Episode 26: Nutrition & Recovery
Clint currently works as the Director of nutrition for the UFC working at the performance institute, having previously been at Cornell university working as the sports nutrition co-ordinator as a registered dietician & working as their specialist for eating disorders. In addition to this, Clint himself is no stranger to what it takes to be an elite athlete as a two time NCAA division I All American and is all too familiar with the rigors of weight cuts and dietary requirements from both a professional and sporting stand-point translating that experience into his work at the UFCPI.
