Gisele still makes and packs her son's lunch. 

If you're wondering what happens when the family goes on holiday, they used to take their chef along to, but now he mostly stays home and calls ahead to their hotel to make sure the chefs know their dietary requirements.

I guess this is what you can expect when you're cooking for the highest-earning supermodel and one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
