Drew Brees's Anti-Inflammatory Eating

Even at 39 years old, Drew Brees is still putting up monstrous numbers for the New Orleans Saints.

He led the NFL in passing yardage in five of the past seven seasons, and he's still the man in the Big Easy in 2018.

Brees's diet is perhaps the biggest reason why he's been able to stay so good for so long.

He has a number of food allergies and sensitivities, which he strives to avoid, including gluten, dairy and nuts.

He's big on fruits and veggies as well as lean proteins such as grilled chicken and fish.

Brees uses many soy-based products in place of dairy, such as soy milk and soy yogurt.

Knowing which foods react well with his body has helped Brees avoid inflammation and continue to compete at the highest level.
