Derek Hendrickson AKA "Heavy D" has lived in Seattle, Wisconsin, Denver & finally Las Vegas. Realizing his ability to eat excessively in college caused him to weigh over 300 lbs, and he was hit with hard truth from his doctor that if he didn't make severe life changes he might not make it to see 30. Heavy D quickly picked up intermittent fasting which helped him lose over 100 lbs and consistently keep the weight off. Ranking #24 professional competitive eater in the world with Major League Eating, D calls himself the "Donut King" of Las Vegas and can be seen on Youtube, ESPN and more showcasing his unique ability to represent the "Fat Kid Nation".
