If you're thinking Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady are one of those couples that have amazing bodies, yet swear they eat burgers and other bad-for-you stuff? Think again. The genetically gifted couple's chef, Allen Campbell, opened up about what the couple actually eats in a day. And he's not sugar-coating anything — literally or figuratively.

Curious what it takes to get bodies like this couple's? 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 worth noting.

1 Vegetable Soup

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

Fun fact: Campbell even designs his menu for the week and places it on the counter so the couple can see what's on deck.

2 Fresh Fruit

OK, so this is where the couple's diet gets a little more complicated. Bundchen and the kiddos eat fruit, but Brady? Not so much. "He will eat bananas in a smoothie. But otherwise, he prefers not to eat fruits," Campbell explains. Apparently Brady's more of a vegetable guy.

3 Fresh Vegetables

Even then, only certain veggies make the cut for Brady. Because Campbell claims that nightshades might be linked to inflammation (FYI, there's not really any scientific evidence to back this up), he won't serve the quarterback tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants. "Tomatoes trickle in every now and then, but maybe just once a month," Campbell says.

The chef is dedicated to getting the freshest produce possible, and he'll sometimes shop twice a day for groceries.

4 Green Juice

Bundchen 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 —

5 Quinoa

When you think of comfort food, you might think of things like fried chicken or chili. But for Bundchen and Brady, comfort food is quinoa, brown rice, and other whole grains.

"I'm all about serving meals in bowls," Campbell says. "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."

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 Bundchen's Instagram posts, she starts every morning with a glass of warm water with lemon.

7 Lean Meat

The couple sticks to lean meats, but only eats them 20 percent of the time. Campbell's picks include grass-fed organic steak, duck (albeit rarely), chicken, and wild salmon.

8 Granola

For snacks, the couple reaches for small bites handmade by Campbell, including dehydrated fruit and fruit leather, raw granola, and raw granola chocolate-chip cookies.

9 Coconut Water

Bundchen is 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.

10 What Bundchen and Brady Won't Eat

Hide your processed foods, because, Campbell says, "sugar is the death of people." (Maybe inducing fear is one of his diet tactics?)

Other big no-nos for the the Brady-Bundchen family include white flour, MSG, iodized salt, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, eggplant, caffeine, and dairy. So basically, everything at home in my kitchen right now. Good to know!
