Patriots fans  –  and especially the haters  –  know all about Tom Brady and his odd health habits.

Boston's beloved quarterback has already mystified the world with his avocado ice cream-filled, anti-tomato diet. Now he's sure to ruffle some feathers with his thoughts on how to prevent sunburns, which the superstar talks about his recently released book, "The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance."

According to an excerpt obtained by Sports Illustrated, Brady believes that he can prevent those red, stinging sensations with this one simple trick: drinking water. That's right, the Super Bowl champion thinks that staying hydrated can prevent sunburns.

Apparently the self-proclaimed "fair-skinned Irish boy" doesn't need sunscreen anymore when he hits the beach.


"These days, even if I get an adequate amount of sun, I won’t get a sunburn, which I credit to the amount of water I drink," Brady reportedly says in the book. "I always hydrate afterward, too, to keep my skin from peeling."

While we're not sure what his wife Gisele Bundchen thinks of this skin care tip, the excerpt says that Brady's sister was shocked by his anti-sunburn regimen, who joked that he should market his TB12 Electrolytes product in the beauty aisle. Don't give Brady any ideas.

Using H2O as a sunburn remedy isn't his only controversial idea about water.

According to another excerpt obtained by, Brady also thinks it's a bad idea to drink too much water during meals. The Patriots star thinks that it can "interfere with digestion."
