If you're thinking Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady are one of those couples that have amazing bodies, yet swear they eat like, burgers and other junk food? Yeah, no. Think again. The genetically gifted couple's former personal chef, Allen Campbell, opened up about what the couple actually eats in a day. And he's not sugar-coating anything—literally and figuratively.

Curious what it takes to get bodies that rocking? Check out the main staples making up the power couple's organic, 80 percent vegetable, 20 percent lean meat diet. But it might be what the duo doesn't eat that's most shocking.

If you thought we were kidding about Gisele and Tom putting away 80 percent vegetables, think again. And you better believe those veggies are organic because, according to Campbell, "If it's not organic, I don't use it."

Campbell even designed his menu for the week and placed it on the counter so that the couple could see what's on deck.

OK, so this is where it gets complicated. Gisele and the kiddos eat fruit, but Tom? Not so much. According to Campbell, "he will eat bananas in a smoothie. But otherwise, he prefers not to eat fruits." Apparently Tom prefers vegetables.

But only certain veggies make the cut for Brady. Since Campbell claims that nightshades are not anti-inflammatory, he wouldn't serve the quarterback tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants.

"Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but maybe just once a month," Campbell says. "I'm very cautious about tomatoes. They cause inflammation."

The chef is dedicated to getting the freshest produce possible, sometimes shopping twice a day for groceries.

4 Green Juice

Gisele helps out a bit in the kitchen, making lunches for her son Benny to take to school. "She packs that herself," Campbell says. But she's also a green juice fanatic, whipping up fruit-and-vegetable drinks for herself—and apparently her little ones, too—before posting them to Instagram.

5 Quinoa

When you think of comfort food, fried chicken or chili might come to mind, but for Gisele and Tom, comfort food is quinoa, brown rice, and other whole grains.

"I'm all about serving meals in bowls. I just did this quinoa dish with wilted greens. I use kale or Swiss chard or beet greens. I add garlic, toasted in coconut oil. And then some toasted almonds, or this cashew sauce with lime curry, lemongrass, and a little bit of ginger. That's just comfort food for them," Campell said.

He's also served them raw lasagna. We're not sure what exactly that entails, but we'd like to see the recipe.

6 Warm Water with Lemon

According to Gisele's Instagram posts, she starts every morning with a glass of warm water with lemon. So even her hydrating routine is miles ahead of ours.

7 Coconut Water

Gisele is kind of obsessed with coconut water straight from the fruit, posting multiple selfies on Instagram with straw-tapped Brazilian coconuts. If she's not drinking a green juice, she's sipping from one of these all-natural beauties.

8 What They DON'T Eat

Hide your Pop-Tarts. According to Campell, "sugar is the death of people." (Maybe inducing fear is one of his diet tactics?)

Other big no-nos for the the Brady-Bündchen family are: white flour, MSG, iodized salt, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, eggplant, caffeine, and dairy. So basically, everything at home in my kitchen right now. Solid!
