This will be a LONG blog post. Go to the bathroom, grab a drink, heat up some food.
How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought to yourself.. I need to lose weight. I think we’re all our worst enemies for sure, we see things nobody else does and often, we compare ourselves to photoshopped images from magazines, blogs, instagram etc. I’ve always been rather skinny but in the last ten years I guess, I’ve added more weight.
My weight used to be around 180 and for a six foot tall man, that’s reasonable. My weight over the past three years has fluctuated between 193 and 208. Before bryci and I did our San Diego trip to meet and have sex with porn star and kick ass blonde Aaliyah Love for our website at http://bryci.com.
I had been focusing on my protein, my water intake, I had cut sugars. I dropped nine pounds in two weeks.
When checking your weight, consistency is your best friend. You are at your lightest point approx 30 minutes after waking up, assuming you haven’t started consuming food and you’ve gone to the bathroom. My schedule is hilarious as a coder, I am working to 3-4am some days, so that means I aim to wake 6-8 hours later. Thus the oddness in the times I weighed in.
So we go to San Diego on the 28th and I had a very serious decision to make. Do I stick it out and keep eating smart or do I say EAT ALL THINGS and have a vacation? It’s odd how we reward ourselves with things that hurt us, but now I’m starting to sound like a trainer so I’ll STFU on that. :/
I decided to enjoy myself. Have great mexican food with my wife and try to stay clear of sugar when possible, still eat smart but at the same time, not get upset if I was going to digest a ridiculous amount of calories thanks to Miguel’s mexican food on Scott road in San Diego.
Seriously the most amazing food. High in calories? You bet your sweet potato it is but I told myself.. hey, you got this.
After all was said and done, I gained seven pounds. I was back to 201 when I got home from San Diego.
As of this morning, I am at 197.4 and dropping yet again.
I never doubted I could do this again for a moment.
Why you ask?
Have you ever heard of Tim Ferris? He wrote Four Hour Work Week, Four Hour Body, even Four Hour Chef.
If you haven’t, let me start by saying, you’re welcome. (wikipedia)
I say that because I may have just changed your life. That is, unless you’re one of those people that are set in their ways and refuse to accept that maybe, just maaaaybe there is a better way to live your life.
Sure, for 1% or so of you, you already know these lifestyle or life hacks so you’re already kicking ass. See, Tim is a hacker. Not a hacker in the computer sense, he’s a hacker in the life sense. He thinks we all over do things and he figured out ways to get the same or better results with less time, thus freeing up time for you to concentrate on other things. He has free podcasts on itunes weekly and this guy is worth checking out.
Four Work Week will teach you how to be streamlined, how to be effective and more so, how to stop wasting time.
Four Hour Body will teach you that the gym mentality is wrong. Many gymrats hate Tim because his results can’t be argues with. He borrowed a principal from Arthur Jones who created a method to gain muscle, lose fat and do so with minimal working out. Four hour body is exactly that, a way to get your dream body and only spend four hours per MONTH working out. For those that live in a gym or go over and over, you can see how this can strike a cord in a bad way. Many go to the gym and think they need to work out for hours on end but the reality is, they don’t. Whether they accept the reality is up to them. I myself was a sceptic to this. I thought, look, I used to work out pretty serious and no way you can get the same results in that short of a window of time, unless you’re taking roids or something.
The basic idea behind Four Hour Body’s weight lifting advice is a principal called M.E.D. Minimum Effective Dose.
The Minimum Effective Dose
The minimum effective dose (MED) is defined simply: the smallest dose that will produce a
Jones referred to this critical point as the “minimum effective load,” as he was concerned
exclusively with weight-bearing exercise, but we will look at precise “dosing” of both exercise
and anything you ingest.
Anything beyond the MED is wasteful.
To boil water, the MED is 212°F (100°C) at standard air pressure. Boiled is boiled. Higher
temperatures will not make it “more boiled.” Higher temperatures just consume more resources
that could be used for something else more productive.
If you need 15 minutes in the sun to trigger a melanin response, 15 minutes is your MED for
tanning. More than 15 minutes is redundant and will just result in burning and a forced break
from the beach. During this forced break from the beach, let’s assume one week, someone else
who heeded his natural 15-minute MED will be able to fit in four more tanning sessions. He is
four shades darker, whereas you have returned to your pale pre-beach self. Sad little manatee.
In biological systems, exceeding your MED can freeze progress for weeks, even months.
In the context of body redesign, there are two fundamental MEDs to keep in mind:
To remove stored fat → do the least necessary to trigger a fat-loss cascade of specific
To add muscle in small or large quantities → do the least necessary to trigger local (specific
muscles) and systemic (hormonal) growth mechanisms.
Knocking over the dominos that trigger both of these events takes surprisingly little. Don’t
Now I know what you’re thinking.
Shut the fuck up JD.
Yeah, I know. No way this is possible. No way you can get gains like this. No way it can be this easy and it’s taken up to now for someone to say something.
Let’s remember, this isn’t a new technique. Arthur Jones trained Arnold Schwarzenegger using these principals. Seemed to work out okay for Arnie.
A few years ago, I tested this theory myself. Nothing crazy. We had a simple home gym, a good ol BowFlex. Some of you might remember Bryci posed with it. (back when we were water stamping MEMBERS over dat pussy. lol. Man, how times have changed, we’re fucking nuts now hey? 😀 Wheeeeeeee)
Anyway, so I took Tim’s method to heart and tried it. I found my point of breaking with each workout. That amount of weight you can lift and do 2 or 3 reps with before your body tells you to go fuck yourself. Then I dropped that number down by 25%. Example, if your FUCK YOU number is 100, you drop to 75. Make sense? Then I added five second cadence. THIS IS KEY. What is cadence you enquire? That is the time it takes you do one rep from down position to up position. In cycling it would be the time it takes to do one revolution. We’re not talking about cycling though… just giving you another example.
So imagine grabbing 75 pounds on a bar. Nothing much, right? Wrong. Stand, feet shoulder length apart. straight back, bar in in your hands. Now curl this up to to your chest and again, the key here being cadence… take five seconds to do it. If you do it in two seconds, you’re doing it wrong, start again. you are aiming for five seconds up, five seconds down. Try doing this with no breaks between until failure. Watch how fast your 2-3 hour work out you had planned becomes a 5-10 minute workout. Now, move to the next muscle group.
The hardest part of 4HB is the time between workout. As Tim points out with scientific proof in his book, when you over exert, you kill your muscles. You hamper your growth, you are not helping your frame. You require time between workouts to truly advance so he suggests 4 days between. Workout Monday? Take Tues, Wed, Thurs and Friday off and work out again on Saturday. THIS is by far the hardest part because on day two after doing this method, you’re sore. Day three, you’re getting better and you feel amazing and day three you want to hit the weights again. Stop. Don’t do it. Trust me.
You will see bigger gains by letting your body truly heal.
So I did this and inside a month, my frame drastically changed. Muscle in places I was unaware I had muscle. I wasn’t Arnie or anything, but I grew and I grew quickly. This now is the bible for me. I try and tell others about it and they don’t want to believe me. I get it, I was that way too. Once they try it though, they’re so. fucked. because this is a life changer. No joke.
So now, I am eagerly awaiting my surgery at the end of the month. Then I am down for 2-3 months as my core comes back. (James? What surgery bro? see here)
I want to porn the fuck up. I have a much better gym than before complete with free weights, squat station, pretty much everything I need to transform my body into the one I want and know I am capable of.
The only thing lacking at this point is a capable body that is free from surgery so even then, it’s just a waiting game. That will come in 2-3 months after surgery.

If I am being honest from a nitpicky photographer point of view, I wished 100 times I had other lens with me for this shoot.
I thought the photos didn’t come out as sharp as I know I can shoot, but I was wrong.
The photos came out great. Since then I have bought better lenses too so next time… holy fuck balls batman.
Before writing this blog, I wrote a quick entry in my tumblr over at http://jdbella.com (WTF James has TWO BLOGS? Yes. I am cool like that.)
This answer is about as uncensored as it gets.
Anonymous asks: So dude every guy what’s to know, how was the threesome with two incredible hotties?
I want to tell you it was easy and no big deal, in short… lie to you. Thing is, it was one of those things you joke about happening but never expect it to go down.
I don’t know how old you were when you lost your virginity but if you remember that feeling of excitement but uncertainty juuuust before things started. You know what you’re about to do, you’re excited about it but you’re also pretty confused at the order of things. ummm… how to porn?
Do I stick my dick here first and then there or….
All in all pretty comical, the thoughts going on in my brain. I found myself wanting to leave my body, then grab me by the scruff of the shirt and pull me around the corner and kick my own ass.
Most guys would look at the situation and think.. meh, if I was in that situation, I’d do this, then this, then this… like it’s no big deal but having sex with two women at the same time is one thing, trying to maintain a hard on while filming and holding a 4k camera, keeping the scene in frame, in focus etc and THEN also enjoying what is happening… not as easy as one might think.
Somehow we shot a b/g/g pov blowjob scene and then within 40 minutes, we were shoiting a second b/g/g pov scene with blowjob, riding, fucking, cum swap etc. I shot twice in 40-50 minutes area, although for a moment my dick didn’t want to cooperate and shoot the second load.
It was having too much damn fun!
FUCK YOU – I’M NOT CUMING. THIS IS FUCKING AAAAAMMMMAAAZING! – JD’s penis
I am used to guys hating me because of being @Bryci’s husband but when you add in… and this guy fucks porn stars with his wife… yup, I’m now officially hated.
So how was it you ask? Fucking awesome.
Two girls going up and down on your pole at the same time, your eyes roll back in your head.
You’re pretty much okay with dying at this very moment because getting better than this? Unfuckinglikely.
A girl sucking on the head of your cock while another sucks your balls.
Seriously JD? Just go fuck yourself.
That’s what I kept saying to myself.
It’s just a job, and Aaliyah was amazing to work with. We’ve known her for so long so to hang out with her and power through scene after scene… it was like working with an old friend. Everything clicked, she was amazing.
We had scheduled three scenes, two of which will find themselves inside our site (bryci.com) and Aaliyah’s site (aaliyahlove.com) in Oct/Nov/Dec.. not sure the release schedule. The third scene which is the b/g/g fucking scene.. will release in January on our first dvd we’re putting out. There will also be other stuff on there… but I’m not allowed to talk about that yet. 😉
So yeah, good fucking day for sure.
So there we are. We’re up to date. Sorry it’s taken me some time to blog, I have been swamped but I’m slowly getting caught up.
I have so much porn to wade through, so many stories to tell about it.
We’re getting set up for our next Pornacation in January in Vegas and yes, some fucking will be happening.
If you were in a hotel room with Bryci.. what would you do?
Hope you all have a great long weekend!
I’ll be working and I’m fine with that.
I love my job!
You may have noticed more photos in this post. My blog doesn’t have enough photos so from now on, I am going to try and slam each entry with photos.
