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.

180 grams of protein is a waste. Your body does not have the need for that quantity of amino acids and thus it ends up metabolizing amino acids for energy, a highly wasteful inefficient process. Weight loss however is all about calories, not... (more)

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.

10g BCAA before workout (no meal), carb/protein after workout then balanced meals form there on. The fasted training will help to burn fat and the carb/protein post workout with help to build muscle.
