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.

comment What lifts shouldn't I do with a posterior labrum tear?
I agree with @John. Your medical team should be directing your rehab, not people on a site with no knowledge of your orthopedic evaluation.

comment Will sitting in a squat position with weight help me with mobility?
If you search the site you will find several questions that will help you with squat mobility: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/10369/…, fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/6589/…, fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/586/…, fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/5196/…. See if any of those help.

comment What types of hip exercises are best suited for a runner?
This Clinical Review found weaknesses in hip abductors, external rotators and hip flexors on the involved side as compared to the uninvolved side in runners with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) and iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS). So an important factor is the strength of one hip relative to the other, making sure that you strengthen both equally. And I would emphasize abduction over adduction. I was surprised at the hip flexors weakness vs the extensors in the review.

comment Substitute powerlifting exercises for healing wrist injury
@Florian, they are usually a physical therapist or occupational therapist with specialized training. A good one should be able to help. Good luck.
