David Ortiz Doesn’t Sound Eager To Try Tom Brady’s Diet Anytime Soon

David Ortiz isn’t trying to turn back time, so he’s going to enjoy what he eats, thank you very much.

The Boston Red Sox legend appears to be loving retirement, and that means getting to eat what he wants. So, no, he won’t be trying Tom Brady’s “TB12” diet anytime soon.

“My wife always wants to talk about the Tom Brady diet, and she wants to get me on it,” Ortiz said on the Barstool Sports podcast “Pardon My Take.” “She always wants to talk about it. I’m like, ‘Beautiful, let me tell you. I’m gonna eat everything you put in front of me, so let’s not even go there. I’m gonna crush it.’

“I was born one day and I know I’m gonna die another, so I’m gonna enjoy life. You’re gonna tell me my boy Brady, he’s not suffering because of the diet?”

Ortiz expressed an unsurprising admiration for his fellow Boston sports hero, but he’ll go ahead and leave the clean eating to the New England Patriots quarterback.
