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.

comment Is eating rice everyday healthy?
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

comment What weight dumbbells should I buy?
Light is whatever is easy for you. If you can lift 10kg without problem for all your exercises go for it. I've seen some kids try and use 3.5kg and it was too much for them--at least for the exercise they were trying. You'll have to try it out before you buy.

comment If I build up my muscles and then don't use them for a while, then will the “build-up” regress after a while?
Also important to note is the effect of "muscle memory". When you start training again, your body will regain its old strength faster the second time than it took the first time.

comment weight/bodyweight training and some of its “negative” side effects
Look into LeanGains or something similar. You don't have to do the intermittent fasting part, although that does accelerate things a bit. However, carb and calorie cycling (both parts of the protocol) are proven workers. If you are within 15% body fat (flat stomach, no definition), then you can use the "Recomp" protocol. +20% on training days, -20% on rest days--training 3 days a week.

comment How to keep fit while travelling long-term?
Describe what travelling long term means. There's only so much you can do while on a bus, but when you are not sitting there are some things you can do. It just helps to understand what the days look like.
