There is so much content being published nowadays that it can be very difficult to sift through it all and find high quality information.
This is especially true in the context of performance enhancement, health and hormone optimization.
Very few influencers are publishing science-based, cutting edge content on these topics.
One emerging talent in this relatively obscure niche is Derek from “More Plates More Dates”.
Derek is most well-known for the educational and entertaining content he publishes via his social media persona and website “More Plates More Dates”.
He is also the owner of the dietary supplements company “Gorilla Mind”, as well as a hormone replacement therapy clinic.
High quality, science-based information covering HRT, health, cognitive enhancement, safer practice with performance enhancement, all alongside general mass-appealing men’s self-improvement advice is hard to find, and Derek has carved himself a unique niche that is a hybrid of many of these topics.
He posts a new video on a near daily basis and provides practical strategies to optimize performance and health.
Despite often being lumped into the “fitness” category, Derek has clearly differentiated his content from the traditional fitness influencer with his unique approach to bio hacking, nutrition, genetic analysis, pharmacology, and more.
Derek’s content is entertaining, but also very educational in nature.
The articles and videos he’s published about hormone optimization and safer practice with PED’s in bodybuilding in particular are chalked full of cutting-edge information and new research.
Back in 2016, Derek started writing blog articles and posting them through his website “More Plates More Dates”, while also working for a supplement company.
He started his YouTube channel shortly thereafter.
In December of 2017, Derek launched the dietary supplements company “Gorilla Mind”.
Gorilla Mind is a supplement company that sells a variety of products designed to support optimal health and performance.
They are most well-known for their Nootropic and pre-workout formulas.
Derek’s passion for hormone optimization also led him to investing in the hormone replacement therapy industry in early 2020.
Derek’s content and experience has drawn in a lot of interest over the past couple years, leading to him working with an array of high profile individuals.
These include professional athletes, Olympic sprinters, Mr. Olympia level bodybuilders, and Hollywood actors.
He has also amassed a following on YouTube of 180,000 subscribers.
Telling us about the growth of his YouTube channel Derek says, “The first 1000 subscribers are always the hardest, and then the first 10,000, then the first 20,000, etc.It snowballs once you start getting traction, but keeping my head on straight and focusing on the long-term growth potential I knew I had in me if I kept pushing is what kept me going.”
It is an amazing experience to interact with a person who has such an amazing zeal for his work and life.
Derek is not just a health and lifestyle expert, but it seems that he makes one helluva life coach as well. You can find him at various platforms through these links:
