Eat a steak with some Kerrygold, some bacon, a little bit of grassfed beef liver pate, a sweet potato, and some mixed greens with EVOO. Skip the sweet potato if you're worried about gaining fat.

Paleo is not a fitness model diet, it won't necessarily shed those last 4-5% of BF for vanity.

IMO, too much canned food. High sodium retains water. I agree also , you may be overtraining and not giving your body time to heal and it's considering itself injured and holding all calories.

Based on your physical description of yourself you shouldn't be worried about the potential minor weight shift of eating a bit of yogurt. Some people gain or lose eating dairy - relax.
