Tim Tebow won’t rule out running for president some day

New York Mets outfielder and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow participated in a interview with GQ Magazine, during which he revealed some interesting facts and thoughts about his life.

Health and diet were one of the topics covered in the interview. Tebow sticks to a strict ketogenic diet that consists of high fat, low carbs and sugars and moderate protein. Avocados are major part of that diet.

When asked by GQ if he eats more than 15 avocados per week, this was his response.

“Honestly, probably four a day.”

Tebow is into avocado smoothies and sometimes eats them plain as meal supplements, per GQ. And, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is not the only athlete who enjoys himself some avocado ice cream.

This was Tebow’s response when asked if he gets cravings for desserts.

“Not really. And one of the reasons is [that] you can make some things that taste really sweet. Avocado is actually something that really helps with that. There’s avocado ice cream.”

Tebow also touched on his future, which could end up involving politics rather than a return to the NFL.

GQ actually asked Tebow about a potential run for president in 2020. His response was rather interesting.

“I don’t know. When I’ve been asked about it, it’s not something that’s out of the realm.”

That’s a pretty heavy, loaded answer. Although, for the time being, it would appear Tebow is concentrating on his regular daily life.

“Right now, other things are my focus. If one day I feel like that’s the greatest way I can help people, then that’s what I’ll do. But that’s not yet. Not this day.”

But now that Tebow has put the words out there, it is hard not to envision him possibly becoming more serious about a presidential run later down the road.

Tebow certainly has a huge fan following, and pretty much whatever he is doing or saying makes the news. His 3.64 million Twitter followers don’t quite add up to the 25 million President Donald Trump has. But we could imagine Tebow’s following would gain some weight if he did ever decide to dabble in politics.

For now, Tebow seems content with his life, which includes work with his own Tim Tebow Foundation.
