New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has a very, ummm, unique diet. We know this because it has been well-chronicled thanks to his boss self-help book The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance.

In his book we learn about his love of avocados, the potentially deadly amount of water he consumes daily (which he says helps to prevent him from getting sunburned), and other odd ways Brady maintains his fitness into his forties.

We also know, thanks to his recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert that TB12 absolutely hates strawberries (though he will eat the occasional cheeseburger…don’t try to make sense of it). On the show, while Brady did actually take a bite of a strawberry (which he did indeed seem to hate), he didn’t give any explanation as to why he strawberries have zero place in the TB12 Method.


However, Brady, who is still making the media rounds promoting his new cult, I mean book and fitness app, appeared on NPR’s Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me! and host Peter Sagal asked him about his Late Show appearance to explain his unusual disdain for strawberries.
