James I've been training for 3 years now. Went from 2-3 days training to 6-7days training. Also I'm 4 of those days I train a second time. I wanna get huge and muscular but not put on a lot of body fat. I' Weigh 245 and at 14 percent body fat. I eat 6-7 meals a day. A lot of eggs and beef with veggies. I wanna drop more body fat but I can't drop any more weight. I drink 1gallon or more a day. Please give me your advice

I lost 30 lbs. lifting and eating in a defecit. I recently lowered my caloric intake by 400 calories again, and started doing cardio. I was loosing the same ammount of weight as I was on maintenance. So, I'm back to eating at maintenance. I lost 5 pounds while in maintenance.

This is a myth. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19943985 Do you have data to back up what you say? I just want to know if you have data to show to prove what I posted wrong. Everything that I have seen concludes that meal frequency does not help to lose weight. Who is to say a stove operates the same as your metabolism?

But it probably helps preserve muscle
Tminus Fiveequals (1 year ago)
James, I don't believe it's working like you describe. I think it's calories in, calories out, no matter what. That means, if I keep eating the whole day till I reach 5,000 calories on that day and I spend 3,500 calories from what my body needed then I will gain weight. The same is true if I split those 5,000 into two meals, say one meal in the morning and one in the afternoon, I will still gain weight. If someone eats 1,000 calories a day, even when they eat these calories in just one meal and the next meal is gonna be the the day after then they will keep losing weight no mater what. I don't believe the "Wood-stove" example applies very well to this situation. I also know some people who eat all day long and several times a day and they put on so much weight, they are fat actually. Whenever I see them they eat something. Don't they "put wood on the wood-stove" all day long ? Why isn't their metabolism super fast and strong ? These people at the desk are snacking like no end, that means more wood all the time. Calories in , calories out, regardless the meal-timing. Thanks

So where does this leave intermittent fasting as a weight loss method?
erekllama (1 year ago)
Butcher Wing - There are people who practice IIFYM and IF and still get amazing results. With IF, you count macros and obviously try to eat the best foods, however it's still largely a caloric balance/imbalance.
G FUCKURSELF (1 year ago)
That is a really good analogy.

James what is your thoughts on intermittent fasting
erekllama (1 year ago)
Adolf Hipster - Huh, you know, that would make sense. I suppose you could be right. Terry Crews is one of the Old Spice guys FYI.
Adolf Hipster (1 year ago)
+erekllama I don't know him. Was he large before he started IF? Because sometimes that's the case. Like those who went vegan, and say you can be huge, but built their foundation traditional way.
erekllama (1 year ago)
Adolf Hipster - What would you say about Terry Crews? He follows IF and is rather large.
Adolf Hipster (1 year ago)
James Overbey its certainly working but only if your goal is to be small lean or medium built. if you want to be huge its impossible that way
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
like I continue to say, different approaches are going to be optimum for different people in different circumstances.  As I am mainly interested I maximum lean tissue retention or even gain (while dropping body fat) I do not employ intermittent fasting.  You already fast the entire time you are sleeping at night.  The optimum opportunity for your body to repair itself is also the longest period of time you go without consuming additional nutrients.  that is enough fasting for me.
Harry Sandhu (1 year ago)
Great video. But how would you explain why intermitted fasting works for a lot of people in terms of fat loss, given it has a fairly long period of starvation/non-eating?
Harry Sandhu (1 year ago)
Got it. Thanks for awesome content! keep it up brother!
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
Because it is starvation - starvation works.  Remember, if you reduce calories but still reproduce that intake every day consistently, you will adapt to that - but if you are truly starving yourself while in a severe enough deprivation, intermittently, you will drop fat for some time to come - even so, eventually, you should slow that roll unless you cut back even farther.  If you are throwing additional expenditure into the mix while "fasting" then you are burning your body up so of course that "works" as far as loss of body mass.  Either way, I do not see anything "optimum" about any such approach unless you have no concern about muscle retention (and forget about gain).  Sure, lots of ways to drop body mass - and many people go those routes and live happily ever after.  If I were to advise someone whose only interest is reduction in body mass, hell, that would be easy and I could do it on the fly without even giving it any real thought - plenty of avenues to go down where someone can figure out an approach to suit that desire.  Now if you want to drop body fat but do not wish to lose any muscle (and very likely gain some) - that is what interests me here.  those I am just beginning to work with will achieve this - as will be revealed after 90 days - provided they put in the work.

What about keto diets ? Could you please make a video about high fat diets ? Thankyou for your great videos !
Chris Galea (1 year ago)
Thankyou ... will eagerly wait !
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
Keto works, no question about that, and I use it from time to time if I feel pressed to drop down quickly - sometimes I like to begin my diets that way (for myself) but it is NOT my preferred way throughout.  But yes, I can do a video - thanks for the request, brother.
Yannic (1 year ago)
when talking about increasing/decreasing metabolism are we always assuming that there is no exogenously taken T3 or does metabolism depend on more factors than just the hormones T3/T4?
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
No thyroid hormone unless you are diagnosed with a thyroid problem - which could be if you are way over weight but not necessarily.
David Schmock (1 year ago)
I agree 100%
Paul Phillips (1 year ago)

Back to 6 meals i go!

TELL THEM THE TRUTH (1 year ago)
James if you can do a video about training for naturals, what training, frequency, rep ranges and so on. Appreciate your work buddy = )
Adolf Hipster (1 year ago)
basic diet and training rules James is putting here in his videos works regardless both ways. metabolism, protein intake, feeding way, all will work for natural as well
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
I can, indeed - but, in my opinion, as a natural OR enhanced, you have to learn your body and that takes time and some experimentation.  Different approaches work for different people - that applies across the board.  Now if you are natural and learn what works for you, then go the enhanced route, things can change in many ways; likewise, if you have been enhanced for some time and come off, your approach will have to be reassessed then too.

anabolic drugs - hormones ( test, hgh, igf-1 and so on) - basically anabolic PEDs
truthhurtshipsters (1 year ago)
TELL THEM THE TRUTH It would be same as I guess "not natural". What is your definition of not natural weight lifter?
Kostadin Andonov (1 year ago)
I notice when I eat less calories then I need I feel lethargic, more lazy. I just want to not do anything.
Samuel Brown (1 year ago)
OK. I lost 112lbs. in twelve months. I did it by eating twelve to fourteen hundred calories. I did go from two meals a day to four at the same time. Obviously, they were much smaller meals. I also had to walk frequently, probably four to six hours a week, in half hour increments. Then I took two months off where I didn't count calories or watch my macros. I put on six pounds over that period, but it was worth it to allow my body to rebound. Just my thoughts on the matter.
Samuel Brown (1 year ago)
D C Thank you.
D C (1 year ago)
Samuel Brown Just saying great work and we are proud of you for having the fortitude for such an accomplishment.
Samuel Brown (1 year ago)
James Tiny Vest thank you sir. you are absolutely right when it comes to protein sparing. I definitely wanted to make sure that I was getting enough protein so that I could lose as little muscle as possible. I actually began with a protein sparing very low calorie diet to jumpstart my weight loss and then I increase my calories up to between 1,200 and 1400 calories a day.
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
that was smart, and I do the same.  I do not restrict calories when injured - never.  There are many, many ways to drop body fat.  there are fewer ways to do it while sparing or even gaining muscle.  And, as always, different approaches are going to work best for different individuals - big congrats on your dramatic success.  You should feel very proud and pleased with what you have accomplished.
Samuel Brown (1 year ago)
P.S. I also had a shoulder surgery during that break. So I didn't want to restrict calories prior to surgery, or during the healing process. So one month before and one month after surgery.
Big Ed Scaggs (1 year ago)
Great Video brotha. When I was eating 6 times per day, I was lean. But, when I cut it to 3 times, I put on almost 30 pounds on a years time.
Big Ed Scaggs (1 year ago)
I went back to 6 meals on January 1st. I've already lost 5 pounds. And thats with "light" cardio.
Nick Dwyer (1 year ago)
Big Ed Scaggs would you have to burn that fat off or could you go back to 6 meals a day and lose that 30 pounds that way

Hi Tiny, jeezus u look like u put on some size. informative as always, any contest coverage coming up this yr. What your thoughts on Dalas Mccarver physique ? Good to see a bodybuilder with calves.
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
Dallas has immense potential - once he really gets it together and gains a bit of maturity, if he stays the course, he will be a real heavy hitter.  Of course a lot can happen from now to then but he certainly has crazy potential.
Nick Dwyer (1 year ago)
So i think I have this problem but will I lose the fat I got by just eating more or will I have to eat more plus do cardio?
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
I like doing things incrementally.  first, get a solid diet together employing whole food sources which are the most costly (calorie-wise) to digest and absorb, get your water right, do all the little detail stuff to as far as organizing which meals where, etc.  That should get things moving (of course you first need to know where diet is right now).  Then slowly add cardio - do it correctly.  Start out minimum amount of cardio, maybe only twice a week.  Take pictures every two weeks for assessment.  As progress slows, elongate cardio sessions by 5 mnutes or add a third, continue on, modify as ever you need to with the diet, etc., etc.  I like to burn the fat off - I like dietary thermo and cardio - I do not starve it off.  Anyone can starve themselves - you don't need much help in doing that.

Perfect !
Murphy Brown (1 year ago)
never could find your email but I wanted to tell you that my cut has change to a recomp?... lol after 2 year it seems like my body won't allow me to under 250 and keep my gains and strength guess I'll just be like you big brah.. focus on the mirror and less on the scale...
James Tiny Vest (1 year ago)
That is exactly right - you hold the weight long enough, body resets and now accepts it as your norm.  It will be easier to exchange - drop fat and replace with muscle - that is GOOD all day long, no bad in that situation, brother.  Unless you WANT to flat out weigh less - you can do that, too, but it will be a little more work but not terrible, just not as fun.
