Re: Metabolism restart - is this factual?
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.
