comment Form Check on Squats: Elbow Tension
Check the video in Dave Liepmann's answer. You don't want the bar on your neck. There's two variations, high bar and low bar. It's relative to the spine of the scapula. @Greg's position is low bar, but not too deep. If it were, it would slide down his back.

comment Calling out for help from all quarters for a near-magical transformation
The goals are not impossible. I lost about 38kg in 7 months. But you can't continue being the same way you are now. There's plenty of other questions around here that can help you fine tune your goals and form a plan of action.

comment Strength training weightlifting workout routine
To adapt to the stress of the training. Essentially, if you increase your weights on a schedule, you'll know if you didn't adapt because you won't be able to get your desired reps at that weight. Beginner programs make 5lb increases every session. Intermediate makes 5-10lb increases every week. Advanced makes 5-10lb increases every 3-6 weeks (depending on the program).

comment Fine tuning meal and exercise plan to improve muscle growth and fat loss
It still looks like you are eating too few calories for all the work you are doing. I provided alternative types of conditioning that complement resistance training. You'd be surprised how quickly you'll burn calories with these alternatives as well. You may try barbell complexes (think superset without putting the bar down). It's light weight, but grueling, and can also accelerate burning calories.

comment Is the book “Wheat Belly” credible?
First, the question is whether this is an observational study or a clinical study. If it is merely an observational study, then it's results should be viewed with skepticism. There is evidence to show that grains have anti-nutrients which pull nutrients from your body. There is also evidence that we consume far too many carbohydrates in general. However, to assign the blame solely on the shoulders of wheat is unfair.

Rice doesn't have a lot of nutritional value, but as a grain white rice is least damaging to your body. It's macronutrient makeup is primarily carbohydrates. nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5712/2
