How Tall Is Derek from More Plates More Dates?
In a 2020 More Plates More Dates YouTube video, Derek claims to have gone from 6’0 (183cm) to 6’1” (185cm) because of taking large doses of HGH (human growth hormone). However, I find it unlikely that his height actually increased from taking performance-enhancing drugs.
For one reason, your height cannot change significantly once your growth plates are fused in adulthood. Also, while there are multiple studies showing HGH administered to children can increase their adult height, no such studies exist for adults taking HGH.
In the video below, Derek explains how he discovered he had gotten taller by comparing his height with his dad, who is at the age where he is likely shrinking. And any measurements they took would be imprecise compared to getting measured at a doctor’s office.
Therefore, it’s more likely that Derek from More Plates More Dates real height is around 6’0”.
