comment Unusual heart rates and fitness
Nowadays I can easily run over 1 hour with a heart rate above 180, and this does not feel like a hard workout. How could this be if my aerobic threshold was below 150? It doesn't make sense.

comment Advice for improving metabolism burn: how do we keep it in high gear?
It's done in intervals (HIIT). There are studies where the benefits of HIIT (compared to training at 70% of max) have been shown even for heart failure patients, so I don't think you have to be terribly fit to make it work. Note that less calories are burned during HIIT, but metabolic changes lead to increased fat loss; the exact nature of this process is still not well understood.

This is generally accepted, but incorrect. Most effective exercise for fat loss is at >90% of Max HR: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2991639
