Welcome to the first episode of the Melius Performance Podcast.

Today I talk to my friend Dr Reid Reale.  Originally from Australia, Reid is the Performance Nutrition Manager at UFC Performance Institute in Shanghai.

He previously worked as a Senior Scientist with the Gatorade Sports Science Institute and at the Australian Institute of Sport with Olympic Combat Sport athletes.

Reid’s research projects focused on weight cutting techniques, body composition and fight strategies. He also holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
