Tom Brady hinted at potential post-football plans in his weekly segment with WEEI 93.7, saying that in his "next life" he wants to educate others about nutrition and injury prevention.

"It's been quite a learning experience for me over 15 years of playing pro football, and I think there's been a lot of things that I've learned that I would really love to teach other people," he told WEEI.

He elaborated on a recent Sports Illustrated article that revealed every bit of the quarterback's daily routine. His meticulous health regimen includes cognitive exercises to "destimulate" his brain, a 9 p.m. bedtime, and a diet of mostly raw foods in the summer.


"It's a lifestyle approach," he said. "It's eating right, it's the right nutrition, it's working out the right way."

Brady said many football injuries are preventable, and that he doesn't foresee himself having problems with his knees, hips, shoulder, or head.

"I see a lot of injuries around the league and I just shake my head, like man, that's so easily preventable," Brady said.

He said his method is all about moderation.

"If I want to eat a cheeseburger, I eat a cheeseburger," he said. "It's not that rigid."
