comment What are water fats and complex fats and how to get rid of them?
nice answer. As far as abdominal fat (aka omentum, visceral fat, or belly fat) and subcutaneous fat being the same, this article may give a better distinction between the two, and why omentum fat is more harmful to your health than subcutaneous fat. (The article also makes mention of a third type of fat in the bloodstream - triglycerides.) Although you can't isolate the omentum from subcutaneous fat, tracking your waist measurement will show if your fat loss is on the right track.

comment Abdominal excercises (with weight) - Easy on the back and fun to do
The abdominal exercises in this answer should be easy on the back. You can add weights with the dying bug and bird dog exercises and you back should still be ok.

comment How do I know if I am using my resistance cord in the right way?
You could try folding the band in half and mark midline with a piece of tape. Then you can step equally on either side of the tape. I've never had a problem keeping it even, so that is my best suggestion.

comment Does cycling tighten hamstrings?
Have you tried using a foam roller? See this q/a for info on releasing the hamstrings. Touching your toes also requires back flexibility.

@DMoore, imo I completely focused on answering the question. Any “insight” as you put it comes directly from the question. I will discuss your other points with you in chat if you want.

@Lego, I'll take brilliant! That's a lot better than the downvote I got. :) Thanks

@Lego, there is a difference between fitness and serious conditions like eating disorders (see the reference to binge-eating in the question).

Sorry, but I have to downvote this based on the lack of medical supervision in the answer. I agree with @JohnP that there is alot going on here, beyond the scope of this site. I think any advice that makes the parents think they can handle this without assistance and delays a medically oriented plan is a disservice to this teen.

comment how to train for sit and reach?
This q/a on how to stretch hamstrings will give you good hamstring stretches. However, as pointed out you need to also stretch your gastroc muscles, glutes, adductors and back muscles. Even loosening up your upper back and shoulders can help you gain a bit more reach.

See Exercises for Posture that specifically target the upper back and shoulder blades as well as other muscles that are affected by prolonged sitting.

Consider improving your ankle control and agility to prevent injury rather than relying on tape. See Ankle Exercises with a BOSU, Proprioception, Ankle Strengthening, Plyometrics
