comment Mom Losing Her Mobility Because of her Weight Gain
@EricKaufman - Where in there is any question related to fitness? There is "What can I do, what should I do, why is this so unfair to us?". Not to put too fine a point on it, but you have a habit of answering every question that comes along, on topic or not. You gave a good answer, but it is basically an extended version of "go see doctors".

comment Mom Losing Her Mobility Because of her Weight Gain
How does this get 4 upvotes? It is wildly off topic, and the only answer is that she needs to get to doctors, both medical and psychological. I absolutely sympathize with your situation, but all we can really tell you is that it's very dangerous to be that weight, and you need to get her to professional intervention, either voluntarily or otherwise.

comment Shoulder pain, around the cuff. Any help?
Unfortunately, there is no real way for us to diagnose pain over the internet, especially in a joint as loosely structured as the shoulder. Could be the SITS muscles, ligaments, nerve impingement, etc etc. Best thing is to see a decent ortho.

comment Are there exercises to help strengthen my little toe?
As a small aside, if you've ever stubbed a toe, there's a good likelihood that you've fractured it. And if you have been in martial arts for any length of time, it's also likely that you've had some bone/joint damage in the toes. It's almost inevitable after a while.

comment Compression Sleeves/Socks for Achilles Tendonitis
Kinesio tape is still somewhat controversial and unproven. It's certainly been a fad for a bit, but studies have failed to show help/improvement. But, if it works for you, great! :)

comment Beginner Runner. Cannot go any further
Slow down. You're likely running too fast. Other than that, there are a lot of other questions about building distance on here, such as: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/2629/…

comment High metabolism problems
Erik's answer is correct. A 5 lb gain in 1-2 days is all food/water, and not permanent. (And vice versa). True fat or muscle gain of 5 lbs will take much longer.

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
True, it's still around, but it's rubbish. :p

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
Voted to close as being too broad, as you ask four very broad questions in the same paragraph. The only way to truly tell your "maximum" heart rate is through a progressive stress test.

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
I won't downvote it, but you should add that the "220-age" is one of the worst myths in exercise science.

comment Why do artificial steroids build muscle while artificial leptin does nothing to prevent hunger?
While this is a great question, it's not really on topic unless you can relate it to your own fitness program. How would knowing this information help your own fitness goals? As it stands, it's interesting trivia.

comment I can't breathe through my nose, does this cause excessive sweating during exercise?
NO NO NO NO NO NO! Do NOT do this. If it is medically necessary, physicians can do facial procedures. "falling on your face" at a gentle jog can produce severe injuries, up to and including paralysis if you hit at an angle. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!

comment real time visualization of heart rate data on a graph
HOW is it fitness related? How would knowing/seeing this information help your own fitness program? Your basic questions is "I need an app to do X". Just because X relates to a body part doesn't make it fitness oriented. Same if I asked "I want to plot my O2 sats on a graph. What app will do that?" Simply saying "While I do exercise" doesn't make it on topic.

comment real time visualization of heart rate data on a graph
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an application recommendation that isn't fitness related.

@EricKaufman - Fair enough. Just seemed odd. :)

comment How many Honey do I need for a UltraMarathon 80K and 4400meters D+?
@Artemination - This is just basic calorie math, and pretty much irrelevant to your personal situation. Some people can't absorb honey without a lot of water, people's calorie absorption rates vary wildly. The best way to find out is to use honey in practice and see how you feel.

comment trying to get my size so i can order a fitness belt online
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about sizing.
