Default Will go with C.

A. Adipocyte glucose uptake- That's an insulin-world's effect, less likely when a patient is on restricted calorie diet.
B. cerebral keotne utilization- That would be in starvation. Would day 3 d+. (Plus a physician wouldn't starve the patient. )
C. Hepatic lipid oxidation- More likely b/c liver will burn lipids to provide energy for gluconeogenesis.
D Muscle glucose uptake- Again an insulin-world's effect. Less likely here.
E. Resting energy expendicture- I think the body's BMR depends on available fuels. It can't increase if you're decreasing the fuels like glucose etc. while being on a diet.
