NO. Muscle weighs more than fat. Even BBers cutting for comp can't do this OR they would have found the holly grail in nutrition ballance.

2. I take dextrose and wondering can I substitute if for fruit or is it safe to take without fat gain on it? 40g I take.

Yes it is recomended to take dextrose toward the end of work out and post work out. This will be shuttled to the muscle not turned into fat.

3. How eating healthy with no cheat days can it bring you into better shape besides well-being etc

All depends on macro levels. You need a re-feed day if low carbs to keep healthy and cutting. If maintaining 1 cheet day a week won't hurt.
