comment How reliable is this study for the relationship between heart rate and calories burned?
Well the study only includes running and cycling, so any results are only valid to those forms of exercise, the more similar to them, the more accurate your calculations will be, but if you apply the formula to, for example, weight lifting, you'll be completely off. Also remember to subtract your bmr from the total number.

comment Will training for size increase my strength?
Even for those who are advanced, strength and size correlate substantially. Ronnie Coleman deadlifts 410 kg and bench presses 230 kg, Arnold (who wasn't that big) also have high records. They are nowhere near professional powerlifters, but way higher than the average gym rat.

comment Will training for size increase my strength?
I don't think it's accurate to say that your strength doesn't increase much when your size is increasing. The optimal rep count for size is around 10, doing 1-5 reps/set will certainly increase your strength more, especially for beginners when you're adapting neurologically, but in the long run, you will gain both strength and size in substantial amounts either way.

comment Weight Loss with Hyperthyroidism
Are you absolutely sure you have hyperthyroidism? There are 10 people claiming the condition for everyone who actually has a professional diagnosis... Calculate your actual calorie need and be super-strict about eating below it, do the math and read up on the math if you need to. Weight yourself every day and plot the numbers to see if there's a trend.

comment Frequency of shoulder rehabilitation exercises
Yes, exactly, with one of those colorful rubber stretch tubes. Also one exercise where I held my hands low with ~3 dm distance to eachother in front of me, raising both hands like a two-hand-hitler-salute, with the tube stretched between them, pulling outwards. Interestingly, raising them like this was completely pain-free, while raising them without the tube was painful.

comment How to improve left hand grip strength?
Assuming he's doing mixed grip lifts, regular grip deadlifts should work as well.

comment Lesser evil when it comes to snacks: sweet vs salty
Not really, unless you know swedish :) Robert Lustig is the main advocate for the fructose theory, it's actually quite new science, but there are more and more studies pointing towards fructose being The main cause of metabolic disease. He has a long lecture called "Sugar - The Bitter Truth" on youtube.

Why would you call that a fallacy, specifically?

comment Why can't I lose weight?
Is that number including exercise or is it your resting metabolism? There are a few formulas for calculating resting metabolism and for most people, the more pessimistic formulas are more accurate. 2500 is higher than my resting metabolism, and I'm almost 200 lb.

On the other hand, it is a bit weird that 500 is so often the recommended calorie deficiency, no matter if you're a 100 lb woman or a 250 lb man :) But still, 1200 is a arbitrary number and one can safely go lower without hormonal problems.

comment Why can't I lose weight?
Mostly good tips, but I disagree with 1, 7 and 8. Excess water isn't helpful, drink til' you're satisfied if you don't live in a very warm area. Actually one man went for a fast for a year, he lost 125 of his 207 kgs, all he ate was micronutrient supplements, there is no such thing as starvation mode. Also carbs are not dangerous, and they don't promote fat storage any more than fat does, with the possible exception of diabetic/prediabetic people who can't handle carbs correctly, but that's not an issue here.
