Tom Brady Takes A Shot At Frosted Flakes

July 14th, 2022

Tom Brady, who endorsed Subway sandwiches last year, took a shot at another American institution known for its questionable nutritional value.

Yes, Brady is a militant about what he consumes but he often tries to create the impression that he’s not strict about his diet. It’s a silly exercise, but he did it again during his May chat with Variety that published today.

I think people assume that you’re a strict eater.

Tom Brady: It’s not even about the diet. You’ve got to see the process of food being grown. Just because it’s in a grocery store doesn’t mean it’s food. My view of food is, like, I need things that are going to give my body what it needs. Does that make sense? I don’t want calories. If I need nutrients, I need that from soil. It’s not going to be from Frosted Flakes. Now, because they sell it in a grocery store, people correlate that to “I’m going to get food.” In my view, that food would have never allowed me to play football until I’m 44.

Well, it’s a safe bet that Tony The Tiger won’t be signing with the Bucs in free agency, even if he can chase down quarterbacks.

Brady’s shot at All-American breakfast cereal Frosted Flakes is a tough one. Its primary ingredients are milled corn, sugar, malt flavor, plus a ton of added vitamins and minerals. Joe realizes Brady probably would prefer a bowl of baked organic blue corn chips with raw cane sugar and almon milk, plus a grain-free kale waffle for breakfast, but don’t come after Frosted Flakes.

What next? Will Brady call Wheaties “the breakfast of losers.”

    And yet, he’s doing Subway ads? What makes that food?

  2. allen Lofton Says:

    Why not…ingredients inflame the free radicals in the body…not a good thing.

  3. Ultra ClodHopper Says:

    He’s right. Frosted Flakes are empty calories and they cause you to crave other products that are just as empty. Eating that way makes you age faster.

  4. sasquatch Says:

    Pretty much ALL processed cereals are a nutritional scam. Long ago, the industrial food industry realized they could take nutritionally empty dried out old grain, turn it into a sludge, bake it, spray vitamins on it and call it food.

    Tom Brady … ‘My view of food is, like, I need things that are going to give my body what it needs. Does that make sense? I don’t want calories. If I need nutrients, I need that from soil.’

    He’s exactly right, and the proof is in the pudding as mama used to say (not low calorie pudding in this case). Frosted Flakes have ZERO fat & only 1.3 grams of protein, yet 160 calories in 1 cup of cereal. It’s almost all carbs (37.3 grams), and a bunch of that is SUGAR (16 grams).

    Steel cut oatmeal (roughly 1 cup) has about the same number of calories (170), but it has ZERO sugar and a lot more protein (7 grams) with somewhat fewer carbs (29 grams) & a bit more fat (3 grams of healthy fats).

    Given a choice, most would probably go for the Frosted Flakes. Don’t have to cook it & the sugar is what makes it tasty (oatmeal is kinda bland, unless you eat it with a lot of fruit like strawberries, blueberries & banana on top). Probably a lot more ‘nutrients’ in a breakfast like that, but of course, when was the last time you saw an oatmeal commercial? It’s all in the marketing.

    I think Wheaties are known as the choice of very brave TG Olympians.

    Arguably a very niche market……… or at least it used to be.

  7. PassingThru Says:

    I eat granola. It’s a very moving experience.

  8. D-Rome Says:

    Frosted Flakes sucks. I had it for the first time in 30 years about a week ago. I’m addicted to Special K with Strawberries though.

  9. Dooley Says:

    The older I’ve gotten the more I appreciate practicing healthier eating habits, there’s just something about eating something and not feeling right afterwards that bothers me. Would also add, I used to love watching the OG Jack Lalanne infomercials as a yute lol

  10. Ultra ClodHopper Says:

    Remember way back when Ocho Cinco bragged about eating McDonalds every day yet he was still a good athlete? He was drafted one year after Brady and has been retired for over a decade.

  11. #8 Says:

    Bernard Pollard on the Herd now. I will never forgive him for his many sins.

  12. Captain Oblivious Says:

    He’d better not say anything about Captain Crunch. After all, we have the same first name.

  13. BucsfanFred Says:

    Honestly, I don’t give a rats pattootie what that clown eats for breakfast.
    Just win the super bowl.

  14. BucsfanFred Says:

    Not the cereal bowl.

  15. SOEbuc Says:

    Just think of all the salt Brady haters consume off their cheeks daily.

  16. Robert Says:

    so, he’s saying my breakfast burrots with iced coffee & hash brown, followed by arby’s for lunch and KFC for dinner is bad?

  17. CleanHouse Says:

    It’s ok Joe! You seem upset. Just continue eating your Frosted Flakes. It’s good blog food.

  18. MadMax Says:

    Just buy some cloves….take 2 everyday, just swallow with fresh strawberry/blueberry juice. Garlic, buy it raw and take a clove of it after slicing into it to make it easier to digest and release its magic, chew a little before it goes down. I started doing this 2 months ago and at 50 yrs old, it has made a huge difference. I keep it beside my other vitamins I take. I’ll skip a day here and there just because…..

    I also take tart cherry pills to curb gout,(for you drinkers out there like me 🙂 )

    Ive done a lot of research into this stuff just like I have with our draft picks. When it works, it works. And GABA to help me sleep. That stuff is no joke, and its natural.

    Caitlyn Gender ate Wheaties…….’nuff said…

    I’m a lifelong Bucs fan and Michigan Alum. I’ve followed Brady’s entire career since college. I’m a huge fan, but I now have BRADY FATIGUE. When he played for the Pats, he had his indoctrination in the “Patriots Way.” That included limited public profile.

    Since he left the thumb of Bill, he’s been making up for 20 years of lost brand promotion. It’s too late for him. It’s becoming over saturation. Look no further than his IG account. When he played for the Pats, all of his posts were football pictures with some philosophical quote. He got a lot of likes on those post. Since he joined us, I would argue he’s become less popular! His IG pics are receiving far fewer likes with this Brady Brand nonsense. Joe Burrow has 4x fewer followers than Brady, and yet he’s getting triple the likes on his posts. It hurts me to say this as a Brady fan, but he’s becoming a laughing stock around the league. Josh Allen ripped him for the Brady Brand fashion line. Rodgers poked fun about TB 12 over promotion.

  21. Beeej Says:

    Frosted Flakes prolly hasn’t any sugar at all–sugar is expensive. More likely it’s high fructose corn syrup, the most hideous food additive ever invented

  22. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    This reminds Bellingham Bucs Fan of the pre-Big Storm sponsorship anti-craft beer rants from Joe.

  23. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Sounds like Brady has read “Omnivores Dilemma “.

  24. Ash Says:

    Wow what a slow news day frost flakes? Wow lol

  25. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Passingthru, you’re on it today, dude. 😆

  26. mark2001 Says:

    Passing has a point.. or should I say a movement. Actually, most of these cereals have much of the goodness in the grains processed out. They are high in Sugar…calories…. low in fiber, and most of the “nutrition” comes from additives. There are good cereals…. but the majority of them aren’t.

  27. mark2001 Says:

    Even a bowl of Oatmeal with some fruit has most of them beaten by a mile.

  28. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    What does Gronk like…..could be the makings of an article…..

  29. Defense Rules Says:

    TBBF … Sounds like you’re missing your Gronk-a-day article?

  30. DBS Says:

    Can’t have that. That would give TBBF something to do his daily complaining about.

  31. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    Missing it badly….don’t know if I will survive without it…..I guess we have to expect them to subside

  32. Alanbucsfan Says:

    processed sugar + processed corn = diabetes dream team

  33. Mikejp Says:

    I agree with Tom, that breakfast has too much SUGAR!

  34. Buczilla Says:

    I love Frosted Flakes and could care less what Brady thinks. 😀

  35. steele Says:

    But Subway sandwiches full of processed nonsense is good for you?

  36. teacherman777 Says:

    Have you guys seen how obese and ugly we have become as Americans?

  37. Brandon Says:

    Nearly 70% of American adults are overweight or obese…. I’m one of them if you go by BMI even though my BF% is 10%. My point is, most Americans don’t know how to eat and aren’t active enough. The key is to find a way to be healthy that fits you. Find activities that you’ll do and foods that can assist you in being healthy. The key component of any healthy weight maintenance plan… calories in vs calories out.
