    Good day, thank you for the very informative article. I understand the importance of keeping your metabolism boosted in order to lose weight but i seem to have trouble doing it. I already do the things you have mentioned, i walk a least 2km per day, i do a lot of outside work around our house, i always take the stairs at work and i have a fairly healthy diet broken up between 5 meals a day but i still seem to be carrying extra weight. No matter what i do i can’t see to get to my ideal weight of 160lbs, i am stuck at 180lbs and have been for a while. I was wondering if i should look into some form of specific diet or exercise program that i can use to boost my metabolism even more.
