comment Does eating late at night cause weight gain?
Berin, I think your answer relates more to body composition than weight gain. The biological mechanisms may dictate how the glucose gets stored, thereby perhaps causing a higher or lower body fat percentage, but extra weight (mass) will not be created from nothing.

comment Is it better to use whey protein pre or post workout?
Serious conflicts of interests with your sources. Don't you think a protein powder company is going to proliferate any information that sells more protein? Same with a bodybuilding website that sells protein?

comment touching toes without bending knees exercises
@user2989523 Sure! I've found that really catapulting or springing yourself into the stretch on the way up really helps. Really think about letting go of your upper body and letting the momentum carry you forward as far as possible, while reaching as deep as you can.

comment Weight training without putting on fat
Wendler recommends hill sprints three times a week and I couldn't agree more. They melt the fat off, yet still build muscle and power.

comment Eating 7-8 meals for build muscle but loose fat. How?
I think this is an excellent answer and I couldn't agree more. I think the results are pretty much in on nutrient timing. I suppose one caveat would be people like Michael Phelps, Jay Cutler, or Rich Froning who eat 10k+ calories a day and physically can't fit that quantity of food into their body unless they spread it out throughout the day. But those people are freaks. :)

comment Fitness plan for an achieving high school freshman
Great answer! Any suggestions for the OP about what kind of routine he could start on if he's already able to perform all of those exercises?

comment Is this breakfast reasonably healthy (new to all this)
You should tell us about your goals -- "healthy" is subjective. Do you wish to lose weight, build muscle, have energy for half marathon training? Generally speaking, you should eat for your protein needs (~1g per lb of lean body mass), then fill in the rest of your caloric needs with carbohydrates and some fats. If you want to lose weight, you need to know how many calories you burn per day, and eat 100-500 calories below that. It takes work and willpower. You can try unprocessed food diets (ie, paleo diet), which intrinsically limit calorie intake if counting is not an option.

@SirSC I read the article and your answer (by the way, the article doesn't mention anything about muscle gain). I'm saying the article is poor and deceptive, and the information doesn't come from a creditable source.
