I quite literally feel your pain. Don't have an answer though.

comment Scapular contraction: should I always do it?
For dips, I'm concerned about you slouching down. Reference medicalexhibits.com/… for shoulder anatomy. I'm concerned about the humerus scraping the supraspinatus or pinching the biceps tendon. So you need to prevent shrugging while doing dips. Your lats can help prevent shrugging on dips.

comment How to lose fat even if “fit”?
@Motivated, I don't see why not. But I would direct questions about specific programs to the person who wrote them.

Honsetly, for you and your weight, I'd start with 2,000 and work from there.

Just evaluate every week and make small adjustments. You may find it takes a few weeks to get to the place where you really know how much to eat overall, but that's going to change anyway depending on many factors.

There's a good chance you do! You probably put your body into starvation mode with that 1100-1650 Cal/day. That's ridiculously low even for someone who is only 140 lbs. Now that your body has the calories it needs, it can use them more efficiently. Just adjust up by 100-200 Calories per week, and down by 200-300 to get to a place where you are at least maintaining.

General rule of thumb, if you are gaining mass faster than 1 lb / 3 weeks you are probably gaining fat faster than muscle. If you are losing more than 1-2 lb / week you are losing more muscle. There are caveats, etc. but those rules of thumb are good enough to work with in most healthy adults.

Increase of muscle would be marked by increase in neck size size with a decrease in waist size, and/or a hip to waste ratio where the hips are more than the waste. An increase of fat would have an increase in waste size, etc and you don't fit your clothes as well. Correcting it is handled in the first three bullets.
