Have you ever wondered if you could build muscle on a plant-based diet?  This week, I sat down with Derek Simnett to talk about his shift from being more of a skateboarder, runner type to calisthenics and going to the gym.  Not only does Derek have a perfectly chiseled, muscular physique and inspires others to be healthier, but he is also a certified nutritional practitioner. Derek’s YouTube channel with almost a 250,000 subscribers is a great corner of the internet where you can learn workout tips, how to cook delicious plant-based meals, and see what he eats on a daily basis.  Derek also offers his own e-recipe book on his website.  Derek makes it easy to eat healthier and move your body.

Topics Discussed in the Podcast 

  • How Derek found a plant-based path
  • what made Derek decide to focus on muscle and physique
  • How Derek built his YouTube Channel
  • Tips and Tricks with supplements, iron, protein, meal planning
  • How many grams of protein Derek eats in a day
