comment Isotonic water in the morning?
4 teaspoons of sugar would not be a good way for me to start the day.

comment Which parameters define a well-balanced full-body strength training program?
If you just want to focus on "strength-training" you should change the title of your question because "fitness training" would include more parameters than just strength.

comment Does muscle strength reduce the risk and problems of injury?
To be accurate, the ITB is not a muscle to be strengthened. The TFL and hip musculature can be strengthened to relieve problems with ITB syndrome, but that is not the same thing as strengthening the band.

comment Losing body fat
Believe it or not, using a smaller plate, cup or bowl leads to smaller portions. "One cup of food on a small plate looks like more than the same cup of food on a large plate.". Breads, rice and pasta are all carbs and are broken down in the body to sugar. If you are cutting carbs and fats you are cutting the two of the three sources of fuel. This site does not really address diet and nutrition. You may want to try SparkPeople for more diet info.

comment Regurgitating during exercise
This U.ofV. article states that one of the causes of reflux is from "exercising immediately after eating (especially jogging or strenuous activity)". But I found this article about HIIT and acid reflux that suggests having a "small amount of food" before ex. (However I don't know anything about the validity of the site's info.) I do know that "this stuff" is acidic and not good for your esophagus.

comment Losing body fat
I agree with @JohnP about a check-up before getting too vigorous. I would have him use a heart rate monitor to be safe. Even though he has never had heart trouble, his advancing age, family history, inactivity and central waistline fat contribute to cardiovascular risk factors. (If his waistline measures 40" or more it is considered central obesity which can contribute to insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.) Berin's rec. to begin with diet and walking is wise.

You could consider using a foam roller. This q/a about muscle soreness may give additional ideas.

comment Is being in a caloric surplus the only way to get fat?
To be technical, you can also put on weight with fluid retention from a variety of causes such as hormones, vitamin B1 deficiency, dehydration, sodium, hot weather, medication or disease.

Body Fat percentage and your waist measurement will give you better information about your progress than your weight.

comment Foot muscle weakness related to overpronation
In addition to the foot muscles, have you already concluded that your lower extremity ranges and strength are normal? Often an over-pronation of the foot may be a result of reduced mobility or weakness somewhere else up the chain. The excessive pronation can be a compensation, not the actual problem.
