Tom Brady keeps away from desserts and other such sugary treats, but there is one item that Brady swears by. His infamous avocado ice cream.

While many have adopted certain aspects of Brady’s lifestyle choices, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t seem to keen on adding avocado ice cream to his diet anytime soon.  

Tom Brady can keep his avocado ice cream to himself 

Talking to the Washington Post, Roethlisberger who himself is nearing his 40s was asked about his fitness journey over the offseason. The Steelers QB made headlines when he turned up to training camp looking to have lost a few pounds off his weight.  

“I’ve really focused on having a trainer, my body… Part of it’s football. But part of it’s life. I’m not getting any younger. I’m almost 40 years old. So you’ve got to take care of yourself,” said the QB. 

But there’s one thing that the two-time Super Bowl winner made clear he’s unwilling to do to stay in shape.

“Nothing against Tom Brady, but I’m not eating avocado ice cream,” he said. “Yeah, you have a chef and you try and eat healthy. But you’re eating healthy because you want to be and feel good,” he added.
