Tom Brady wants everyone to know just how healthy he is!

In a recent interview, Tom opened up about how he's able to maintain his amazing pro-football career at 38-years-old despite a ton of injuries and other setbacks.

Let's just say the quarterback has some STRONG feelings on healthy living and he's very passionate about America's "food system".

While Brady admits that brands like "Coca-Cola" pay "lots of money" to advertise at football games, he does NOT think we should be consuming whatever the popular demand tells us to!

The father of three explained his position, stating:

"I would love to encourage all my teammates to eat the best way they possibly can; high school athletes. Now, that's not the way our food system in America is set up. It's very different. They have a food pyramid and I disagree with that. I disagree with a lot of things that people tell you to do. You probably go out and drink Coca-Cola and think 'Oh yeah, that's no problem.' Why? Because they pay lots of money for advertisements … No, I totally disagree with that. And when people do that, I think that's quackery. The fact they can sell that to kids, that's poison for kids. But they keep doing it. Obviously, you guys may not have a comment on that because maybe that's what your belief system is."

Wow, tell us how you really feel, Tom! We guess the athlete won't be appearing in any Coke commercials anytime soon…

The Patriots star elaborated on his wellness philosophy, saying:

"So much of it is being proactive. It's not waiting to get sick. It's not waiting to get injured. Lifestyle choices are very important to your health and wellness. We haven't been educated like that. I think we feel like we can just do whatever we want — we can live, we can eat however we want, drink however we want, do all these different exercises as the way to a healthy lifestyle. I think a lot of those things have been very wrong. I think we've been lied to by a lot of food companies over the years, a lot of beverage companies over the years. But we still do it. That's just America and that's what we've been conditioned to; we believe that Frosted Flakes is actually a food. You just keep eating those things and you wonder why we have incredible rates of disease in our country. No one thinks it has anything to do with what we put in our body. … Of course they taste good and all those companies make lots of money selling those things; they have lots of money to advertise. When you go to the Super Bowl, who are the sponsors? So like I said, that's the education we get; that's what we get brainwashed to believe, that all these things are just normal food groups and this is what you should eat. When you get sick, these are the types of things you should take. I like to try to avoid those things."

At least T.B. knows what's good for him and his body! As long as Tom feels healthy, that's all that matters!

We just wonder how these "sponsors" are going to feel when they catch wind of Brady's comments!
