Key Takeaways:
  • Calorie Deficit First: Before considering a weight vest, know your calorie maintenance level. James highlights the importance of tracking food intake to maintain a deficit.
  • Weight Vest Protocol: Wearing a weight vest for at least 8 hours a day coupled with a 30-minute weighted walk enhances NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis), aiding in weight loss.
  • Gradual Increase: To counteract plateauing, increase the weight of the vest weekly, aligning with weight loss progress.
  • Adherence and Patience: Consistency with the calorie deficit and weight vest use, even through weight loss plateaus, is crucial for results.
  • Adaptation for Different Lifestyles: For those unable to wear a weight vest all day, aiming for 10,000 steps and incorporating a 30-minute weighted walk daily is advised.
