Metabolism restart - is this factual?

I am interested in the science of doing metabolic restart where you increase the bodies insulin sensitivity and thus burn more calories at rest.

Is this true?

    You cannot "reset"  or "shock" a metabolism. You can however over time rebuild it. The guy who he's talking about in that video has simply chipped away at his metabolism so much to the point his body is holding on to whatever it can for dear life. 1,700 to most WOMEN is what they burn without exercise. I stopped listening to that video when he started telling me to chug down 2 ltrs of water and turkey (not chicken, because apparently it has too much fat) to reset it.
     
    If you're interested in the science behind metabolism, then I'd suggest to stop listening to someone whose uncle told him so and follow well respected names who study the science themselves and back up what they say with research. This is a great video by Dr Layne Norton on metabolic damage and how to build it back up again.

    If you've been doing low carb for a long time, the body does down regulate various enzymes and processes involved with utilising carbohydrate effectively. So it does seem sensible to add carbohydrate into the diet very gradually to avoid fat gain. Although with recent studies showing protein has a negligible affect fat gain, I would say protein intake can be increased a little more quickly if not immediately.

    Not sure if we read the same study, but Dr Jose Antonio had a group overfeeding on protein, feeding them upwards to 4.4g per kilo to subjects and found no increase to fat mass.
     
    There are also some studies out there to prove that your breakfast can actually program your metabolism for the rest of the day as well. I made a thread on that which can be found here.

    OP, what E. Hulse describes in the video is basically PSMF - protein sparing modified fast. Where you take just enough protein to limit muscle breakdown and keep calories as low as possible. That's why chicken has 'too much fat' in this sense. He only describes it quite unprofessionally, let's say. But as far as I know, PSMF is the most efficient crash diet for loosing body weight/fat.
