Brad Solomon has a strong background in performance dietetics, with experience at collegiate and professional levels. His work with the UNLV football team and the Raiders likely provided him with valuable insights into how to develop effective nutrition strategies for athletes. Brad is now the Associate Director, Football Performance Nutrition, The University of Texas, Austin, TX.

As the former Director of Performance Dietetics for the University of Wyoming Football Program, Solomon will likely be responsible for developing and implementing nutrition plans for the team's athletes and working closely with coaches and trainers to optimize their performance. His focus on body composition in NCAA Division-1 football athletes suggests that he recognizes the importance of tailoring nutrition strategies to specific sports and athletes, which can significantly impact performance.

Brad goes into great detail on weight gain, weight loss, post-workout snacks, pregame meals, fueling at half-time, hydration, and nutritional supplements that he approves. If you are interested in what it takes to fuel for performance, this is not an episode you want to miss!

Please Note: **At the time of this recording, Brad worked at the u of Wyoming. He recently accepted a similar position at the University of Texas.
