comment Should milk be completely avoided during weight-loss work-outs?
The only thing I would add is that fat has more Calories per gram (9 Cals/gram Fat). As long as you don't consume too many Calories, eating a high fat diet isn't going to derail your dieting efforts.

comment Does food temperature affect absorption time and efficieny?
I wonder for how long the food stays at that temperature. I would imagine that by the time the food hit your intestines (where absorption happens), it has normalized to the body's temperature.

comment Training on the border of overtraining
An MMA fighter isn't deadlifting 600lbs. They aren't squatting 600lbs. They aren't benching 500lbs. Mainly because the effort to do that doesn't justify the minimal edge it gives you in a fight. Instead, they spend some time on strength, and most of the time on conditioning and skill work.

comment What are the pros and cons of these 3 types of dumbbells?
When comparing just the handles at $35 to handles and some weights for $50, it seems like a good starter set. Not sure you can get 40lb of weights for $15.

comment Am I taking too many vitamins and supplements?
Yes, but if you have a high protein diet, the calcium is necessary to prevent the body leaching calcium from the bones to process the protein.

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.
