comment How to mimic hills running on treadmill?
That's a fallacy, @Jaydee. It's the same fallacy that is behind the statement "Running on a treadmill is easier because the belt moves backwards for you". I don't get into the physics enough to be able to explain it coherently, however.

comment What credibility or scientific backing does 1g protein per 1lb of body weight have for its applications?
@Mehrad - 80g. The need is usually calculated in a ratio of g/kg. My 84kg reference was just clarifying a slight conversion error, 185 lbs is 84kg, not 83.

comment Lifting babies for strength
I agree, it's ridiculous. I find it difficult to believe that anyone is weak enough (Absent aging or disease states) that they can't lift 16 lbs with both arms.

comment What credibility or scientific backing does 1g protein per 1lb of body weight have for its applications?
84kg, actually, but yes, that would be a good target (84g protein). a 4 oz portion of beef is ~ 27g protein, chicken is ~ 25g, a cup of milk is 8 grams and a cup of cottage cheese is ~ 25g. Not that hard to get to at all.

comment What is an effective and safe way to train shoulders out of the gym?
You could look at the bowflex dial a weight dumbbell sets, or powerblocks. Those would be invaluable to a traveling personal trainer, and allow you to carry a "rack" in your trunk to do presses.

comment Bulletproof coffee and green tea
HOW is it relating to your workout? Other than the vague reference to BCAA, there is no workout detail. What makes you think you are overdoing it on caffeine? What impact is it having or not having on your workouts? You've got a vaguely worded question with tenuous references to fitness. And you will note that the question you linked has already been downvoted and flagged. Yes, nutrition is one of the foundations of good fitness, but we expect the questions to reflect that, not just "Hey, I work out occasionally, is this good to eat?"

One caution, is that it is easy to dislocate toddlers arms at the elbow by picking up/swinging them (Nursemaids elbow).

comment Planning My Workout
Can you elaborate on "16 y/o little fat girl"? While the girl in the picture is thin, she also has very little actual muscle tone, and is most likely underweight. She fits the societal image of attraction, but may not be healthy. If you gave more details such as your actual height/weight, typical daily diet, and any exercise you currently do answers could be much more detailed and informative.

comment Mass doubling for a healthy man from marathon training (summer) to weight training (winter)? Normal?
We can debate the actual percentage, but you're having swings of ~ 40-60 lbs (18-25kg) twice a year. That in itself is not really healthy, there are a lot of health problems that can come with large weight gain/loss cycles like that.

comment Mass doubling for a healthy man from marathon training (summer) to weight training (winter)? Normal?
As Dave points out, you only increased your mass 17 kg, from a starting point of 65 kg. That's slightly more than a 25% increase, hardly "doubling" your mass.

comment How to solve major calorie deficiency problem for very active person on plant-based diet with insufficient appetite?
Voted to close. The only relation to fitness is a vague reference to working out 1-2 hours a day.

comment Is this a suitable diet for weight loss?
Voted to close as off topic. The only vague reference to fitness is "At 6pm doing aerobics/crunches".

comment Running + Strength (main goal: lose fat)
@Freakyuser - Why? x-country teams use weights in various forms while running 60-100 mpw.
