Tom Brady the famous quarterback and husband of Gisele Bundchen found it necessary to write a book. Not just any book. A book that sells for $200. The TB12 Nutrition Manual is a limited-edition “living document” containing information about the core TB12 nutritional philosophies and featuring a library of 89 seasonally-inspired recipes that you can use to support your TB12-aligned nutrition plan.
The TB12 Nutrition Manual is designed to be modified and expanded over time using its unique screw post binding: as we periodically update this manual with new or modified recipes, we will send additional pages to all purchasers of the manual.
The manual is printed and hand assembled in the United States, and is printed on thick 100 pound text paper. The covers are made from natural wood with a laser-etched TB12 logo and title.
Tom Brady said in a GQ interview that the TB12 Nutrition Manual is not a cookbook. It sounds like more the secret handbook of a successful athlete. “I always said to Alex [Guerrero], “Alex, when I get done playing, we have to teach people what we’re doing,” because so many athletes would love to have the information I’ve had about how to recover from injuries, how to take care of your body so you don’t get injured, the right types of foods to eat, what real hydration really means, what type of exercise you should be doing in the strength-training room so you don’t hurt yourself on the field. These are the conversations that he and I always had, things that we talked about. When I was laying on the table getting treated by him, he’d be saying, “Well, don’t do this” or “Make sure you’re eating this” or “This would be the right supplement to take for that.”
