Default Adaptive Themogenisis

I was wondering if anyone knew or had any insight into just how much the body lowers metabolic rate due to adaptive themogenisis? Like what percentage? and also how long it takes to rebound roughly after eating more. Link to article is below.

It's highly variable and individual but one of the largest drops was measured in the Minnesota study and it was still only 15% of total (the total drop in metabolic rate was 40% but the majority, 25% of that, was due to the loss of bodyweight). It exists but is not generally enormous. Again, high individuality though.
